Thank you card

I made this card for a good friend who recently gave us a lovely dolls house for our daughter. I cut the scalloped circle with the cuttlebug, punched the butterfly out and added beads to the body, printed the thank you greeting and finally punched out some paper buttons.

I would like to enter the card into the following competitions:

Fab & funky no 21 - no design papers
Flutter by wednesdays - CAS
Paddinton's MSE challenge - 3B's
Creative cottage no 8 - circles
Allsorts challenge - be inspired
Magical crafts no 13 - something for the girls
ABC challenge - T is for thank you

Husband's Birthday card & butterfly punch card

I haven't made any cards in a few days, but made this car one for my husband's Birthday. I printed the background of all the little red cars as a watermark directly on the card. The car was a decoupage print out, which I stacked using foam squares. I then printed out the checked flag pieces and mounted them onto cocktail sticks. Finally I stamped an image of keys on the front and coloured in.

I bought myself a new toy the other week, a butterfly punch, so I couldn't wait to try it out. I punched the butterflies directly out of the card and the put a piece of pink card on the reverse to give a bit of colour and added some beads to the bodies.

Flower power

Haven't managed to make any cards for a few days (major withdrawal syptoms) so grabbed the opportunity today to use some of the bits I had left from a magazine and make this today. I'm fairly pleased with the results (even though I'm not really one for flowery cards)
