A Christmas card

I found this image and thought it would look great with some frosty blues and glittery white (how cute is the Robin???)

I can't post I on Facebook but I can post it here :)

I did scrap lift this card but I can't remember from where, however it most resembles the one that this lady made:

Quite simply made with a few stampin up punches and some scissors- I particularly endorse the use of Googly eyes (I got mine from morrisons) as they just add to the comedy :)

Ive never coloured dark skin before, I think i'm happy with the promarker colours that I used but think I could do better on the hair next time :)

Birthday Card :)

hello :)

Just sharing a quick card that I made on Saturday morning for my fella to send to one of his friends (dont worry - she collects sheep :)

Made using bits of the latest kit from Craftwork Cards and my favourite Create-a-Critter Cricut cartridge :)

8x8 card

Hi folks

I had a birthday card order for something "pink and girly" for someone who has just returned from living in Australia for a while - so this is what I made :)

My lovely mother-in-law asked me to make a silver wedding card for one of her neighbours, The rose is just a little bit art deco which I am a huge fan of!  I stuck with pearl, black and silver for a classy feel.  The card base is some really heavy pearl card (which I had to convince my printer it could cope with when I printed the sentiment - it disagreed, but I won in the end!).  The rose and leaves are from Sweethearts and the bling is paperchase :)

Mum's Birthday Present!

Are you sitting comfortably?  I have a tale to tell you.

Me: "Hi Mum - any ideas about what you want for your birthday"
Mum: "hmm.. some kind of knitting bag/Basket"
Me: "Ok, no probs, i'll find a nice one for you"

Kat calls up the internet on her laptop and gets searching for the lovely birthday knitting bag/basket
Me: "hm..."
clicks some more...
Me: "nope.."
clicks some more
Me: "nope.."

*Finds a friend online*  ... "Lou, Mum has asked for a knitting bag/basket and i am looking and they are all disgusting!"

Lovely Lou: "Kat, I know this lovely lady called Emma who is a fabby sewer - let me find you her details"

I click on the Sew Sweet website.... ooh.. this lady is goooood.  She has made these really sweet little mug organisers that you slip over a mug.  I think I'll email her...

Any to cut a long story short...

Emma designed this and made it and my mum LOVES IT!

I always say.. give credit where credit is due, and here, I think credit is very much due!!

A couple of Mother's Day cards

This one, I made using my new Owl punch - just very simple, clean and cute.  One of the sentiment boxes is a bit wonky but I actually quite like it :)

This next one is actually a re-design of a card that I made a few years ago for my own mum - I really love this tree stamp set - it's called "A Tree for all Seasons" and is now retired, so if you spot it on ebay, snap it up because its one of my 'go to' stamp sets - very versatile!

Some cards!

Hello folks - and here you were thinking I had completely ignored my new years resolution of doing one card a week.  I certainly haven't been doing one card a week (my workload just doesn't allow it!) but I have been making a few =)

This little card is for my boyfriend's best mate who gave him a life into central London after the snow was trying to make getting back to Birmingham from Colchester very, very hard indeed!

I really enjoyed making this one.  For another of my boyfriend's best friends with a huge soft spot for Minnie Mouse :)  It's his birthday card but I left off a sentiment from the outside so he could leave the card up.

I made a few of these for the valentines orders that I had.  I am almost out of the lovely cherry paper now which is sad because it's GORGEOUS and now out of print.  It's from the "Rockabilly" DSP series from Stampin Up.

Anyway my lovelies, I smell that my jacket potatoes are almost ready for our late lunch so i'm going to go and prod them :)
