Some New Cards


This little lady is from Lili of The Valley I coloured her in my favourite combo of green and pink, I used the Pink Petticoat freebie from a magazine for the backing paper and cut out the fab shape she is on using my new creatable die. I added some seam binding, paper flowers and a butterfly for little details. I am really pleased with this card as I like the fresh summery feel it has.

This is Tangle Mouse from High Hopes/Dustin Pike I have used him quite a bit as I love the expression on his face. The sentiment is one I got from Sentiments 4U when I won a prize, the snowflake is another creatable die, the papers are from K and Co all inked to the hilt. The strip is made using the doily punch from MS and some more seam binding.


This is from Designed 2 Delight, I paper pieced this one and added some colour with my promarkers for the sky and on the grass as it looked too bland without it. Again I used the freebie papers and the doily punch, the sentiment I made on the PC and punched out. I backed it with a nestie flower that I haven't had much use from until that is! I made the little flowers which I inked the same as the paper edges and added some card candy from my stash.

I made all three cards today at Padgate Community Centre in Warrington, I had a fantastic time chatting to everyone, seeing what they were doing and showing what I had done, thanks so much to Jo for inviting me and all the people there for making me feel so welcome.

I am entering the cards in the following challenges:

Well, I came over to see Tangle Mouse and he is so cute - that card will definitely make the recipient smile! Then I see that adorable little tea party girl. That card is gorgeous, I love pink and how you've colored her and then created the rest of the card is wonderful.
