Card made with bits and bobs

Made this with some bits and bobs that i have lying around.  I have a box of Magnolia stamps coloured in and sometimes i just set myself the task of using one of them to make a project.  This card will be sent to one of my card swap friends

Friends 50th birthday project

Good morning all, thought i would share with you a project i have been working on for some weeks on and off.  I am going to Chelsea Flower Show this week with 3 of my friends, to celebrate one of them turning 50.  So i thought i would do her a really special project, she is keen on handbags, so have made a chipboard handbag.  I have done pages for the inside but left spaces for pictures.  I do hope she likes it.  When i have added the pictures i will let you see it.

Just to prove

I thought it was about time i showed a card suitable for a female, as most of my previous posts have been for males.  The stamp is from the new Lucy Cromwell papermania collections, when i first saw it I thought it was too girly girly for me but i really love it now.  Hope you like this card

Another male card

I seem to be making a lot of men's cards lately.  This was has been entered for The Craft Place Monochrome challenge.  I just love these stamps, i simply love the photography theme, one of my all time favourite stamp sets.

This is my husbands birthday card, but ssshhhh.... its not until next week so he hasn't seen it yet.  He has a classice beetle which he adores so thought this nostalgia stamp set was ideal.  I also used masking tape to make the border underneath the main image and stamped volkswagon beetle all the way along it and then distressed with TH distress inks, never tried this idea before but really like it.

Another birthdat card

I don;t use my Cricut nearly enough, so challenged myself to make a card with it, it's not my usual standard but not bad for a first attempt.  Note to self, must try and use cricut and gypsy more often.
