"A" Swap Cards

Today, I have two cards that I would like to share with you. They are cards that I made for a swap. The theme for the month is to have something on your card as the main feature/embellishment starting with the letter "A".

The first one is an Alien card - I have paper pieced the alien, which I then placed on to an embossed piece of card, which I sanded a little bit.



The second card is what I call the Apple card. This was my first attempt at making this type of card. The apple also has been paper pieced.



Hope you enjoyed looking at my creations today.

40th Birthday Card Request

I was asked by a friend to make a 40th birthday card - with a fishing theme - for her son-in-law. I was a bit stumped as to what to do, so I went to Crafts U Print and thought I would give the 3d fishing easel card a go. 
My first attempt didn't go too well. The photo below is of the finished second attempt. Needless to say that Kevin loved the card. The photo doesn't do it justice - the fish is hanging freely on fishing line off the rod.

I'm back....and Trains

Where has the last month gone??? I'm back again after a short break. While I've been away, I have spent quality time with my sister (who was visiting from Townsville), as well as with my family.

I have been busy making things, and I hope to share them with you all shortly.

Over the next few days (maybe a couple weeks) I want to share some projects that I have made over the past.

One of neighbours, Bob, loves trains. So I made these for him. The patterns are available from
Form-A-Lines Stitching Cards. I put them in frames, so that he'll be able to put them up on his wall.

Colour Bingo Swap - Card 2

Here's the other card that I made for the Craft Mad July swap.

To recap what we had to do - we had to choose the colours we wanted to use on two cards from the colour bingo card.  Each card can use a different combo of colours but they have to be three horizontal, or three vertical or three on the diagonal just like tic tac toe.


For this card, the colours I chose were Blue, Purple and Pink.
