Diamond Wedding Anniversary

My Auntie and Uncle have been married for such a long time and next week celebrate their Diamond Wedding Anniversary.

I am in the middle of a major house renovation and I made this card in amongst all the mess.  This will be the last card I make for a while now as I have to pack all my craft stuff away.

I love making white on white cards they look so classy.

I used a Crafters Companion embossing folder and some Spellbinders Dies to create the effect.

The stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Bye for now

Mothers Day Card for my Mum In Law

My Mum in Law loves anything vintage so I applied vintage photo ink by Tim Holtz  to age the paper and get that vintage shabby chic look.

I wasn't sure I liked the card while I was making it but by the time I finished adding the embellishments I loved it.  My Hubby confirmed that his Mum would love it too.

This may well be the last crafty project for a while as the builders are arriving tomorrow and my home will be a building site for a few months while it is transformed into my dream home.  I will having a new craft room too.  Very exciting and messy times ahead.

This card was entered  into  the following challenges. - Always Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Mothers Day Feb Card Challenge

Happy Crafting

Card Swap

I  belong to a card swap group on Facebook and this month we had to make a sympathy card.  I chose to make this one in these colors as so many people these day ask for people to wear bright colors to their funeral.  I though the card  turned out very well.

The stamp is from Stampin Up! and the papers are from my stash.  Sorry not sure who makes them as  I have lost the cover.

Easter Card for Mum and Dad

When I  received  this Little Claire stamp  of the month I knew it would make a really pretty Easter card. The bunting is a stamp and die set form Spellbinders.  I love it - it is so cute.

I colored  in the stamp with water color pencils. I don't use water though, I blend with paper stumps and bay oil.  It works a treat.  The papers are from Country Companions paper pack.
