A couple of cards for a couple of Challenges

…I just had to have a play with me prizes didn’t i…..:) I played with the 2 stamps from the hoppy Easter collection.*That one with the lamb is gorge*

This weeks challenge over at JUST MAGNOLIA was to make a tent card. (I‘ve mad loads of these in the past…but never as a card…I’ve done them as calendars and flip photo albums, You do this by creating the base the same way, then create your pages slightly smaller,then you punch through the 2 top sections of your ‘thing’ with your BIA and attach all your pages using the BIA binding wires,then your pages will flip over the top from front to back)

So fo me this is the 1st time i’ve used this idea as a card.

This ‘card’ is very girly and pretty.The pics arent so good as i forgot that the flash was on…lol *Don’t like using flash’

Just had to create a sentiment to ‘go with’ didn’t i… Was gonna put ‘Tilda had a little lamb…lol  The large flower was made by me *Which you can make yourself following me tutorial*


I used glossy accents on tilda’s flowers and ‘Bo peep…or whatever she is called’ Tilda’s bows,but ya can’t really see it in the pics.

Images coloured with distress inks …LUBS them:) Paper – Blossomhill *Papermania*

Pearls,flowers & ribbon from stash

Also used circle and scollap nesties.

I thought that the image and sentiment would also go FAB for a baby girl card,all pink and cute and girly…lol


I decided to do this one differently ,and did the image as a ‘door thingy’ that opened to reveal the verse inside.

I covered tilda’s dress and the likkle lamb in glitter…it looks so sparkly,the pics just haven’t picked it up :(

I also decorated the reverse side very simply with a baby verse, and a little raffia bow…..oh…and some pearls…lol

These cards are also for the following challenges :)







6 challenges…wow! Am getting good at this multi challenge milarky…lol
