Wedding Card

The little drawing on this wedding card was drawn in my Pazzles.

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

A little piglet.

A very unusual request for an 18th birthday, but it turned out very well. I hope it is not the end of a beautiful friendship.
Base card and gems from Craft creations.
Strips of paper are from a paperstack, I forgot the name.
The pig and name are drawn and cut with Pazzles, the nose is cut with 2 punches.
The edges are all inked with beige ink and I've uesed pro markers for the red on the feet and nose.
Ribbon and wobbly eyes from my box.

It's been a while.....

Hi everyone,
Yes a long time since I was here, there were not enough hours in the day, so I am going to try and post up a card every day instead of a whole series.
It has been raining here constantly since last night, but I prefer this to the snow and frost across the water.
Today was wedding day as I had an order for 4 wedding cards for the same couple, the text was in Irish so the brain was taxed. Here is one of them.

Base card, gems and white card from Craft Creations
Vellum from my friend Babs
Pearls and bow from my box
Sentiment is computer generated.
The dress is drawn and cut with Pazzles, I used a daisy punch for the flower and a spellbinder die.

Lots of wedding work for me yet, I am meeting a lovely bride on saturday to confirm her choice of invitations and a few details need to be ironed out," it is all in the detail "with weddings, just what I love.
