Personalised Christmas Cards & A Thank You

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas, I did, even though I had a sickness bug from Christmas Eve which made me feel a bit rubbish on Christmas Day , however hubby then had to cook Christmas dinner, which was a nice change , fortunately for him I had already cooked the turkey and prepared all the veg the day before. Still he did a good job and didnt even moan about it , think I must have looked really bad!!
I had a few requests before christmas for some personalised cards , so I will post them all in one go before the New Year. The first one is four of the penguins from the set from Pink Petticoat put together , I quite liked having the 4 in a row like this .

And this one was for my friends hubby , which was my favourite as I love this pale turquoise colour I have to give credit for this layout to Jules at Always With a Heart , you can see her card here such a CAS layout but very effective , my card was done on a large 8x8 card by craftwork cards.
Hope you all have a fabulous night tonight if you are up to anything exciting, sadly my hubby is nightshift tonight so we will call him just after midnight, when he will be driving down a very quiet runway watching all the fireworks going off around Edinburgh.  

Also wanted to say THANK YOU to all my lovely followers for their lovely comments this year and I look forward to all your creations in the New Year....K xxx

The Blue Wicked Zumba Queen

I dont know if any of you get strange requests for cards but I get some really odd ones!, an xbox baby card, an engagement card with reference to the 9th hole at Turnberry and the latest was this one a blue wicked Zumba teacher!   I kept it simple with the sentiment the main focal point with the blue wicked bottle where the embellishments would go . The inside was also decorated a little too. With some bakers twine and a flower I didn't think it needed any more .

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday , I am not doing too much today as feeling a little tired after my works xmas do last night which didn't finish till 2am and it was 3.30 am before I was under the duvetdue to all the drop offs from the bus on the way home! 
Thanks for looking and all your comments are always appreciated .

Now I  am off to visit you as I have not had much of a chance this week....K xx

Tatty Ted

Boy was it freezing here today and I had promised to take kids to see Arthur Christmas on a rare afternoon off work but ended up on the sofa with a headache :-(. I have promised to take them on Sunday instead, better not let them down again , my daughter is so looking forward to it .   

Onto my card: A Tatty Ted die cut topper was used on this card , used my Nesties to cut out the comp printed sentiment , then left the Nestie in place while I inked the centre around the words, the paper was from my local craft shop and a bit ribbon and a punched butterfly finished it off .
Thanks for looking

My Gorgeous Great Niece Denni,Nappy cake & card

Was just tidying up my photos and realised I hadnt posted the card I made for my gorgeous niece Denni born in September on the same day that my twin nieces have their birthday , she was a bit early so we had to wait a week to see her as kids are not allowed in the hospital unless they are siblings , my daughter wouldn't allow me to go see her I before she could!!   Here is the card I made 

a wee side view with a glimpse of the inside
the image is from bugaboo and the papers are from craft creations , some velvet ribbon and and a few pearls on some punched flowers, the sentiment is LOTV .  Below is a picture of the nappy cake presented in a basket of baby goodies we gave her
and the wrapped version in the basket

She is just a wee cutie but the title Great Aunt makes me feel so old but then my sister in law is a granny 4 years younger than me!
Thanks for looking K x

One sheet does Plenty!

One sheet does Plenty !

Think I have gone a bit orange and red loopy with my snippets and I got a  little carried away, these are the rest of the cards made with just one 8 x 8 sheet of design paper by Craftwork Cards,I didn't waste any of this sheet, the only waste was the over cuts from the punched out shapes that were so tiny I couldn't punch out another butterfly or flower,  very thrifty!!

  so these will be my third entry into the Less is More Challenge and also for Jules Snippets
and here are some really didi 99 x 96 cards by Craftwork cards with the tiniest of snippets
And the last red & orange ones are here although I dont think this will be the last time I use these colours together as they are autumny ( is that even a word) but quite fresh and zingy too!
 now I am off to do a lovely card for my friends birthday on Friday

Less is More Challenge 40 Red & Orange & Snippets

Got a bit carried away with this once I got started as I had made one card with some orange paper then remembered that the Less is More challenge  40 challenge was red and orange so did one for that here
This was the original card that I had made with just orange which I cant make up my mind if I like
then I decided I would use up the whole sheet of paper which was 8 x8 and made the grand total of 13 cards from it (not including the card blanks ,I will post the rest later when I have photographed them, but her is another one using up some snippets so have decided it would qualify for Jules craft snippets challenge
I now try to use up my snippets for smaller simpler cards and put into packs of ten , as my scraps drawers are bursting at the seams and it is such a waste of beautiful papers.

Anyway enough of my ramblings off to see what you have all been up to and have a baby card to make 

love K xx

Cool Dude! and a Strange Request!

It was my lovely daughter Rhiann's 9th birthday yesterday so not had much time on here as I was organising her party etc , will post her card later.   

Have a couple of cards which I forgot to post, one for my nephew and this image is strangely very like him. The next card was a request for a tomboy 40th who plays xbox war games but loves pink!!! here is what I came up with......
I made a matching money wallet and envobox for it to go in which was not easy as it was larger than an 8x8 card. I think I covered the request my friend was happy with it anyway.  He has now asked me for a baby card with something x boxy on it ????? watch this space , you dont have get some funny requests when you make cards I had one last week for an engagement card with reference to the 9th hole at Turnberry as that was where he proposed! oh well happy to oblige! lol 

ok I,m off to visit you ........K xx

Card and handbag gift bag

Made this for my lovely cousin for her 40th , she loves black and white and I just love these papers from my local supplier, my friend at work makes jewellery so I got her to make a lovely crystal hair comb for her. I made a little gift bag to match to put it in.
I really wish I had taken a pic of the comb too but silly me forgot.

Its safe to post this now!

because her birthday is past.

This A4 card was commissioned to give to my cousin up north from her 2 SIL and her friends for her 40th birthday , the request was for pink, black and white, shoes, dresses or bags, bling, feathers and fun. I hope this fitted the bill , there was also a few other things I had to include and I put these on the inside, I made the box with a black lid to keep with the theme. Glad to say she loved the card, I will post the one I gave to her when I have downloaded the pics.
