A gift not a card

Well I thought that I would have a change from making cards and wanted to make something abit different butr also useful as a gift for someone. I decided to make this calender. The background paper was from Crafters Companion everyday CD and I cut on the tags for the months and days using my cricut. To hang them onto the calender I just used ear wires held on with brads. The stamps are again from Crafters Companion and are the Cute Companions range.

Just to say Thank You

Well the weather here is truly awful and I think it has snowed everyday for a week, so what better excuse to craft !!!!! I went on an amazing craft weekend with Crafters Companion and as a way of a thank you I have made this card. The backing paper if from the Crafters Companion Lavender flower fairies and has been printed on their fantastic pearlesant paper. I have used some mulberry flowers dipped into some glitter and a couple of beads with a small bow, made with my ultimate pro as embellishments. The topper has been made from the Cute Companions Adorables stamp and I have used glossy accents on her wings. The pop up card inside has been made using oddments from my craft box and a X Cut butter punch.

Baby Card

Hi well this is the card that I am entering into the Blog challenge this week for Charisma cardz. I made this card using Popcorn the Bear from Crafters Companion I thought it would be a good card to keep in my stash in case I need a card quickly, as this is neither Blue or Pink it will be ideal. I used the teabag folds on the corners to add a bit more depth.

Never Ending Card

Hi everyone thought I would pop this card on my blog that I have made today. It is a never ending card and have made it to enter into a competition, fingers crossed. I thought it would be quite a quick card but there is alot of cutting out for the matts and layers and it takes quite a few toppers. I used my cricut for the christmas tree and the snowflakes. Hope you like it.
