Belated birthday wishes


It's always handy to have a card like this in reserve, just in case it's needed.

A white card blank with a square aperture behind which is a snippet of green card topped with a flower from stash and with a Craftwork greeting mounted on to another snippet of green card.

Birthday wishes


This is a card that I've sent to my niece. I have to confess that a bit of upcycling has gone on here because I've partly used a card I made a long while ago - I took the image and other bits off it and added the panel with the pink glitter border, the oval with the vintage girl and the Craftwork cards sentiment panel. I also managed to find another flower to use.

You are in our thoughts


A CAS card using a white blank with a square aperture behind which I used a pink snippet of paper topped with a prima flower. The sentiment is a lovely stamp designed by Lynn Lockwood for Funstamps 'in our thoughts' - simply inked with memento tuxedo black and the flower coloured with a copic to match the pink paper.

Once again, hopeless trying to get a 'white' photo, but it really is white!

Still more red and green for CHNC challenge 121


Another red and green card for CHNC 121, again using elements from 'stocking surprise' by Hunkydory, matted on to an offcut of Hunkydory card that was left from making a card some time ago.

The verse says:

I made a Christmas wish for you
for a holiday full of pleasure.
Friends and family all around
and memories to treasure.

I wish for you a Christmas filled
with joyous holiday cheer.
I wish you a Merry Christmas
and a very Happy New Year.

CHNC challenge 121: red and green must be seen


It's time yet again for a new challenge on my CHNC blog - the weeks go by so quickly - CHNC challenge 121 is 'red and green must be seen' - other colours can be used as well, but red and green must be there.

For my first card for the challengeI have used a holly digi from Shelly's images, flipping and rotating it in Microsoft Picture It, transferring it into Publisher and then printing directly on to the card blank (having tried it first on paper, adding red gems and a My Mind's Eye 'all is bright' 3D sticker in the middle (this was part of a prize I won recently). I am sorry that the card looks pink, but is in fact white (I wish the better weather would come so I can take pictures outside - might try to get a better picture in the morning):
