I am whispering so my nextdoor neighbour doesn't look and see her birthday card ....wasn't sure if to post it yet cus its not her birthday till 24th...but I thought if I whispered she might not hear and look lol...

Ammara's card is done from a Christine Coleman birthday flowers pattern...and as Ammara is such a girlie girl and absolutely lurves pink I thought I would mount it on pink....and for those of you that have got or have seen this pattern, you will know that its not ment to be 3d ....well I cocked up lol....I used my mapping pen on the flower, embossed all that, then started on the grid work without reading the distructions....well it said bold grid...lolol well I only used fine grid so all the measurement were wrong lol...so decided to cut the flowers out and do the grid work on another piece of parchment...got there in the end

thanks for looking your comments are always welcome

Sketch and Stash challenge

Well after spending ages trying to decide what to use for this challange, I decide to use some of my new papers that I had brought on Monday night at my craft class....as I was in absolute agony with my knee (having fell last week and kissed the pavement outside my front door lol) my darling hubby had to help me upstairs to my class...(usually I have a good ole rummage around the shop and always buy £2 worth of papers) well after getting settled down and having a good ole chin wag I remembered I hadn't paid my fee...so I sent KT down to pay (she always comes along for the ideas) and gave her an extra £2 to get some papers. I thought her picking might change my colours that I use (black and white, orange and brown are my absolute favs at the mo) well she came back with 40 sheets of the most outragious colours....oranges, teal, red (bright red) and some lovely warm greens and yellows that I would never ever had picked up...so the papers used to make this card are new thanks to KT lol

The image is a digi download from http://www.charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/acatalog/Holly_and_Madison.html the sentiment stamp is a block stamp from Create and Craft (wilkinsons £1.80 lol) ...the flower is a download from http://fred-she-said.blogspot.com/ and as I said the papers were from my local craft shop...my trusty corner rounder thingy lol..and my procraft corner die cut...H20's to paint her and a few bits a stickles to make it look like bubbles coming outta her glass..
Thanks for looking hugs

So I went to craft class last night card in hand and she wasn't blurry there lol...typical I get all stressed and in a flap and she doesn't go...

Anyway thought I would share a pic of it with you....your commemts are always welcomeI have used the hearts bug folder for the backing, the Glitter Girls celebrations board for the glasses, clear heart gem thingys for bubbles, the block of four celebration stamp from Create and Craft...and last but not least the corners are a procraft die that my bestest bud Lou brought for me....
