 Hi everyone, sorry I have not blogged for a while, I really lost all inspiration these past few weeks but hopefully I am getting it back!!!   Yesterday I made these 2 Fairy cards for the card swap group at Dawn's Card Swap group on Facebook.  The first one on the left, I inked the background then placed a mask over it and spritzed it with water and got quite a nice effect.  The mat is a piece of Bo-Bunny card which I covered with an adhesive sheet then dipped in the glass micro beads which looks better in real life!  I stamped my image on one of my new Spellbinder Dies and coloured with Promarkers.  The other card was a really quick one using the new Spellbinder Basic Lattice die which I think is lovely.  I mounted this over some embossed white card and attached a Hunkydory Topper and some lace along the bottom.


My friend asked me to make her a couple of 'Dog' cards, the first one is for her work colleague who has a Westie, so hope she likes it and the second one is for her dog Alfie to give to her husband.  This is a photo of Alfie when he was a puppy that I used and I made the card using Craft Artist Professional, a completely flat card!  Hope you enjoy this blog and thank you for taking the time to look.
