Dominic's Dinosaur

Jane at work asked me to make this card for her Nephew, Dominic. Apparently he's a big fan of the T-rex from Toy Story, so I googled free colouring pages of this dinosaur and coloured him in with my Promarker pens, then cut him out and mounted him onto yellow card, I then added a round red sun and added some slightly purple grass. Why purple you ask??? Well, when the sun sets, it does look a little bit purple...don't you think? Anyway, I wanted to steer clear of the usual BLUE for boys colour scheme and thought this green dinosaur on the unusual background did the trick nicely.

Jane was well happy with it anyway, and that's all that counts really. Hope you like it too?
Thanks for stopping by.

Lili's Flowers

Hi guys and girls
Here's another really simple and quick card I made for Elaine's birthday. Just some really simple background paper, a Lili of the Valley image, that I coloured with my beloved Promarker pens and I mounted that onto red card and then I added some paper roses. Et voila!

Hope you like it?

Mum's Birthday

Hello again
Here's the upload I promised.

This is a card I made for a friend at work, Jane. It was her mother's birthday and she wanted an 8" by 8" card so I had quite a bit of space to fill.

The background paper is from a bumper pack from Craftword Cards and so was the greeting attachment. The ribbons were from my stash (god knows where I got them as I now have three rather large bags full of ribbons) and I cannot for the life of me, remember where the image was from either (sorry). I coloured the image with my promarkers and cut the letters out by hand before running them through a Cuttlebug folder on my BigShot. I then mounted the image and added some card candi.

Fingers Crossed

Hi girls and fellow crafters
Well, it's been a long time since I last updated my blog and although my health has been pretty naff of late, I have still managed to make the odd card so watch this space as I upload them over the next few days.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has been in touch by text, email, blog and by my Facebook page, to wish me better and to let you know that I am indeed, feeling much better than I have done in such a long time... so fingers crossed, all is okay now and I can move on with my life.So, I am back and fighting fit.

Just one more thing before I sign off, thank you for staying with me, and for your wonderful, kind and caring patience. It is appreciated more than you will ever know.
