Christening card for a little girl.

I have tried giving this card a modern twist by using the banner effects and flowers. With the more traditional Cross as the main focal point.
It was well received.

Christmas Wreath

Last Saturday, I went to a friends Christmas Wreath class.  The ladies attending had a great time. I decided to be different and do mine in last years Stampin Up Christmas papers, punches and Dies. With the addition of a few other flower punches. It was great fun, with a break at lunchtime for a Carvery at the local pub.
Thank you Clair, Gaynor and all the girls for a lovely time.

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.
