I want to acknowledge the fantastic work she does & her commitment to Love Letters & this is what I came up with.
I've layered the white card which has been embossed with my Cuttlebug "Hearts" folder & been wrapped with yellow grosgrain ribbon, onto the bright yellow base card & then layered another yellow/white panel onto that. The image is a sticker from the cute "Suzy's Zoo" range & tiny mulberry flowers & self adhesive rhinestones have been added to accent.
I seem to have a real LOVE of rhinestones right now!
Smiles, Tracey :D
Well here I am finally with another post on my poor, neglected blog! In spite of not updating this for a while I have been busily making cards to sell at my craft stall & also a few to send to "Love Letters" in the USA as you can see in the above photo :D
Love Letters: Random Cards of Kindness, Inc. was founded by a young woman named Kaitlyn Chana & volunteers from all over the world make cards to be given to children with life-threatening illnesses. I try & send an envelope of cards every 3-4 months & get a real buzz knowing that they are going to be given away to a sick child & hopefully bring a little bit of sunshine into their life in the process :D
I make each card using various embellishments/decorative items from my stash ~ anything from wrapping paper pictures; fabric cutouts; Cuttlebug words; stickers........ just whatever takes my fancy really!
If you ever have any cards that you are looking to donate to a great cause, pop on over to the Love Letters website ~ www.LoveLettersCares.com ~ & read more about how you can become a volunteer :D
Help bring smiles to a child with a random card of kindness! :D :D

Here's the card I made to send to Margie with my RAK package.
The layout I've used is one of my favourites :D
I layered bright pink card which I embossed with my Cuttlebug Hearts folder onto plain white cardstock, then added a strip of white card embossed with "Swiss Dots". The image I've used is a sticker from the "Suzy's Zoo" range & then I've added bright pink mulberry paper flowers & silver self adhesive rhinestones to finish.

Here's the card I've made for my DH. It took me a wee while to get the design/colour combo sorted but once I got started, everything just seemed to fall into place thankfully!
Making "blokey" cards has always been a challenge for me as I seem to struggle with ideas/inspiration for them so all in all, I'm pretty happy with this creation :D
I've layered the red base card with a black panel & white Cuttlebug embossed "Happy Birthday" strip & the smaller black/white panel has been attached with foam pads to give it a raised finish.
The Vintage car peeloff has been put onto acetate & then I've cut around the car & added foam pads before adhering peeloff dots to the corners, alphabet beads & self adhesive rhinestones.
I hope Murray likes it!

The card I made for her was based on the Mojo Monday Sketch #77 design & I've used a brown base card & pastel pink panels layered with a white Cuttlebug embossed panel (Swiss Dots) & plain white panel with a stamped & coloured Penny Black image (kickin').
I've coloured the image using a mix of watercolour pencils & Tombow brush markers then added self adhesive light pink rhinestones to finish.
The sentiment has been made using my favourite Stampin' Up scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch & silver peelcraft "With Love" stickers.
I really enjoyed taking part in the RAK swap & if you would like to join in too, the details can be found on Tracy's blog ~ tracyshappyplace.blogspot.com :D

I really enjoyed this week's sketch & had fun making this card even if it's taken me just about the whole week to get together!! Life has been kind of busy on the home front & I didn't think I was going to get this done in time so I'm pretty happy that I have :D
The base card is one of my all time fave colours (Plover Purple) which I've then layered with white. The panels are made of the same Plover Purple/White combo & I've embossed one using my Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder & adhered some of the cute stickers from the "Suzy's Zoo" range to the other. Mulberry paper flowers & purple self adhesive rhinestone embellishments have been added to finish.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog :D

As the majority of the cards I make at the moment are ones which I sell at a craft stall I share with a friend, I find I usually end up making certain popular designs over & over again & spend very little time developing new layouts so making my card for this challenge has been quite a step outside of my comfort zone.
I discovered the Friday Sketchers blog while blog surfing a few weeks ago & after having a look at last weeks sketch decided it was "now or never" to give one a go so here it is!
The base card is black & I've layered it with two white triangles ~ one of which I've embossed using the Cuttlebug "Script" embossing folder. The image & text panels are a combination of black, pastel pink & white layers embellished with die cuts/peelcraft lettering & then I've added four light pink self adhesive rhinestones to finish :D

The draw closes on Tuesday 17th February at 09.00 GMT.

I look forward to sharing some of my crafty creations & hope they may inspire others as much as I have been inspired (& continue to be inspired!) by fellow bloggers creations.
This card is one I made for a friend's birthday recently & as she is a "Red Hat Society" member I thought it would suit her perfectly :D
The base card is Plum then layered with lavender & outlined with peeloff border stickers. Betty Boop is a fabric motif which I've adhered to double sided adhesive (Jac) paper & then cut out & added to the card & then used peeloff "Happy Birthday" wording to finish.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog & I look forward to sharing more of my creations soon :D
