Crafting for Marie Curie

It's the National Marie Curie 'Tea Party' event this weekend.  I have friends who volunteer at a local MC hospice most weeks, running a craft/art group in daycare.  They are keen fundraisers too and are going to have a craft stall at Marston Green fete on 1st July in aid of Marie Curie's tea party event.  The craft stall will sell things they have made- they are all very talented artists and so it is well worth a look and it all goes to a good cause.
I offered to make a few cards and some brooches for the stall too.
 There is an 'English Tea Party' theme to all the craft so hoping these go down well :-)

Happy Birthday Hazel!

I believe today is Hazel's 80th birthday.  A new friend who I met through Bentley Heath Country Market and with whom I go to a craft group most Wednesdays.
Made using a DigiStamp Boutique Truffle image.

Celebrate with Winston

I used a fairly old image from a DigiStamp Boutique set to make this card- an image and character that will never date though- in my view.  Owls are even more popular these days than they were 5 years ago.

Monster Birthday

I love monsters on cards- so fun to make.  I played around with some Papermania die cut papers to make this card using a DigiStamp Boutique image.

It's been too long

This Just ME digital stamps image made me smile.  How many people do you know that you keep thinking you really should drop a line to and get in touch with?  I'm sure we all have lots.

Party time

I used this DigiStamp Boutique 'new year dog' image to make a 'congratulations' card which I thought would be good for exam results season in August.

Good Luck Turkey

Perhaps a bit late for the 'good luck in your exams' season but I thought I'd make a card using images from this DigiStamp Boutique farmyard set.  Not sure how much 'luck' a turkey brings when they are generally destined for dinner on 25th Dec- lol!

A Birthday Order

I was asked to make a birthday card for someone's husband who was turning 60 and is a photography enthusiast. Luckily DigiStamp Boutique released a camera set of images last month which saved my bacon.
I printed the camera onto different background papers and pieced them together.  Then I cut out the 'lens' to make a shaker card, using the new brush strokes sentiments as a background.
I'm hoping this is well received.
