Love in my pockets

Here are two pockets that I made for the February Swap over at HCA. They follow a love theme but this may not be apparent until you look inside!!!

OK, better show the insides then!

The pink one has a surprise in the little envelope.

Another Birthday Card

I had to make a couple of cards for birthdays coming up next week and this is one of them. I just got this lovely new stamp from Sugar Nellie, I love Leanne Ellis' designs, they're great and you can get them here - no, I'm not on commission!!!!

Cover for my HCA tag book - updated

Started this last week but got side tracked, like you do, anyway managed to finish the front cover today, using lots of ink (including metallic and pearl) on my big swirly grungeboard element and chipboard letters, also used different papers front and back and my leafing pen.

I was going to add fibres etc but there are so many inside the book that I didn't think it needed them. Anyway the next step is to put holes in all the lovely tags that I've received via swaps through Hels Crafty Angels last year - and I'm really worried about doing it cus I dont want to damage any of the lovely works of art, but I do think this will be a nice way of keeping them all! Will put another picture up when its finished! Wish me luck :)

Well I was brave, and I added the holes to my lovely tags and - thank goodness there were no disasters :)

You can see the fibres peeping through from inside so all I did was add a couple of ribbons and tied them round the book rings :)

Sunday Stampers - Brown Eyed Girl

Well I decided to make an atc for the Sunday Stampers Challenge which this week was to make something brown. I used brown card, I tore some brown text paper and then I stamped an image using brown ink! I added some glaze over the writing and then added some orange gems (sorry not brown - although they do look brown dont they!) and finally I added a chipboard word. I must admit it's not a particularly good effort but I kept getting sidetracked by all the cards I have to make this month! So why didn't I make a brown birthday card then - DOH!

Kellys Card

Having a nightmare at home as Hula Boy has managed to do something to the computer so now every time you switch it off we lose all our settings, favourites, pictures - you name it - its gone! So finally managed to get this card scanned to put on my blog. This is a card for Hula Boys niece - she loves her car - but its not pink!!! Hope she likes it anyway - thanks for looking xxx
