Well I have managed to get 3 more cards done for the first order. I have finished the 3 'girlie' ones and managed just the 1male card. I find it hard to do male cards and she does want them all different!!!

This one I used dark brown cardstock from local market, Cuttlebug Spots & Dots Embossing Folder, DCWV Matt Stack, Dovecraft Brads and my computer to print 'ONLY ME'. I also used some more PLASMA at the bottom of the card - this bit I found is a lot thicker than the bit I used on the other nights card (fridays post)!!!

I used the brads this time to attach the plasma to the card instead of glue. I also did a bit of faux stitching - first time and I think it looks ok!

This one is quite bright in real life - I hope she likes it!!
I used DCWV Matt Stack, Cuttlebug Spots & Dots Embossing Folder, Quickutz Flower Die, ribbon from local shop, and once again text from computer.

I quite like the colours on this one - very calming!!! I used DCWV Matt Stack (again), spotty paper from LCS (dont know the maker), Cuttlebug Paisley Dies, Ribbon from USA, Bling LCS? and text from my computer.

Now I havent met this lady and I dont know what her tastes are, so I think upto now there is a good mixture of cards and colours.


Just a quick post.

Never managed to do anything 'crafty' yesterday - I spent some quality time with hubby, kids and my dad. And I also managed to catch up on some ironing.

I got a phonecall from my best mate this afternoon and she remembered to take in my box of cards to work with her - not bad she has had them nearly 2 weeks now!!! Well she phoned to ask me if i could do some cards for her workmates - so in one order I have 6 cards to make 3 male and 3 female all to have ONLY ME on the front of them. As you can see in the piccy below here is the first one.

The base card is from my LCS, the striped paper is Papermania, flower is Dovecraft???, brad is dovecraft. The swirl I cut out by hand - I can only say I am glad I didnt do it any smaller!!!!

The other order is for 4 cards - 1 for Mum on your 60th, 1 Mum normal birthday, 1 birthday Brother and 1 birthday Sister. I have a few weeks to get them done as they arent needed soon (thankfully!!!).

So watch this space as I will have more to post!!!!
