A Birthday Card For A Horse Lover

I have just cleaned my car as a very dear friend complained about how dirty it was. Sorry peeps but it is guaranteed to rain now. So now i can chauffer my friend around in a nice clean car.

Anyway i was askes to make a birthday card for a horse lover and this is what i came up with.

I dug out my Joanna Sheen CD and found these really cute horses. The backing paper is from the CD too. The flowers are from wild orchid crafts, the cream twine is from the ribbon girls. I also used a Martha Stewart punch.


I also decided to make a matching book mark which is also from the CD, which i laminated, punched a whole in the top to add the tassel. I made a pocket to sit inside the card for the book mark to fit in.IMG_0824

Have a lovely day.

Crafters Companion monthly challenge-Christmas wishes

I had a fabulous surprise this week when i received an e-mail from Leanne asking me to join the Crafters Companion Design Team.  I have always loved crafting with Crafters Companion products, especially CDs and Stamps. And now of course the delicious Spectrum Noirs.  So of course it didn’t take me 2 seconds to reply and say i would love to join.

So this is my first creation as a DT member. This sweet popcorn pop up card is for the Crafters Companion monthly challenge Blog.




The card idea came from the Popcorn the Bear Christmas collection CDs, where there is a whole disc full of projects which are Fab. The image was from the same CD, on the project CD you can also print out all the images and toppers you need or you can look on the other 2 discs to choose different images. The Poinsettia's are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon is just what i found from last year. I really enjoyed making this pop up card and i adore the popcorn image.
