Christmas card with circle punch.

It is all about punches these days and using up some very small snippets I haven't the heart to throw out. This card is a bit tricky to put together but it looks perfect for a teen boy.I used different circle punches, cut the star with a punch and the snowflakes are punched as well.
I got the inspiration for this card on Pinterest last year and love it.
This card is going to
I missed last weeks deadline for the playground (lots of Christmas work) but I hope to play lots in the furure.

Christmas card with SU owl punch

After a long wait I got the SU owl punch and made lots of them. It takes a little time and patience to put them together but they are worth it. They are very handy to use up small pieces of card Here is a Christmas card I made with these little owls. The little hat is cut with Pazzles and finished with white wool and glitter. I will enter this card in Di's snippet challenge
I've not had much time this year to enter any challenges but I am hoping to change this.

Baby card with bear

For a long time  I have been looking for a nice bear die but there just isn't one out there I like. Last year I started on a drawing  but didn't like it so I left it till last week when I made my original drawing simpler. Sometimes I want a lot of detail but it doesn't always look good. I got my inspiration from a very old children's book and I like her. Just have to find a name for her now. I decided on female as there are way too many male bears around lol.
She is cut with Pazzles and the stars are done with a punch

Baby card

Something different this time, I was doing some long overdue drawing this week-end and came up with this design. It is a first for me to draw such detail in Pazzles. Normaly I don't print much on my cards but I thought this would be fun and it makes a nice change.

The graphics and the pram are drawn by me in Pazzles, the pram is then cut with Pazzles. The sentiment is done in Word.

Wedding card

A wedding order I had last week and I had to use the rose ribbon I bought this week, I love it on this card. I added some glitter but it is hard to see.

Base card, pearl card, ribbon and gems all from Craft Creations. I printed the names and sentiment first and cut them with oval nesties.

Birthday card for my mum

It's been a long time again but I have been very busy with card orders and wedding invitations. A few more today and that should see me through another  large order.

While in the US last month I tried byuing the large labels nestie, but everyone was sold out so I had to draw it myself. It is cut on my Pazzles in Stardream card and rainbow card. The butterflies are punched with the layered punch from EK succes. It is a fab punch and I've used it a lot. The white flowers are from Michaels and the pink flower was a birthday gift from Cecilia. I have invested in some of these myself now and love them.

I'd a flash of inspiration for something completely different for Valentine's day, nice and simple yet striking. It looks great IRL as the white pearl card doesn't show up very well on the picture
