Black & White Birthday Card

It seems ages since I've had an desire to make a card, but I think I have realised why I lost my mojo. I've always done quiet simple cards and always stuck with the less is more moto!!! I think with all the fantastic blogs around and the talented card makers I started to doubt how good my own cards were against their creations. Decided to go back to my old style, they might not be the most imagitive cards, but the ones that I enjoy making the most.

Anyway I had this image from Hans and I just love it, so decided to make a girlie card with it.

18th Birthday Card

Decided to use my new Bella stamp that I got from Tracey at Dies to Die For, that is so cute.

Christening card

My brother asked if I could make a christening card for one of the girls he works with, using a picture of the twins. She wanted a large A5 card and the little girls names on it and this is what I came up with.

Hoping this is the start of more crafting! Things at home are a bit mad and crafting is just the last thing on my mind at the moment. Hopefully I can reveal all soon and things will calm down
