One for the boys and one for the girls

Well doesnt time fly? where did that weekend go... monday evening already lol well, i'm just popping on to post a couple of quick makes i made the weekend

First one is from La Pashe printed from "The Big One " cd you can find the details of the cd rom right about.... Here! but if you prefer paper crafting you'd better check out these gorgeous papers Over here! and check out the fabulous sale prices STILL available!..absolutely love these images!!. This one i had a little play with, i needed my background a little larger for the card i was doing so for the background i copied and flipped the background and joined together to make the garden look bigger ;) then just chose the front part of the gardener to decoupage!  and ...voila! one funky gardener card
I then added some glossy accents to the top o the pint! to finish off 
Then... I fancied doing something abit girlie, for a friend who asked me to make something pretty for a close friends 40th birthday. so i had a flick through my many cds (only 200 plus..ish..ssshhhh dont tell the hubby!...its not my fault!! they are very addictive) and found the perfect image.
this is called the "Morning Glory Fairy" It is an image painted By Linda Ravenscroft, i printed the image and all the little extras from the "A Touch Of Magic" Cd Rom 
I chose to make a Pyramage card, used a faded background of the same image, Popped the sentiment onto some matching paper and to finish off some pearl pins pink ribbon, mini pearls and added some beautiful glitter to her wings
I would love to know if you like my little makes, so please stop and drop me a message, well i'm off to craft some more so untill i post again... i bid you farewell! happy crafting :) xxx

Pickles & Podge- Mothers Day

Well good evening one and all.... its finally here first card to be put on my lovely new blog!!! woo hoo! i am so happy to be blogging AT LAST :) this lovely image is from the pickles and podge range and you can find it on the "The Best of La Pashe" Cd rom. and perfect to start off my mothers Day cards. I have printed the image, and decoupage on the lovely new papers from la Pashe, I've used the 160gsm decoupage paper that is "oh so oober smooth and silky! and beautiful to cut! for the background I've simply enlarged the image, faded and cropped it, then popped on my sentiment and backed on to some pretty pink card. I've taken the matching backing paper from the cd and the decoupaged image and matted both those onto the same pink card, die cut a lovely matching flourish, then added some paper roses, deep pink ribbon and a couple of pearl pins to finish...oooh and of course the compulsory GLITTER! :)Hope you like it! and would love to know what you think! I love these cute bears and have printed off a few more different this space and more will be popping up in the next couple of days... Nicole xx
