Productive Sunny Weekend!

Apart from a little gardening, I have had a productive weekend, getting some family cards and orders done.  It was very pleasant sitting out on the patio crafting!

Card 1 using Pamela West 2 cd - I had intended to use the backing paper that went with the image, but my daughter dropped in with the latest Docrafts GoodyBag - and I just thought how perfect the backing paper and flower ribbon were to go with the bits I had printed off.  I was actually working on this card, when she called round - talk about excellent timing!  I also used the matching backing paper from the cd for the insert instead and added an  image of an Iris to it.

Card 2 - using one of the stamped images I coloured with promarkers during the week.  Backing paper from Daisy and Dandelion paper, mounted on brown cardstock.

Card 3 - created in MCS - the request was for a card with snooker and football and the wording shown. Backing paper and football collage mounted on green mirri board.  (the edging around the collage is very fine - just looks larger due to shadow.)


Card 4 - made using Forever Friends cd (and Publisher) - the image was actually the one for 18, but I cropped it so I could just use the 1 !

and finally card 5 - again using Forever Friends cd, and some bits I had already bought for this card for my granddaughter.  To match the red in the number topper, I opted for the Bear with the red heart. Would you believe that my daughter has also used this image for her card for Bea - albeit she used the full decoupage version, whereas mine is on foam pads!  (that's the second time we have used the same image unbeknown to each other!  I had originally intended using one of the ballerina bears, and I thought Dawn would use one of the decoupage sheets of fairies we bought at Ally Pally! - seems great minds are thinking alike yet again!)
