I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Two Double Whammy Cards

I have had these two cards on my craft table part done for a couple of days, but as I have had a horrible cold (on my two days off work too) I didn't finish them.



This first card is made for: -

  1. ABC Challenge - Individual (and DT Call - fingers crossed!!!!)
  2. Friday Sketchers #20 - Layout

The image is one of my new Whiff of Joy stamps coloured with promarkers and stickles glitter glue on her wings, with papers from Pink Petticoat "His n Hers" set, with the brown paper put through my cuttlebug in Happy Birthday embossing folder. Three pink button to finish.

This second card is for another two challenges: -

  1. Sketch Saturday #17 - Layout

The Edwin, mushrooms and leaves are all from my Fall Magnolia Stamp Club set, coloured with promarkers and set on scallop rectangle cut with nesties on my cuttlebug. The papers are from Kay Miller Designs "All Organic" set. Four brads in the corners to finish.
