Happy Birthday to Whoo!

Hi all - I am so proud of this card! I just love it! I made it about a week ago for a friend who really LOVES owls and have planned to make her a punched owl card ever since we had that arvo playing with the punches...... But then..... I forgot her birthday!!!!!!! Can you believe it!!! I was horrified!!!!!! Her birthday was the day after my DH's in NOVEMBER!!.... So I hope she liked it and forgives me... LOL (I still haven't made my DH a card....)

I have made another one of these cards - in different colours and designs - but I don't think it would have arrived yet so will have to wait to put it on here.

I got the idea for this from a bought card that another friend received, and thought that I liked the idea so went home and had a play with sizings and folds until I was happy with the base.

And just for you Jacqui :) I remembered to write down my measurements:

Start with a sheet 10" x 6" then score and fold along the 10" side at 2", 3", 5", & 7" - almost like making a step card, only sideways.

You could make it 8" long and score at 2", 3", 5" & 6" but that leaves the last panel only 2" long instead of 3" and I preferred the wider panel for putting more on.

Sympathy cards...

Hi all - these are two sympathy cards I made about a month or so ago. I wanted something subdued and pretty. This flower is just so beautiful to colour.

Christmas Cards...

Hi all - These are the cards I made for my 'girls'. I made 23 in total and BOY was I SICK of tying ribbons!!! LOL - They will enjoy knowing that! As they complain every time I put ribbon on one of the workshop cards (which is often! LOL)

I got the inspiration for this wonderful idea from
here. From the lovely and talented Debbie P. Thank you Debbie, for your wonderful inspiration. Debbie made hers quite a while ago and I have had the link saved ever since knowing that that was the card I was going to make.

I've really quite surprised myself this year (and with working...) as I am more organised at this stage of Christmas than I have been for many Christmases. It is such a good feeling LOL. Hope it stays this way (for a little while at least...)

Very Belated Birthday Crad...

Hi all - this is the card that I made for my BIL - It was a very belated birthday card. We went away for a family weekend together between my DH and BIL's birthday and it was decided that we would celebrate their birthdays while there. And I don't know what I was thinking.... 'cause it didn't even cross my mind to take a card (let alone his pressy) with us!!!!! then it was another week or two before we saw them again after that to give it to him. * groan* LOL - good thing our family is so understanding with me....... :)

Not all that bad I suppose considering I haven't yet made a card for my own wonderful DH... And his birthday was first!!! .....

My Very First Chrissy Card...

Hi all - here is the very first Chrissy card that I have received this year. It was made by a good friend who comes to my workshops each month. It always gives me such pride and joy when I see their creations. And I think she has done a wonderful job. (Same friend who made the super cute invites in the previous post)
