Humming Bird

Hi Everyone, a card I made for 2 challenges, The Outlawz Sketch challenge and the Outlawz Progressive challenge.

Everything that could go wrong with this card did, even the digi colouring didn't go to plan, then put it altogether - twice, had it all OK, glued it together the 3rd time, put it to one side and found I hadn't added the ribbon, that was just to my side Grrrrrr. Oh! well in the end I am pleased with it, even with no ribbon. NO I am NOT doing it again with the ribbon! LOL

all layered onto black paper.


Spring has sprung in the garden with all the trees in leaf and the shrubs in flower, all so beautiful. The sky was grey and threatening and it was VERY chilly, but it still looked lovely, I think! Hope you won't be bored.

You can even the oak is in leaf, left, behind the garden

60th birthday card

Hi Everyone, firstly I have to say thank you to my new followers, my apologies for not greeting you before, but I haven't as many followers as some of you, so never look at the numbers - head hanging in shame! I hope you enjoy your visits here and I keep you interested, a GREAT BIG WELCOME for joining me.

My card was for my Niece, who visited on her birthday weekend, she lives 4 hours or more from us, so thankfully I didn't have to post the card and box I made for it. I wanted to add lime green somehow as she loves the colour, this was the nearest green, she liked it, so that was OK.

She is the Mother of the daughter who is adding to the family, card here. the news conveyed to her in a box, on a parchment roll, in a restaurant and her reaction filmed, by the soon to be Mum. She looked at the parchment in her hand, looked at her daughter then screamed, lovely to see, but embarressing for her daughter who kept saying shhhh Mum. LOL. She said she couldn't have had a better present.

Apart from the insert, the card was done without the need for a 'puter! SO different for me LOL.

Paper was in a paper pad bought from The Range
I used 1 sheet of the double sided 12 x 12 for the 8 x 8 card
