Beatrice's Birthday Bird

Just got a commission today to do a first birthday card, this particular little girl wasnt very well when she was born, and I made her birth card as well, so the lady came back to me to make her 1st birthday card.

Welsh Wedding

Has a commission for a card, and to try and include elements of the couple, they are both doctors, the lady also is involved with the girl guides, and the chap is welsh, and likes to play rugby, hmmm... a real toughy! Taking inspiration from Di Hickmans sketch I came up with this...

Using images relating to the couple, I made up the heart collage, used my QK for the names, TLC paper and my trusty Rhonna farrer Swirly stamps! Touched of with red ribbon

Love Birds

This card is for Creative Ideas on Sunday, to incorporate buttons into your project. This card hasn't got as many buttons as I orignally started out using, but I also wanted to use my new birdy stamps, that finally arrived from USA (slightly cheaper). Did see loads of ideas on other people's blog about how to use these little birdies, but cant find any... so if you know of any inspiration please let me know! thanks

Ah! Thanks for the reminder Gillian, this card happens to fit in perfectly for the DCM mid week dare, that I wanted to do and forgot all about!

Excatly what I bought the punch for only a week ago! I love it when a plan comes together, theme for Wedneday Stamper was to incorporate eggs. So where is the stamping? Stamped a sheet of pale ble paper and punched the eggs out and inked in brown, the stamped and embossed the swirls on the brown cardstock, and inked in blue to give the dreamy effect. took me ages to decide on the layout! Can you believe!
