I made this card for my Great Niece's 4th birthday,I chose Anns Paper Art pattern No a0702 because when I visited her a few months ago I gave both her and her sister a teddy bear, I have stitched the pattern in a bright pink and green and then used a Memory Box buckle die, and a few gems to finish.

I have to admit, this is another pattern I really did enjoy srtitching, it is another of Ann's beautiful patterns the No is a341. It is all stitched in Black and Gold threads, and I have used Black and Gold mirri card, I mounted it onto a Gold and white fibre paper, this is a 8x8 card, made for sandy's 65th birthday.
I chose to stitch this pattern in pastel colours, and i really am pleased that i did, the Tatty teddy fits just perfect in the centre, and the blues work really well with it, The pattern is APA No, a628, i really do like this pattern, it's easy to stitch and looks so lovely when finished, I decided to give this to my Sister for her Birthday.

I made this card for Ann from Ann's paper art, I used a fibre paper to back this card with, I really do like the result and will use it again, it was a pleasure making this special card. I was very happy to be able to give it to Ann myself, I can't thank Ann enough for coming to England and meeting the girls from my craft group.

I was asked to make this special 70th Birthday Card for a friend of my sister, for her Mum's birthday, next month. I have used the background pattern from the book, Eindeloos borduren op papier en 3D, by Joke de Vette, the pattern on the sides of the design are from the book Buitengewoon borderen op papier en 3d also by Joke de Vette, I have added the Angel decoupage and also added a little glitter to it, I then added a few small gems and the peel offs to finish, it is stitched onto white linen card, mouted onto gold mirri card and then onto cream cardstock, this is the largest card I have made so far being bigger than an A5 card.

The pattern for this card is from the Hobbyjournaal 76, the pattern No is a2050 and has the Hobbydots used on it, I am not a lover of the hobbydots, but they do look really lovely on a card and work extremely well with the pattern, I have added some punched out butterflies and decided to add a border with the hobbydots lines, the image is from an 8x8 Fizzy Moon decoupage pad called Celebrations.

Well what can i say, it's been a while since i made a card, but we have been very busy with redecorating our lounge, we still have a few finishing touches to make, and my craft cupboard needs to be finished, then i can get back to what i love, my stitching. At the moment most of my craft things are still in boxes, so I'm trying to work with what i have at hand, so when i ordered my HJ 75 this is the first pattern i chose to stitch, it is Ann's pattern and i love it, this is going to be stitched quite a lot, it looks good enough to eat and as a cupcake lover it was the perfect pattern for me. I have used my 6x6 Dovecraft cupcake papers as the backing, then i die cut the stitched pattern and inked around the edges and added some gold hobbydots to the strawberry, then added some card candy in the chocolate and marshmallow colours to the corners.

I have to admit, this is a beautiful pattern again by Ann's paper art, the pattern No is a2045, I really loved making this card, I used a Marriane design die for the centre image and added a few gems for the necklace, the stitching is done with a beautiful black and gold thread that I bought at Olympia Stitch and Craft Show, I think the Hobbydots really set the pattern Off well, I also added some gems to the corners of the card, then mounted it onto gold glitter paper and then black pearlescent card.

I love the rose pattern that Ann has created, it is APA pattern NO a726, I stitched onto K & Co paper, using a cream thread and a green for the stem and leaves, I really wished i had stuck to the cream thread for the whole pattern, I think it would have looked a lot better, but i still like the card i have made, I mounted it onto cream glitter paper and then onto pale pink card, this is a pattern that i know i will use a lot..

This is the easel card i have made for the contest with the free pattern on Ann's paper art forum, the pattern No is a618. I have really enjoyed stitching this pattern, I decided to take the pattern apart to stitch in the corners. I love the Forever Friends products, so used the heart backing papers and decoupage, some pink glitter paper then added a few pink heart gems and a message to finish.
