Mums birthday card

I was away at the weekend in Manchester for the rugby. had a great time and met some lovely people who we will hopefully meet up with again next year.  It was my mums birthday while I was away and didn't want to post her card on here until she had seen it. Can't believe she is 82 now.

Here favourite colour is yellow so I tend to use that for any cards I make for her.
I've used a pearl silver card for the base which looks more like a grey, and gone round the edge with cosmic shimmer. The yellow paper is from a Papermania pad and the dotty paper is some I printed off. The lace was from my trip down to Leeds market and the flowers from country baskets.  The butterfly is a Marrianne die leaves are memory box and the white frame is 4 corner die from spellbinders.

Thanks for looking.

Re colouring!

Looking through my many reams of papers I founf a sheet of digi images. I had started colouring this one but it was before I understood about shading and was a bit bland.  Well I re coloured her and this time she looks more like a little girl I am well pleased with the outcome and hope you are too.

I used the layout on a previous card and got on well with it so used it again for this card and used up some scraps of paper and card.  I love doing this as I feel I get a good card that hasn't cost much too make, and keeps my scrap boxes low.

Sunday Santa

This weeks theme is Transport.....well I don't have a stamp or digi image that I thought sutable, so I had a look through my decoupage papers and hey presto I found this one.
 It reminded me of the film Chitty Chitty bang bang.

Orange roses

I saw a card similar to this on the marianne design site, so had a look at what I had to make something similar.  I was well pleased with the card so I made a second card with the left overs.  I used up some green card for the leaves and ended up punching or using dies with the rest of the scraps so that I now have a container of leaves at the ready.

Christmas birthday

Last Sunday challenge was a Christmas birthday so I used a fairy posting a card.
Sorry I am late in posting this to my blog but I have been busy in the garden and trying to catch up with cards for the school fete and birthdays for next week.
