Here we are at the end of the week. I had such a busy week when I think I can't get busier I get even busier but I am having a blast. I have found new fantastic friends to shop and craft and play Mahjongg with. So you will not read complaints. I just need more sleep. Is there a pill we can take that makes us feel rested as if we had a night of sleep LOL. Nevermind, I am crazy enough as it is without any of that stuff hee hee. But really, I am having a blast, becoming a social butterfly hee hee, yes go ahead some of you I know I have some teasing coming in my inbox, but it's ok I love it.
Once Spring arrives I should be able to get some pictures of the area with some green on the trees that day can't come soon enough. I find Winter too long of a season. Me thinks!
On a cardmaking point I have more beautiful cards to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I am. Here they are:
Dianne (Australia) shared her card with description so here it is:
This is a quick & easy card for an Elvis fan - I used a black A5 card & added a background music sheet which I have had for a long time & can't remember where it came from. The 3d is one of Nikky's. As the music said happy birthday to you, there was no need for a greeting.
Jean C.'s card is also very beautiful here is her description:
The template for the folded card is by Valita, I then added a decoupage iris, which had been backed with some Spellbinder Shapeabilitie scrolls. The sheet had been created by Ursula. Added a little bling also gold edging then layered onto a card front which already had Happy Birthday printed on it.
My thanks to both Valita and Ursula and of course to yourself for your password.
Sue (Kanji) made this beautifl card. It is one of her very beautiful glitter cards. A fun intricate shape was used but I have no more additional details so if she reads this I am hoping she will want to add to it. Her cards are really beautiful and more detailed in the flesh. Glitter is hard to capture on camera.
I used a digital stamp from Mo Manning
Coloured it with my Copic pens & mounted it onto a scalloped oval cut out using my cuttlebug
Backing paper is from my stash, sorry I'm not sure who makes it, flowers & butterfly are Papermania & 3 buttons from my sewing box. The hug tag I printed myself then covered the paper with an acrylic tag.
The finished card is an Easel style
Lorna M. sent us her beautiful card and here is her describing it:
This card was made using as a frame a leftover from the use of a Spellbinders Die Template. I had leftover craft paper as well with suitable "recovery words" and I used this as a background. The bunny is from one of Nicole's sheets and was cut out and layered with thin foam dots to give it more dimention. Fredshesaid flowers where added as pretty decoration and the sentiment used was a sticker.
Hazel made this lovely A4 Gatefold card....
Debbie Moore -Magical Moments disc for the stunning lady and backing paper,the lady printed on photo paper mat and layered onto both sides of the gatefold, and finished off with a feather.I hope you like it.
Joan C.'s description below:
I have used 4.25 X 5.5 inch Side Step card template by d0npen (Penny Wessenauer) & the
downloaded 3D & papers are from Craftsuprint. The front white piece is embossed using my new
Cuttlebug folder Organic Flourish. I have topped it off with a piece of matching ribbon & bow.
Naomi's description of her beautiful card:
White textured card cut to A5 size
2 shades green textured card (one dark, one light) - both embossed with Cuttlebug leaf embossing folder.
Attached the dark piece to white card, then cut around the branches & leaves of light green then fixed to dark green for 3d type effect using foam squares
Butterflys are made from clear Shrinkydink and cut using Cuttlebug butterfly die and then embossed. Coloured with permanent pen then "cooked" for 1 minute to shrink. Added some diamantes for body then attached to branch with more foam squares.
Added gold corners and gold Smooch was used to enhance leaves.
Added greeting using scrap light green and white card to size. Attached again with foam squares to lift away from card.
