Cute cards

I don't normally do "cute" cards - that's not to say I don't like them, in fact I love getting cute cards myself and have more than a few cute stamps in my stash. A friend of mine has been going through a rough patch lately and I decided to christen these Hero Arts stamps that I've had for quite a while now.

I hope it brightens her day a bit- hang in there kiddo.

With Love

Here is another card I made recently and I think the colours are scrumptious and the textures so lucious with velvet ribbons, organza flowers and the pearl brad. Enjoy.

Happy Birthday

It's my friend Lynnies birthday today and I hope this card gets to her before this post. I hope her day is filled with sunshine, lollipops and rainbows everywhere. She is one of the craziest people I know and that is exactly why I am glad to have her as my friend - every one needs some crazy in their lives.

I wish I could be there to help celebrate, oh well in spirit (vodka) if nothing else!!

Everything is going to be alright

I found this while cruising Etsy Prints a while back - I would love to link to the originator, but alas I goofed, so my apologies, but today it is very appropriate as I go back into hospital again and offline for a while and try & Just Remember to Breathe.

A funny thing happened on the way to...

This cute card has been around the block a few times...it was sent to me the last time I went into hospital back in March by my mate LeAnne....twice ...and still didn't get to me until the other day when I received it in person.....but I got it just in time for my next trip in to hospital, so it's just as relevant and I do love a good story.

Thank you LeAnne (& Sam), I really appreciate the effort.

More butterflies

This is another of the cards I have made using my stash, for no reason other than I felt like it. Enjoy.

Flight of Fancy

I am so spoilt..here is another stunning card from my friend Fiona who knows I have a fondness for butterflies. They don't get much bigger or more beautiful than this one.

It shimmers and shines and looks like it is about to fly off at any moment.

Sometimes it takes a while to get to photos...the ones in this layout are not really that old, just November last year, but gee it seems forever ago as we are now in May!!!! Someone tell me where did the time go apart from Christmas, school hols, back to school more school hols, Easter back to school and .....oh yes here we are it's May.

...Anyway...getting back to the layout....it was a great day, lots of friends, lots of laughs. It was nice to get glammed up and in honour of that rarity I did a glam layout using Heidi Swapp paper and Damask sticker together with the March Embellishment kit , Fancy Pants velvet ribbon and Fancy Pants paper.
