This first card I made for the challenge over at The Sugarbowl blog. The challenge was to use three scrap papers, three different types of embellishments (mine were flowers, decorative pearls and ribbon) and, for an extra entry into the draw, three Sugar Nellie stamps :D.
Then I made this one for the Basic Grey challenge, which was to use two scrap papers, three brads, one ribbon plus bow and a button :D. I love these "recipe" challenges, you don't realise how much paper and stuff you pile onto a card until you can use only a certain amount of stuff!
Next I made these cards for my second cousins, twins who are having their birthday next Sunday. I usually make them the same card with the same image, but mirrored. Forgot to mirror it so used different images, and why not, the girls don't look anything alike anyway ;o)
This is Honest Abeline, a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve! Abeline will never tell a fib and always speaks her mind. That does create some awkward situations, like when her mother asked her what Abeline thought of her new hairdo, or when her dad "suprised" her with the new Take That CD, adding that he thought she'd like it because it was her favourite band...luckily people generally appreciate her honesty, and all her little friends know exactly what to expect from Abeline!
And this is Fanny Fib, who can tell fibs till she's blue in the face! Whether to get her sister Abeline out of trouble (when Abeline told the police officer that they had crossed the street against the lights), to get herself out of a pickle ("but miss, my dad was painting the stairs and when he was done, I couldn't go upstairs anymore to fetch my homework!") or because she doesn't want to run errands for her mum ("I have such a sore head mummy"), Fanny always has a little white lie to hand ;o)
