It's my little brothers birthday today - Happy Birthday Seanie! I made him this card over the weekend - you can see it was quite late as lack of light!  Both cards were made for Caardvarks - Clean and simple challenge. I wanted to make a really simple kraft card for the CAS challenge but haven't got any so tried something different using tags - TFL!

A card for Lucy

Last week I wanted to make a card for Lucy as need to post some money for some papers she had for sale, I drew a lot of ideas for different pocket cards as wanted to conceal the cash and not just put it inside the card.

I used paper from K&Company cut to size and added a cream coloured strip which I had stamped with a sentiment. I used my sewing machine to zigzag stitch along both sides of the strip of paper. After fixing the green paper to the butterfly paper with double sided tape (just along the bottom edge as the machine doesn't like sticky tape!), I stitched all around the edge of the butterfly paper which included going over the green piece.

I used a die cut label from Spellbinders Nestabilities label 1 with my Cuttlebug and stuck ribbon all the way round and added a bow with glue dots. I stamped thank you under the ribbon. I then created a pocket on the reverse with two pieces of the same colour card buy sewing them together along 3 edges and then sticking them with double sided tape to the back of the die cut.

Thanks again to Lucy for the gorgeous paper :) xxx

kids cards

I started a couple of cards yesterday for a little ones in our family and both are very similar to cards I have already made. Ran out of thread before I could finish them, so had to make a quick visit to Hobby Craft to get some more (shortest visit ever as usually in there for hours!). They are both using images from Meljen's Designs which are perfect for kids cards as they are just so adorable!

I'm meant to be making a 70th card but totally drawn a blank on what to do, so have started another card with a patchwork effect in different pink papers, but I ran out of time so this one will have to get finished in the week.
