Green, Pink or Gold

Hi everyone,

Here is a card for my granddaughter Hannah who will be 7yrs in April.

This magnolia stamp is the 1st one I ever bought 
"Butterfly Tilda" from Butterfly Wishes collection.

With Green wings for a change and a dash of Pink 
as that is Hannah's favourite colour lol.

I couldn't find a paper that would go with Tilda so got out my Distress Inks, a butterfly stamp 
white embossing powder.

I have to say I am really pleased with how this turned out. 
I printed out the word Hannah, cut it up and placed it on the bottom of the card, 
there is a Pink H & a 7 on the tag too.



the inside of the card with an embossed butterfly coloured with distress inks

Joy crafts Butterfly die
Magnolia Doohickey Scalloped Tag
PION design Borders paper butterflies
Pink lace from my craft box

I would like to enter this into the following challenge

I have been having a lot fun colouring with Distress Inks I have to say!

until next time happy crafting..

Cards for Friends

Hi everyone,

Well, its officially Autumn here in sunny Melbourne - phew! 
Fingers crossed Mother Nature will catch on soon & give us some wonderful autumn days 
& not the heat of summer!

I've been busy making a few cards for a dear friend Davinia Wood who has now moved with hubby Phil to Geraldton in Western Australia right by the beach! 
From a place called Tom Price, the back of nowhere!

This card I made because Davinia said she would like a scooter to pop to the shops with 
(as yet I don't have Scooter Tilda) she's on order!
On the Road Tilda fitted the bill nicely and
"Cool" Edwin I thought would make a great Phil looking exasperated with Davinia riding her bike lol ..

I've used Kaisercraft Fairy wishes design papers. 
Magnolia stamps Tilda & Edwin both coloured with Distress Inks.
The largest of the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals for the card shape, I made slits in it to stand Edwin & Tilda against it & they fold down to close the card, I think it came out pretty well.

~~~     ~~~     ~~~

I can report that 
Davinia and Phil have now found & bought their first house in Geraldton - Yay!

For a New Home card I've used a favourite Magnolia stamp of mine
 "Welcome to a Lovely Home"

which is also coloured with Distress Inks, 
the papers are PION, 
Magnolia Doohickey Tag, 
the fence is LaLaLand, 
GoKreate & Spellbinders dies for the card shape.

Both cards have been received and were met with approval lol..

Its lovely to know that friends are happy & going to be well now they are down by the water, 
its the best place to be!
 I live near Port Phillip bay, which is 10 minutes away!

Stay safe and happy crafting until next time..
