2nd Attempt!

Hi ya,
After trying the magic slider card, I thought I would have another go as I was in the flow - or so I thought!!!
Goodness how wrong was I , it really didn't come together at all, the sliding part did not want to be my friend at all, so I will be calling this card the gatefold card without the magic sliding bit!!!
Here is the front of the card, quite simple just with a sentiment

And here is the inside

I do love this colour combo pink and green I believe I have done a few in different papers before but still the colour combo its lovely and refreshing.
I think the stamp is penny black and the border is a CC designs.
There is a bit of bling and sparkle from stickles but alas can never seem to catch in a photo!

Hope you like, enjoy the weekend !!

Gatefold Shutter Card

Hi there,
I have been seeing a few cards of late which if I remember rightly are called a gatefold shutter card.
I love the overall affect and decided to give it a shot so this is my first attempt , could be a little neater , hopefully they will improve as I make others.
I know we are in April and yes I decided to choose a Christmas theme as will be taking part in the ABC christmas challenge (home) or (informal).
Maybe my next one will be Easter themed which is more appropriate for this time of year!
Here is the front of my card which has a little belly band t0 keep the card closed
This is such a cute image and from a very old Doodlebug stamp set i stumbled upon when i was searching for something else.
The inside of the card is when the magic happens as you may be able to see here
The green pieces of card are attached to the outer folds so when you open the card they pull apart revealing the message it's so cool!
Thanks for looking x

Chalkboard Card


Hi again,
Well I didn't expect to be back so soon but here I am with a nice and easy card using some lovely papers which have a chalkboard effect , I think this is a pad from Craftwork Cards.
The best wishes tag is from a matching tag pad that goes with the papers.
I haven't done a lot with this one, nice and simple, I'm loving my little pink sizzix bee die with his 
sparkly wings his so cute.

Inkychicks challenge - anything goes
Everybody art challenge - anything goes

Christmas Card

Hi, a Happy New Year to you all x
A little late for Christmas but this is one of the few cards I made last year using the lovely /neat and tangled stamps and dies, nice and easy for me as not much colouring needed to produce a quick and easy card.
Ideal when you lack inspiration but am hoping it will come back to me this year as I have lots of unused stash that is crying out for some love.
To help me back into my crafting hobby I decided the best way to do it will be to join in some of the many challenges out there which will hopefully give me some much needed va va voom!
