I've been enjoying using the paper piecing technique with digistamps from to achieve a different look and effect.
I've also made a video tutorial for doing this if anyone is interested.  
Here is the link.

Reflections and an Anniversary Card

 Another couple of cards made recently.
The first is for Mother and Father in law for their Anniversary this weekend. I wouldn't do anything too romantic for them, so this is just a little different.
The second was Mike's birthday card which I also entered into our forum challenge....and won!
I love trees in any form or fashion and especially love what Barbara Gray does with them on Clarity stamping.
That's all for today and I'm amazed that I've posted so many. Who knows, I may even put up another one tomorrow.

Wedding Cards.

Two posts in one day! Don't get used to it though, it won't happen that often :). I had two wedding cards to make for a customer, and here they are. The Book a Easel card is for their daughter's wedding in September and is much larger than it looks in the picture. The other one is for close friends of theirs.

Baby Cards - my favourite to make

I think that baby cards have to be the ones I prefer to make most of all. Even more so when they are for our first grandchild. All I have to hope now is that they don't decide to change her name, as I will be busy making even more.
I've decided that if they do change their minds, I will add these to the digital scrapbook that I'm going to make, so then she will know what she may have been called.

I don't think there will be a change of mind though as Daddy has already put her name on the nursery wall, so changing that could be quite tricky.
We have also seen a 3D scan of her and I'm amazed at what technology allows us to see, she is so like her Daddy! Even great Grandma thought so when she saw it.
Anyway, with all the images I've been collecting over the last 9 months, I am still making cards for her although the special one with all details on it, will have to wait until she arrives.

Side step card

I've had to give myself a good talking to as I haven't been making nearly enough cards of late. This has been mainly due to watching over our new baby forum, and a trip to the UK to spend some time with my Mum. However, with lots of special dates looming, it was lovely to sit and and make a few cards and remind myself that I do actually enjoy doing it.
I think this one is self explanatory.
