Bad Blogger

Ok so I've been an absolutely terrible blogger but i have been crafting.

October is a busy month for me because its my two brothers birthdays, my parents anniversary and theres a few birthdays due from the birthday club I'm in on CraftSupplies . Then the shop that i sell my cards in needed another order and all in all i've been hectic.

I'll try to put some of the pics up here shortly

This is the card order I made. I also decorated the stand.

This is a wedding card i did for my cousins wedding.

A Christening Card for my BF's cousin's child.

And lastly for this post, a 60th card i did for my mum's cousin.

PS I hope it won't be as long until my next post.

DCM In The Frame

This weeks challenge was to use a frame or frame something somewhere on your card.

This week I’d like you to use a FRAME or FRAMES on your card. You can use any type of frame you so wish. How about a die cut frame or a hand cut frame. You can frame your card with brackets or flowers or how about some doodling - the choice is yours.

I made two over the weekend that fit the bill.

In the first one the sentiment is framed by the flowers and in the second teh jigsaw pieces create a frame around the card.

I was really busy card making this weekend and i produced a grand total of 54 cards

I was really pleased with myself.
The design for the fornt centre one isn't my own though. Its one from Jackie's class at Crafteire
