The last of the birthday cards - phew!

Managed to get all the cards done on time and am really pleased with how they came out. I especially like the two Spongebob cards made using my trusty Cricut and the Spongebob Squarepants cartridge.

Birthday Cards

Have been asked to make a few birthday cards this week. Didn't get a start on them at the weekend as we were at BATON competition Sat/Sun down in Clacton to watch Stepdaughters. Troupe won a few prizes and youngest stepdaughter (Morgan) got first for Mascot in the Freestyle Twirling section - WD hun, your dad and I are really proud of you! xx.

Anyway this is the first of the 8 I have to do, hope they like it!

Recipe for this one :
Printed Papers/Image - Forever Friends Collection CD
Sentiment - From Stash
Flourish - Marianne Creatables
Border - Martha Stewart PATP
Leaves - Spellbinders Shapeabilities Foliage
Flowers - Handmade
Cardstock - Papermania Textured Cardstock.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :
Ladybug Crafts - Challenge 42, Circles, Pink & Chocolate
My Time To Craft - Challenge 162, Punches & Dies
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Challenge 123-57

At Last A Start On My Christmas Cards

I normally have 70+ Christmas Cards to send out and this year decided not to buy any in the January sales and make them I eventually got round to starting them!! (Only another 60 odd to do lol). The first batch is from the Me To You CD (no surprise there then!). All based on the same layout/design but used different papers and images.

Card Recipe For This One :
Matting Card - from stash
Christmas Papers - Dovecraft Winter Wonderland and DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas (Don't know if still available, I bought them last year!)
Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiments - Freebie from Internet (Thank you)
Snowflake - Cut using Cricut When It's Cold Outside Cartridge (ran through Xyron and then glittered using Hobbycraft Iridescent Glitter).
Diamante - Hobbycraft

Long Time No Post!

Well it's been a while since I've posted, still been making cards but also had a couple of weeks in Alcudia to recharge my batteries. Will have to try and get back to regular postings. Have a few cards to add today which I've done since my last posts. The first one was for a fellow D/C'r who was getting married on the day of my anniversary and the two after that were for other D/C friends who also share the same anniversary
The next one was done for a wedding we were at a couple of months ago that I didn't get round to adding on here and there are also a couple of belated birthdays that I missed while we were sitting in the sun!

Whatever did I do before the release of Docrafts Me To You (Tatty Ted CD) lol.

Thank You

Just wanted to say a big thank you today to Mandy who did a draw last week which I won. This is the prize (two gorgeous stamps from LOTV and some fantastic and very beautiful Pins):

Mandy had an appeal on her blog and asked if people could send cards for Lyndall (whom the appeal was in aid of). This is the card I sent :

I'm hoping to have a go with the stamps at the weekend and will post the cards as and when I get them done.
