Just a note...

Always good to have a few cards to send 'just because'.  I got this image from a friend (thankyou!).  The feature die was from a magazine years and years ago which I had never used before- quite like it!  I think it will be in action again!

Birthday Cake anyone?

I think Duke (the dog) isn't in the mood for sharing his cake, so you might be disappointed!

Stanley the puppy

This puppy image by DigiStamp Boutique has to be one of their cutest.  I'm not a big dog fan but reckon that if I had a dog like this one, with aplouring eyes I wouldn't be able to resist loving it.

Fabulous birthday!

Many times last year I looked in my card stash and found that I only had one (or maybe two) actual 'birthday' cards.  I seem to end up getting side-tracked into making non-specific cards.  They are great but occasionally you really need something that actually says 'birthday' on it...
Hence it was my aim this year to make more.  This is one made using an Alistair the Lion image by Digi Stamp Boutique.

Tweetest Wishes

I'm a massive fan of the Chubby character by DigiStamp Boutique- not sure why.  Maybe it is the shape of his face.  He seems to have 'character' as it were.  
An apt sentiment for D. Trump maybe?? Lol!

Happy Valentine's Day

Not that I really celebrate Valentine's day, but any excuse to make a card ;-)

With Love Birdies

Valentine's Day is nearly here!  I used images from a DigiStamp Boutique bird set to make up this card. Thought it would make a nice Valentine's card for one member of the couple to send to the other.

Happy 40th!

A friend's husband is 40 today!  Where has the time gone??? I remember making a 30th card for him. I can't believe that was 10 years ago!
Seeing as he is still passionate about sailing (when he gets the time, which isn't very often) I went with that theme again.
The image is by DigiStamp Boutique.

National Send a Card to A Friend Day!

I found out about this day by accident but thought the sentiment behind it was lovely.  Who isn't cheered up by a handmade card arriving in the post?  Just what you need in February.
I was experimenting a little with some flower images from DigiStamp Boutique, to make a few cards which are a bit different to my 'norm'.  What do you think?

Sketch Saturday #499

It's my last Sketch Saturday challenge as part of the DT.  It has been a fab (nearly) 2 years and I have really enjoyed it. Time for me to step aside and let others have a go now.  The DT is such a strong and friendly bunch of ladies I recommend the post to anyone.
Anyway, this week's challenge is sponsored by Scrap N' Dipity- one lucky winner will be able to have a free digital stamp of their choice.
I have used the image I love Carrots Too on my card- thought it was a good one for Easter!
Hope you are inspired to join in this week :-)
