Monogram Card

Another simple card which oozes elegance.  The two tone colour scheme gives a crisp and clean feel to this card.  The flourished frame embossing folder supports the monogram image which is highlighted on the spellbinders oval. The image is made up of a monogrammed 'M' from the JustRite Stamp deluxe set with the added damask border.  An at-home rub on just finishes off the story.

Hope you like it.
Keep smiling.....Ann

Welcome Millie - Embossed Baby Card

On 6 February 2010 our first grand-daughter Millie was born; oh how she just melts our hearts; isn't being a grandparent just the best thing!  This card was made to celebrate her welcoming into the world along with a cross-stitch for her wall, called Reading Bear by designer Maureen Christie. I think I've set a precedence now! Here's the link to the cross-stitch if you're interested

The bigshot played a big part in the creation of this card. When I saw cards in the US created using this machine I knew I just had to have one because I could see how it would allow me to move forward with my card making. I've never regretted it and can thoroughly recommend it if you're looking to take a step up!

I hope it makes you smile.........have a wonderful day.
