New Home

Good Morning all!
It's almost the weekend, do you have plans?
There are a few things going on around here, so not sure quite 
how things will pan out!
Here's the card I have to share with you today!

A friend has just moved in to a new home.
He's back to the single life, so I thought this fun image was apt!
It's from a Kanban diecut topper & sentiment set, called 
So Macho- Funny Business.
it's been around in my stash for a while, just waiting for the right moment!
In fact everything on this card has been in my stash for quite a while!
I used an A6 silver grey card base & embossed with a chevron folder.
The dotty tape is from papermania,
I used silver peel off's for the sentiment to tie in with the silver foiling
around the image. I also added a little silver key charm.
I kept this card flat so it could easily be posted.
That's about it really. 
I know a lot of people find making cards for men quite daunting
 but I find if you keep things fairly simple & add a smile, it seems to do the trick. 
Thanks so much for popping intoday!
Have a great weekend!

Breakfast At Tiffany's

Good morning all!
I have another card to share today!

As you can see, it's another of the samples I made for the launch 
of the new La Pashe CD Rom........
The Wrinklies At The Movies 

This one is an easel card. 
I used black card stock for the base & plain red paper to matt & layer.
The border was punched with an EK Success punch.
The design paper is from the CD
I used the sentiment as the stop for the easel section.
Added some ribbon & lace from my stash & a few die cut words.
You can just about see the little pocket/napkin with tiny cutlery charms.
I just couldn't resist, I've had these in my stash forever!
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!

Here's my card

I used this image recently, but I love her so much I just had to use her again.
Isn't she just perfect for a "Back To School" card?
I decided to colour her up using pencils this time.
I used a 6"x6" white base for this card.
The papers are from Lidl & the twine is from American Crafts.
The little buttons are die cut using Tattered Lace dies.
The layout is this weeks sketch from

I printed the little sentiment out using a font called

You can just about see that the image has been mounted on some foam tape
to give the card a little dimension!

My Fair Lady

Good morning all!
It's a beautiful start to Sunday here, the sun is shining & it looks 
like it's going to stay that way!
Here's todays little card!

It's another sneek peak at the samples I made using the
Wrinklies At The Movies CD rom
.My card is 8"x8"
I added a matt of plain black paper under the design  paper.
I then added some lace, black satin ribbon & sheer white ribbon.
I die cut a scalloped circle from plain black paper using a spellbinders die 
then topped that with a little doily. 
The decoupaged image was matted on to the black paper too!
I placed the image at a jaunty angle & added the sentiment above, using varying
depths of foam pads. The final additions were a feather, a triple bow & a little
black heart embellishment. The ribbon, feather & heart were all from
 Lelli-Bot Crafts
