This is Communion and Confirmation season over here at the minute so i have been flat out making cards.
This card is for my Sister Erin who is making her Confirmation this year.
Another confirmation card ordered by a friend for her grandson.The same lady also ordered a card for her other grandson who is making his First Holy communion.
These cards were made using an a4 pearlescent card, cuttlebug folders, anitas peel offs, ribbons and little charms.

I decided to try and make a quick and simple Mothers day card for my nan and this is what i came up with and entering into the challenge.
I enjoyed trying something different and keeping the card clean and simple for a change.
For my card I printed the sentiment onto the card blank and then stamped my new V&A Inspired stamps across and coloured with promarkers.
This weeks challenge was to use dies or punches on your project.
For my card i decided to use some of my lovely glittered cardstock, which i had kept because it's so pretty and i wanted to keep it (you all know the ones, the ones you keep buying but keep to admire and stroke cuz they are sooo pretty)
Recipe For this card
Image was free with a magazine, and coloured with Promarkers
Gingham paper from Crafts Too
Flowery purple cardstock from DCWV Pocket full of Posies Matstack
For the flowers and the swirls i used my Sizzix dies
For the image I used my nestabilities for all 3 layers
To finish i embellished with Wild Orchid Crafts Pearls
And i centred the flowers with buttons

For the final card, I made an A5 sized card decorated with scrummy cup-cake papers (cant remember the name of the pack), i used the cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday' embossing folder for the centre strip, pink satin ribbon, more lovely flowers from W.O.C. and glitter cardstock stickers for her name plaque. To finish I added a few pearls.

I got a bedroom for my craft room and hubby-to-be got the conservatory for his xbox and pool table. Fair deal I'd say??
