For my daughter-in-law

My daughter-in-law's birthday is on Friday and I had made a card much like this for her but yesterday a lady wanted a few cards and I showed her the card I had done for Maggie (of course she did not know that it was for Maggie) and she immediately said "oh! I'll have that" so I'm afraid business comes first - so she took that and the two pink/white ones that I have just shown plus another that I still had from a little while back - so I was very pleased as I sell all my cards for cancer.  This is the latest edition of the card for Maggie.  The image is a digi stamp which I got from Crafts and Me and the background is a stamp which I have recently bought from Waltzingmouse stamps, the pearls are from Wild Orchid and ribbon from my stash.

Variation on a theme

After seeing the romantic rectangles being used on Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken I just had to try this card.   Becca makes the most beautiful feminine cards and when I saw this on her blog for 6th February I had to try it with the dies that I owned.  Do take a look on her blog it is a treat.

A card for family

Hi everybody and a very warm welcome to Pat.  I only remembered yesterday that one of my relatives will be 82 tomorrow - so I had to come up with something fairly quickly and this is the card that is winging it's way right now.  The only dies I used were the Anja corner from Marianne and the large floral oval from spellbinders the little black corners were cut off an ironworks motif die cut.  The lovely paper was part of a candy I won and I have to say I really love it.

A quick hello.

Hi everybody.  First of all a huge welcome to Willie, Lynne, Marja, June, Vic and Gerrie.  I have not been posting over the last few weeks but I have been beavering away in the background.  I had a number of cards to do which were special requests but I could not display them as they had personal photographs as the focal point .  This card  was one that I did  just to try out my new floral ovals dies.  These are beautiful dies and I really love them.  Hopefully now I will be able to get some more cards done as I have some more new dies that I am looking forward to trying out - they are the romantic rectangles and they look so pretty.  Marie-Louise
