Fabulous Fashion

Hi there. The card I'm posting today is another type of card I don't normally make, a CD-Rom and a decoupage card both of which I said I didn't like and would never use. The CD-Rom I used is from Katy Sue Designs called Fabulous Fashion which appealed to my girly side with its different collections of really sweet dresses, hats and handbags. I thought I would try the decoupage because it didn't look like some of the old-fashioned varnished ones I'd seen before and disliked. I was really happy how this card turned out and wanted to give it to someone special so I sent it to Lexi, Chris' girlfriend for her birthday. I hope you like it.

The colours haven't come out as well as I hoped in the photo but they are a lovely shade of pale blue and lavender.

Bumble Bee Fairy

Hi there. Today's card is a cute stamp from LOTV ( lili of the valley ) called Bumble Bee Fairy. I made this card for my mum for Mother's Day using some of the butterflies I bought in Georgetown in Washington last year on our epic USA holiday. I'm amazed that we managed to get my craft supplies back home in one piece as our luggage was searched several times after my mum tried to take a banana into America. I think we were put on a blacklist as banana smugglers! I hope you like this card. Have a good weekend.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

                          Sorry for the photo background. I hadn't found a good place to take my photos at this point.
