Thinking Of You

Good morning all,
Today's card is a little sympathy card.
Such a difficult occasion to make a card for but important to do!

I've used an A6 Landscape Linen embossed CS base, with a matt of blue.
I simply embossed the panel on which I had printed
the sentiment. The font I have used is Sweetly Broken.
I added 3 little punched butterflies.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Crib

Good Morning all!
Todays little card was made using the brand new La Pashe 
Watercolour Wishes range which was on Create & Craft TV the other week.

It's not available on the La Pashe website until the end of this week.

I made an A5 tentfold card from an A3 sheet of cardstock then added the
background image directly onto the card front. 
I cut out & added the decoupage then used some of the extra bits from the 
elements sheet to decoupage the baby vest & toys on the shelf too!
I added a couple of layers of lace & some ribbon at the side.
I reckon this design would be perfect for  boy or a girl!

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated Happy Birthday John

Good moring all!
I hope you had a good weekend!
The card I have to share with you today is a commisioned card.

This was for a friends husband's 60th Birthday.
I did intend posting it on his birthday but for some reason, when I 
went off on holiday the draft just disappeared! 
I used the Flippin' Men DIY Decoupage sheet from La Pashe.
It's a brilliant sheet for Joiners, Handymen & DIYers!
I used Kraft card for the A5 easel card base, matted the background 
image & poem onto some plain brown paper.
The sentiment was created on my PC then cut out with a die.
The stop is made using a piece of kraft card which was given a decorative edge 
using a Spellbinders Border Die & wrapped with some button twine. 
This was then popped up on some foam tape.
Some card candy & my treasured tool charms were added to embellish.

Here's a little side view just to show the fold!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
