A birthday card from my son for my sister in law Debbie. I've used making memories papers with embossed dots bazzill cardstock together with my die cuts and gems and to finish it off to give some sparkle i used my sickle round the main flower and round the greeting. Hopefully she will like it! xx

This card is doubled as a card for my nephew in a couple of weeks and my entry for the September's challenge. I've used Funky daze backing papers with Brazzill cardstock together with my lovely pink paislee rocket stamp and brads. Hopefully they will both like it xx

A pink card for my sister in law debbie for her birthday, i used ribbon and flowers and for a twist put them at different heights and finished the card with simply sweet rub ons from doodlebug

Sorry about the pic, its a bit blurred

Well this is my first shot at a appearture card for my auntie Sandra's birthday and i don`t think its turned out too bad, instead of doing a traditional shape i thought i`d go for a funky rectangle LOL

I thought i would go all floral for my mum`s birthday card, i used making memories papers and die cut letters, swirls and flowers and mounted them onto the paper using 3d foam

A quick and colourful card for my mum from my son for her birthday, i`ve just used a coloured card blank, basic grey rub ons and die cut letters to make this card, simples! (Squeak)

I thought i would have a play with my new sugar nellie stamp gorjuss girl - sitting and by eck she is so cute!! I entered this card for the last issue of creativity competition and hopefully the judges will like it. I even experimented with my quickutz thanks embossing folders and i'm actually quite proud of this card

A birthday card for my brother from my son as finally my son has accepted his uncle and dosen`t go off crying and hiding from him (it has taken my son nearly 18 months to get used to the fact), so a cute card with skull and cross bones was in order as my brother is into being indivudual lol and adding some brightness with the papers

It was my brother's birthday back in August where he turned 20 (At last he is in the 20's like me!!) and didn't like the fact he wasn't a teenager no more lol so i was naughty and made him this card using copper mirriboard and making memories papers with my lovely pink paislee stamp, die cut lettersand buttons but i think i went a bit ott on them lol

I couldn't quite decide what sort of card to make for my mum and dad for their anniversary so i thought why not try and stick to being traditional. I used lilac cardstock and overlapped it with patterned vellum and topped it off with an organza bow and a nice sentiment

A birthday card for my cousin Holly who turned 10 bless, i couldn't pass up the chance to use my hello kitty die!! I thought i would try out the colour combo of pink and green and it turned out really nice espically with the green being more mint with polka dots and the pink being nice and bright! Holly loved it (phew!)

I made this card for my cousing Kirsty on passing her A-level exams the bright lass! I thought i would take a walk on the wildside and try something new with this card. I used making memories backing papers with bazzill cardstock and die cut letters and star. It came out quite well.

Originally a card for a young lad for his sixteen birthday but it was belated (doh!) I didn't have a clue where to begin with cards for males but you can't go wrong with bright colours. I used basic grey rub ons, ribbon and die cut present, balloons numbers on a lime green card, you can't tell with the picture but on the card but i used glitter glue as string for the balloons honest lol

A quickie of a card, a thank you card using making memories papers and bazzill cardstock with die cut letters and flowers. First attempt at a thank you card, so i thought keep it simple

I had just bought a new hello kitty die and had to try it out so came up with this card. I used making memories backing papers with papermania ribbon and buttons finished off with hello kitty herself in co-ordinating colours! Turns out i used this card for my friend Sarah's birthday.

This card was made for my friend Stacey for her birthday in August and i thought i would use the funky daze backing papers. The papers are amazing they co-ordinate so easily and i finished her card with die cut letters, ribbon bow and a button for the flower

I'm back at last!!

Sorry for not putting any cards onto my blog, the pc died and had no way to upload my cards on lol but i seem to be getting into cards and quite enjoy designing the layouts before hand. So i'll be posting my cards that i have created from the past months

Take care
