Penny's Birthday Card

I made this card yesterday in bit of a hurry as i only found out on Tuesday afternoon that it was Penny's birthday on Wednesday,  so it was a little late, but better late than never. The pattern is from the Hobbydols book No 41 by Betty de groote-greven, i love this butterfly and have stitched it in an orange and gold thread and added a few gems, i used my new double rounder corner punch that i bought from and added some  border peel-offs to finish.

Calender No 6, 2011

I stitched this pattern a couple of weeks ago but had nothing small enough to put in the centre, then i searched through my crafty things and found some magic rub on's, so i glittered one and added it to the centre and made it into a calender, the pattern is Ann's paper art No a606.

Ratiny in Cupcake

I found a digistamp blog and fell in love with the cupcakes digi stamps, so i sent a message to the artist and asked her permission to use her cupcake digi stamps to embroider, i was thrilled to bits when she said yes,  these are the two cards that i have created from the one image, i decided to use the googly eyes on the rat, and also used gems for the sprinkles, it didn't take very long for me to work out how to stitch these images and i am very pleased with the results.

This is a very beautiful pattern from Ann's Paper Art, pattern No a607, i enjoyed stitching this and it didn't take very long, the decoupage i decided to split and add the final three layers to the corner, i have also added Card Candy from craftwork cards to the three corners to finish.
