Birthday Card

For my dear friends birthday I chose to stitch Karin's Creations Pattern No KC 176, I put a lot of thought and love into making this card for such a special friend, I knew that she likes these colours so chose the deep red and orange, the threads are Gutermann Sulky Rayon 40, No's 1263 Deep red, 567 Gold, 630 Green and 568 Deep orange, I have also used my Marianne Design Creatables Border Stencil No LRO396 and my Marianne Design Craftables Butterfly Stencil No CR1354, I added a few red pearls and some hobbydots then the happy birthday peel off  to finish this card. My only regret was I had to post it so didn't get to see her face when she opened it, but I do know that she loves it.

Father Of The Bride

My Aunt was looking for a card to give to her son for his daughters wedding, but nowhere in the shops did they have a Father Of The Bride card, so I made this card for her. I have stitched Ann's Paper Art Pattern No a721, I chose Black and Gold as the theme.

Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for my Uncle, he used to drive trailers although they were flat back ones this pattern seemed to fit the bill nicely, the pattern is from Stitching Cards and I used peel-off letters for his name which I coloured with a black pro marker pen, I have also used Sue Wilson's Mini Striplet Intertwining Circles Die.

It's good to have something especially for the men for a change, for this card I have combined it with papers from my stash and some card candy.

Friendship Card

I made this friendship card for my dear friend Frances, the pattern is from a Hobbydol book by Chrissie, I can't remember the number of the book, I have combined it with a Marianne Design Creatables Die No LRO396 and also stamped the Message using Crafters Companion Sara Davies Signature Collection Stamps English Country Garden. I enjoyed creating this card.
