A friends birthday card.

Well what a stunning day it has been today, it's so nice to have some sunny days, although I have heard a few people complain about the heat!
Anyway here is a card that I made for my friend Jo for her birthday last week. It is a book card and took a little while to make but I feel the end result was worth the time I spent on it.

The image is from C.C Designs and she has been coloured with Pro markers. The papers I used are from Graphic 45 and are from the collection called "A ladies diary" These are truly beautiful papers.
Here is a view from the side, The card is kept closed with a bow tied on the side.
And here is the inside of the card. It is very hard to photograph this card as the light is so bright it makes the inside of the card appear dark in the photo. But below is a closer shot which gives you a better idea of how the inside looks.
I am very pleased to say that my friend loved it which is a relief! I hope you like it too.
Enjoy this lovely weather, be back soon with another card.

More My Favourite Things

Well Good Morning and Happy weekend, I have had such a busy week with lots of running around being taxi service for my younger son, he is getting ready to leave primary school and starts senior school in October. Can't believe I will have no more school runs!
Anyway onto the card. I made this card using stamps and dies from MFT. I cut the pallet out of wood venre which looks really effective. and then once I added to paint die cuts I coloured them and then added Glossy accents over the top.
The Little image has been coloured with Pro markers and her appron has been paper pieced with the same designer paper that was used for the card.
Here is a close up, hope you like it. Have a great weekend whatever you might be doing.

Keeping it simple

Well Hello!! I don't know about you but I am soooo fed up of this rain! it has been raining here all day. So the only thing to do after the house had been cleaned was to craft.
I don't know about you, but my memory is terrible (just ask my mum) lol. So I always like to have some belated birthday cards to hand. I seem to send more of these than birthday cards that are on time!!
As the title of this post says I was keeping the card nice and simple. The stamp I used is from C.C Designs, I don't know what she is called as I purchased her from Michelle at the Card Grotto when she was having a clear out of her stamps and listing them on ebay.
The papers are from My minds eye The Lime twist collection and they are called "Happy go lucky"
The images are all coloured with Pro markers. I purchased the little greeting stamp from The craft room.
A little close up of each card, all slighty different from the others.

Wedding Bells

Hi, hope you are all having a good afternoon. Today I have made two cards, one birthday card and one wedding card. I thought I would share the Wedding card first and then the birthday card tomorrow, as it is for a friends birthday which is tomorrow and I know she reads my blog!
For this wedding card I used a Fizzy Moon stamp which is called "Wedding Bells". I love this stamp and it's great for colouring with Pro Markers.
I cut the tag and doily with a die. The Ribbon is Vintage seam binding from The craft room. The flowers and heart pins are also from the Craft room. The backing paper is by Prima and is from the Fairy belle collection.
Here are a couple of close up shots. I hope you like this card. Have a lovely afternoon. I will be back tomorrow with my friends birthday card. Thanks for stopping by. Maria x
