bookatrix card made for a freinds daughter using images from cuddlybuddly. its a shame really because it really is a cute card and i dont think that the photo has done the colour any justice as it looks a little washed out in the photo

my daughter decided that she didnt want to go trick or treating as a cat so we tried a few other things and this is what she has set her heart on now. it is quite easy and quick to do which is a bonus.
shame though my sons wont have his done.not even sure if he will even get dressed into his costume yet

my cousin has just had a baby girl and i wanted to make her something a little different than the usual baby card.i wanted something that she would hopefully keep. i designed this from an idea that i had seen in one of my card magazines and modified it to how i wanted it

i also made he a nappy cake photos of which a cannot find at the moment i definatly took some just not sure where i have uploaded them to. when i find them i will add them

sorry but again the pictures are not very good it was a bit difficult to hold and take the photo at tthe same time

This is for my friends sister, very girlie with a bit of bling and a nice shrink plastic dangler which matches the main image, the stamp is by penny black inc

This was for grandpa's birthday from the kids, this was my first time using twisted pyramage, but as it was die cut, it was very easy and quick to make, which was a good job considering it was made the night before his birthday because i had misplaced the card i had originally made.
