Here are my first two cards of 2009! The first one is one I was asked to make for a lady who loves Mamma Mia! I didnt know what to do for this card really other than to use a picture or poster image. I've kept the card quite simple. I've used my brand new Stampin Up Scallop Punch which is brilliant! Before I used to cut all my scallopped edges by hand which was quite time consuming! I've used a couple of silk flowers and some papermania adhesive stones to finish. The sentiment is computer generated.This card was a bit of last minute card! I was asked to make it with only a day's notice! I had the idea in mind when I was asked to make it so it was quite a quick card, for me! I do tend to spend a bit too much time on one card! I've used the idea of cutting the numbers out of patterened paper a few times now and I really like the end result. I've used my scallopped border punch again here with some more adhesive stones.
I had a phone call from a lady today who took one of my flyers at the pre-school christmas fair, and she has asked me to make a card and candle gift set which I'm really pleased about. I think I'm finally getting back into the swing of things! Hopefully I can keep on track with all the blogs now and keep mine updated too!
