Sorry I have not updated my blog late, but my father was diagnosed with bladder cancer earlier in the year and was undergoing treatment, unfortunately the treatment was not having any effect and in fact the cancer had spread and so we made the difficult decision to stop treatment.
Sadly on 12th August after contracting an infection in his brain which he could not fight off and he passed away.
Obviously have not felt like blogging but am now feeling a little more with it and will update my blog more regularly.

Made this card for a friend who had recently passed some exams - was really happy with it
until I went to write it and realised that I had stuck it on wrong so that the fold was at the bottom so using a tip I had seen on tv - made a different style of easel!
Still really pleased with it as was the recipient!

Kanban rubber stamp image coloured in using promarkers, background paper from Forever Friends paperpack and coloured in greeting same colour as darkest colour of dress. Girl attached with foam squares to lift her off the background. Something different for me but I like it!

This is a card I have made for my aunt's birthday in February (getting organised this year!).
Main image is House Mouse Decoupage from Joanna Sheen, background is from a coffee bean image I found on the internet. The stopper part is a piece of mirror board using a Martha Stewart punch.
Have entered this card into challenge at http://charismacardz.blogspot.com/

Slight variation to the one I made last year, this time the camper van is facing the other way and it has a Martha Stewart punch as a background.
Kanban topper, greeting and backing paper, Martha Stewart border punch punched on both sides of a strip of gold mirror board
