Kraftyhands August challenge- Sketch

The theme for August is a sketch. I love sketches, it takes the hard work out of designing a card. when the old grey cells don't work properly.

Here is my card using the Femme Fatale CD
I have distressed the papers with my Tim Holtz inks. Added a square doiley and Ribbon from stampin Up.

I hope you join in this month. It would be great to see your cards using this sketch.

Go to the Challenge blog here

See you soon.

Cameo Shoes Baby card

Todays card has been made using a bunting die from Joanna Sheens Signature collection. Mariannes Baby die and the shoes I cut on my Cameo. You wont find these shoes to purchase anywhere, as they have been designed by myself and my friend Susi. Who helps me with anything I need advice on, regarding the Cameo.
 I drew a shoe in Cameo and Susi came up with the different ideas to make a girls shoe or boys shoe,. Thanks Susi.

I have made 2 more baby cards for the same baby, as an order. I will shoe them at a later date, as the baby is now a week overdue.

thank you for looking today.

Wedding Card

I very nearly threw this card away, as it wasn't going to plan but I persevered and got there in the end. I think it would have been better though with a pink background instead of the gold.
I made an 8x8 card from 2 sheets of A4 as I had run oout of 8x8. So the inside and back had to be covered and made pretty too.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Topper from Lili of the Valley.
White frame cut using grande square dies.
Embossing folder for the background was one from Crafters Companion.

Thank you for looking.
See you again soon.
