20th Wedding Anniversary

Evening to you all! hope you had a lovely weekend with your family and friends! We had my mum over to help with the kids and on Sunday we went for a trip to the lake. It was lovely.

The rain has settled over Manchester therefore I had some time to do my sisters 20th Wedding Anniversary card. There is 18 years gap between me and my sister (I am the younger one obviously :)). Last year she had a long waited baby boy, Adam and I can’t believe she has been married for 20 years! What a result. I wish them all the best for another 20 years 🙂

I have used the following sketch for my card

Birthday Girl Card

Woo hoo it’s me again. I have been busy again tonight! My eyes are still sore (caught an infection) but new glasses seem to make a difference.

I went through few blogs and looked at challenges earlier on today. There are some really amazing crafters out there!!! Every time I look at someones blog, i want to sit down and makes something myself. That’s how I created my next card.

It is a proper girly card, I have used some fabulous designer paper with shiny flowers on it, black and pink baking paper, die cut centre piece where I have mantled digi stamp by Gillian Flint. I have painted image with brush markers and promarkers and finished it off with distress crackle paint by Tim Holtz. Also added some mulberry flowers, tag and birthday girl sentiment. Butterfly was black but painted it with sparkle t-shirt glue paint 😉 oh, I have almost forgotten about pink ribbon and liquid pearls. Hope you like it xxx

Happy Birthday Card For A Boy

Good evening to you all! Is it just me or is it bloody hot?! Finally we have a proper summer in a beautiful UK land. Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I am definitely not looking forward to sitting 8 hours in the office tomorrow 😦

Anyways, onto my card. This one has been made to order. It’s a birthday card for a 3 year old boy. I have used cute teddy bear digi stamp which I have painted with promarkers, blue ribbons, cardboard sign for extra layer. On top of that I have added painted with ink pens ‘happy birthday’ sign, backing papers from my stash and liquid pearls.
