Happy For You Card

I brought a crafter's inspiration magazine from Crafter's Companion  over six months ago and I was having a tidy and came across it so decided to have a look what was in the box. I took the magazine out and this card was one of the projects I really enjoyed making this card. This is one of three cards I have done three different occasions and colours . I have just matted each layer with tape on this card.

Here are the measurements for the card. Base card 8 x 8 Black Mat 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 Blue mat 7 1/8 x 7 1/8

Two Happy Anniversary Cards

Today I have made two anniversary cards both with the same stamp set and ink colours just slightly different. Card one Is A6 in black with a white mat slightly smaller to give a black edging . I have stamped my heart all the way down the left side in red and not a full heart I then stamped my sentiment and rings in black ink.

I used Visible Image Happy Anniversary stamp set and the Accessorise stamp set.

Card two I have just stamped the heart on both sides but more of a heart on the left than the right. I really enjoyed making these cards.

Stay safe

I would just like to say stay safe everyone only go out when you need to and please shop for what you need there is enough for everyone.

Please do not panic buy as this leaves people without and think of all those workers who are key workers we can't get to the shops till we finish work and this is late afternoon and there is hardly anything left.

Today was mother's day I took my mum flowers chocolates and a card I left it on the door step and knock walked away was so hard not to give her a hug but I didn't want to pass any germs I may have had on me. I wished her happy mother's day and blew a kiss and she was so happy it made both our day. I told her to stay safe.

Take care everyone a big virtual hug for you all from me stay safe we can ride this out lets hope if everyone does as they should this will soon be over.

So sorry card

A very quick and easy card I found this stamp set in my collection I have had it years never been used I used my daubers to ink my flowers so I have green leaves and pretty red flowers with a little black gem in the middle. I stamped this onto a piece of white card and then matted it onto a dotty green paper and then on to a red A6 card.
