Plain and simple

Something a little plain and simple can be just right sometimes, a spotted embossing folder was used for the bottom half, the sentiment printed out from the computer and a little ribbon and there you go

Gaming Boy

Good morning all

Sun is trying its hardest to come out this morning but it is still quite early.

Anyway todays card is a gaming boy digi stamp from Mo Manning (I think - as I've said before, I have so many digis that I can never always remember where I purchased them from lol but I will try harder)

Its 3d foamed onto a digi made backing paper, please feel free to grab a copy by right clicking and saving, its ideal if you're in a rush and need to do a quick card, all i ask is that you leave a comment

Thanks and have a great day :)

My mum

This is my mum, she told me off a few weeks ago because I went out and bought her a mothers day card and didn't make one. Did tell her I didn't have time but she still told me off and even though I'm in my thirties she still scares me lol. So thought I had better make her her birthday cards and here they are (proof Mumzie I made them!) love u loads Mumzie x
