Pig Out

Hi Everyone, I made a card for a Nephew in Law, BUT, I lost the card I made, (this one) and had to find one I had already done to get it into the post, 2 days later I moved a magazine and there it was - grrrr! LOL, at least the one he got I liked anyway and it was suitable. However there is always another Nephew in Law or male in the family to send a card, and this will go to - Yep! another nephew (in law) LOL

Chicken Groan!

Hi Everyone a quick post today to enter the Limited Runs FB progressive challenge. We were given this fabby chicken, I was looking through the web for chicken quotes and saw a cartoon, that I have cased. It's a one layer card. I could have done more with the background and the layering, but you know what? it worked as it was so I went with it.

Christening Card

Hi Everyone, my card today is a Christening card for "our baby Dorothy", her mum likes colours on her, so I added them to her card. I thought it apt to add it today as it is her Christening Day, we won't be able to attend unfortunately, but I hope this makes up a little for that fact.

Birthday card

Hi Everyone, firstly I have to apologise if I haven't caught up with you yet, I am trying (some people say very trying LOL) BUT you Ladies are being so very creative and time takes over before I can complete my visits, hopefully it won't take too long for me to catch up with you.

My card today started with the sketch at the Outlawz, it was great inspiration for a card I had to do for hubby's cousin. Now it's made 7 days before I need it, whoopppeee LOL.

I did this from a digital kit, I find when I use a kit, that all I have to do is pick which elements go with which paper I choose and it all matches beautifully, and so many choices too.

kit "Another year has gone" - Valentina at Digital Scrapbooking Studio
designed in PS
all layered onto white card (for a change)
sentiment 3D'd
sentiment, oval and border, print and cut on the Cameo
oval border - Lori Whitlock "Kraft borders"
oval is actually a circle border I "squashed" to become an oval, 
in PS, I "clipped" a paper to the shape to match everything else.
a little yellow sparkle pen on the flower centres and candle flames

 the insert is blurred - sorry, but it gives you an idea of what I did.

this is the sketch for this week
