I was asked by my hubby to make a music/guitar themed card for a lady he works with for her boyfriends 60th birthday. I mounted a strip of brown card down the centre of a cream square card. I then mounted a vellum sheet if music notes onto cream card with brown brads and added onto the brown card. I cut out a Ellison thin cut guitar and mounted this onto the velum square and added his name above and 6o below. I added happy birthday peel offs and brown musical notes cut with the small sizzix die.
Had this sheet of vellum rectangles for ages, which I had been given and never known what to do, but I'm really pleased with how this has turned out. Just hope Brian is :o)
I covered the bottom of an A5 card with Doodlebug paper and added ribbon to the top. I then cut out the champagne bottle and cork from silver and gold mirri card and added wire to the top of the bottle. I curved a couple of congratulation peel offs along the wire and added some silver stars. I added her name to the ribbon and some papermania jewels, 21 cut using my Sizzix Block Party alphabet and a happy birthday peel off.

Not sure who to give it to, but at least the little couple won't get bashed anymore on my craft desk :o)
Used embellishments and small stamped images to make them and I've included a small selection of what I've done. Kept to tall thin and C6 size, as the smaller embellishments didn't look lost on them. Just hope he likes them when I take them in next week.

Was hoping to play with my Nestabilities dies as well last night, but my Sizzix Texturz kit hasn't arrived, so I will have to keep my fingers crossed it arrives tomorrow.
My first card I have mounted paper from Pink Petticoat onto blue card and mounted across the middle of the card. The Penny Black image I got from Natty K and I have coloured him with Marvy Le Plume pens and added stickles to his scarf and snow. Finished off with a peel off coloured blue.
I covered this DL card with some embossed paper that I had from a Crafty Bitz QVC TSV from about 2 years ago!!!! The image I received from Julie and this was coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles added. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

Hubby has also been speaking about Christmas pressies and wanted to know if I still wanted a Cricut. Really can't decide whether to get the Expression or the smaller machine. I only really do the cards, but I know that I will wish I had gone with the bigger machine. Any help deciding gratefully appreciated.
The first one I covered the bottom of the cards with paper from Pink Petticoat. Mr & Mrs Frosty coloured in with Marvy Le Plume pens and finished with a few snowflakes.
This paper came free in a magazine and I used the same layout as the purple trees as I really like it. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and Tree stamps is a woodware set.

I decided to do a disney inspired princess using my Sizzix doll dies and I'm really pleased with how she has come out. So glad that I managed to get all the doll dies, as I have used them for a lot of character cards for kids and there really is so much you can do with them.

First one I used my new Quickutz candle die and added holly at the base, I mounted this onto cream card and a red scalloped circle. Covered a square card with paper from last years DCWV Christmas stack and added DCWV ribbon across the centre of the card. Mounted a Seasons Greetings peel off to finish the card.
This card I have used a Anita's peel off Christmas pudding with holly on top. I've coloured the waste and then added to the peel off. Mounted this onto red card and put an eyelet and ribbon at the top. Mounted holly paper onto red card and added this across the middle of the card. Peel off greeting at the bottom that has been coloured red.
I used paper from my partners pack to cover a square card and then added some spotty blue chiffon ribbon across the card. I then stamped up Penny Black Little Snowy and coloured him using Marvy Le Plume pens and added stickles to make him frosty! Mounted ont blue scalloped circle and a small circle with a greeting added to the bottom right hand side.

Paper is from Partners and I have added Anita's sticky ribbon to cover join. Mr Frosty is coloured using Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles added and the sentiment is an Anita's peel off coloured purple. This is using the last of this paper, I got it last year and I don't know who it is by but I love it. Mr & Mrs Frosty are coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles glitter added. Sentiment is Curly Girly from Pink Petticoat.
Also thanks to Sue for the images, can't wait to finish Christmas cards so I can have a play. Can you please leave me a comment with your e-mail (I won't publish it) as I want to send you something back!!!
Off to bed, as I haven't seen hubby all night as Mr Frosty is now the man for me. I have more coloured up, just haven't had the time to make any more cards. Doesn't working for a living get in the way of the crafting :o)

Nice simple one, paper is from Dovecraft, finished with a strip of red card and santa is an embellishment from last year mounted onto white and red card.
Good old Lola, I printed off this from the Lola Occassion CD and watercoloured her using my Marvy Le Plume pens. The card is embossed using the snowflake folder from Cuttlebug and the sentiment is Curly Girly from Pink Petticoat

This card layout was inspired by one on Natty K's blog, the paper is from my new DCWV Christmas stack and ribbon I got from my local craft shop. The Carolling Duck has been watercoloured using Marvy Le Plume pens and stickles added to his hat. I have embossed the blue card using my snowflakes folder, the silver padded snowflakes are from Mei Flower and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat.
This card I have used an image that I got from Jules at Juliesjapes and I have coloured in with H2O's, although I am not that happy with this to be honest. Never seem to get that good a result when I use them!!! I have added stickles to the tinsel round the tree. The paper was from Partners, ribbon is Anita's sticky ribbon and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat.

Also have just bought a lovely kit of pink ribbons and she is donating £1 from each one sold to Breast Cancer, check it out at http://www.littlesilverhat.co.uk/display.php?display=ALL&type=collections under ribbon kits.
Also hoping that Mr Frosty will be waiting for me when I get home tonight and I also received some stamped imaged from Julie at Juliejapes so I can have a play with them - thanks Julie.
Just hope I get a chance, as we are having all our doors replaced internally and I need to sand down the door frames upstairs and repaint them before my friends boyfriend does it for us. Might have to have a play tonight and hope Hubby doesn't complain that it's Friday night and we should do something together :o)
