Tilda in the Pink

Hello again

Before making a long overdue start on my Christmas cards I decided to have a go at the CLP Sketch Challenge No.41 and using the sketch provided I put together this 6 x 6 card.  The base card is smaller than I have been using recently but I was fairly happy with the result.  I have used one of my favourite Magnolia Stamps for the main image and the papers are by Fizzy Moon.  The flower is a Magnolia die and the swirl is a Marianne Creatables die.  Sometimes it is nice to just make a card that is not for a particular person when you have had to make a lot of birthday cards for friends and family.  I have had several birthdays over the past two months and so my time has been taken up with making birthday cards with special people in mind.  I have to make another card this evening for a very special friend who will be 30 years of age on Tuesday.  So back to the grindstone!!!

See you soon.

A card for 105 years

Hello again

I was recently asked to make a card for a gentleman who would be 105 years of age at the beginning of November and after a great deal of thought and several prototypes this finally was the finished article!     I do not know the gentleman personally and I could not help but wonder what must it be like to have lived for so long,and have so many memories.  I hope he likes the card and that he has a lovely day.

Off now to make a few more cards.

Not long to Halloween

Hi everyone

Not been around much recently due to work commitments but hopefully back on track now.  This card has a Halloween flavour to it but I think I could use it for anyone I wish a 'Magical Birthday'.  I am entering this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge.

The papers are from Pink Petticoat and I have used two stamps from Lili of the Valley plus the Martha Stewart branches punch.  I have coloured the image with copics and embellished finally with Card Candy.

Hope you like it.
