A christening card

My sister asked me to make a card for her granddaughters, my great niece's Christening. As she doesn't like anything too fussy and because she was being christened in a lovely Country Church in Yorkshire, I thought this would fit the bill.
The stamp is from Joanna Sheen, embossed with gold. The sentiment is computer generated and then layered on rectangle nestabilities. It is finished off with a simple gold ribbon and a rhinstone ribbon slider. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry.
Thanks for looking

A card for a friend.

I made this card for my friend Pat's Birthday. It is 8 inch square.I used Art Impressions stamps and Marvy Leplumme Markers. The background was stamped with versamark and then chalked.
It's a lovely sunny day today, I have been to the beach with Olivia and could feel the warmth of the sun on my face, so nice after all of the very cold weather we have been having.
Thankyou for looking.

I would like to introduce my very good friend Olivia. She is a liver spotted Dalmatian and the most loving dog I have ever been owned by. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago on a walk in the snow. Thankyou for looking.

My very first post.

Hi and welcome to my blog and my very first post. It's quite exciting to be a blogger. The first card I am going to show, is the card that I made for my husband Charlie for Valentines day last Sunday. The heart and flourish stamp I got free with a magazine last spring and I had never used it. As it was for a man's card I thought the black and white, would be nice for his Valentine instead of the usual red. I used white embossing powder on black card and vice versa. The embossed white swirls are a cuttlebug folder. I have now entered this card in Crafty Ann's challenge . If music were the food of love.
Thankyou for looking.
