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'
