Rita's Birthday

This one is just for you Nat... I know you wanted to see it.
Here is a pic of the card I made for Rita's birthday, Hope she liked it.
Happy Birthday Rita XXX

I used lily from Pink cat studio, and the papers were from the paper mania pastels pack. The sketch I used was on the Papertake weekly challenge. I never get to do the challenges straight away but still use them for inspiration. The flowers I recycled from a card that someone sent to me. They were so lovely I couldn't bear to throw them away.

Happy 2nd anniversay

Today is my 2nd wedding anniversary!

Here is the card I made for my wonderful husband. He likes froggies so I knew he would like this. The image is from Pink Petticoat which I coloured with water colour pencils then I coloured the heart with a red glitter gel pen so it really sparkles. The spotty paper was free in papercraft inspirations magazine (they always have such great freebies)

Its simple but it says everything I wanted it too. Xxx

natalies 18th

My friend at work Natalie is 18 today and a while ago she asked me to make her cake for her. So I agreed. she said she didn't care what it was like so long as it was pink. No problem I love Pink. she has a tattoo of some stars on her foot and that was my inspiration. I even made the butter cream inside pink by putting pink colouring in it.

Apparently it went down a storm and there wasn't a scrap left, I didn't even get a piece myself !!

I have to say thank you to the man in the icing shop for all his help and tips he was really good and helped me loads.

I did make her a card too with lily, from Pink Cat Studio, on it, but silly me forgot to take a pic. so you,ll have to use your imagination. needless to say it was pink! Xxx

Happy 40th Alden

My Husband asked me to make this card for his friend Alden's birthday. He and his wife Lara are very into Burlesque and are big fans of Dita Von Teese, so I tried to make a card in this type of style. I've never tried a style like this so found it a bit difficult but I hope I managed to pull it off.

The sketch of the girl is by pin up artist Rion Vernon and the font I downloaded from dafont. Xxx
