This is a card for my good friend and colleague Laura, inspired by a card I saw here http://craftysahmiam.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/trifold-punched-hearts-card.html
I used the Cricut cartridge "Simply Charmed" to cut out the hearts.

Father's Day gifts

I thought I would cover some bars of chocolate as Fathers Day gifts, and did a search online for inspiration. I found a great idea here http://cbyar.blogspot.co.uk/2011/06/sweet-jacket-tutorial.html
and had a go with some small bars of a very well known chocolate! As you can see the "shirt" pulls out to reveal a greeting.

Baby Shower card

A friend of mine asked me to make her a baby shower card......so I had a look on Pinterest and was inspired by the baby card here http://bellablvd.typepad.com/bella_blvd/2012/05/cards-on-thursdays-1.html
I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the letters, and embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder.

Get Well Soon

My friend and colleague Wendy fell and broke several ribs recently. In our office she is the first to organise cards and flowers for others so I thought we had better not forget her! I made this card with another lovely Penny Black stamp (Long-Stem Cuties).

I made this card for my husband's nephew who will be eight next week. I cut the robo-dog from the "Robotz" cartridge.

Silver Wedding

My sister-in-law and brother-in-law have their silver wedding anniversary next week. I made this card using primarily cricut cuts. I think the numbers were from the "Nursery Rhyme" cartridge, and I welded the Plantin Schoolbook hearts with my Gypsy. The numbers are silver, but in the photo are reflecting the red of my I-pad cover!

Bar Mitzvah

A friend of mine asked me to make a Bar Mitzvah card. I used the star from "Joys of the Season" cartridge, and welded some letters from "Gypsy Font". The star is really silver, but is reflecting the red of my I-pad cover!!
