A few bits to share.

Yesterday being Halloween was also my Mum's Birthday and I thought I should really make her a card as I am trying my hand at cardmaking now! I bought some of the Magnolia Halloween stamped images on ebay and set about colouring them in, making a character to signify each of her 4 grandchildren( and as my sister is expecting then the cauldren is for her little one who is still cooking lol!) I used some of the new Basic Grey Eerie papers and also some Bazill cardstock and the end result was this, which I am really pleased with and my Mum absolutely LOVED :) The card when folded up measures 6" x 12" so is quite large but sits nicely when its opened up and stands like an easel.










And these are just a couple of older layouts with and autumny theme or colour.










Hope you are all having a nice Sunday, I am just off to do the ironing....oh deep joy! At least the rain has stopped hammering down outside for a little bit.

  7. Well done Anita. Love the card - perhaps you should do a class? The LOs are stunning, I especially like the 'in my daughters' eyes'. The words are so lovely. Do you want me to bring any particular stamps with me on Saturday? xx
