Michelle's birthday today

Today is the birthday of my golfing friend. Michelle, who left the UK
to live with her partner in Spain.
We have been out there and visited them a few times,
 have the odd chat on Facebook, and exchange Christmas
and Birthday cards.  Michelle is a crafter and when she live over here
we would have regular crafting sessions with various friends, most weeks.
Here's the birthday card I made for her.

Quick update

Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you all know that I am now home after two weeks in. Benalmadena Costa Del Sol as I am sure you must have been wondering why I haven’t been
visiting you for that time.
I am suffering with a horrid cold so haven’t done much at all, but hope to get back to normal
as soon as possible, looking forward to catching up with you all soon !

Upcycled Tag

This tag has been upcycled into a Thank you card for causes.
I think it started life off as a Training swap, but not sure from whom. 
But...  I am sure they will be pleased to know that its been
given a new lease of life!!

More Joyous Noel

You will very soon see that the Joyous Noel Speciality DSP
has become a firm favourite for featuring on this years Christmas cards.
Here's another card using these beautiful papers!

You can really see the copper foil catching the light on this one!!
I also used the Sprig Punch with White card and Copper Glimmer paper
on here, plus a couple of strips of Copper foil card.

Petal Promenade yet again!

If you think that this card looks familiar,
you have seen this design before -
Maggi and Ger's Anniversary card  was just the same.
What I did was use my Stamparatus to produce 4 cards 
with the same floral stamping on, then just changed the sentiment.

4 cards made in a fraction of the time!

Another Thank You card for causes

Here's yet another of the cards for causes that have been sent off 
to the Contact the Elderly Charity at the end of last month.

This is an upcycled Team swap
I cut the front of the card off
and  glued it onto a 7" x 5" card blank.
I then stamped  the From the Heart sentiment at the bottom.
Love the colours on this one!
