It's been a while!

Please forgive me for neglecting my Blog. After so much time I had put into it over the past years, it saddens me that I don't have the time to keep that up anymore.
But I'm still here. I don't have the same time as in the past to sit & create, but those times that I do, I feel so back in my element. I have made a few cards over the past couple of months since receiving my box of goodies from the new catalogue, and I'll try to share those with you in the very near future.

Today I'd love to share with you 2 special cards made for 2 very special people....

Fathers Day

Here is the card I made my dad... (yes, it's similar to the card I made for Paper Angel Fiona for her baby boy). I have this theory when I have a card design I like, change it around a bit and run with it... it's fun!

Stamps: Fox & Friends
Card: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie,
Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala DS Paper.
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Mini Library Clip
Tools: Big Shot, Junior Alphabet Sizzlits, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Adhesives including Dimensionals.

Card Swap

I'm part of a monthly card swap organised by Paper Angel Debbie and for the month of September my Buddie was Debbie herself who I had the pleasure making a card for. There's no theme, and no time limit, just one card sent to the buddy who's drawn out for you anytime during the month.

This is the Kissing Technique I have shared here before.
This time I have made it for Debbie with one of the Brand New Divine In-Colours 'Pear Pizzazz'

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Medallion
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Chocolate Chip
Card: Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Accessories: Pear Pizzazz Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Antique Brad
Tools: Stamp-a-majig (for verse in corner of card), Adhesives,
& Paper Piercer (tom make hole for brad).

If you would like to be a part of Debbie's monthly card swap, drop me an email and I will forward your details to her. We have 10 members so far, and it's always fun making the card for your buddy as well as receiving a card in the letter box each month.

No promises when I will be back with more, but please stay tuned.....
