I made this 6 inch card using a pretty oval frame that was given to me by my sister. I used a Cheery Lynn flourish in the centre. The flowers were made with a woodware punch which have been inked with Versa Magic chalk ink in Pixie Dust. I added pearls to the frame and also in the centre of the flowers. TFL xx
As i have got a day off work today i decided to have a quick play in my craft room before i start on the dreaded housework. I used a 6 inch card blank, Papermania capsule collection paper , and a selection of die cuts. I inked the edges with Versamagic Pixie Dust ink, it's such a pretty colour. The flower is by Prima, which matches the paper perfectly. I finished off with a couple of stick pins and pearls. Hope you like it. TFL xx
Another really quick card, this time using a fab digi available free from beccysplace. I printed the digi and stuck it to a strip of American card-stock in lilac. I coloured the flower with a promarker to match, a few scored lines and pearls were added to finish. Very simple but i really like it. TFL xx
Another card that i have made from scraps , using bits and pieces from my scrap box. I used a 6 inch card blank. The backing paper is some old Craftwork Card paper that i have had for years. The sentiment is computer generated. I embossed some lines using my Hougie Board . I added 3 red stars to add a bit of colour which were cut using an old sizzix die. Three black crystals were added to the centre of the stars to finish. Simples. TFL xx
After a few "Busy" cards that i have recently made, I thought i would get back in my comfort zone . I made these 2 simple cards from pieces of card and paper from my scrap box. The flowers were cut using woodware punch. I added white pearls to the centre of the flowers to finish.
Now a question "" which do you prefer? The busy cards that i have recently made, or the really simple ones like these. "" TFL xx
Sorry for the awful photo's. I tried several times but they were all naff. lol
I've been having a play and this is the result. I used a 6 inch browny green card blank, to which i matted some stamping up paper, then a square of cream card which was punched using a Martha Stewart set. I made the rosette by scoring a 12 " strip of paper at 1cm intervals then concertinaing it, joined the ends to form the rosette. I used a large rose from my stash. I used some die cut leaves given to me which i inked with Tim Holtz old paper distress ink. I punch a couple of butterflies and added some glitter to make them twinkle. The card was finished off with a few pearls. Hope you like it. TFL xx
I live in Kent, and have been making cards for about 8 years. I have 2 gorgeous grandsons, Louis who is 9 and Fray is 4. My grandson Louis was diagnosed at 6 years old with having "DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY". This came as a complete shock to our whole family as we'd never heard about this form of muscle disease, nor is there any previous family history of this condition. The past year has been very painful for all of us, as we've had to learn a lot about Louis' condition and how he will be affected in the future.
There are a number of different types of muscular dystrophy, DUCHENNE being the most severe form. All of which are caused by faults in the genes which cause a cruel, progressive muscle weakness due to muscle cells breaking down which in time are gradually lost. This is a very rare and serious condition, which affects around 100 baby boys per year in the U.K. By the age of 8 to 11 years all boys are unable to walk, and confined to a wheelchair, and for all boys, this conditions is so serious, it is 100% fatal.
If you would like to donate to our charity to help in the finding of a cure for Louis, and all the other boys suffering, then please contact me.
