A few more of my parchment cards I made a few yrs ago!

I really liked this card when I had made it, it was just right for the girl who's wedding it was!!!

As you can see this is a very pretty parchment Christmas tree, I LOVE IT!!!

I must admit I think this one is really lovely, I made him for my husband many moons ago now, as he looks just like my husband, but without the beard!!lololol.

Hello again, well here is a lovely little card I made for a friend of mine, it was for her birthday, I think it is such a lovely happy looking card, it makes me smile every time I look at it!!
And it could be used for most other special days as well as birthdays, and it's very easy to make too!
I made the bottom of the box that lovely shade of apple green because I think it shows the card off to it's best!!

new cards!

I found this picture on the internet and instantly fell in love with it!1
My son loves birds, and goes bird watching whenever he can find the time, so I just had turn this picture into a card for him!

I did notice that the tap didn't have a little drip coming out of it, so I went into and added one to it!

I must admit I really love this card, it is acetate, with a blue glitter flower pattern on it, and when you have it in your hand it looks stunning!! I love the colors too!!

The photo of the ballerina was on Pinterest, and her beautiful dress reminded me of a flower, so I have put her into the heart of a rose, and I think it works well!!

This picture I find Enchanting, the ladies dress is just stunningly beautiful, so I have used it as an Anniversary card!!

Butterfly picture

Good Morning to everyone, my daughter has just finished decorating her bedroom and wants some pictures for the walls, and asked me if I would make her something, I know she loves butterflies so made this picture for her, I downloaded the photo of the roses from the internet and printed it onto a A4 sheet of Polaroid Art Canvas, mounted it onto some card and printed out some butterflies onto parchment paper, cut them out and glued them on in a random pattern, and I think it looks very pretty! don't you?

Golden Wedding card

Hello everyone, just finished this card today, for a Golden Wedding, I used the Spellbinders die Chantilly Flourish, I used four of them to make this gorgeous Doillie.

I've seen these cards around for quite a while now and I really like them, so the other day I decided to have a go and make one of my own, I think they are a card that you could send for your boyfriend or husbands birthday or Valentines day!!

I saw a card a while ago very similar to this one and thought how pretty it was, I love butterflies don't you???

Such a long time!

It is such a long time since I came on here, but we have had a family crisis so I hope everyone will forgive me.
I haven't felt like making any cards for a while now, but I have decided it was time to get cracking again.
It was my SIL's birthday a few days ago and so I made her this very simple little card but which I thought was very pretty.
I used a Martha Stewards lace edge
punch down the opening edge, and
I thought it looked very pretty just like
that, and decided to leave it just the
it is!

Card for men

I saw a card very similar to this and tried very hard to make it, but couldn't follow the instructions as they were very hard to understand, so visited YouTube and there are quite a number of videos showing how to fold these wonderful little shirts!!
Made this for our grandsons birthday.
