I've finished the cards that I needed to make before going away on holiday. This one is for Mum.
I have used My Craft Studio again, and the Pretty In Porcelain disc. Although this disc was all about plates it also had some really beautiful backing papers and toppers on. The larger topper has been decoupaged and I used the Cricut Storybook cartridge for the letters. This week has been very hectic for me, as my Sister, who has a serious eating disorder is in Hospital being tube feed. After a week in there she has put on 6lbs and is now going to a specialist unit for eating disorders. The good thing is that she has admitted that she does have a problem and wants to get over it. I will be sending her positive vibes from France, and hope that she has put on some more weight when I get home.

Wonderful Wife

I am posting another card for my mother-in-law today, this time it's the one for my father-in-law to give. I made this one using My Craft Studio and the Fairies, Flowers and Butterflies. I also used the new MCS pro and made plain coloured backing sheets for matting and layering by using the eyedropper and picking colours from within the backing paper (I love this feature). I also used the Cricut for the swirls and a Martha Stewart punch for the Butterflies. I then added some flowers to finish. Sue.

A card for Nan

This weekend see us off on holiday to France, we are taking my in laws. As mother-in-law is in a wheelchair and father-in-law is blind they need a bit of help to do these sort of things. While we are away it's mother-in-laws birthday and as usual I have left it to the last minute to make cards. This is the first which is from my son to his grandmother. I made this using a decoupage sheet which came in a set that I bought from Create and Craft last year, it's by Nancy Watt. I made the plain backing sheet in My Craft Studio, then used a Martha Stewart border punch down the edge, with a bit of black and red mirri card to matt and layer. Sue.

Moments In Time

I thought that I would show you this card that I have made using the Flower Soft moments in time stamps. I really enjoyed making this, I used pro markers to colour it in what I hope are colours that do not match any team in particular. I'm sure someone will put me right. Then I used the backing papers that came with the stamps. Although they are on a CD as well, which also I have been enjoying the beautiful weather today in between crafting. Long may it last!!

Ruby Wedding Card

Well I'm glad to see that the sunshine is back again, hopefully to stay a bit longer this time!
I had a phone call this morning asking if I could make a Ruby Wedding Card. The problem was they wanted it by the end of today. So I then had to find an image that I could use, I liked this one. I hope that they do too.
I used Cupcake Crafting's Potpourri, this picture was called Rose Bowl. I printed 2 of the backing sheets, and also used some red mirri card to matt and layer. The image has been decoupaged and I finished it with an insert and some peeloff corners.
