Nieces birthday cards

I managed to use my trimmer without help (so hands def on the mend) to make these cards for my twin nieces who are 11 this Saturday.
They also count towards the challanges on Friday sketchers (the sketch) and Magnolia down Under (buttons).

I've used Stampin' Up Designer papers and Card stock in Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive, the sentitment is from the Cheers and Wishes stamp set.
Hope you have a great birthday girls...........

Busy evening.........

Here are the cards that I made at the class I went to last night......... by the end of the evening my hand was really aching and I haven't been able to do much to day!! All that distressing has taken its toll on me... but I just love the effect on the cards.

Shaz kindly added the Dazzling Diamonds using Stampin' Up!'s Heat and Stick Powder due to me still having my stitches in roll on next Wednesday.

We managed it ...........we made five cards in total!!! Heidi had to do all the cutting/trimming but I managed to do the sticking etc.....

Here I used a new stamp I got at Sandown Park, that Sue and Shaz kindly took me too, along with my Ski Slope papers, Real Red cardstock and sentiment (from Best Yet hostess set) from Stampin' Up!

I used my newly purchased Promarkers to colour the images in with and because I've still got my stictches in and don't want to get my wound infected I used stickles and flower soft to emblish this adorable couple.

a wee bit better now!! I've taken off my pressure bandage and it doen't look like I've done ten rounds with Tyson now!

But the brusing is really bad....(not the nice range of colours from the rainbow) I was warned about this from the surgeon as my other consultant has changed my medication, so healing process may also take longer.......... ouch!!

My daughter Heidi is being a great help, she has stamped up some images for me so at least I can colour them in with my good hand. As long as she doesn't have toooooo much home work I'm hoping she'll help me with the rest so together we can make up some cards this evening.

I'm getting servere withdrawl symptoms.............LOL

another teaser............

Here a couple of quick cards that I whipped up this afternoon, as I tidy up before I go into hospital tomorrow for my second round of Carpal Tunnel surgery. This time on my left hand so hopefully I wont be out of action for toooooo long, especially as I still want to play with all the new stamp sets that I managed to get my hands on for the sneek peak......

I've used the flowers from the new stamp set Good Friend and the sentiment is from Very Versitile which is only avaliable until the end of September from the Mini catalogue.

I challanged myself to work with a colour that I haven't used but really love Taken with Teal. Here I've used it with Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie.

New meets the old............

I've made 2 zig-zag cards here using those gorgeous Winter Green papers......mmmmmmm I'm in love with them......... which are reduced by 25% on the last chance list

On both cards I have used Wonderous Gift and Circle of Friendship stamp sets, which can be found in both the old and new catalogoue.

I've also dressed the tree's with baubles using glitters from 1 of the 2 NEW ranges of Stampin' Glitter and Tombow adhesive. I can't wait to get my hands on the other set............

God's Blessings

My neighbours got married today and guess who forgot to make their card in advance.......Yep ME!!!

So between helping Amy to pack (she's off to Uni tomorrow) and getting ready for the wedding I managed to whisk up this little card........... the image seems to be a favourite of mine at the moment for weddings, this is the 3rd time I've used the happy couple.

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! it is 1 of 8 stamps from the God's Blessings stamp set which is on the " last chance list" at a reduced price of £20.21

Silent Night

This is one of my favourite Christmas carols and I just love the image and sentiment Stampin' Up! have used in this stamp set.

I've made two different cards using the Silent Night and Snow Burst stamp sets. The first is using the Holiday Papers again that are on the "last chance list" and the co-ordinating card stock Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red.The second is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White cardstock, I then matted this on Night of Navy cardstock before giving it a scalloped edge.

On both card I have used Tombow adhesive and Dazzling Diamonds (not sure if the camera managed to pick this up) on the church roof and on the trees

Here I've use the Snow Burst stamp set in the back ground, stamped in and on Sage green card stock and made these snowmen using a vairety of punches/ nesties. The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings.
