just a quick man's card

a S.W.A.L.K. card again, I like the epiphany tiles, they look really good

female birthday card

this is a card made using mostly oak house studio stamps, the background is 'walesby' stamp, and the mannequin is one of theirs, I embossed in gold, cut out and glued feathers at top and bottom, the ruler stamp is a woodware I have had for ages, the buttons oak house again, and the sentiment is a freebie stamper mag, I threaded a needle with gold thread and slotted into the sentiment

piano card for my sister

my sister has a black baby grand, and loves to play, so I bought a piano insert, it was a white piano insert in a black card, so not really that impressed, so I jiggled about a bit and made a room with the piano in

    the front is from a Debbie Moore cd


           this is the full room


    this is a mirror hung on the wall

       and this is a vase with an arrangement in

       this is the piano, I had to put the keyboard on

       and this is the rug on the floor

    she thought it was wonderful. So a lot of hard work was really worth it

wedding card

this is a card made for my mum for a quirky couple, so wanted a bit of fun as well as being pretty

   the box was made from a piece of 12 x 12 embossed card

   the image is a S.W.A.L.K. one, so is the "fun" part

      you can guess the name of the couple

this is the inside of the card


     mum didn't want much of a verse, as she is not that close to the couple

  sorry for the blurry photo - I am doing a photography course in the new year, so should get better piccys then, this is one of the epiphany embellishments, it does look better in real life
