Birthday Elephant

Morning All,

This card is for my husband, it is his 32nd Birthday today.

I got this stamp for Christmas and as soon as I seen it it reminded me off my husband so much, he hates wearing ties and every time he has to put one on it all ends up in a muddle pretty much like this poor little elephant.
The Stamp is from Crafters Companion, Humphrey's Corner range. I have matted and layered it using various papers, and  using a new set of Nestabilites, if my memory is correct I believe they are Labels 17.

Birthday Celebrations

Afternoon All,

Here is a card I made between Christmas and New Year for my brothers Girlfriend.

The card is made using lots of new items I got for Christmas, one being the lovely Stamp from SWALK by Crafters Companion.
I coloured in the images using Spectrum Noirs again from Crafters Companion.
The backing paper is one from my stash so I am not sure where that come from. The flowers are from various places. The sentiment "You Deserve a treat" is of the same stamp set from Crafters Companion I have finished the sentiment with a corner rounder and two gem flowers.

I have submitted this card to the two following blogs

Lady Bug Crafts - Use Your Stash
My Mums Craft Shop  - Something new (or use your stash)

New Camera

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know that please be gentle with me with regards to the photos, my lovely hubby got me a new camera for Christmas, and I am just getting to grips with it, the camera is all technical with loads of different options on it, so please be gentle and hopefully the more I use it the better the pics will be.
