Cards,Cards and More Cards

Thursday, 6 September 2012

Morning Morning
I still haven't found out about my camera...hopefully today :o(  I am a bit anxious about it. I'm expecting bad news but I just want to know now! Grrr

Anyway I have a few cards to show today. I have made these in preparation for a card making class I'm running.

I may have accidentally purchased a few Little Claire's images at a recent stamp show (oops) so I figured I'd better get some use out of them! This card uses a really gorgeous image, I just love anything stitched or patchwork effect and this stamp is now therefore one of my favourites.


I'm going to enter this card in Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge  who's challenge is 'Sewing' and Colour Throwdown which is to use Memon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and garden green (I've gone for more of a lime green...hope that's ok!)

Onto another Little Claires image - Man Squares this time. Brilliant for man cards obviously.
I'm going to enter this one into Dude Time Doodles which is 'two shades of blue' and Creative Craft Challenges2 which is 'all about the boys'

This one uses a really beautiful bird image by Stampin Up which has long retired but I came across it the other day and wondered why I don't use it very much because it really is lovely.
I'm going to enter this one into The Perfect Sentiments Challenge which is to include a sentiment on the front of the card and a creature and the Deep Ocean Challenge which is 'things with wings'

This one uses the SU Just Believe stamp set which I would call an old favourite. I just punched a few mini flowers to stick on the leaves which gives this stamp a bit of a makeover.


I'm going to enter this one in My Mums Craft Shop challenge which is anything goes, Ribbon Carousel which is 'beautiful bows' and Craft Your Passion which is flowers.

And finally onto the little notelet that I usually try to make CAS style:



I'm going to enter this one in Flutterby Wednesdays challenge which is to make a birthday card as well as use a butterfly or fairy.

Right, off to cut kits, prepare for a workshop, do housework and get some scrapping done! (Oh and possibly cry about my camera...)
