Anniversary Card

 Someone wanted a card in a hurry so I grabbed some bits and pieces I had already cut and laid aside.
They can always come in handy.

For this card I placed the card on an angle on the score board and scored for the seen affect.

Marianne Design - Flower Doily
Spellbinders - Circles
Poppy Crafts - Numbers
Sue Wilson - Itty Bitty Bow
Memory Box - Delicate Blossoms

Check out Bizzy Bec's Store for very reasonably priced items.
If Bec has the brand and not the item please email her and ask if Bec can still order it for you.

Have a great weekend,

Wedding Cards

A friend and I sell cards at church to give all the proceeds to Missions .
Unfortunately we found people warmed to the price of $2 a card 
so we keep them as nice and as simple as possible.

Items used:

Poppy Crafts - Ornate Flourish Border
Dee's Distinctively Dies - With Love
Nellie Snellen Dies - Heart
I heat embossed the gold onto "Love".

This card was made with the same tools

Have a great day everyone, please let me know you stopped by.

The Drummer

Hi All,
Our grandson plays the drums so I thought I would make a card featuring drums.

The background was done with water pencils.

Drums and drummer I had to be creative and used the computer to join digi stamps 
and a Crazy dog stamp by Tim Holtz.

Music Notes - Memory Box - Virtuoso Music
Words - PoppyCrafts - Happy Birthday

The work was worth it as he had a chuckle when he saw the unexpected pop up.

Have a crafty day peoples.

Hugs Carol
