My Sister Audrey's Birthday card

Morning Bloggers If you are a Chelsea Fan what a great night My brother was at the Game so he wasn't disappointed eh. My whole family are Chelsea fans from way back. Anyway that's enough of Chelsea We are the champions.
I made a card over the last couple of days for my sister who doesn't blog but it is her birthday on 23rd May this Wednesday. Used one of my favourite stamps again Stamping Bellas Uptown girls I love these new stamps of hers. Coloured her with Copics getting quite a collection now, must just say a thank you to dearest Kay Carley as she has an updated copic chart on her blog.
I have used a Cheery Lynn die Sophies Heart, what a nightmare to cut out, kept turning it around and different machines and finally got one to cut out with the Grand calibur with a shim. I have three Sizzix machines one is the Vagabond which I really didn't want to break! the other is the Pro which I thought would be too big and the Big shot and I have all the adapters for all of them and they didn't work! I used a nestability for the frame and of course Craftwork cards cardstock. The little crown is one of Craftwork cards sayings A princess for the day. The backing paper for the life of me I don't know probably a Bo  Bunny from ages ago.

Well Bloggers hope you have fantastic Sunday I'm off to get my dog and cats flea stuff.
God bless and lots of Hugs

2 Overdue cards.

Evening everyone, sorry have been awol for a couple of months, but have had health issues again. Gladly nearly over, have got a Hiatus hernia and a large fibroid. Thats the gory details over.

Over the weekend, I had one of my sisters over to make cards and she helped me get motivated again as we bounce of each other with ideas. I made a little card using Tim Holtz flower die and a martha stewart deep edge punch with backing papers from the First Edition, Isabelle paper pad. Its very simple but effective. The leaves are the Cheery Lynne Laurel leaves.

I also made a card a couple of weeks ago for my brother-in-law but didn't have time to post as always up the hospitals.
This time I used the Wine Buffs Cd, has good graphics but it could be a little bit more explanatory on how you can put things together. Lucky for me I also bought the rubber stamps to go with it. I made a stepper card, with the downloadable paper. Used my copics, slowly getting better.
Well I do hope you have a lovely evening, cannot get over this weather. We have had all sorts today hail stones, rain, and the sun coming out.
ps. I saw the Queen today, she was going up the Upper Richmond Road East Sheen going to Richmond Park to White Gate Lodge to the Ballet school. She looks so fragile. Cannot wait to celebrate her Jubilee Party.
Night all. God bless keep safe Hugs
