Valentines Cards/Get well Millie

Two posts in one day ladies, im doing well. However, this will be it till Friday as i have lots to get on with, and im behind already.

Wanted to post the cards i've made this week. Firstly this tilda card was made for a special little girl called Millie, who has been poorly. Hope your feeling much better now Millie. I love these papers which are from basic grey, the flowers are prima with a bead in the front. The leaves are a McGill punch. Ribbon from stash.

This is an anniversary card i made for a friend. I have had this alota image coloured for weeks, infact probably months, but couldn't decide how to use it till now. Have given this a kind of distressed look, at least that was the idea. Flowers are the retro punch with prima leaves. Image coloured using my pro markers. Ribbon from stash and the sentiment was printed on my computer.



VALENTINE CARDS
As most of you know i was struggling with my valentine cards but they are now done. Had a blitz monday and yesterday and here is the result:-

Loving the Elzybels valentine images, these bears are a dream to work with. Coloured using my pro markers. Sentiment printed, the heart is a die from Sissix, its part of the Sizzix love collection flourish die set.


Using one of the gorgeous Melinda images.



Another Elzybels bear, how cute, and these papers are from the Kaboodle downloads. I have to say these papers are great to work with.


And more Elzybels images using the cuttlebug cut and emboss folder for the hearts.


image coloured using pro-markers.

More papers from the kaboodle download site along with one of their love sentiments. Again the adorable Elzybels stamps!

Its that bear again! and more kaboodle papers.
More bears .....
and more .......

Bet you glad thats the last of the bears, these are a couple of simple cards using the free download on the Pollycrafts site. Again using the fabulous pro-markers, these images were a dream to work with.




Finally a very basic card, not my usual style, but trying to appeal to everyone!


So thats it, my valentine cards are done. At least thats all im doing for now. I still have some images coloured and waiting to be mounted but might use them for anniversary cards or for birthdays.
Hope you are all enjoying some sunshine today, its so lovely here. I have my babies sitting on my shoulder soaking up some of the suns rays. I am now off to stamp up those images that i've promised. Hope you all have a good day no matter what you are doing.
Speak soon, hugs Linda x

Good Morning everyone!

Firstly, I would just like to say how lovely your card designs are! I think you are really talented, I have tried to make my own greetings cards in the past, but to be honest, they just ended up looking like a total mess!I think I went a bit trigger happy with the old glitter glue! I really resent having to give my hard earned cash to those big greetings card companies, they charge so much money for cards! So until I have got the confidence to try making my own cards again, I think I may have found a great alternative solution! My friend Lizzy first introduced me to the world of electronic greetings about a year ago when she went back packing around Australia. She said she found it hard to write letters, and she didn't always have a mobile phone signal! So whenever she had the chance she would go into an internet cafe and send an e-Card. This method is such a great way to keep in touch with friends, and family. With Valentine's Day coming up I think it is a good way to just send a little surprise greeting. I have done my research, and tried out loads of different sites, but I have now finally found the best Free Valentine’s Day e-Card site for me. This site has both romantic, and funny, light hearted Valentine's Day e-Cards, so there is a card to suit everyone! E-Cards are not for everyone, but I think they are definitely worth a try! Just wanted to share my thoughts and findings with you all!Hope you find this useful! Warm wishes! Nicole.
