Black & White Christmas Card

This is quite a modern card for me but I just like the elegance of the black & white. Yesterday I went to a demo and this was one of the ideas that I saw but I have changed it slightly. I will be making several of these cards for my relations as if only takes a few minutes to make one of these cards.

Thanks for looking

Engagement Card


Good Evening, a work colleague of mine has just returned from Barbados and whilst on holiday her boyfriend proposed, so I thought this Magnolia image would be perfect for their engagement card. The papers are also by Magnolia and are just fabulous.
Enjoy the weekend

Vintage Style Christmas Card

Good evening, I am making good progress with my family Christmas cards. This card is for Poppy to give to my Mum as she likes vintage style. Pleased with how this card has turned out. The image is one I bought from Norway and I have sprayed glimmer mist which gives the showing effect.

Henry Mouse

Good Afternoon, I have made this card for my brother in law using a free digi download from Whiff of Joy called Spiderman Henry. I love this image as it is great for all men of any age.

The designer papers are by Magnolia and are just perfect to give my card the "USA" look.
