Recent makes...

Back from my holidays and now very much back in the swing of things with the cardmaking. This is my fatpage swap for Aug on the CB forum. The theme is 'jungle fever' This second one is an ATC under the theme of 'summer hols' for the ATC Draw on the Cb forum. I struggled with this and was so uninspired, but eventually went with a 'where i'd like to be this summer' twist on the summer hols theme!

This card is for my friend Claire, whose boyfriend Gav proposed to her a few weeks ago when they were on holiday in Singapore. I love how it's turned out. His clan is Capmbell (as is mine in fact) so I've put the clan crest on the church/arch, along with campbell ribbon and a little kilted man with a kilt coloured closely as poss to Campbell tartan.

The next three are very quick makes for the box, using bubble stickers from this month's cardmaking and papercraft magazine. These were inspired by some Natalie made. At the moment, i've left the sentiments off them and will add those when i'm about the send them.

This is a new home card made with my 'houses' stampin up roller. I've embossed it with silver powder and then used by cropadile to pucnh holes along the top of two A6 pieces of black card, then tied to gether with fab purple ribbon. The sentiment is my very own handwriting :-)

This card is made using a free download from I've rounded the corners to give it a slightly better finish. It needs a sentiment added before being sent. Really quick and easy to make.
This is a new baby card for Martin's friend Sarah's new baby Sophie. Similar to a baby boy one I made last month.
And finally a quick evening acceptance for a wedding reception of one of Martin's colleagues that we've been invited to in October.

Thanks for looking and awaiting this long overdue update!
