Morning all,

Ok so where do i start. Ok sorry for not posting in a while, its been a very busy few months. We flew down to Melbourne for a 18th Celebration (and and 40 wedding anniversary celebration) and to see our beautiful little neice. I also have just come back from a few days in Brisbane at the Craft show there and doing the Intermediate Copic Class with a fantastic teacher Mandi. Had a great time. Ok so here we go a few posts for today.
The first one is a few mothers day cards and a birthday card for my mum whose birthday falls around the same time.
The stamps are from all that scraps and lala land.
Enjoy

Afternoon All,

So i thought before i start to upload the mountains of Xmas photo's i would upload a few more "other" cards first.
The first is a Birthday card for someone at work that just turned 21! Oh how i remember that age :)
Anyway i stuck the numbers on and then relised i didn't like it 100% this way so i took them off and mounted them on a circle sheet. I found these in spotlight and i LOVE them. Not sure i should have put it on but its there now.
 
 
Hi

Well Matt's son is 17 tomorrow - how time flies. I can't believe in just 12 short months he will be 18. Anyway as he has a half naked women on his phone I thought if you can't beat 'em join 'em. When i saw this image months ago from kenny K I knew it was perfect and exactly what i wanted to use. Lauren helped with the lettering and whats a card without an amazing cake from Lauren
Enjoy.

The bosses birthday was yesterday and he turned the big 55 and he was back from a week's leave today so i thought i would make him a card - its hard to come back to work on a Monday let alone having a week off hehehehehe. He loves surfing and going to the beach so when i found this chipboard image it was purfect!

The chipbord image is from 2 crafty and you can purchase them here

I then used KindyGlitz on the car and surfboard and paper glaze on the wheels.
Papers, Brads etc were just stuff i had in my stash.
I was pretty happy with the end result as this is the first time i have used chipboard alone! :)

I normally make cards as I need them but with the birthday on the weekend I made 2 cards. So this one will become part of the stash (or if i ever get around to making a set of them and giving them away then one of those..).
The stamp is from Wild Rose Studio (another stamp I have bought and not a digital image!) :)
Paper and brads are just what I had in my stash.

Better late than never! I had a friends birthday on Sunday but completly forgot until someone mentioned it on the Thursday. I was going to drop this in her letterbox on Sunday but i was to tired.. i sent the card today so this way her Birthday will last just that little bit longer.
Stamps are Magnolia (I do use real stamps sometimes!)
paper is from a Birthday paper stack i picked up at Big W. Ribbon and brads are just what i had in my "stash"

I had forgotten that Matt's dad's birthday was on Saturday. I knew it was in March just not so close! I only had a short time to do this card but here it is.
I used another image from Karen's Doodles

BTW - sorry about the photo quality - As I was taking the photo in a different location, I just couldn't find a spot to take the photo where i didn't get that shadow.

Hi All,

Hope  you are all travelling well.  I am back from my wonderful week in Melbourne,  I really love a challenge and leaving things till the last minute is what i do best!
Here is the card i created for someone at Work, it is totally them, they love their bling, cloths and shoes!

The stamp is a Kraftin Kimmie stamp. I have about 20 or so of her stamps and have yet to use one on a card till now - i am so happy that i have finally used her stamp as i love her work!
The image is coloured in with Copic's, the card stock and ribbon is just what i had lying around. The sparkley background circle is just Acetate with Lots of Kindy Glitz. I love the effect so might try it again.

Feel free to leave any comments or Questions.

Have a fantastic Day

Enjoy

Lara
