I made this for my Mum for Mothers Day, I usually make cards for her and put them on the grave along with the flowers.

The card was made with card from my card stock, and glitter card from card stock. The Oriantal flowers were from a kit to make oriental screens.

Cards and Tags I have recently made.

These are some of the tags that I make, to go on flower arrangements.

The card to make the top tag, was from card stock, the card to make the other three tags were from DCWA mat stack books. The were then decorated with decoupage and the third one down was decorated with peeloffs, the butterfly peeloff was mounted onto velum and coloured with Tombow dual brush pens. Then I cut the butterfly out and mounted it onto the card with some Collall glue.

Concertina Card

This little concertina card, was made with blue card stock, on the front of the card is a teddy bear decoupage from the Le Suh mini Teddy Bear decoupage booklet and some decorative fibre to tie the card with.

Inside is a photo, and some peeloffs, and some pretty ribbon.

On the reverse side is a butterfly topper, and photo and a cut out teddy. There is also a sentiment which says "Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake".

Baby Card

This was really a very simple baby card to make. I bought this kit because it had some of those clutter cards in it to make, and a couple of waterfall cards. I think the kit was called "Carry on Crafting Projects - Best of 200", and that is what I shall call it from now on.

This baby card that came out of it, I thought was a crisp, clean looking card. So the card and topper was from the kit. The blue spotted matting card was from the DCWV Nana's Kids Premium Stacks, some blue vellum for an insert, blue ribbon and of course some peel off stickers.

Kitten and Cup

I really quite like the Eyeball This Kit, so used it to decoupage this aperture card, with silver holographic card to back it, and corner peeloffs. I sent it as a Get Well Card.

A birthday card for a young boy. Bronze card stock was used, with green peeloffs. The decoupage was from the Eyeball This Kit, and the green spotted backing card was from the DCWV Nana's Kids Premium Stack.

Leaf on Water

The decoupage on this card, was from the Eyeball This Kit again, backed with card from the DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Mat Stack.

The card was a mans birthday card, who likes gardening, so thought this leaf on water would be fairly suitable. It is difficult to find suitable components for mens cards, as crafters are well aware. I do have mens decoupage, but thought this little chap on his leaf was suitable for a gardener.

Little Fairy

This card to a friend, was made using cream card stock, matting and laying was with silver mirror card, then DCWV Once Upon A Time Mat Stack. The decoupage was once again from the Faerie Poppets Kit.

Fairy Card

A birthday card to my niece, made with Faerie Poppets decoupage, and an aperture card.

Little sitting poppet

I made this card for my Mother-in-law for Mothers Day. Again I used an aperture card from the Fantasy Wonderland Kit, and the decoupage and backing paper were from the Paintbox Poppets Kit.

I really like the Painbox and Faerie Poppets, they are so beautiful. The cards from the Fantasy Wonderland Kit are lovely, I feel like I'm cheating in a way, because most of the work is done for you, although I added some of the self adhesive ribbon that comes with the kit.

Card for a friend

This card was for a friends 50th birthday. The aperture card was from the Fantasy Wonderland Kit for the card and self adhesive ribbon, black background card from The DCWV Far East Mat Stack, and the decoupage was from the Faerie Poppets Kit.

Two little ballerinas

This card was for my Mother on Mothers Day. I used an aperture card from the Fantasy Wonderland Kit, and the decoupage from the Paintbox Poppets Kit. My Mother is no longer with us, but I love to make cards to take to her at the cemetry.

Birthday Card for Hubby

This was a birthday card for my husbands birthday in March. Made with card and papers from stock and corner peeloffs. The decoupage was from the Eyeball This Kit.

Fathers Day 2007

Made for Fathers Day 2007 using Hummel decoupage.

Birthday Card for Dave

Birthday card using Hummel 3D decoupage, and 3D bubble aperture cards.

Leaf Dress

The Leaf Dress card was made using Dufex flower card, some pink self adhesive glitter paper, a bodice stamp, which was embossed with black glitter. With Flower Soft over the top of the bodice. Also with black and pink leaves, and ribbon.

Pretty Ballerina

This is the card I gave to my sister for her birthday last year. The card was made using the Fantasy Wonderland Kit for the aperture card and self adhesive ribbon. The little ballerina decoupage was from Matori Designs Number 066880, it was in a decoupage pack, but can't remember the name of the pack.

Rose card and Pansy card

The Rose card has used the K&company Designer Mat Pad Wedding collection, and the rose from the Small Beauties Diecut 3D decoupage.

The Pansy from the Pansy card is also from the Small Beauties Diecut 3D decoupage.
