As Promised!!!

As promised here are the cards I was doing on Wednesday for my best friend who wanted cards for her mum.  The Boutique card is from Hunkydorey (I think thats right!!!) which I bought from creat and craft.  I don't usually buy cards that you are pre-made and all you do is copy, but I got these last year as they were on sale and I like the look of them.  I could't just make them up as told (its not my crafty style I like to mess with bits lol), I fancied up the dresses and the woman, put a vase of flowers on the table (flowersoft) and on the back (forgot to take photo doh!!!) I made a pocket and a tag which could be written on.

The other card was from the grandchildren.  Both cards Fiona chose (she likes to have a snoop and play in my craft room lol) the main basis, so the above card was pretty straight forward.  The next card was a little more challenging, she wanted me to use a image from the Honey and Hugs by Papermania Docrafts.  We then came up with the idea of putting her childrens hand prints on it.  I should have considered the whole colour of the card before I grabbed her some paint before she went which happend to be bright pink/cerise.  Here is what I came up with .......

I'm afraid I only had time to take quick photos before she picked them up.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and hope you all have a crafty weekend.

Hi Kezzy. These are beautiful cards. The first one is very elegant and I love what you have done with the handprints on the second card. I love the little spaces for the children to write their message. This would be lovely kept and framed. Hope your daughter is feeling better and enjoy your weekend. Donna

These cards are gorgeous. I love the handprints, what a great idea. I was so sorry to hear how poorly your daughter has been, it must be a worrying time for you and not very nice for her either. I hope she gets better really soon and you get some more crafty time.
