I made this card for a friend who is absolutely mad on Craftwork Cards stash - I just added my favourite character and the card was done!

I don't very often make cards using purple/lilac but after ending up with card, paper and embellishments in this colour (long story involving Mother in law, Christmas and an argument!) I thought I should try to use it. Floral decoupage isn't really my 'thing' either but I actually liked the end result so at least something good came out of the situation!

As soon as I saw this stamp I knew it would be perfect for my brother and other male family members. It's been coloured with Promarkers. The background paper is from Dovecraft Mens pad and I embossed the cardstock with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded it back to make the embossing stand out. Although you can't see it from the photo the 'froth' on the beer has been flocked to add some texture.

My daughter and I went to the Glitterpot today to do a card class with Graham Hansford using the Woodland Folk range of stamps and papers. I spent way too much time helping my daughter so I didn't actually get much made but it was fun just the same. Had a lovely spend in the shop afterwards which means my budget for the Make It Farnborough show is now zero.
I made this birthday card for a friend who also happens to be big the local allotment association The card had a shrink plastic keyring attached which makes a lovely little gift. It's been a long time since I've played with my Jolly Nation stuff so it made a pleasant change!
