Just Christmas and Birthday Cards DT Call

DT Call at the lovely Just Christmas and Birthday Cards....They are looking for 3 more designers to go with the rest of their lovely team.. so I have thrown caution to the wind and thought.. Go For It!  You never know till you try do you!

They have asked for two cards that you are most pleased with.. and no doubt like everyone else..this is where the struggle comes in!  My first card below is yes just one card, but a Memory Card that I made for my lovely God-mother to give to her mother who was 100!

Sadly at the time when I photographed it.. I never thought I would use it for a chance to get on a DT... so not the best of photography!

Obviously the front...  but the second picture I know I did stood up like that so I could show the back and front together.  I sent these photos to my God-mother to see if she liked it.  All the photographs are of her mother through her years and the verse if you click on the pictures is beautiful... I know I should say.. but I did write that for her too.
Sadly I didn't take a photo of the lovely envelope that I made for it.. I lined it and decorated it too.

Just wanted to put this up... this is Newty as I have always called her now.. taken on her 101st Birthday... isn't she stunning!  

Now for my second card.. ooo this is hard... but I think I have to go for one that I made recently..

If you want to read up on this one.. it is all posted HERE... 

Well lastly.. thanks for looking.. and good luck to all those that are apply :)

Wish me luck lol......

Oh Nooooooo

I made these two little cards.. yes they may seem rather plain.. but I made the backing papers for them... and I am so pleased with them...  but can I find a challenge to show them off with.. nope.. not yet anyway...

But oh well..  here they are...

This really cute image came from Pollycraft... one of her freebies..

I thought the papers I made went really well... I had coloured the images already then thought.. Mmm what paper.. let's make them lol..

If you like them.. email me and I will be more than happy to send them to you!

Wow Impressed!

I know that I should not be impressed with myself.. but I am...!!

Taking the FREEBIE Backing Paper I made.. I printed that off... then put the paper (well I used cream card) back in the printer and then printed the Freebie Tag over the top of it!  Came out like a dream!  

But I didn't stop there.. with cutting out I was left with such tiny scraps of printed paper and I do hate waste... I got all my little punches out.. flowers, butterflies and swirls and punched away... I now have loads.. and seeing as the paper is multi coloured .. it will go with loads of things... 

Give it a go!

FREEBIE - Backing Paper

Well I am into giving FREEBIES at the moment aren't I!!  

If you would like this backing paper (without my name printed all over it of course! ) please leave me a comment so I know where to go to find your email address and it will be sent direct to you in pdf format.  Maybe you would also like to become a follower and keep up with the FREEBIES to come!

Happy Crafting and don't forget to link back to me when you have done your creation as I would love to see it in good use... Thanks for looking!

FREEBIE - Tags...

Ok.. another night that I am awake.. so thought I would make up some tags.... always handy to have around this time of year.  When wrapping up the Christmas pressies... or popping on a card...

Great for those of us who don't have the large tag punches.. I do have one... but I don't always want the same shape!

Why not print off on your card a pattern of your choice then put the card back in the printer and print this sheet off... and hey presto.. all you have to do is cut and decorate how you like.

Please if you do take a copy.. please leave me a message.. I would also like to see what you create.. so post on your blog and link back.. always great to see what you make ... Happy Crafting and enjoy!
