Here is a card i made for my mum's friend who was getting married. The wedding was all Fuschia pink so mum wanted a card to match.








This is a card i made for Crafter's Companion launch of the new Floral's CD, i used the backing papers and the stamps for the flowers and the message, i had some butterflies off of one of the other sets as well.
Was really pleased with how this one came out too!





Here is a card i made for my sister-in-laws 40th birthday. I used the bookatrix board and papers from the Crafters Companion Florals CD.











Here is my very 1st attempt at a toe tapper card, i embossed it with one of the keepsake boards and then sanded the embossed bits to make it slightly aged and distressed, because the paper was an aged looking paper. Was quite pleased with result.











This card i made for my uncle's 80th birthday, i designed all of it, including the papers! the topper too, he was so chuffed with the finished result.











This card i made for my dad, he's a builder, so played about with inks and stamps with some peel offs etc and came up with this!















Hubby bought me a cuttlebug for my birthday, and ever since i have been using it for all sorts! they are fab! love the designs that you get with the machine. This was my 1st card made with it.










This was also using my cuttlebug, and is what is called a happy accident! i wanted to just emboss the gold lines, but when i put my versamark on the embossed image, it embossed the whole background too! bearing in mind the card was cream, the whole background turned gold, so was actually quite pleased with my 'accident'

Bookatrix Card



I loved the image on this card and made the card based from the colours in the image. Its a bookatrix again.
I also made this to match the papers. It wasnt made for anyone in particular, i just felt that it would be a lovely wedding card.

Mum and dad's anniversary Card


I made this for my parents anniversary, using the bookatrix board as well as the majestic board for the flower, matching box too.

Here are just a few of the cards that i have made over the course of time! these are a few of my favourites, When i can work out how to add another page i will post more of my cards, but you can always check out my webpage where i have alot more cards for you to see.www.freewebs.com/indicards/index.htm

Wedding Card


I finally worked out how to add smaller images! so will try at some point to make the other images below smaller ones!
If i cant edit them and make them smaller then your going to have to put up with it! Sorry!
This was a wedding card i made for friend of mine, it opens like a gatefold, but isnt!
Hope you can see it clear enough? it looks a bit light?
