Hope you are all having a great day!

Windy and cooler day here at the cottage, so I am having a pyjama day and we are huddled inside, feeling as though it is going to be rather a slack day actually, so whilst sitting here, I figured I would share another card with you all..

I created this card a little while ago for a friend, I decided to send some cheer her way..


I adore those penguins from MFT and of course I love shaker cards, so I went about stamping out the images from the Penguins in Paradise,  coloured them in with my copics and die cut out…I chose to add a soft background feature to be in the shaker part, so adding Lake Shore ink from Simon Says Stamp, setting aside to work on the window, in which I die cut a Stitched Circle from Simon Says Stamp, adding acetate to the back and foam tape, in the window I added lots of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and then closed up the shaker by adding the inked panel..next I worked on adding my images and sentiment to the front to complete..

So nice to be able to send out cards I create and give friends big smiles on the other end….I was also lucky this past week to receive a parcel of kindness from Jennifer McGuire, if you have not heard about her Share Handmade Kindness, then head over HERE to see..

I am off to slug around a bit more before having to head off to work in the afternoon..

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by..

Hi There

I am running a little behind in sharing some more Make Amazing design team projects..this month is all about giving, thanking and thinking of people..

Our assignment was to create a card set that we could send to people..using the Celebrations Collection..



I chose a cheery sunshine and clouds…die cutting some pattern papers with the Day Dreams die set, I chose to have the clouds more of a subtle colour, adding vellum over the top, so that the sun would be more of the sunshine cheer that I was looking for..


Adding these all in a cluster on my cards and then adding a sentiment from the My Friend stamp set, stamping with Berry Black, cutting this into a banner, finishing my cards off with a scattering of clear sequins from my own collection..


Quick and easy card set to put together to let someone know you are thinking of them..

I hope you find some inspiration today!

Thanks for stopping by..
