Keepsakes

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Girlie.

I have used a fabulous image and papers from the Ooh La La Creations The Paula Oakley Collection CD to make my card.

The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the pearls are from my stash.

Always & Forever

This is the card that I made for Matt to give his girlfriend, I always find it difficult to make these cards as I am frightened that the recipient might not like them.


I used papers and a topper from the NitWit Always & Forever collection.  I computer generated the sentiment, I tried to find the same font as the one on the topper but couldn't get a perfect match.


I also decorated the inside of the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination Challenge 100 - Always Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon Challenge 356 - Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Its Hip To Be Square

Mint and Blue

I have another of my Mermaid cards that were published in the July edition of Making Cards Magazine to share today

I  was asked to create the Editor's Selection cards using the super Mermaid Folk papers that were free with the magazine and also available on the free CD.  The aim of these cards is to show what can be created using just the free images and papers along with some basic stash items, a bit of a challenge!


I added a little mint card stock to the papers on this card and matted and layered the image a couple of times.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon from my stash.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes Craft Your Passion Challenge 326 - W, E3 - Always Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door  Challenge - Always Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.
