Lovely Lady

Here's another card along similar lines to one I've posted before (Die Cut Magic) but with a much more dramatic look.
The lady is a Marianne Design Creatable Charleston Lady LR0140 die and the small motifs are from Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts. I find a 6" square card format is great for this look.

Felt Flowers

Here are a couple of cards with felt flowers as the focal point. They were cut with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals die. The flower centres are made with Papermania DIY brads and the backgrounds from Spellbinder dies and various embossing folders.

See through greetings

Here's one I made for my Mum's birthday in March.
The card was from an idea by Phill of Docrafts. I think you can find the instructions on the DoCraft site. The pic isn't great, the acetate is a nightmare to photograph. The card hangs down inside an acetate tent.

I'm afraid the card is no more as the new puppy got to it. Wee Rosie is so cute though you can't be too hard on her.

Retiring again...

It's a while since I posted any cards I've made. Must do better!
This is one I made for a contractor at work who leaves every now and then to retire but comes back.  He has a boat now to keep him busy hence the theme. Even the knots are correct thanks to the time I spent with the scout group my parents ran in my youth.
The wording was cut out on my Craftwell Ecraft machine using Sure Cuts a Lot to set the text up.
