This picture has worked better (dunno why I did exactly the same)
This is a card that I am sending to Kay & Alfie at Indigblu to say thank you for my lovely lady.
I was very lucky and won this stamp when I entered Kay's random act of kindness  over on FB .
I used a raspberry Adirondak and brayered the background around the edges and left it lighter in the middle added some script and some of the ladies hair with the same inkpad.

I originally made the centre square and had black bits of her hair around the edge but at the very last one I smudge it. ( I will not repeat on here what I said....air was blue) so to salvage I used a spellbinder and cut her out and mounted onto black. where there is a will there is a way LOL.

80th birthday Card

First of all I would like to say sorry about these pictures. I have put them through Serif first to add my signature but I think I have done something not quite right as the pictures are now small ( I will have to play a little more methinks)
Anyhoo I have used some Kanban stamps that I have they are all cogs and great for man cards I also have another sheet of clock bits and both sets work well together.  I used flitterglue and guilding flakes.  I did a round sentiment and added the 80 in the centre and mounted on a spellbinder shape, added 3 coin "buttons" .
I used my Clarity letter set to make for you brother down the sides.

Little boy Blue

I made a frame card for this New Baby Boy card with blue pearl card.  I added  a die cut pram and printed some words on plain white pearl and then cut them out with a die cut shape.
 I used the Clarity letter set for the words.  The ribbon shows better on the lid than the box as this picture is rubbish.... David  Bailey I am not.

Anyway wishing you all the best for the New Year and hopefully I will be back on here soon.  Don't know when  depends when I get my crafty stuff back out and my youngest daughter has landed herself a new job in Gibraltar so she is off on the 4th January - I am really going to miss her.

Happy Birthday Ethel

 Hello there not been on here for a long time!! Naughty Naughty Blogger

Not feeling over bright today and not got my crafty stuff back out yet after tidying it up for Christmas and I was just on my lappy doing some admin and found a couple of cards that I haven't blogged so I thought I would post them both whilst I was here.

I hope you have all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.  I got some fab crafty stuff amongst my pressies and pennies to spend too!!

I did this card for a commission a birthday card for a lady in her eighties had to be pink and have flowers,  I have a pad of really nice heavyweight paper/card so I used a piece for the background the nice lace ribbon was in my stash I got it from the haberdashery stall in the local market.  I used pearl white card stock distressed with antique velvet distress ink. The flowers were made from some more of the patterned paper.
