March Cards

Hiya, happy Spring, hope you are enjoying the sunshine. The weather is chilly and very breezy but sunny this morning and as I have the day off I'm going to enjoy it :)

I've added a link in my blogs I follow section to Valitas blog, she is a Stampin Up demonstrator and a fabulously creative person. I have been watching her videos on You Tube for a while now and love how inventive she is, go check out her blog, she does the most amazing things with punches :)

Well I have failed miserably in keeping my blog up to date again, I've been so busy with work and home I just haven't had any time to do anything for myself lol! I will be glad when all the decorating and mess is over :)

Just a few cards for this month, trying to use up some old stash, so I have Mother's day cards made from some old K&Co papers, more flowers, a boys BD card, a couple of new baby cards and a couple of cards made using the Hunkydory Flutterby kit. Hope you like them :)

Sorry about the awful quality of the photos, one day I might eventually get a proper photo corner set up lol!

Happy Crafting

First card is a commissioned card for a work colleague, this is for her 2nd grandson who was born on Monday :) She was thrilled to bits with it and said she couldn't wait to give it to her daughter.

The images are from The Clip Art Fairy and are on the The Book a Easel & Plaques CD. The welcome baby stamp is from the Punch Bunch Stampin up set, the little hands, duck and bottles are from an old set and I can't remember who it was made by. The sentiment was cut using the Nursery Rhymes cart for the Cricut.

The card is and easel card with a mini book on the base, there is an area for a hand written message, a page for putting the baby's details and then at the back a photo frame to put a piccy in :) The box uses the same sentiment as the card.

Another commissioned card, it must be the season for babies as the lady I made this for was also due to have a baby too :) This was for her sister-in-law who had a gorgeous baby girl :)

Also commissioned, two Mother's day cards for the same lady, both using Hunkydory products, the insides were done in MCS to match.

Cards for my Mum, Step Mum and Mum in law for Mother's day, the gift bags are so easy to make and look beautiful. K&Co papers were used, the images were stamped with memento inks and then just highlighted with a touch of chalk. Link for the tutorial for the bag is by WunsaponaTime

Some more flowers I made, the tutorials for these can be found on Jannavile's channel on You Tube

When I said a few cards I actually meant quite a few lol! I just found some more photos on my phone, although I am missing a photo of a card I made for a work colleague son for his 40th, quite disappointed I didn't take a photo as I was quite pleased with the finished card.

Two more commissioned cards, one using Joanna Sheens, Oriental Treasures CD and the other using a kit from the internet, I can't remember where I got it so will have to have a dig through my files :)
