Here is the last of my 'Calendar' cards! I chose a cream base card and placed peach card which I had used my corner punch on and delighted with the results! I then zig-zaged around some dark orange and red swirls paper and also cut around the calendar topper too. The orange flowers match very well with that paper. I added a brown butterfly which has an amber stone on it.
The caption says:- 'A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows' - St. Francis of Assisi.
This one is a cream base card again and has a pale turqouise card placed on top to which I added a flowery turqouise/blue ribbon at the top and bottom.
I placed the Lady topper from the Kanban range called 'Alice' on foam pads and added a blue dragonfly gem. I then cut out with zig-zag scissors a sentiment from the same set which says: 'Nothing is so Strong as Gentleness, Nothing is so Gentle as Real Strength.
I love the picture of this dog with all the washing on the floor!! lol
It is from a freebie set called 'Hot Diggity Dog' by Andrea Jayne that I got from CardMaking & Papercraft magazine! They are really nice quality and so cute!
I placed the topper on the blue spotted paper which also came with the set which I cut around with my trusty wavy scissors. I then cut out a blue piece of card with zig-zag scissors and placed on it, a sticker saying 'Have A Great Day!' in silver. I also added a little turqouise tag with a flower on in the left top corner.
Here I used a pale blue base card and again used my 'Hot Diggity Dog' paper and topper as before - I've quite a few of these as you will see shortly!! lol
This time I used a pink, blue, green stripe paper and the topper shows two dogs in the bath with a puppy in the middle! I also used the sentiment that came with the set saying 'Happy Birthday'. I also placed a raised plastic sticker in mint green with a pink flower on it. These cards are so easy peasy to make!
I used a cream base card that has a lovely fluted edge cut out on the front. I placed a yellow card and then the Diggity Dog topper which shows him watching a hopping frog!!
I placed a gold and white sticker with 'Have A Great Day!' on the bottom and then added two little embellishments in each top corner one with a butterfly on and the other is a yellow card with a flower on which has a white gem in the middle to finish it off.
I also made a card for my brother Pete and his wife Jean's Anniversary and as I was in a hurry to post it so it will get there in time, I forgot to take a photo of it - and it was really nice too!! I'd used some lovely dark purple card which had raised gold roses embossed on it and I cut around it with wavy scissors. I then added a little turquoise wheelbarrow full of little paper flowers some of which had gems on and a matching little door with flowers all around. I then stamped 'For You Both' in Silver and then added some turqoise embossing powder and then used my brand new heat gun to set it! I also added a gold banner with 'Happy Anniversary' in the middle of the card. I was really pleased with how it turned out and could kick myself for not taking the photo!
