Hubby's Birthday

Hubby's Birthday 


Hi everyone, I hope that you're all having a lovely weekend. I'm 
spending today in my crafty nook, I'm hoping to make a start on 
my Christmas cards instead of leaving it until last minute like I 
did last year. 

The card I would like to share with you today is the one that I made 
for my Hubby's Birthday last week.






To make this card I've used Authentique design papers & First Edition 
design papers, Black card, Garden Twine, Gold Satin Mirri, Black Gems, 
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink and a Die cut frame from my stash.







I cheated with the image and have used a cute LOTV Topper, which 
I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink.


 Well I'm off to go make a start on my Christmas cards now so I 
will catch up with you all again soon.

Hi everyone, before I share my latest make with you all today, I would 
just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has sent messages of 
support over these last few weeks, they really helped to lift my spirits and 
remind me of just how lucky I am to have so many wonderful and thoughtful 
friends and you mean the world to me. 


Well the weather has been lovely here these past few days so I've been 
spending some time in the garden. Sadly, nothings started to bloom as yet 
(only the pansies) but fingers crossed that over the next few weeks, the 
gardens will be full of colourful blooms. 



Anyhoo onto a card that I made using another of my Hannah Lynn 
"Punch of Colour Girls" images. I coloured this one up a few days ago 
using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers.







I used the following to make this card 

First Edition Design Papers, Marianne Corner Die, Die Namics Circle Dies, 
Tonic NUVO Glitter Drops & Glossy Drops and Ranger Glossy Accents.







I used Promarker & Flexmarkers in the following colours 

Cool Grey 1, 2, 4 & 5
Soft Aqua, Cool Aqua, Oasis & Frosted Jade 
I then added some Sakura Gelly Roll to highlight and also 
some Glossy Accents on the lenses of her Spectacles 







I'm off now to mow the lawns and I'll be back again soon, 
have a fab week everyone :)
