Happy Birthday Kerry

Good Morning,

It's nearly the weekend, yippee!

Thought I would share a card with you today that I made for my friend at work.
She loves owls and was really taken with the laser cut background when she see a card I made for my blogging buddy Debs at the beginning of the month.

All bits were cut on the cameo in kraft card & First Edition Boho Chic papers. Before assembling the owl I inked the edges of all pieces and curled the wing to add the sentiment to. 
Kerry (that's my friends name) was absolutely thrilled with it and plans to make it into a fridge magnet (might make some to sell at the fund raiser). Thanks for the idea Kerry!

Have a great weekend!

Gorjuss Best Friends

Good Morning my Lovelies,

I was browsing through my digi folders last week and found this little beauty that I have never printed off. I used my cameo to print and cut the image & to cut the butterfly & mats.

The butterfly was cut in two layers, One solid in red & a filigree one in white which I glittered before layering up and adding a gem to the body. 

The image was coloured with Copics and (the photo doesn't show it) glamour dust. Before adding the image I did a bit of doodling round the edges. Finally a  papermania sentiment was stamped, matted  and added. I was quite pleased with the CAS outcome, hope you like!

Have a lovely Day!

Things With Wings @ Dream Valley

Good Afternoon my lovely crafty friends,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I had a bit of a sort out of my stock boxes as I have been asked if I would be willing to let someone sell my cards at a fund raiser for Cynthia Spencer, a local hospice. Before the event thought I had better get my stock boxes in order so made some divers with labels on which I print & cut on the cameo. Oh how I love my cameo!

new challenge is under way today and we would like to see your creations with wings on them. Be that butterflies, fairies or an insect, anything with wings.

This fortnights challenge is being sponsored by Crafts and Me who let the DT have a digi with wings on to play with. I had a play with this little sweetie called Poppy

Papers - K & Company 'Addison'
Colouring mediun - Pro & Copic Markers, a touch of chalk & lots of glitter
Sentiment - cut on cameo & glittered

Please hop on over to the main challenge blog for some fabby samples from the talented DT
