Happy, Sad & Strong - Wonderful Women in My Life

An interesting day making some very different cards for some wonderful women...

This first one is for my neighbour's birthday tomorrow. She is such a special person and we have been friends and neighbours for over 20 years:

Papers used: 7 Gypsies, K&Co and Graphic 45 with a Stampin Up stamp and Green Tara satin ribbon.

The next one is for my friend who unexpectedly lost her sister this week. It is such a sad time and I just wanted to let her know I feel for her:

It is very simple and uses Crafty Individuals Paper with Kaisercraft stickers, a die cut banner and stamped sentiment.

The last card is for my aunt who is recovering from breast cancer surgery:

I used Kaisercraft paper, a Unity stamped tag and wooden shapes.

Long time no blog

I have been extremely slack in terms of the upkeep of my blog, so here is a full on catch up since Mothers Day:

My gorgeous birthday cake (back in June) made by my talented friend "Cakes by Michelle Camp" - luscious Hazelnut & Raspberry with a stunning Peony on top:

Now back to craft...

An engagement card I made for my friends daughter (and who's engagement & wedding invitations I have been asked to make):

And another upcoming engagement card: 

A thank you card for a lovely friend: 

and this special birthday tag was made for me by a talented friend:

and for something completely different... a mask made from white Green Tara leaves and colour misted:
