I made these little Easter notes to go in the Easter bags that I made for my children.  I got them a felt bag each.  My daughter got a Pink Bunny and my son a Yellow Chick.  I then filled them with a Kinder Egg each, a couple chocolate carrots, a bag of Easter Haribo's and a little toy chick, one pink, one blue.  They went down very well.  The images I used are from Meljens Designs and coloured with Promarkers.

Anniversary Cards

This anniversary card was made for a very good friend of mine, who was celebrating her 10th year of marriage.  Her partner isnt the spontaneous type always and I wanted to make sure that she had at least one card, even if it was from me lol. Lets face it, us girls celebrate these occasions more then the men sometimes.

I used a Tiddlyinks image called You and Me Baby.  I used background paper from my wedding collection stash and embellishments that I picked up from a craft fair.  The flowers are from Hobbycraft.

Kirsty and Nicks Wedding

In November 2014 a very good friend of mine got married and this is the card that I made for her and her husband.

The papers are from a 12x12 Wedding collection I have, the frame around the image is from my Silhouette machine, aswell as the hearts.  There are silk flowers layered one ontop another and using a glitter star brad, a heart embellishment and glitter letters of their initials.  In one of the flowers I used a brad with the letter 'L' to honor of her son Lucas.  The sentiments are from a collection that I inherited, not sure where exactly they are from.

The image is from Tiddlyinks and is absolutely gorgeous, I love this image and I coloured in the dress with a silver glitter pen.
