Chistmas Star Wreath



Just one last post for the day ladies. This is a star wreath I brought after the new year to decorate for this coming christmas. I used some totally yummy and not to mention gorgeous Bo Bunny patterned papers that it took me about two months to get! Who'd had thought they'd be so popular and so hard to get! Anyways... it took me ages to get it all put together but I am so happy with how it turned out. I wanted to get some white doves to go on it but couldn't find what I wanted so it may be updated at a later stage! Have a great day everyone! Hugs xo Shirl

OMG

OMG I am having such trouble posting today.... so what was going to be one post has been turned into two.... this is the card that Nicayla ended getting for her birthday. My gorgeous niece Trish started making an explosion box card and I just couldn't resist making one for Nicayla. She had told me she wanted a card that I earlier posted on here but she was more than delighted with her new card. I filled it with a photo of her from each year of her life and had two spaces left. So they both became tab holders - one with birthday wishes and one with a voucher for Nicayla to get her a new leotard for her birthday! So hope it inspires someone!






Bye for now but remember to come back in a few days ladies for a link up to the new blog and lots of fun sketches to try out!

A Beautiful Day

OMG I didn't realise it has been so long since I updated my blog..... so sorry ladies. Partly due to my son who (got to love teens now don't you?!?!) managed to trash all our allocated gigs for the month in like a week! So we have been restricted to almost dial up for two weeks - GRRRRRRRRRR!! Back now and I can promise more regular updates.

I am so excited girls as I have just sent off my very first card submission created from my very first ever sketch for my new DESIGN TEAM gig. So stay tuned as I will be back in a few short days to link you in to their amazing blog. Then you can join me and all the other very talented (not to mention lovely) ladies in creating some wicked cards and layouts as well.

In the meantime a few little things I have been working on in the past few days (weeks!).

Firstly a very simple male card made for Jordie's best mate:



His Mum makes cards as well so I wanted to keep this pretty simple!

Sliding Easel Card.....




Hi Everyone

Well trying to be good here and remembering to update my blog a little more often than I should! My sweet niece challenged us ladies over at Papercraft Addictions to make some different styles of cards such as Sliding Easel Cards. Well I haven't made a sliding card in ages so I got all motivated and made a couple over the past two days! Here is a very basic one I thought I would share with you all. A big thanks to Trish for the much needed inspiration. Love ya sweetie. xo Shirl
