Been busy making cards..for a change!

Lately I really don't get the time to craft like I did a while back. I'm always designing new stuff and then passing it onto my Design Team members for them to work their magic with so it has been a nice change to be able to make a few cards for my best friends 30th birthday. Now it's not until Saturday but I am trusting that as she is away in the South of France on holiday she wont be bothering to look at this blog, so I thought I would share a couple of cards I made. If I'm wrong..Corrina don't look any further!!!

The first one is a card I made for her from her little girl Alana,



This card was made using my download collection Shabby Saturday, her husband wanted it to be pink and girly so I included a super cute picture of Alana at the Zoo, she has a rather grumpy face on her but it's still a great picture just because of that!! I added buttons to give some texture and got out my scalloped Nestabilities for the circle. As usual I made the card a strange size so I made a matching box using more papers from the collection printed directly on to card.

This next card is from Ian and I to her and I decided to move away from the totally pink look..



I used my download collection Paper Blossom for this one and created the number thirty in Photoshop. I printed everything out onto card and cut out the thirty and mounted it on foam pads. I finally got my new Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder out of the packet and used that on the backing of the sentiment. The ribbon is some lush stuff I bought from Ribbon Oasis a while ago..ummm must go back and get some more!!

Well that's the card making for now..my Moms birthday is next so that's the next project, she's a card maker and a member of my design team so I'd better make an effort..no last min cards for her!!
Speak again soon
