Friendship Card

Well what a week, what with the weather, and being ill most of the week, I haven't got much to show , but I did manage to make a card for the friendship swap over on Docrafts. I saw that papercraft essentials mag, had some cute whimsy stamps as the free gift, and just loved one of the sentiments, so had to buy it, and here is the card I made

Papers are First Edition 'summer breeze'

Anniversary card

Well they say things come in 3s, and after having to buy a new computer monitor, on Mon morning we had no power to all the electric sockets upstairs, so we had to call out an electrician, who i'm glad to say found the fault, and got power back on, but as it was a bank holiday, cost an arm and a leg, then had problems with phone line, luckily I sorted that with no expence, but all in all a very expensive week. Anyway on to crafty things, here is a card for our daughter and sil, who are celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary tomorrow,

The image and backing paper are from a MCS CD
Embossing folder is Cottage Floral from craft concepts

Panic Over

Happily surfing the web on Weds, looking at craft sites of course, when all of a sudden, a black screen, couldn't sort it out, and had to turn computer off by unplugging, not good. So trip to computer shop, and after 2 days got a call to say it couldn't be mended, big panic, till he told me it was only the monitor that had a fault, and it would be cheaper to buy a replacement, than fix it, but he couldn't get me a replacement till next Weds. Well as I had cards to finish, and needed to print some papers, not good, but a trip to Argos  last night, got me sorted , and i'm up and running again, and here is one of the cards that I finally finished this morning.
It's for the birthday of a friend, who has fireworks at most of his parties, so thought this image would be appropriate.
Image is Newton Bear coloured with copics, found background paper on internet, added bakers twine and a button.

I am entering it in the following challenges
