Halloween Treats

These don't have so much inside as I planned as I was hungry and I just love Smarties :-( I will make some Toffee Apples to supplement the treats for any visitors who may come calling.

Out of my comfort zone

I am really getting into this type of card. Its a bit out of my comfort zone though as I am a red & gold girl at Christmas really but I am enjoying trying this new theme. I need to brighten it up a bit with the colours but the Figgy papers by Basic Grey are all this darker colour.

Shelly inspired Birthday Card

I am a great fan of Shelly
shellybobrowski10/26/2008 look at her blog and you will see why she makes the most amazing cards.

I just adore the way she puts her papers together with such stunning results. I wish I had her talent for doing this but I can't quite seem to get it right. Anyway I have had a go with a birthday card for my mum in her style. I had some decoupage which I made up a while ago and it goes quite well on this card.

More Christmas Cards

I have been busy making the mass selection for general use, I make special ones for friends and family but associates get the shorter straw and get these. I still put as much effort in to make them nice so I hope they are well recieved. I don't like the snow on the houses its too heavy looking and I haven't got it right but it can't be changed now. Other than that I am quite pleased with them.

Counting Book for Noah

I attempted to make a wipe clean counting book for Noah but its not what I wanted so I will redo it. It needs to be bigger so I can get the relevant number of animals per page and also get the names on the same side as the pictures. I wanted it wipeable as he is only 10months and a bit messy :-) bless him and he can have a chew if he wants too, I have rounded the corners for him.

3D Christmas Cards

I decided to make a few Hanging Snowflake cards. I cut on the Cricut and then threaded 2 together and hung them inside. Gold does not photograph well but they are better than they look :-(

Autumn Album

I adore Autumn colours so I thought I would put the photo's I have taken into an album of that theme. Thanks to my friend Sue for the idea of the poem by Mr Keats and the other 2 poems by (authors unknown) which I found online.
Papers are Dovecraft and Coredinations plus a few extra bits and my Accents Cricut cart for some of the embellishments. New Leaf die from Sizzix and a leaf punch I found in my stash
