Leaving us to have a baby

One of the girls in work is leaving us to have her baby and as usual I have left it to the last minute to get a card done, this is an 8x8 card to allow everyone to sign it. I've cut out the shapes on the Cricut, the letters on the Cuttlebug and the flourishes are using the bazzill templates. I have stressed quite a lot about this card but hopefully it will be ok, the flowers have been coloured with promarkers as they were white to begin with.

I have been invited to join some other great card makers for the new challenge blog
CD SUNDAY which will open it's doors for business on Sunday 18th April.

We are hoping that you will be coming over to join in and use some of those cd's that are not only favourites but those that are sitting hardly used at the back of the cupboard or shelf. Work is already going on behind the scenes and I think you will like what the team have been doing for the first weeks challenge. There won't be too many rules and as long as you use something from a cd you can join in, even if it's only a piece of backing paper so that gives you lots of scope.

See you there on Sunday!

Rainbow Lady's Challenge- Red, Black and Gold with a bit of Oriental

Cynthia over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog has set us the task of using red, gold and black with a bit of oriental. Couldn't decide what to do then remembered this stamp that I have had for a long time and vary rarely used. I stamped with Versamark and embossed with black powder, I then picked out some elements with gold mica powder, it doesn't look very bright here but it is in reality.

I used the same red card to cut the border and used the happiness chop which was on a sheet from Kanban, finally I stuck the coins on using Zig two way glue which I find amazing if it is used correctly.

Bah! Humbug Challenge no13 - Tags and labels

The ladies over on the Bah! Humbug! challenge blog are really making me work again, I always feel that tags look good when other people use them but not when I do so I can't say I'm over the moon with this card but I have had a go.

The little angel is a Sarah Kay stamp that I bought at a sale price last week from here, the service has been super quick and reasonable postage too.

You may notice that the backing papers have been seen before well I am determined that the pad I bought will be used so I will be doing quite a few pink and purple cards this year.
