I have had a special personalised card requests recently. So thought I should pop in and share these with you. I do love that I can make a card to suit the recipient.
This first one was for a young fisherman, Xavier who recently had his 10th birthday.
A friend of my youngest daughter had her 16th birthday recently, and you bet she loves her dog!
A personalised engagement card for a friend of my aunt.
I had some card requests recently. Here are a few of my creations.
First up is Annabelle stamps little monster. Coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut & popped up on card front.
Next I have a couple of cards made using Flourishes Kids at Play with sentiments from Uniquely and Jane’s Doodles.
I also have some Christmas cards to share. These were inspired by Therese at Lostinpaper here. These were quick to put together without colouring the elf image.
Thanks for stopping by
I am just in time to link up to this months challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
I was inspired to make this card from the minute I saw the mood board – some 3 weeks ago!
I was writing something earlier today and had the “AH” moment when I realised it was the last day of the month! So after swimming tonight I put my inspiration into action – hence the poor picture quality – no outside pics at 9.30 at night.
Here is my card
The image from SU Made with love was stamped onto some IBS Vintage Floral paper and die cut with Baby’s First Framelits die. I added some pink lacey elastic left over from leggins I made Miss A (11) when she was a toddler! and added a little pink ribbon for the waist band and a ribbon bow.
The little dancers, particularly the little one in the middle of the mood board were my inspiration. This was layered onto the card front and finished with a sentiment from Flourishes Kids at Play.

Sorry not been a post for awhile. I have been busy sewing dance costumes and dresses for the girls. Maybe I will share some pics later when I am finished. Any way on with my share for today.
This weeks challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is jubes with the added challenge of vintage.
I have taken my inspiration from the vintage more than the colour from the pic – although I have used a bit of red in the paper and the red pearls.
I have used paper from Grace Taylor “vintage” along with kraft cardstock from SBB. The large flower and lace are from Kaisercraft the smaller flowers I had in my stash. The red pearls are from Bo Bunny. The main image is Flourishes kids at play stamped in PTI Kraft ink with a border punch down one edge.
I am linking this upto the challenge at Flourishes
Inspired by Stamping
the colours red/rose, white & green (a touch of green in the pre made flowers)
Thanks for stopping for a peek.
The Challenge at Flourishes this week is to use a doily.
Here is my card.
I have used Cheery Lynn French Pastry Die in black card stock mounted onto Basic Grey Indie Bloom paper. The image from Flourishes Kids at Play is stamped onto SU Card stock in black ink.
The flowers are die cut from scraps using MFT dies and finished with a black pearl. The ribbon and button are from my stash and the twine threaded through the button is from Hemptique.
Hope you have a great weekend planned!
Thanks for taking a peek.
Happy Sunday everyone.
Sharing a couple of cards.
This first card I made using Flourishes Kids at Play and Annabelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells “Happy Birthday” Sentiment.
I started this card with a black card front. I cut the patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket Social Club just short of the amount I needed so I could trim and have my two black lines showing through. I then stamped my image using Versa fine Onyx Black on SBB kraft cardstock. I then used my distressing tool to sponge various inks onto my background. The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut scallop which I taped to the side of my image. Before I attached my image to the card front with foam tabs I felt it needed a little brightening up so I added some red cardstock from my scraps stash. I am linnking this upto the following challenges.
(I turned this sketch to the side)
My second card uses Flourishes Kids at Play and the sentiment is from Call me also by Flourishes stamped in SU Crumb Cake ink. I have CAS(E) this card from http://flourishes.org/2013/06/focus-on-the-beach-and-more-about-silke/
This is the original
For my card I have used SBB Kraft Cardstock, October Afternoon Farmhouse 8 x 8 pad along with Kaisercraft lace, Sizzix SU stripe embossing folder, Annabelle Stamps Natural Hemp Dienamics Rolled rose and CC Designs Leafy Branch dies. The button, ribbon, pearls and yellow cardstock are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping and taking a peek. I enjoy reading the comments you leave.
Hope the rest of your weekend is great.
I have used Flourishes Kids at Play set and AnnaBelle Stamps Garden Silhouettes and a variation of the masking technique shown at AnnaBelle Stamps Community
– I used acetate for the mask because that is what I had on hand.
I used Stampin UP! So Saffron and Certainly Celery inks with a blending tool to get the background panel.
I am linking this little set up to the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique. They have the most yummy looking cup cakes for their challenges. Don’t they look good?
and I was enjoying this so I made a few more (SU Pacific Point ink used here) for this sketch
Thanks for stopping – hope your weekend has been great.
