How I love the images from this Joanna Sheen cd. Two more cards, again using the same topper, this time using a different backing sheet (from the cd) and red mirri silk and gold mirri silk, each topped off with an organza ribbon. Nice summery birthday cards.

Yet another image from Joanna Sheens Cardmakers Year. I used the same topper but different backing papers, this image is so versatile. I cut off half of the front of the card and mounted the topper onto mirri card so that it is used as the opener,. Under the topper is a tag with Happy Birthday. Three little gemstones in matching colours finish off the card.
What was I doing 10 years ago?

Sorry its been a long time since I have been on here. Life just has a tendancy to get very hectic every now and again. Sometimes my body lets me know I have been doing too much and I just have to have a bit of a quiet spell for a while. Anyway I AM BACK!!!!!
Not the best of scans, but hopefully you can see it ok. I used topper from JS Cardmakers Year cd and roses vellum with some pink pearlescent card put through a cuttlebug folder.

Well I just can't believe that I haven't managed to Blog for such a long time. Made these cards this morning, my niece wanted to send some thank you cards for her 21st birthday gifts received and asked me to make her some. I love this image, it s a paper nation stamp coloured with water colours. The background papers are all from a DCWV mini stack.
The letters are actually gold mirri card, they just don't show up so well in a scan.

Thank you so much to Rainbow Lady for giving me this award. I feel very proud, as I am very new to Blogging. There are some rules attached to this and before I pass it to my chosen 5 blogs, I would ask you to bear with me whilst I sort myself out. Here is a link to the Arte y Pico blog. http://arteypico.blogspot.com/

I made this for the bookmark challenge set by Rainbow lady for her weekly challenge.
I used pearlescent card, stamped and embossed a swirl pattern in the top right hand corner and embellished with a couple of self adhesive stones. The image is Sugar Nellie with a flowersoft scarf. All topped off with a very precious tassle!
