On my how long

Wow its been over a year since I last blogged. Home and family life has been a bit hectic, and I lost all motivation with card making. Hopefully  I'm back on track now and will start blogging again.

The Little Boy Card

This year I have decided  I must use existing stash including stamps that I have long forgotten about instead of keep buying new stuff ( and then forgetting about that as well ;)  ).

I made this male card using this cute little lily of the valley stamp.


 

I used,
Lily of the valley boy stamp coloured in with Spectrum Noir Pencils
My Minds Eye Cut and Paste Charm Paper Pad,
Tim Holtz paper distresser,
Card Candi coloured in with Spectrum Noir Pens,
Quikcutz photo corner die and the tag was cut on my Craft Robo,

I would like to enter it into the following challenges,

The Quick Engagement Card

This is another card I made last year for our close friends who got engaged, I cannot take any credit for the design of the card I did a quick google search and did one similar to this one for  quickness.



To Create the card, I used my Craft Robo to cut out the couple  and hearts using Black card,
Papermania  Black Capsule paper pack,
Heart Texture folder from sizzix
Stampin Up Fancy window punch,
and the bling and sentiment were from stash.

The Elegant Lady Card

Again the time seems to have flown by since I last blogged. We have had a pretty manic couple of months, including a fantastic family holiday,  decorating our son's bedroom to make it more grown up for him, work and general family life

I have managed to get some time in the loft and am in the process of making some Christmas Cards.

This was a card I made back in September for my Mother in Law,  I wanted something simple but elegant.



To create this card I used, 

Elegant Lady digital stamp ( I cannot for the life of me remember where I got it from)
Quikcuts Elegant corner die, 
Oval and Scalloped Oval nestabilities,
Neroli Paper Pad from first edition, 
Hat pins were made by me, 
Pearls and ribbon were from stash,
