Uncle's Birthday Card

 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.

Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for a friend, thepattern is a new one from Ann's paper Art, the No is apa a671, I really love this pattern, I Die cut the Aster flower from a Spellbinders Heartfelt creations Delicate Aster Die, I hope you like my card.

Sympathy Card

Unfortunately my neighbour passed away a couple od weeks ago, I made this card for his wife, my friend, it was a hard card for me to make, I used a pattern by Erica Fortgens for this card.

Exchange Card

This is the exchange card i made for Marjolijn on Ann's Forum I stitched pattern No a228, I know that Marjolijn likes her dogs so thought the image would be perfect for her.

Little Girl

I really love this pattern  so I stitched it twice so far, it is apa pattern No a732, I chose to stitch it all in shades of purple on the first one,I have used a Nellie Multi Frame Die, No, MFD031 2 Corners 2. and the second one in shades of pink.

Exchange Card

On Ann's forum we Exchange cards every month, we send one card to another member, this card was made for Sonni, I used apa pattern No a718, I hope you like my card.

18Th Birthday Card

I'm not a lover of making Mens cards, I really seem to struggle with them, this card was made for my neighbours grandson, I used apa pattern No a279.

Pink Card

I like this image so much that  that I decided to make a pink card, I love the pattern, it's apa No a673, I think I will use this one a lot, I have Die cut the edges of the card which I think really compliments the finish.

Valentine's Card

This card was made with apa pattern No a036, I love this pattern and felt the little forever Friends Bear was perfect for it.

Sophia's Birthday Card.

I made this card for Sophia for her birthday, I used apa pattern No's A732 and a655, It was a real treat to make this card for Sophia, both p[atterns work together really well.
