Cocktail Sparkle and Fizz 30th Birthday

Hi all

Today I have been busy making a 30th Birthday card for an order.

One of the things the recipient likes is cocktails so I thought that Chloe's Creative Cards Cocktail stamp range and her glitter was perfect for the job.

The card blank measure 8x8" and is very sparkly. You can see a bit of the sparkle in the photo but not as much as in real life. 

I hope you like. Right now I best go get ready to pick up the hubby from his friends.

Take care all. Thanks once again for stopping by.

Popcorn Thank You Teacher

Evening all, 

Wow a second post in a day!!! I'm getting a bit carried away with myself!!

I was asked to make three Thank You teacher cards. I remembered about the cute school popcorn topper and thought it would be excellent to use the same decoupage topper but make three different cards. I am pleased with how they have turned out.

Here's the first one

And the second

 The Third

All embellishments are fro my stash, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Ribbon from my stash.

Well that's it for now.

Have a good evening all. I'm off out now with the hubby for a bite to eat.

Thanks for popping by

Lili of the Valley - a bit floral

Hi all, well i'm back again this morning with a card I made yesterday for another order.

This time I have used on of the wonderful art pad images from lili of the valley. I'm so sad they discontinued these. 

I have used a round die to cut out the topper and matted this onto another die cut. 

Tha papers I have used are from a nitwit collection called butterfly kisses. I have distressed the edges of the papers and cardstock with distress ink.

The flowers I have used are from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon and gems are from my stash.. The stamped sentiment was from Crafter's Companion which I have had for many years.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Well what can I say about this card that is linked to my trademark style? Well it's bright and it has a hint of glitter on. Well I could say that is my style as I make alot of cards that fit this category. Yes so that's it xx


The Butterflies have been coated in Embossing Powder, and the die cuts have been embossed.

Thanks once again for stopping by
