And Another Tri-Shutter Card....

AND yet another Tri-Shutter card LOL..... This was my prize winning one - is this where I say that there weren't that many entries LOL - But I was still very pleased to get the prize with this card. :)

I made this for a good friend's birthday. I have used Crystal Effects on this card also. :) Crystal Effects, my new 'friend' LOL

I have a wedding card to make and I can't decide whether to make one of these cards (Yes, another one!) or to case a beautiful card I spotted a couple of weeks ago.... decisions decisions, decisions.... Check back in a while and see what I decided LOL

Boy's Birthday Tilt Card....

Hi all - here is a card that i made with one of my sons for a their friend's birthday. We have made a 'tilt' card witht he truck 'rocketing' or 'rocking' along the road. LOL

The piece of blue ribbon was just what we needed for the 'road' and it was the piece of ribbon tied around my prize from convention. Just what we needed... :)

Hi all - I've just realised that I have done it again LOL - I forgot to post my workshop cards... *Groan* -Seriously, if my head wasn't screwed on......

Anyway our first card we made was a 'Diorama' card (tutorial
here) - I have had one on display from my son's birthday and a couple of girls have wanted me to show them how easy it is to make them.... and they are easy. I make mine slightly wider than the tutorial. so the hole is bigger and one has to come in from top, and bottom.

As you can see we have used the cute little train set and matching wheel out of the new mini catalogue. Plus the trees out of the 'ol favourite, Loads of Love. The sentiment is from the set, On your Birthday.

The next card we made is simple enough and I just wanted to use this new set as I love clocks. I am really struggling to make something with it though and really don't know when and where to use it. :{

I was pleased with this card..... The colours used are from the you-beaut SU colour wheel. That thing is just fantastic!!!
And lastly we made this cute little bag. It is off the KaiserCraft website. Template and instructions for it can be found here.
If you are wanting any details of any or all of the above then please don't hesitate to contact me :)

Simple, But Sweet.....

Hi all - this is the card that I made for my mum's birthday. I just wanted something that was very simple and sweet and I was pleased with how it turned out. :)

Ps: Can't see it very clearly, but this was my first card that I found the joys of "Crystal Effects" LOL - I have had a bottle here for months and not really sure what to do with it. I have played on scraps but they never looked any good but I have used it to make 'brads' in the corner and to 'lift' some areas. And now I LOVE it!!!

Another Tri-Shutter....

Hi all - This would have to be my 'All-time Favourite' card. (for now anyway LOL) I was sooo very, very pleased with how this card turned out. I am adoring these Tri-Shutter cards so much that I want to make them for everyone!!!! LOL. I did make this for a friend's birthday and it was one of those cards that I just struggled to give away LOL.

I have made yet another one of these style of cards and entered it into a local craft/flower show last weekend and I got first prize for it so I am very, very happy!!!!!!! :) Will show it on a later posting.....

More Mystery Slider Cards...........

Hi all - a friend (hi Mary) wanted to have a go at making a 'Magic Slider' card so came over one day a few weeks ago to make one. They are very time consuming to make as we found out LOL 'cause even with me having made one before and having a fair idea of what to do, it still took us from approx. 10.30am till 2pm to make the cards.

This is the card that I made - which I did make for someone, but I still haven't finished the present so it is still here LOL.....

And this is the one Mary did - It was beautiful!!!

Wedding Cards...

Hi all - a couple of months ago (Yeah, yeah! I know...) a friend asked if I could make up some wedding cards ideas for her and these are what I came up with.... They are a combination of different ideas I have seen and wanted to try....

She liked them both so took both as she had a wedding later in the year as well. Can't get more thanks than that can one.... :)

Anyone who went to Convention this year will recognise this card LOL - cased as close as I could get it to the one made by Shannon West, which was inspired by 'Twilight'. I made this one for my niece, for her wedding, as she is a huge Twilight fan.
And this was my gift to her - black towels with 'Together' on one and 'Forever' on the other and also a matching hand towel.

Lucky Me!...........

Hi all - Just wanted to show you all some beautiful cards and a gift that I was so lucky to receive. I have met this wonderful person through being a SU demonstrator and even though we have only communicated through email, I now think of her as a really close friend. My mum, in her much younger days had a very special pen-friend for many, many years, and I think of us now-a-days with emails as having Internet pen-friends. So Tanya, I consider you my very special 'pen-friend' :) and thank you from the bottom of my heart for these beautiful cards and gift.

I received this one some time ago but am now only getting them on now to show everyone. Isn't it just beautiful and the candle is so divine!! How does someone light that!!!!

And not to long ago she sent me this card... Both cards are really pretty but this one in real life is sooooo pretty. It is so soft and sparkly and I get lots and lots of comments about it.
So again Tanya, Thank you so much - I loved them all! :)
