Friendship Card

My friendship card finally arrived at it's destination.
I think that it must have flown around the world a few times
 as it took many weeks to arrive.

I love the beautiful hanging basket pattern by Ann's Paper Art, a688 
it can be used for many occasions. It is a very useful pattern to have.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0546 & 5846.
The beautiful die cut hearts and butterfly along the top is by Joy! 600/0404.
I filled the basket with flowers using Memory Box, Small Hydrangea Blooms.
 Leaves are Cheery Lyn B178 , I added a little gold along the edge.
Across the Miles stamp by Lili of the Valley the circles were die cut
 with Nellie Snellen mfd055.
Spellbinder Borderbilities S5-181.
Pearls, distress ink, butterflies and hobbydots have also been added.

I had loads of fun creating this card and I hope that you also like it.

Thank-you for coming by and looking at My Craft Cupboard.

Birthday Card

This week our son Michael celebrated his birthday.
I decided to create him a card with the Forever Friends decoupage as 
I know that most men desire to have a red sports
I thought that it would be perfect for him.

The pattern is from Ann's Paper Art, Stitching Sheet book #12, a065 
which is available from Ann's Paper Art webshop.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0020, 0851, 1514, 2674.
I created the bricks with my new design folder by Marianne Design DF3404
 which were coloured with distress ink.
"Happy birthday" stamp and "Country Gent" pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley.
The swirled edge is from Spellbinders "Borderabilities" S5-180.

I enjoyed creating this card for our sons birthday and he was 
thrilled to bits when he opened it.

Thank-you for coming by and looking at My Craft Cupboard.
