Seven Daisy & Dandelion Decoupage/ Three Disney Cards

Hi Folks, hope you have all been well in the six days since I last posted on my blog. The weather is still mild which unfortunatley will not help to kill all the bugs but it is nice we haven't got to have the heating on full blast.

I have been busy making cards both for sale and personal. Not sure how we will stand with posting cards but thought I had better go ahead and make them incase a miracle happens and the strike is over by the time they have to be posted.

The three cards below have been made by downloading the Disney images fromm a free site on Google. They are just outline drawings to colour in. I have used Promarkers to colour them and it is my first attempt of using them. I didn't try to do the shading being as it was the first time, I just wanted to get the feel of them. Other half said it looked like I had downloaded them coloured, not sure if he meant it as a compliment or not? I cut round the images and mounted them on to Spellbinders diecuts put through my Cuttlebug.






The seven cards below are from a Daisy & Dandelion kit I bought from QVC. They are a mixed kit. There was some nice stamps both Christmas and Birthday images. Also decoupage images on a sheet again both Christmas & Birthday. Along with peel offs. The cards below of course are easy and quick ones from the decoupage sheets.

































Thank you for taking the time to look today and any comments you may leave are very welcome.

Selection of Wedding and 21st Cards

Firstly I must say sorry for not being around for the past couple of weeks but the time has gone so fast and I have been busy visiting my Brother in law and Sister in law for a couple of days ( we always have a laugh). Secondly I have been busy making cards for a few orders I had. I hope you like the following cards.


This card was made for a customers Daughters 21st, all I was it had to be very girly and had to be pink, purple or lilac and have butterflies on it. The backing paper was from Crafters Companion's "Flower Fairies Friends" CDROM's, I choose the Lavender disc. The image is also Lavender and is a stamped image, watercoloured with Cosmic Shimmers. The glittered backing mount and the glittered butterflies have been cut from glitter card and Spellbinders die cuts put through my Cuttlebug. Ribbon from my stash. It is an 8 x 8 card wrap in lilac tissue with a nice bow.

This is for a Wedding card order I had and is one of five I made for her to choose as she has two weddings to go to. This is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Romance and both the backing paper and the image are from this very useful CDROM. It is again an 8 x 8 card and it was wrapped in pink tissue with a nice bow.


This card is an A5 card for the same order. The decoupaged image is from Joanna Sheen's "Heavenly Cards". The backing paper is from my stash and has little hearts all over it. Ribbon from stash. The envelope is a pearl gold one.


This card is another 8 x 8 card wrapped in blue tissue with a nice bow. The backing paper and decoupaged image is from Joanna Sheen's "Eastern Treasures" CDROM. The tassel is also from Joanna Sheen.


This a A5 card and the backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's "Victorian Romance" CDROM but the image is one I found on google and I have used before. Flower spray is also from Joanna Sheen.


This 8 x 8 card was originally made for the 21st order as a second choice but the other one was chosen. I hadn't adhered the greeting so it could be used for something else if not chosen. The backing paper and image are from Joanna Sheen's "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" CDROM. All mounted on to silver mirri board. Again wrapped in pink tissue with a nice bow.

All the above cards have been made by using "Stardream" double sided pearl card also bought from Joanna Sheen.
Thank you so much for visiting today and I will I promise catch up with your blogs soon.

Three Disney Christmas cards, one Baby Boy card.

Hi Folks, I haven't been around for awhile as I have been to France to see our Daughter who lives there. Had a super time, ate and drunk far too much so it is back on the diet now!!!

These four cards were made before I went but the last few days before leaving were hectic and my photographer was not available.

The following three cards have all been produced from Disney images taken from Google. Sorry two of them are the wrong way round but I can't seem to turn them. They have all been printed onto Glossy Photographic paper. Donald Duck has been matted onto red Mirri card and has red Mirri card toppers made by using Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Holiday Cheer" and put through my Cuttlebug. One of the Winnie the Poo cards has been matted onto silver and the other one onto gold and I have used the same Spellbinders Shapeabilities for the toppers.






The card below has been made using Joanna Sheen's CDROM "Baby Love". The topper and backing paper have been printed onto Satin Photographic paper. The card for both the main and matting and layering is Star Dream also from Joanna.


Thank you so much for taking the time to look and I will try my best to look all your lovely blogs in the next few days. I have to wade my way through all my washing and ironing first. What joy!!!!
