Free birthday card

Here is a card made from freebies apart from the card blank, even the ribbon was a trim on a gift that held the tag. Ironic that I spent so much money on crafty stash then repeatedly use free papers to make my cards!!

Hope you like it – I’d be delighted to read your comments.

Scrappers Delights – Baby Boos bloghop

Today sees the launch of Baby Boos at Scrapper’s Delights!  Here is my card, made with one of the fabulous new releases. The papers are from Nitwits and came free with a magazine last year – must use up my stash – I printed out the sentiment myself and although this digi could be used for many occasions, I had to make it an Easter card, and will save it carefully for next year.

Creative Moments DT card – Easter Bunny

Here is this fortnight’s cards for Creative Moments.  I know that Easter has gone but it does come around every year!

This is such a cute digi from QKR and was coloured using Promarkers and Flexmarkers and assembled with some lovely fre papers from a magazine.  The daises were coloured using chalks to match the design.   A Papermania bow is used as a final trim.

Wishing you a magical day

This card is for a very special little girl but let’s be honest, there are not many young ladies who wouldn’t love this fairy card.  The colours are fabulously spring-themed and both the free papers and Cordinations mats have been distressed around the edges.  The little girl is a die cut but was trimmed to remove the white surround that she popped out with.
