Sarah Kay Summer Birthday Card

I have been busy decorating and gardening for weeks so this is the first card I have done for ages. It is a birthday card for my Mum which is supposed to be of myself and my sister when we were younger, which is many years ago. I hope my mum loves it as much as I loved doing it. It was my first attempt at gathering ribbon...

Nellie and Foal - Sugar Nellie Stamp

I needed a card for a teenage girl who loves horse ridding and thought this 'Sugar Nellie' Stamp fitted the bill.  I have just bought a lacey circle spellbinders wizard die and couldn't wait to use it - wish I'd got one ages ago...

Sugar Nellie Fragile Beauty Card

I have made this card for my friend Chris' birthday.  I have had trouble listing it as my blog has been down since yesterday.  I managed to enter it into some competitions but was not able to link it to all of them due to the blog problems - sorry if this happened on your blog.  I love this stamp which I have had in my stash for ages and I have looked through some of my old papers to choose this green colour scheme.  I have had these pale blue flowers for ages and not used them but the colours go well with this card.
