Spinning Wheel Card

My first Spinning Wheel Card didn't turn out too bad.
I like a card that has purpose for a little one, something to discover.


Turning the wheel reveals a bunny, a frog, a dog and the bird you can see.

The wheel is the larger of Memory Box - Pinpoint Scalloped Circle
Ultimate Crafts - Butterfly Freedom
Card Craft DIY - Happy Birthday
Avery Elle-Ments - Count on it
Frantic Stamper - Scallop Borders

Thanks for stopping by.

60th Wedding Anniversary


Items Used:

Sue Wilson - Itty Bitty Bow
Memory Box - Delicate Blossoms
Nellie Snellen - Hearts
Frantic Stamper - With this kiss couple

We've been to a few 60th Wedding Anniversaries lately.  
How amazing in this day and age for marriages to last so long 
and also to still be both here after all those years.

They have been truly blessed.

At the Beach


Trifold Card


Stamp Set used: 
Art Impressions Beach Set Tryfolds rubber stamps
I coloured it with pencils and was happy with the affect only I'd like a heavier white card stock.  
I had to add another piece to the back of the card to strengthen it.

So I wondered how it would look if I were to 3d it on the front of a normal fold card.

This was the result:

Have a great day all.
Many blessings,  Carol









Surf's Up

I do love this stamp.

It's fun to colour and looks good on any gender card.
This one is for my son who is now teaching his son to surf.


Items used for this card:

Our Daily Bread - Sea Single
Cheery Lynn - Surf's Up

Happy Crafting everyone.

Hugs,  Carol

50th Wedding Anniversary

Hello fellow crafters, 
I do hope you are getting plenty of time to do your favourite thing.
I have a few friends celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary this year (ours is next year) so I thought I would make a card I will have an immediate use for.

I was so looking forward to using this
Marianne Design - Anja Border
It is so elegant and Bec has an excellent special on it at the moment.
I raised it off the background with double sided foam tape.
It comes in two pieces so I cut and raised the centre section by using the second die. 
I also added some tiny pearls here and there.


I thought it might look a little plain in the background so I used a background stamp
from many years ago.  Victorian Diamond Panel 485 and I embossed it with fine gold.

For the Gold at the top and bottom of my card I used Frantic Stamper - Scallop Borders
Centre pieces are:
Raised using double sided foam tape.

Elizabeth Craft - Numbers and more

Hearts are from Sue Wilson - Shadow Boxes - Mr & Mrs
Don't forget to check out Bec's specials and to enter Bizzy Bec's Anything goes Challenge.
One more to go and then I have to do a 25th Anniversary for our son. 
Where did those years go?

Happy crafting to you all.
Hugs Carol
