This is a 5x7 card and printed out on mat paper and keeping the vintage look. I have only added the think heart and a brush of cross stitch as i want it for a man card , I hope you like it.

wings and legs

Made a diamond card this week on white card and layered and mated, the paper is from the Embossibilities Elegance CD, added some ribbon and the card mount, tryed the promarkers but not the right colour so i went over it with colorbox cat's eyes , used thistle , it looks glossy in pic but now it's dryed out it is a nice chalky finish and i added a couple of ribbons. the stamp is a digi called Noon from Crafts and me and i just love this so pretty. I hope you like it. I am entering it in two challenges this week at wings and legs at CD Sunday challenge blog and at Ribbons and bows at Totally paper crafts

mardi gras

This is a 12x12 scrap page made in craft artist, background and images are from the net, they have been taken into cutout studio and photo shop. Decided to do a scrap page as i don't have a stamp that would be suitable, but i have just remembered a cd i have that i will be able to do a card with if i have time. Anyway i hope you like this effort to be entered into Mardi Gras challenge over at Rainbow lady's challenge blog.
