Radley Replicant

I was asked to make a card for a good friends wife who collects Radley bags. He wanted it in the shape of a bag with compartments, so this is what I came up with ....
The Front

The Back, I placed a secret message in the doggies mouth, I got the idea for a secret message from the on-line mag 'Time for Crafting' issue 11 http://www.timeforcrafting.co.uk/log-in.html

This issue has some great idea's for giving your cards the WOW factor!!

Made this for my daughters 3rd anniversary, used leather hearts on the front. Love this fold!!


Made this for my mother, her favorite colours. Saw the oragami butterfly done on
U-Tube. Made matching bookmark.





Favorite Cards

So, I thought it was time I posted some of my favorite cards I've made so far.

This was my first go at stamping and embossing. I just loved it!!!





I loved using distressed inks with this card, gives such a great effect, think it has to be my favorite technique so far!!




My first go at stitching on card, what fun.



More stitching.



I love this fold, saw it done on 'Create & Craft'.

Jigsaw Charm Swap

Well it's been a busy few months, so I think it's time to show you the results of the 'Jigsaw Charm' swap I took part in with the ladies from the 'Time for Crafting' forum.

The challenge was to change 8 pieces of small jigsaw puzzle to be used on a bracelet. I had such good fun doing this challenge and I learned alot.


Here is a few I made.






Thes are the ones I received, aren't they just beautiful!!
