I made a set of notelets, again following the style of mish mash at http://michellewooderson.blogspot.com/. I used Verve Visual's petals & stems set for the flower and stamped with pink brilliance ink, which gives a stunning effect. The pink cs is from the papermill shop and the black cs is bazzill. I made 5 notelets and matching envelopes and a pouch to house them all in. The black velvet ribbon was tied around the pouch and just slides off to allow access. The small sentiment on the pouch is also by Verve Visual. Hope you like. Thanks for looking. Apologies for the really poor photograph showing the notelet itself (typical eh!).
A friend at work asked me to make her a keepsake card for her daughter's 30th birthday. She wanted a large A4 card (and just as well as I needed the room to fit in all the photos). The dp I used was from a 12x12 stack that I bought ages ago from QVC, the plain pink cs was from the papermill shop and the black cs was bazzill. I used prima sprites flowers on the front page with adhesive stones in the centre, other flowers from my stash. The pink letters and numbers are stickers by making memories and I used my pc for the sentiment. The ribbon was from my stash and was adhered behind the front photograph and back verse to enable the card to tie closed. My friend was so pleased she cried!! Thanks for looking.

This is my entry for the stamp something challenge which has a sketch to follow. I used plain pink cs from the papermill shop, black bazzill cs, and pink dotty dp, but as I used the last piece I can't remember who makes it. I received the image from Tracy at Ella Bella, I think ;) and I coloured it (badly) with my marvy markers and highlighted the cupcake with stickles. The black gems are by papermania and the pink ribbon is by dovecraft. The rub-on (quite hard to see on the ribbon) is by pebbles inc. I also made a matching notepad, not in the challenge but I like making them and added flowers from my stash, a gem brad and velvet ribbon by dovecraft. I used the 99p alphabet stamps by studio g for the wording. Thanks for looking.

I was asked to make christening cards for a brother & sister who were getting christened on the same day. I used teddy bear die-cuts, as I thought they were suitable for a 4 year old (boy) and 6 month old (girl). On the boy card I used light blue cs from the papermill shop and dark blue bazzill cs and plain white cs which I cut with my scallop scissors. I used a tiny scrap of DCWV glitter stack dp and my pc for the sentiment. For the girl card I used my gorgeous new DCWV blossoms and butterflies glitter dp, plain pink cs again from the papermill shop, white organza ribbon and papermania adhesive stones. Thanks for looking.

Anyway onto the cards! These are the cards I made for my husband, dad and father-in-law. They are all really basic as none of them are really interested in cards (even if they're mine - shock horror!). It did make other father's day cards for work but forgot to photograph them before I took them in!! If you need any more details please let me know. Thanks for looking.
The second pic shows runner-up candy that I received from Shelley at http://minkiespaperparadise.blogspot.com. She sent me a lovely handmade card, loads of stamped images from Penny Black, Pink Petticoat images, ribbon, background papers and sequins (which I forgot to photograph - d'oh!). I was gobsmacked by how much she sent, considering this was only the runner-up candy, I can't even imagine what she sent the winner :). Thank you so much Shelley.

For the second card I used a stamping bella image (again kindly from Tracy at Dies to Die For), watercoloured with marvy markers. I added stickles to her hair and coffee cup and used a sakura white glaze pen for the dots on her chair . The sentiment is by stampendous and the dp is by american crafts. The plain blue cs is bazzill. I added a few papermania adhesive stones for added bling. Thanks for looking.

These are three cards that I made for my dad's birthday. The footballer card is from me and my husband, the robot card is from my children and the wolf is from my mum to my dad. The cards are all very simple but I think they turned out ok. The footballer stamp is by creative expressions, the robot stamp is by papermania and the wolf stamp is by rubber stampede. The dp on the footballer stamp is by craft creations, the dp on the robot card is from the matching paper pack and the dp on the wolf card is by imagination project. The cardstock is bazzill bling and I used my pc for the sentiments. Sorry for the long post, thanks for looking.

This was made for a friend in work who hasn't been feeling too good lately. I used a penny black stickeroo and the sentiment is by studio g. The DP was a small scrap that I had lying on my desk and I can't remember who it is by (sorry!). The glittery chipboard flowers are by craftime. Thanks for looking.
