Six Happy Birthday Rub On Cards






















I have had a couple of days enjoy myself in the embossing and rub on mode. I hope you enjoy seeing what I have been up to. All six cards have been created by using FLOWERS OF THE MONTH book of 3 DECALS TEXTURED RUB ONS from QVC. I have chosen the right flower for each person for the month they were born. Of course there are some that have the same flower as their birthday is the same month but I have embossed a different background. Thank you for looking.

Blank Insert Card


I have left this card blank as I felt it could be used for any occassion. The rub ons are from QVC, sorry I can not remember the number. It is FLOWERS OF THE MONTH book of 3 DECALS TEXTURED RUB ONS. The embossing background says - HI - GRIN - SWEET - JOY - DEAR - SMILE - HAPPY - LOVE.

Easter Rub On Cards
















I have started my Easter cards early this year and this is the second posting I have made on the subject this year already.Four out of the batch of five cards have been made with CREATA RUB ONS from QVC, item number 583319 FVROO. The other one is also from QVC, it is from the FLOWERS OF THE MONTH book of 3 DECALS TEXTURED RUB ONS. Sorry I can not remember the number. Some of the pictures may look the same but I have used different embossing backgrounds. Thank you for looking.

A Card from A Special Friend


I received this card on the 27th January 2009 from a very Special Friend. She made this card for me to pay homage to my "Baby" who sadly left this world on 20th January. The lady in question knows who she is and I don't want to embarrass her by naming her. Tony & I appreciated this lovely gesture and will treasure this card for ever.

D'Arcy 10th June 1995 - 20th January 2009


Thank you to all you wonderful and kind well wishers this past week, that has given myself and Tony support over the loss of our "baby" D'Arcy. We thought it would be nice if we showed you a picture of him.


THANK YOU ALL


Love

Cathy

Valentine Hedgehog


This A6 Hedgehog card has been made using a Penny Black stamp called Hook,Line & Sinker 3777H it is from the Margaret Sherry Collection. I have used the Lyra Aquacolour crayons from Joanna Sheen to watercolour it and a touch of Sakura Stardust pens on the heart to add a touch of glitter. For the mount I have used the Spellbinders Wizard Nestabilities through my Cuttlebug machine. Thank You for looking at my cards today.

Five Mens Decoupage
















These five Mens Decoupage cards have been made using a Decoupage kit I bought from QVC. I have had it ages so I am sorry I do not have any information on it. I still have loads left in the kit to make plenty more. I probably haven't used it because I do not get any satisfaction anymore from using these kits. I have loads of other similar type kits that I was silly to buy, I expect they will get used eventually.

Easter Hedgehog


This A6 card has been made using the Penny Black stamp called Easter March 3112J from the Margaret Sherry Collection. I have used a Spellbinders Wizard Nestabilities through my Cuttlebug for the shape I have stamped on. I have Watercoloured it using the Lyra Aquacolour crayons from Joanna Sheen. I have also used sakura stardust pens in places to add glitter.

Gardening Ted


This 6inch x 6inch square card has been made using an unmounted stamp from the Teddy Bear stamp range from Joanna Sheen. This one came from one called Bear Grandparents JS241.


I have stamped it twice, second one being decoupaged. It has been watercoloured using Watercolour pencils from WHSmiths, I didn't use water I used Sansodor a low odour solvent.

The backing paper is from my vast stash and the flower is Flora Doddles range from Joanna Sheen.
