West Midlands, United Kingdom
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!

3 Cards - 3 Challenges

This first card is made for this week's challenge on Whiff of Joy #8 - Boys Christmas card but no blue!
I made this card for my son using papers from Crafters Companion Christmas CD and Whiff of Joy stamp coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter. Circles cut on cuttlebug using nesties with snowflake embellishments and stickles to finish.
This card is made for my twin sister for her birthday. I used a sketch of mine from Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge wk1 for the layout. The challenge this week on Forever Friends was "Papermania" - to use 3 types of paper. The papers are from Cuddly Buddly (I did make the red more vibrant on my software) with satin and velvet ribbon border. The FF bear is coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter and cut on cuttlebug using nesties. The sister greeting is made on my PC (thanks Donna for the tutorial XXX) Gems, flowers and stickles added to finish.

This last card is made for my MIL birthday which fit very well with the challenge this week on Crafty Creations #26 - cards for Mum!
The mandala flower is from a freebie download from Fred, She Said blog. I cut the flowers in several layers and built up on foam pads. Sakura Stardust pens added to the borders and stickles for some sparkle. The backing paper is made using the same image on "My Craft Studio" software from C&C. The tag is cut from the same card with peel offs, ribbon, flowers and gems to finish. Not my fave type of card but MIL loves them.
