I know I don't make cards.....but...



Hey everyone.  I know, I always say that I don't make cards........and looking at this card, its pretty obvious that I don't, lol.  But I needed a couple of thank you cards and thought I'd have a bash at making them myself.  They are very simple because I'm completely rubbish at making cards but I like plain and simple cards.  So this is what I came up with.

I'm meeting up with my wee matey, Maddy Madster today (Ooooo get me with my alliteration ) ......YIPPEEEE!  You all know Maddy, from her Blog Izzwizz Creations and if you don't....click HERE.  So we are meeting up to have a good aul natter and try to set the world to rights, lol.  All we need is some double sided tape and a good pair of scissors and that'll sort out the world's problems, heehee.  

Anywhoodles, here is my attempt at card making......very simple card making, lol.

I used the butterfly Tonic punch and punched out one butterfly from a blue vellum and the top butterfly is actually a piece from a wallpaper sample.  I love going to B&Q and getting a few wallpaper samples.  Its great stuff to craft with and the paper quality is fabulous and thick.  Obviously due to Copyright Laws I wouldn't advise anyone using wallpaper samples in anything you sell.  But certainly using it for personal use shouldn't be a problem.  I then took a paint brush and brushed on stickles to add a bit of sparkle to the butterfly.
This is a Timmy Holtz stamp.  I love this sentiment.  I also used 2 gold line peel off's to border the stamped image and help make it pop a bit more. 
Isn't that music note stamp just beautiful?  Its from one of my very favourite stamp companies, Crafty Individuals.  I LOVE their stamps.  In fact I love all their products.  If you want to buy this particular stamp which is a whopping 75mm x 90mm, click HERE.  If you fancy taking a look at Crafty Individuals wonderful stamps and products, click HERE or for their Blog click HERE.  Just so you know, I am not linked to Crafty Individuals in any way, I just think they are a fabulous company with beautiful products and incredible customer service too.
That's it from me for another wee while folks.  Its my Birthday this month.....I'll be 33.....AHHHHHH!  So I will be putting together a wee Giveaway soon, so keep an eye out for that.

  21. Hello! This is really beautiful, I don't know why you always say you don't do cards as every time you post a card it's lovely, in my opinion clean and simple cards are the most difficult ones to make. I hope you are well
