Darcy's Card

Hi all, hope you're are having a good weekend, its been busy here as usual, yesterday I was at a Girls Brigade training day in Glasgow, we had a craft session giving us ideas to use with the Explorers (P1 - P3's) well if you had seen the card I made you would have thought it was made by a 3 year old, honestly the kids could have made a much better job than me lol. This morning was a very special day for me and Andrew as he was admitted as a member in the Church and confessed his faith, I was such a proud Mum and had a wee tear in my eye. It doesn't seem like 17 years almost to the day that he was baptised there, where has the years gone?

Well onto my card, this was made for my neice Darcy who was 13 last Thursday, glad to say she loved it, and said to her Uncle Robert it was amazing and I was so talented (she's such a drama queen ) if she had seen my card yesterday she certainly wouldn't be saying that lol.

card blank 8x8 from craftwork cards, mo manning pre-coloured topper edged with dstressed ink, fizzy moon  backing papers, LOTV sentiment and other embellishments from stash.

Gharry Styles Card

Good evening all, hope you all enjoyed some sunshine today, it turned out a lovely evening here and hubby and son are off out golfing, so I've had a quiet evening here.

Well onto to my card for this week, Andrew asked me to make this for his friend Gary, who is a Harry Styles from One Direction look a like, the poor boy takes such a ribbing from all his mates.
I used Craftartist to create the topper with a googled image of Harry Styles, the backing papers and embellishments were from my stash. I'm glad to say the card went down well with all his friend and think Gary was quite happy about it too. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog x

Good morning all, what another gorgeous day today, hoping to have a BBQ later with my sister and her kids, so hope it lasts all day. Well its been a very busy this week, I've been out every night at the kids summer club in the Church, so tiring but also very enjoyable too, theres not been so many kids here this year, we've had a few teenagers who did the drama to the kids brillantly and the fellowship from the leaders has been great.

Well back to my card, I was asked to make this card for a friend, and again the LOTV toppers have come out again.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog x

40th Birthday Card

Another commissioned card, I'm getting a few orders now from work colleagues which is always good, don't think I would like to to have too many big orders but a few now and again is great.

This is another LOTV topper, I do love these images they really make it so much easier to get a good finish as my stamping and colouring aren't up to much, the backing papers are Forever Friends springtime and sentiment and embellishimets are from stash.
