Some New Cards

Afternoon everyone
I've just finished tweaking my header using Serif CraftArtist (which I love, love, love!), it now looks so much better.

Anyway here are a few cards I made recently as promised, I hope you like them.  Both cards were made using digi kits.

Buttercup Fairy

The cute little girl, embelishments and background paper is from a really old digi kit from Cuddly Buddly called 'Buttercup Fairy', no doubt you'll probably still be able to buy her.  I printed the image and text onto my white background base card. Then I printed another 4 of the images onto another piece of card and cut out different sections of them, so I could layer them up to give her dimension - she was so easy to cut out. I used pinflair glue to layer her up, and finally I added glitter. The background cbase ard was cut at the top and bottom using my Grand Calibur and a Edgeabilities die.

The Big Red Bus

Here's the next card, I made it for a little boy who just loves buses especially red ones.

Made from a great digi kit called 'Cool Britannia' from The Lilypad (.
I used Serif's CraftArtist to create this card.  The background and bus banner was made from bits of other digi kits and a little digital drawing/writing from me. Again this was printed off a few times and cut out.  I add a piece of acetate behind the cut out windows (sorry my photo's not very good!) for a bit of realism.  I used foam pads this time for dimension (mainly because I hate using glue...because I make such a

Hope you like them.

Footnote:  Annabel and Joseph loved their cards...particularly Joseph who couldn't stop talking about his big red bus LOL :)

New Cards

Hopefully I'll add a couple of new cards tomorrow, and with luck I'll also add them onto my Docrafts gallery as well.

Well I'm going to log myself off and get myself ready for my bed because I'm getting tired now, I must be catching up after helping mum out yesterday and visiting my step-dad.

Quick update - My step-dad's doing fine, but it'll just going to take time to get his strength back up and build up his mobility skills, so far he's doing really well.

Anyway nighty night!!

Nearly There!

Hi there
Well here's my beautiful new blog design from the the lovely Ingrid at Cute-BlogLayout.  I've just added a new font design and colour, and its almost there.  Unfortunately my header title is way too high in its new decorative box so I just need to alter it myself, and yey!! it will be finished.  So far I'm really pleased with it.
Thank you so much Ingrid!

Hey, why not give Ingrid's blog a visit , her gorgeous blog design are free and there's so many you'll be spoilt for choice. Her blog address is shown in the side bar.

Hope you like it?

Just a quick post!

Just in case you thought you'd arrived at the wrong blog I thought I'd best explain!

I've been in the process of trying to change my blog layout in between doing hospital visits, work and the rest...unsuccessfully might I add.  It's caused me soooo many headaches...anyway I just managed to get my old layout off and change it to this simple one.  Now maybe I can add my new pretty one in the next few days, that is when I get a few minutes spare.  Well here's hoping!!!

Love you all loads

Sorry everyone!

Sorry I've not posted anything for a while but I've just been so pre-occupied, as there's been a few health issues surrounding my step-dad, and as a result had to have is leg amputated...bless him.

I will post some cards hopefully by the weekend.
