Gift Wallet

Short and sweet from me today. This is a little gift tag/wallet made to present some cash in. I made a little box on the reverse for the shaped tag to slide into. I used my Martha Stewart punches for the front and started with a piece of DP that was 6.75 ins x 5 ins.

DP - Papermania Capsule in Heather
Lilac card/Ribbon and Mirri Card from Stash
Tools Used:
Martha Stewart PATP - Eyelet Lace
Small & Medium Butterfly Punches (Hobbycraft I think)
Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet
Nestabilities Labels 14 for the tag

Thanks for looking.

Have a Tweet Day !

Today's card has been made for the latest challenge over on the MSE board. So back to my favourite lilac again and this time with a hint of pink. I wanted to try out something I've seen on one or two blogs in the past, most notably Mandy's - A Sprinkling of Glitter - so used my Martha Stewart PATP set to make a pretty shaped card front and then decorated away! I also got to use one of my new Spellbinders dies from the recent C&C Multibuy Six Set offer. Can you believe I've had them about 10 days and only just cracked the first set open.

and a sideways view:

Seeing Double ......

Almost but not quite.....

Version 1

Version 2

This little card was made as a Thank You for the lovely Jacque from the USA.  Recently I was lucky enough to win one of her lovely blog candies and used some of the prize goodies on this card. Anyway, said card and little reciprocal gift was despatched to the USA mid-March and finally arrived with her on 31st May!  The Version 2 card was made to re-send to Jacque as I was convinced the first package had gone astray for ever.

Please do visit Jacque's blog ( and say Hi. She really does some fantastic work and hers was the very first blog I read at the start of my cardmaking journey.

Good Luck !!

Here is my entry for Georgiegirl's Good Luck Challenge over on the M.S.E. board.  I was a bit lacking in inspiration so spent a while flicking through lots of my old magazines and, after cramming my head full of too many ideas, this is the end result! The most fiddly part was lining up all the butterflies and I'm still not convinced they're straight.

DP - K&Company - Daisy by Tim Coffey
Sentiment - Papermania (magazine freebie set)
Card, Ribbon & Gems from stash
Tools Used:  Martha Stewart Border Punch - Vintage Floral
Butterfly Punch (by Hobbycraft I think)
