Summer flowers

This card was made a a leaving card for the secretary at my children’s school. She was retiring due to ill health so I kept the sentiment quite generic.

Get well

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in Heaven and in Earth.

Matthew 28:18

Today’s card is made using a couple of sheets from a Hunkydory boys collection. I love this idea of cards showing ‘under the weather’ for get well and this is ideal for almost everyone.

Hello, here is a quick reminder of the Creative Moments Challenge which started yesterday.  This is a lovely image is from Stitchy Bears and is ideal for friends suffering with alopecia or illness.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers called Parisian Dreams, which came free with a magazine earlier in the year.

I hope you agree that the digital card is really effective.

Forever Friends card and gift box

Looking through this weekend’s challenges I got the idea for this card.  I needed to make a card for my friend’s birthday and had no idea what to buy as a small gift. IMAG2253-1 IMAG2248-1 I am currently using up old stash and this is from Docrafts’ Forever Friends Black and Gold kit.  I made the decoupage card first, and added some Papermania flowers.

I had the box with some socks in for Christmas and never like to bin a sturdy box so covered all the logos and writing and decorated it to match the card.  I filled the box with truffles in paper cases.  I loved the outcome of this project – hope you do too!

The project is to be entered into the following challenges:
