Lattace card

I have been looking at some of these cards on a forum and really like them so had a "bash" myself.
I was going to leave it all white but decided to add a bit of blue chalk. The card was a 3 fold apperture card I've had for a long time from when I did cross-stitch cards, so I just cut the oval out on the "flap" bit that folds in. This saved me making a backing card.  The flowers are a mixture of punched and crealies. Hope you like it.

Teachers Leaving card

I was asked to make a card for a teacher who is leaving. Simple I thought......until I was asked to have2 grannies baking on it.  Well I serched the internet and found a granny holding a baking tray with cakes on so bought the image, only it was coloured . Well here is the product.
I used my pro-markers to change the colour of the pinny. The background I stamped buns all over randomly then stamped them onto card and coloured them in but used a red glaze for the cherries and glitter for the icing.  The person was well impressed with the result.

Santa's Sunday

Hello there. I've not been posting because I can't comment on other friends cards.But I can see them so hopefully you can all see mine.  Your cards are fantastic and have given me plenty of inspiration which I thank you all for very much.  I have been on the net a lot of late because my friend over in America has a very poorly grand-daughter. Thank goodness for facebook though as her mum is one of my "friends" and been posting up dates.  Today she is having a major operation so I hope you will all join me in wishing her a full recovery. So now to this weeks card, I watched Sue on a Spell binders programme yesterday morning and she did a demo of this so I had a go and this is the result.  I feel there is something missing like a greeting  but will have another look later.

Thankyou for looking, please if you can post a comment.
Hugs Vanessa xx
