Good afternoon all. I made an 18th birthday card for my niece Jodie who is 18 tomorrow.
I'm not quite sure about this I had this great idea of threading all this ribbon and then I'm not sure if I'm very pleased with the result but have no more time so it will have to be ok!

The card is 8" square on black cardstock. I used Mini Monograms cricut card to cut middle suare with holes in. I then double threaded organza ribbon through all the holes (took ages lol) the backing paper and 18 are printed from Funky Hand CD 'Now That's Funky' and the 18 is cut using cricut and Plantin School cart. Black crytals added and a little key and corners rounded with a corner punch.

Thanks for looking

Should anyone visit my blog just wanted to say I'm new here so I haven't learned how to make my blog look pretty YET!!! LOL I will be trying though as I learn more!!!

My Mothers Day Card for My Wonderful MUM!

I made this card/book for my mum using cricut design studio and Plantin School cartridge. Pink and cream pearlescent card was printed on using Pink Petticoat CD and the letters were embossed with cuttlebug folder tiny bubbles. The card had four pages and was bound wth the Bind it All and ribbons added. Inside I printed verses and added punched flowers with adhesive pearls and some angels cricut cut from Joys of the Season cartridge and embossed the wings with cuttlebug embossing swirls folder. Hope you like it as much as my mum did!

For this card I designed the cocktail glass with cricut design studio software and Christmas Cheer cartridge and then cut with cricut using holographic mirri card. Crystals for the 'bubbles,' real cocktail stick and clear bubble sticker backed with red mirri card for the cherry. The black strip at the bottom is velvet paper and i put a little flip-flop charm around bottom of the glass just like a little glasscharm. Lastly I glittered across the top of the glass for the 'frosting'. Cheers greeting is computer generated. Hope you like it!

I made this card as the title says! I always struggle with mancards, girly cards are so much easier to make don't you think!

Anyway Michelle on the cricut MB is having a challenge for mens cards and very kindly talked me through being able to blog! To say I am computer challenged with all this uploading is an understatement! Give me a graphics programme and I'm ok ! So I've finally managed to upload a pic whoopee! So this is my card for Michelle's mancard challenge
