A great welcome to everyone who takes a few minutes to visit my blog, and hope you will return. I started off scrapbooking, but making cards soon overtook and I really enjoy seeing the end results. I enjoy blog hopping to see the wonderful creations from other crafters, there really are some talented, friendly people out there.

An Array of Cards

Hi fellow crafters,

Well the Autumn seems to be creeping in on us doesn't it, and the nights are getting darker, pity we didn't have a better summer but never mind at least we haven't had hurricanes and the like, have we...

I'm glad to see Eileen G back blogging again, bringing us some more super duper cards.  I have done a little bit of blog hopping and left some comments, some really pretty and unusual cards are being posted. It seems to have gone a little quiet the past few weeks, perhaps now winter nights are drawing in crafty mates will again start to post again.  I'm not sure if it's because I've changed my blog name but everything seems to have gone quiet.....

Anyway,  this posting consists of a couple of wedding cards for a friend and her sister, whose son is the lucky man.... also a couple of birthday cards, one for my Uncle, again more of a vintage and distressed feel to this, I do love making this type of card, and also a card for my little nephew who was 5 on 4th September.

On the wedding cards I used SB labels 1 small and 9, Grand Ovals plain and scalloped. Ribbons tag trio 3, Marianne  Creatables flower, LOTV wedding stamp, Penny Black Bride & Groom stamp, Pearl gem stone swirls, textured card stock and bits from my stash. 

For the vintage card I used a crreative expressions air ship stamp, Clarity vintage tiny stamps, TH cog wheels which I cut out of card and covered in Alcohol inks to look like metal.  The paper is Bo Bunny Time range, and bits and bobs frfom my stash.

My nephews card was a LOTV die cut I (I cheated a bit, as I didn't have time to stamp and colour in), plus, gro grain ribbon, paper is from my stash, sorry can't remember what make, and craftwork cards, card candy.

Hope you like them.  See you again soon.  Luv Dee xxx
