Sunny get well card

Hi there, how is everyone? We are still having warm sunny days here in the U.K but today is much cooler, however as its a bank holiday weekend and the queens jubilee the chances of rain are pretty high! So I thought about making a bright get well card to bring back some sunshine!

I used a Kraft card blank and most of the card embellishments and papers was made on my imagine machine using the best friends cart. After adhering down the flower pattern paper I cut out the sunshine and filled in some clouds with cloud paper, and i then cut out the girl and cat. I then added a scalloped border along the edge of my card and finished with a stamped get well sentiment from hero arts. I think this card is good for all ages and I'm sure it will cheer them up.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and celebrates the queens jubilee, let's hope it's a nice warm weekend!

Thank you for stopping by and any questions you may have feel free to ask me,

Purple monster happy birthday card

Hi, how is everyone? I have been playing around on my cameo and I just love these little hero arts monsters! They are really sweet, when I first got them I thought they are perfect for boys cards but you can make them for girls too and I think any age will love them.

To make my monster card I cut out a doily design along with the monster and I also cut some flowers that I would fold up. I then added some Cosmo cricket papers and echo park papers along with some pretty tape. I then added my stamped sentiment and adhered everything down onto my card. I think this one may need to be sent in a 3D envelope!

Have fun wherever you are and if anyone is making monster cards I would love to see what you make.

Well it looks like its going to be another hot day here in the U.K :)

Happy birthday bird card

Hello again, do you ever have the same problem as me~you make so many cards then when you need a certain card it's gone never to be found again (oh that's right I already gave it away) well I made this happy birthday card just for that reason, it's simple and quick to make so if I ever 'forget' where that birthday card went then I can pull this one out and everyone is happy! Unless they don't like pink or birds....

OK so I said it was quick to make as I already had everything ready to go but even if you don't have all your supplies at hand it doesn't take too long. And we all have bits and bobs that are hiding somewhere waiting to be used up :)
To make the background I ran a piece of white cardstock through the cuttlebug and used the Swiss dots embossing folder.The brown edge border is die cut from the accent essentials cartridge. The bird was cut out from my imagine more cartridge but you can use any embellishment you want or have close by. I then added pink ribbon and a stamped sentiment along the bottom of the card which was then finished off with a big button.

Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. However if you wanted to add more or less go ahead this is just a quick card for when you have 'forgot' where that card was....

Thanks for looking,

Get well card

Hi, it seems that I have a few friends who are not feeling well at the moment so some get well cards were made to cheer them up. I love making get well cards as I think most of us seem to catch the odd bug and sometimes we can feel a bit down so its nice to know that someone is thinking of you.

 Right lets get onto the card and how I made it; I have used my cameo to cut the skull then I cut some eyes and a smile. The flower at the top of the head is from a punch with a brad put through the centre. I then cut out a doily design again on the cameo and inked the edges. After stamping the get well sentiment onto a tab I then adhered all the pieces onto the front of the card. I added pink ribbon and some tape along the bottom.

I don't know why but I really like how the skull turned out so I have made a few more cards featuring the skull.

If anyone is feeling ill or going through a tough time right now I hope you feel better soon. Get well soon can mean a number of different things depending on the individual person. I just think a nice card will let them know you are thinking of them :)

Thank you for stopping by,

Hippo Happy Birthday Card

 Hi there! Believe it or not but here in England we have had some scorching sunshine so what better way to celebrate than make a sunshine card. I love the sun so I printed out the sun topper from my imagine machine I think it looks so sweet, the hippo and polka dot border is also from the imagine and the cartridge I used is imagine more. As I love cosmo cricket I had to use some papers from the girl friday collection. The flowers are rolled paper flowers and I cut these out with my cameo.
 Here is a close up of the rolled flowers.
I hope your having a lovely day and the sun is shining where you are, thank you for stopping by,
