Just a couple more...

I've been a bit unwell the past couple of days seems a 'bug' is doing the rounds and it 'got ' me - lol!  Beginning to feel better now so hopefully will get some crafting done over the weekend before beginning the dreaded decorating.  Need to get some baby girl cards made (already born) and a new grandson is expected to make his appearance any day now... oops... also need a card for one of my best friend's birthday at the end of the month, apart from that I'm making the wedding invites etc for another best friend's daughter so it would be much appreciated if the sneezing, coughing and headache could all disappear very quickly!  I've been trawling thro' the pics on my PC and found a few more you might like to see....

First is an anniversary card for my husband who's a great fan of 'Shaun the Sheep', a blue base card with chalked clouds, hills made from torn paper and tiny punched flowers, punched and folded card circles covered in flowersoft make the sheep and I couldn't resist adding 'googly' eyes to the black one!

A  'K' card for a friend's twin grandsons using images from a Joanna Sheen CD, a simple pearlescent base card with a sparkly ribbon and hand tied bow to finish this design as I didn't want to detract from the beautiful baby images.

Okay, I know we've just had Christmas but....a 'Glitter Girls' Bookatrix card never goes far wrong, the wreath is hand stamped using the tiny 'Rubber Stamp Tapestry' Poinsettia set and I added a matching corner arrangement to the sentiment.  For my personal message I added a little gift card (instead of a 'bookmark') using the smallest 'page' on the board .  Peel off borders, hand tied ribbon bow and 'Stickles' glitter glue added the finishing touches.

Now for something completely different!  I can't remember the occasion this was made for - will blame a senior moment!  Anyhow as you can see (stating the obvious) it's a wheelbarrow filled with purchased paper flowers and believe it or not the wheel actually turned!!!  Actually.... I have a feeling it might have been a sample for my friend's shop - the counter looks familiar (should do I was in there most days - lol!)  I must still have the template in my crafty stash - somewhere....
Take care and have fun... see you again soon (I hope)
