Another Seagull Get Well Soon Card ...

... needed by a friend ... so used a familiar theme, but with a twist. Front and back shown here, the insert was the same as previously.

Thank You Card ...

... for a friend who has helped me out recently. They breed chickens and ducks, so thought that the 'Cluck' the chicken on Sharon Duncan's Farmyard Friends CD would be something a bit different.

The card is A5 printed on both sides with different background papers. On the front is a tea bag design and a decoupage of two hens with 'thanks' on the banner between them.

Another Get Well Soon Card ...

... made from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD.

Again it is a 5" square card with
a buckle and glitzy ribbon. I have shown views of the front, inside and back of the card.

Baby's shoe ...

... I made today from a template given to my by Andy which is on his "CD for a friend". The paper is also on the CD, and the buckle I embossed with silver embossing powder. It also has a foam sole.

Get well soon card ...

... for a friends father who is in hospital awaiting a heart operation.

This is a 5" square card. I printed two different backing sheets from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD, and they are the ones that complement the seagull and seascape topper on either sides of a piece of white card. The topper was printed onto gloss photo paper. The insert was also from the same set, as was the image on the back. I would have liked a wider ribbon for the buckle, but it was the only blue ribbon I had.

A simple thank you card ...

... made for a friend. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder for the 'thank you's', and the Glitter Girls Majestic board for the background. The embellishments were a two-tone paper rose with pearls and a bow.

Two cards for today ...

... one is for a friend who has just had a few days tests at Addenbrooks, and is now heading back home. It is a gatefold card with flower soft bouquet. The backing paper is from Sharon Duncan's Farmyard Animals CD.

The other card is for wedding rejection - made on the Glitter Girls Majestic board. I used tapestry paper in three different colours, embellished with three diamante's and a pink bow.

Tux Card

I was asked to make this by a friend last night. I got the instructions from a CD by Coppernob that gives excellent directions. This card is from two pieces of A5 dark blue linen card, but it ends up as A6. The bow tie is made up of two punched out hearts. The frill is a border punch (sorry, it isn't very clear in this picture!). Embellished with a small white rose in the button hole and a button at the bottom - it is held together by a Velcro dot.

Scrap Magic Cards

These were my first attempts at making Scrap Magic cards. The rose one was the first,
and all things considered I am very pleased with it.

The ship card is made using an image from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion 3 CD set - and I find this quite a popular image to use for men.
