Sorry i have been Awol

Sorry to all that have visited my blog with the expectations of seeing some cards but as some of you know i have had a tough week :( The toothache didn't get any better and was driving me insane, so much so that i had the tooth out on Wednesday. It was such a relief and well worth it to get a good nights sleep. I now feel slightly sore but nothing compared to what i was feeling, so the good news is i feel up to doing a little bit of card making. Hopefully i will have some cards to show you soon, so please pop back.

25th Anniversary Card

This card i made a while ago but wanted to post in my blog for Jacqui to look at as she is making a 25th Anniversary card and i tried to explain how i had made mine. So here you go- I embossed card through the Cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder, then scored either side with score board. The heart was cut on the Cricut, one in silver and the other in white, which i think embossed with the bird embossing folder. I added silver heart peel offs and the 25 was cut on the cuttlebug using sizzlet dies. Very easy to do, but very effective. The greeting was done on the computer, before i started the embossing. (sorry those who have seen this before)
