Cards... and more cards...

Hi fellow boggettes... thought I would share this card which I made at a class I attended this afternoon.  Lots and lots of glitter was used for this Ferris Wheel and the first time that I've used flocking... which is on the candy floss.  I quite like this (smile).


Then I came home and started working on some cards I've been commissioned to make for a friend of mine. She's a plain Jane and so I'm trying to keep her cards as simple as possible, trying out a new look.  Hope you like them...

And the other one...

Don't you just love that floral stamp.  It's a local South African one which I found at Charmaine's and I just love the simplicity thereof. Will be using this a lot.  I've used some glaze on the flowers which you unfortunately can not pick up on these pic's.  The flowers were punched out and made by myself.  Cuttle bugged a few sheets of white paper using the Swiss Dots, which I love so much.

Would love to hear your comments, thanks for popping by, you really make my DAY when you do! 

I'm off to collect my sister from the Airport tomorrow, she's coming to visit for 2 weeks and will be spending her birthday here which is on 6th May.  Haven't seen her in about 5 years, so we've a lot of catching up to do.  Not sure how much crafting I'll get done... but I'll make a plan somehow.

Happy crafting everyone... hugs Sharon x

Sharon, First, enjoy your sister. My brothers and I will go years in between seeing each other, and I am always amazed how much they have aged, for I stay looking the same!!! LOL! I love the Ferris Wheel with the 3D effect! And, the other cards are simple and yet so sophisticated...love them and the colors you used!

Hello Sweeite ! Well you have been busy ! I love your three cards, it shows how different cards can be ! I must say I am going through a phase of more plain and simple cards so I just adore the ones you made with the little flowers, they look stylish and elegant... Hope you will have a fantastic time with your Sis ! Enjoy every minute of it, I wish I could spend some time with mine too ! Hugs and smiles from Catherine
