For mum


This is the card I made for Mother's Day. I went over to see mum this afternoon - shame that John wasn't feeling that well, so stayed at home.

For the background of the card I used a Sheena Douglass embossing folder with my eBosser with a piece of lavender DCWV card which I then distressed with victorian velvet ink.I used a scalloped edged 8 x 8 card blank. Nearly everything else on the card is from Hunkydory kits, apart from the chipboard sentiment at the top and the paper one at the bottom.

More mid month CCAYR inspiration


This is my second design card for CCAYR mid-month inspiration, where the challenge is 'cute critters'. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries here.

I inked the edges of the shaped card with mustard seed distress ink. The critters image is another favourite Penny Black, 'joyous hymn', coloured with chameleon pens, mounted on to red mirror with a few gems added and a couple of sentiment strips.

CCAYR mid-month inspiration


This is my first design card for CCAYR mid-month inspiration, where the challenge is 'cute critters'. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries here.

I used a music embossing folder with a piece of DCWV card and gently sanded this to lighten the embossing a bit. I used a favourite Christmas Penny Black stamp, caroling penguins, colouring with spectrum noir pens and die cutting with a Nellie Snellen die, including the surrounding red mirror card.
