Hooray for Halloween

I made these little coffins for my DD and her friend to put their goodies in tonight when they go trick or treating. I got the template from marthastewart.com and I just used some orange thanksgiving paper which I won last year I think to line the insides.

Burger me - DS is 16!

Here is the card I have made for my DS's birthday. I used a template I found in an ancient copy of Making Cards Magazine. The burger 'meat' is actually co-ordinations card stock which, when sanded down, shows through a lighter colour. I used perfect pearls for the 'sesame seeds' on the bun, and the 'onion rings' have been cut from vellum.

Magnetic Calendars

Here's a pic of some mini calendars I have made. I have used bits and bobs from my stash, and stuck a magnetic strip on the back so they can be stuck to fridges. I've sold quite a few of these already and they;re great fun to make.















Over on Just Bex we were challenged to make a card featuring an animal. Heres my take on it

Notebooks

This is a selection of notebooks I have covered and tarted up.Some are for orders and some are for a couple of Sales I've got coming up. I've mainly used the Berry Sweet collection from K & Co, and the plum pudding collection (Craftwork Cards) for the Xmas Lists.

Beautiful Cards Magazine

Yesterday I realised I had a couple of cards published in the readers gallery of Beautiful Cards issue 27. Someone from the forum pointed it out to me, as I had sent them off months ago and forgotten all about it. The 1st card was a commission for a bloke who 'likes a drink' so I threaded some mini cans of lager on a string between the 4 and 0.















I thought this stamped sentiment teamed up well with the diamond paper, which I have glittered only you can't really tell from the photo.

September Forum Competition - Autumn Occasions

I entered 3 cards this month and one of them came 3rd. You got extra points for including animals on them which I managed to do, even if a butterfly & a dragonfly is stretching it a bit. If you look carefully there is a dog on the background paper of the bottom card.
