I decided to do something a little different from what I normally do, this card I made for a friend for her birthday today, I Die cut the Bird cage Die which belongs to a friend, I had been looking through my hobbydols books and found this pattern which I thought would go well with the bird cage, the pattern is from the Hobbydol book No93 by Chrissie, I embossed a sheet of white pearlescent cardstock using a Die'sire Embossalicious Regency Frame 8x8 embossing folder NoEF8-RGFRAME then cut it down to the start of the pattern, I then stitched the pattern onto the card using my Guttermann Sulky threads No's 1128 and 1222, after finishing the stitching I added the Rice beads then added the birdcage, I then Die cut the bird Die using my Cheery Lyn Hummingbird Die No B193, after assembling the card I felt it needed something else so I Die Cut my Spellbinders Die D-Lites Fantastic flourish Two Die and added them to the corners, it was by chance that I found I had the right coloured pearls to add to the card, I finished it off by Die cutting the letters using my Die Versions Micro font. I hope you like my card.

I love this new Stitching pattern from Ann's paper Art so much, I have stitched it three times now, here are two of the cards that I have finished using this pattern, it is pattern No a106. The First card I have used the Free papers and topper from the Creative Cardmaking magazine issue No 53, the papers and toppers are so beautiful, the colours are beautiful, the second card I have used my Spellbinders Gold Corner Dies to finish the card, I hope you like my cards.
On Ann's paper Art forum, some of the members exchange cards each month, we don't know each month who we will be getting a card from, it's a lovely surprise when a card drops through the letterbox, we get so many beautiful creations to keep forever, this month I sent my Echange card to Ann from Ann's paper Art, I stitched pattern No a105. I have to admit, I loved making this card for Ann, I hope you like it too.
I made this for a friend at my craft group, I have stitched Ann's Pattern Noa671, it's such a beautiful pattern to stitch, I know that Barbara likes oranges and browns so I stitched in these colours, once again I have used the Spellbinders heartfelt creations Delicate Asters Die, It fits well with this pattern.
This is a birthday card I stitched using a pattern from a Hobbydol book, I can't remember which one it was, sorry, the card was made for a lady at my Friday Craft group, I love the Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations delicate Asters Dies, so used it for this card, I have also used my Spellbinders Gold Corner Dies.

I embossed the card using a Embossalicious Die'sire embossing folder No EF8-RGFRAME.

As I said previously, i really struggle with mens cards and this time I wanted to do something different for my Uncle, to be honest, I usually make him a card with golf on it, but was determined this time it wouldn't have anything to do with golf, I bought the poster with these images on them and they have been sitting in my folder for a while, i also had the die cut sheet, so thought it would make a nice change to do this one for him, I stitched apa pattern No a670, I really like this pattern, i stitched it all in shades of brown to compliment the bear, I really love the finish.
