New Cards

For the following card I have used a drawing by
Eva Hartman - do go and check out her drawings:
I have used Nestabilities Lacey Ovales. Isn't it a 
cute cat!

This digi is by Ikesart, and I made it for a challenge
which was to use a tag and buttons. I used strips
of patterned paper for the background. This is a 
good way to use up some of those strips that
you don't want to throw away but don't really
know how to use!

As you can see I have been quite busy card making
lately. Here is another card using a digi by
Nana Vic - I do like owls. The background I made
by changing a tree background using PS. I wanted
it to be fuzzy so that it wouldn't take away from the
main image.

My card is featured!

This is the card I entered on CDAC for the Colour Challenge
using a lovely frree flower digi by Paper Fashions, Etc. and is
now being featured on their website (
I used Nestabilities Lacey Ovales. As well as using it around the
picture I used another one in plain white and put it behind the picture
but insuch a way as it looks like extra scallops.  Then I made the
bow and bee pop out.  I went around the scalloped edges with
Aegean Blue. The patterned paper is from DCWV's Glitter Mat
Stack. I put ribbon the length of the card and added a bow.

A card for Noa

I'm having a great time this week at the CDAC one year
celebration - and it isn't too late to join in. It really is a
lot of fun!

Well, it's been a busy week for me card-wise that is -
(in all other ways too) and I have managed to sell
quite a few cards - but that means I have to replenish

Here is a card I have just finished making for one of
my grandchildren - her name is Noa and she will be
eleven this week. I hope she likes it. Usually I call
my kids and ask them what their kids like at the
time, but this time I decided to use this digi from
Tortagialla, which is very cute.

As you may have gathered, I like the Nestabilities
Lacey Ovales for my cards. Here I have used two
and overlapped them.  I have other ideas of how
to use these dies, but I have to try them out first.
