These 2 cards are for my Godson and his sister. I always give them money for Christmas and birthdays and I like to make money cards for them. I used the Gingerbread Soloutions cartridge, for the first time, along with some free paper from a paper stack I got free with a magazine. I added some Card Candi in the corners and some bakers twine finishes it off nicely I think.
Hope that you like them:-)

I decided to try my hand at making a Christmas banner and I am quite pleased with the results. I used the Birthday Bash Cricut cart along with the Black Letter font cart. It is the first time I have used the font cart and I am really chuffed with the outcome. I think that it is very Christmassy. I used some Xmas Papermania scrapbook paper which is in red, green white and fed foil. I hope that you like it! It will be hanging in my living room untill just after Christmas.

This card was loads of fun to make! The cow is off the Create a Critter cart and the backgrond paper is from some Wizard of Oz paper that I have in my craft room. I added some beige raffia and some brown spotty ribbon to finish it off. Hope that you like it!!!
This is a get well soon card that I made for a relative who has spent a lot of time in hospital. She and the hospital staff loved the card!
I used the Life's a Beach cart, the backing paper is origami paper that my dad's girlfriend got me from Japan and I finished it off with some lovely Divine Twine.
I was asked to make a card for a friend to wish someone good luck in the final of a Crown Green Bowls competition. I had no clue of what I was going to do! I looked through my carts and decided that the best way to go was with the Indie Art cart. I used my Gypsy to hide the number on the pool/snooker ball. I was quite chuffed with the outcome and my frind loved the card:-)

This is another competition winner:-) The comp was to make a joke card for April Fools day. I bought a joke book and this was the best joke (in my oppinion).
I only found out that it had won because it was on the letters page of Quick Cards Magazine as a winner! Still waiting for my prize though.
I made this card for a competition in Quick Cards Magazine, the competition was to make a card for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. I used the sweethearts Cricut Cartride and I also used some different coloured Union Jack paper. I had no idea what the design was going to be, I just played around with the paper and came up with this. I loved the outcome, even if I do say so myself. The first thing that I knew about being one of the winners was receiving 2 huge boxes in the post full of Sizzix goodies!!! I was really chuffed!
There is also a feature in this months Quick Cards Magazine with the 6 winners cards on a 2 page spread! It is great to see something that you have designed featured in a magazine:-)
Hope you like it!!

This card was made for my best friends husband. He loves going on holiday in their camper van and he totally loved the card! He even told me again how much he loved it 4 months after his birthday when we met up for a meal. I used the Going Places cartridge for the first time with this card. It was fun to make.

This is a brilliant digi stamp that my cousin, Mike, created for me. It is a picture of my dog Welly when he was a tiny puppy. I used the digi stamp for my husbands birthday card and I had so much fun making it. I used my Pro Markers to colour it in. Hope that you like it!xx

This thank you card was made for my neighbour after he saved my iPod from death. We thought that we would have to spend over £200 on replacing it but he managed to resore factory settings. I made him this card and got him a bottle of wine to say a big thanks.
This card was also featured on the letters page of Quck Cards Magazing #84.

This card was the winner of 2 competitions over Christmas:-)))) I won 2 lots of prizes and I was really chuffed! It was a bit cheeky of me entering it twice but I really did not think that I would win anything at all.
I used the From My Kitchen cartridge and cut the legs off the pigs and wrapped them in some lovely hand made paper. I used the snowflake embossing folder and added the sentiment Pigs in Blankets. One of the competitions was for a card featuring your favourite Christmas food and this was the idea that my husband came up with.
