Bookatrix for a 90th Birthday

My friend Hilary's mum asked me to make her a card for a gentleman she knows who is gonna be 90 yrs young next week, and who has a passion for music and Pianos.

I used the Bookatrix from the Glitter Girls, the box was made using the Illusions board from the Glitter girls card stock from Crafters Companion, the plate stand template was from Scrapbookingmad.com and all other bits and bobs were from my craft stash.

Wendy's Live challenge.

I made 2 cupcake cards for Wendys live craft challenge on Friday. I am quite pleased how these turned out as i've never done these before. I love doing them and would likely do some more.

This sketch was created by our guest designer Beccy. Well done Beccy in producing the is fab sketch and thank you for taking part in being a guest designer for Crafters Companion Blog.

This is my take on the sketch.

I used a Pyramage image from the Crafters Companion Birthday Popcorn cd,I also used some pretty pink spotted organza ribbon, some Pink Prima paper flowers, an embossed card cut down to fit on the Pink cardstock and some pink flatbacked gems.

Hope you like my creation

Sorry guys for not posting a bit more regular, I have not been well for a few days and i'm still not feeling 100%. I am full of a cold, bunged up and quite chesty, not to mention I have this whopping sore throat, that when i wake in the mornings, i've got no voice. My hubby says at least I can't snap at him until i get it back...:-(

Anyway, I'm hoping to be back to my normal self soon and will be back blogging again.

Take care
