Pop-up snowman

This is the first pop-up card I have made, and I am amzed at how simple it was (I can see a lot more of these coming along!!). The snowman is from Christmas Cheer, and the stamps are by Inkadinkado.

Dog of the Day!!

My friend Ruth took her 16 year old Border Collie to a dog show organised and judged by Martin Clunes yesterday. (He lives near us, and organises a similar event on his land each year to raise money for local charities-this year it was the hospice.) Anyway, Ruth entered Belle in the "Dog of the Day" class, and she came 1st!!! Belle won a silver cup, a pink rosette, and a sack of dog food. Ruth was so happy she cried and made her mascara run!! I made this card for Belle to celebrate her win! The dog and the trophy are cut from Everyday Paper Dolls, the lettering is from Opposites Attract, and the rosette is from Plantin Schoolbook.

This is for Lauren who will be 17 on the 27th. I used the car cut from Sweethaerts, but left out some of the details....I did add an "L" plate though as she will be starting driving lessons! The lettering is from Opposites Attract.

Happy Birthday Carl!!!

I was inspired to make this "pocket" card by a picture I saw in a magazine. I cut both the pocket and the tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more.

50 sucks!!!

I have long admired the lovely lollipop bouquets that I have seen on the Cricut messageboard, and finally I have had the opportunity to make one. A friend of my husband's has just been 50, and we are going to his party on Friday.

I bought a large pot from the garden centre and filled it with oasis. I covered this with foil, and then used a skewer to make 50 holes, into which I pushed the assortment of lollies. I cut the "50" and "sucks" from Mickey Font, and then decorated the band with a greeting from A Child's Year, and lots more lollies cut from Doodlecharms.

Now I just need someone else to have a significant birthday so I can make another!!!

Yet another shaped card!! This is cut from the Paisley cartridge, and I added the two flowers at the base so that it would stand up,

Colouring with promarkers

This could be seriously addictive, but takes a-g-e-s (probably just me!!) The image is a lovely Ollyfant stamp, and I added a stocking cut from Joys of the Season just for fun!

Snowglobes!!! I'm getting ready for Christmas!!!

The globes are cut from Joys of the Season, and I added shop bought snowman stickers how quick and easy is that??

Put your feet up Lynne.....

I made this especially for my friend Lynne. The feet are from New Arrival, and the font is from Nursery Rhymes....I just hope that she does as she's told!!!!
