Another Little Card!!

Here's another card that I made.  I needed to make a simple card to say thank you to someone and decided to use some of the new Marianne flowers and swirl dies I have recently bought as they are so pretty!

Here's the card

I think I am going to be making good use of these dies!!!!

Rocker Card

I've finally got around to finishing the rocker card that I made using the template in my previous post! 

I really like the shape and of course the fact that it rocks when stood up.  I just need to find a 5 x 8 inch envelope for it now!

Here's my card

Do let me know if you've managed to use the template, would love to see your cards.

Rocker/Wobbler Card Template

Having recently seen some lovely rocker/wobbler cards that have been made from kits I thought I'd do a template so I could make my own.

You will need to print it out and place it on the fold of you card and cut around so that it's equal both sides of the card.  You may have to resize the template to suit your own needs.

It's a very rough template but hopefully it might help someone!

Now it's up to you to embellish it as you so wish!! I'd love to see your rocker cards, you can post a link to them under this post!! I'll be posting mine up when it's finished to show you how I got on!!

Thanks for looking!

Thank You........

Just like to say a big thank you to everyone that sent me their thoughts and wishes following the death of my Auntie.  It really meant alot to me to read them and know that you were all thinking of me.

The funeral is on Thursday and I'm not really looking forward to that.

Once again thanks for your support......

Taking a bit of a break

Just wanted to say to all of my followers that I will be taking a short break from my blog.  I have just lost my lovely Auntie Carol to cancer and to say I am devastated is an understatement.   Although we knew she was very ill, it was a still a huge shock when she passed away this morning. 

I'll be back though so please stay following me.
