Oh I think I might be on the mend!

Well I have had Flu......not Manflu aka a little cold, but full blown shivers, hot/cold, achie, snotty :),head hurting not fun FLU...........................and 2 weeks on I still feel rough....but much better then I did......so much so that I actually feel like making some cards!!


Looking for some inspiration for a card that I have to make for a birthday card group I am in, I turned to JustBex ....and I created a card using the SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE 1 TEMPLATE 0's and X's.


The recipe for the card is as follows:-


Papers from DCWV Teen range, the coloured ladybugs are from a kit from Create IT that I got years and years and years ago :), the chipboard greeting is again from another kit that came from QVC sometime this year unknown manufactor. I used a bright pink card as the base, covered it in bright orange (well its a creamy orange if you know what I mean), then cut strips of paper that have varying degrees of colour on them and placed on top of the orange card to form my 0's and x's and then a harliquin paper on top followed by the chipboard greeting, and then 3 little ladybugs in the bottom right hand corner.






Good friends of ours had a baby last year and I can't believe that James is 1 this coming weekend! its scary. I again turned to JustBex for some inspiration, I have lots of ideas in my head but sometimes I just cant get them down on paper/card, and I just need a nudge in the right direction and some inspiration from others ....and then off I go...........normally completely off on a different tangent lol!

Challenge 12 EASY AS 1 2 3

The recipe for this card is as follows:-

Craftwork Cardstock, paper,lettering, and images all from From Boys to Men paperpack from HOTP, blue glitter card, and some glue and some foam sticky pads!
