Making Up For Lost Time

I've been busy today ... busy making cards no less!
Don't fall off your seats with excitement 'cos the enthusiasm may not last but as all crafters know, you have to go with the urge when it grabs you LOL!

So ... Do you want to see what I made? Really ?? You Sure ?? .................. ok then.

The first card uses my favourite silhouette stamp, which seems to be the one I reach for when a condolence card is needed.

The background paper is from Dovecraft and the flower was stamped (with black Stazon) onto white card, then matted onto black card. The sentiment is part of a wooden stamp set, but I can't remember where it came from.

On to happier events ... and a birthday card for a family friend.
She is the proud
'mum' to a little white Scottie Dog called "Archie" so a doggie theme was called for.
My daughter and I had spotted a cute Scottie keyring whilst browsing through a local garden centre so I added it to her card.
The DCWV 'All Dressed Up' stack provided the card base and after folding the sheet in half, the front face was trimmed to reveal the inside which is some green marbled paper matted onto black card.

The cute image was part of a QVC kit and black velvet ribbon was used to attach the keyring.

My final offering today was a quick and easy Anniversary card.
A tall white blank was wrapped with some gorgeous pink foiled tissue paper, (part of a pack picked up in The Works a while ago).
Isn't that foiling just scrummy?

I didn't want to cover up this beautiful paper with too many embellishments, so a simple white ribbon and silver tag were all the decoration needed.
A peel off message was coloured pink with permanent markers and then added to the tag .... voila!! All done.
