We had taken a few photos and I thought it would nice to make her a Maze book as an extra gift.
I have used a selection of printed papers from the various Craft Cds that I have.
I also used lots of girly peel off stuck to mirror card as embellishments.
Next 4 pages underneath this posting
I did enjoy making the maze book, and hope to make another in the near future.

This weeks challenge was to make a card with a weather theme, I have had this image saved to my PC for a long time, and felt it would be ideal for this challenge.
I used scrapbooking paper from my stash, Printed the image and put a bit of clear glitter pen over parts to highlight.
Then matted the words, Better watch my Hat.
I have done my own Sketch challenge below if anyone would like to have a go

It also works for the DCM Friday Challenge, This week we had to make a card with Women as the main theme.
I have used Red pearlescent card, The image came from Joanna Sheens Victorian Romance CD ( I think this CD has become a favourite of mine over the last week) I then added a Photo of Brother and sister-in-law when they got married, also one that is a bit more recent. Some nice rose backing paper also from JS cd, and a nice bright red feather tucked behind a love tag. I made a floral bouquet for the front of the picture.this was then finished with a red ribbon to tie everything closed.
I still have the box to finish Its drying as I type.
This card is done using the envelope template. I do like this template it makes some nice simple quick cards.
I was asked to not make this card to soppy by the couples daughter, and also to put a funny verse inside.
this is the verse it made me laugh.
Scientists have discovered that the longer people stay married, the more they begin to look alike. You better start putting name tags in your underwear !
