cutest blog on the block

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned....

........ It's been 4 months since my last blogfession!!!! I can't believe it's been 4 months, I've just had so much on lately that I haven't found the time to get on here but I'm going to make much more effort in future, I've still been making plenty of cards, especially since I had a Gastric Bypass recently so whilst on sick leave I've been working hard in my craft room. Instead of putting my photos on separate blog entries I've just decided to get them all on one then I can start again with separate blog posts for each card. Please excuse my photography skills, I have been researching on the net how to take good photos of your cards and come up with some good tips so hopefully the photos will get better soon.

This one is for my Mams partner who has literally been a little star helping out with our DIY jobs so I made this wallet card using the Pink Petticoat Big Fella kit (and the letters are also Pink Petticoat) and put some CD's inside for him.

This one was made using a leaf stamp from Laura Ashley and the flower was cut on my Silhouette machine then I put it through my embossing machine with the Swiss dots folder, the sentiment was printed from the computer.

This one (as are so many of my cards) was inspired by Sarita on little princess cards, the stamp was free from an issue of the docrafts creativity magazine, I stamped the image all over the pink background with clear ink, I had intended to heat emboss it in clear as well but my heat gun broke so I had to make do with just the stamp. The sentiment stamp is from Kanban's Spring Collection clear stamps.

This was one of those cards where my Mam rings me up and says she needs a Wedding card in 5 minutes can I do one, I think she thinks it's a 2 minute job to make cards, so anyway I came up with this one, the printed paper is Nanna'a Wallpaper from Funky Fairies which sadly is no longer operating and the sentiment is from a clear stamp set of wedding sentiments by Woodware.

This one is very similar to the black, white and red Wedding card above but I used the damask papers in Ocean from the Spring Wishes kit by Pink Petticoat and again the flower was cut by my Silhouette but this time I didn't emboss it.

This one is my personal favourite, it's for my friend who has just had a gorgeous baby girl called Simran, my friend is not a fan of pink so I went for the gingham papers in crimson from Pink Petticoat, the letters and Kraft card are also from Pink Petticoat and the pram and white lace trim were cut out by my trusty Silhouette

This one is as above but I used Ocean coloured doodle dots paper from Pink Petticoat.

Well that's it folks, thanks for stopping by, all comments are greatly appreciated and I promise to be a better blogger in future.

Hope you liked my cards
