Truly scrumptious and Less is More Challenge card

I have not been on my blog for quite some time and I seem to have lost my inspiration. I am not sure why this happened but I think It is since our home was broken into a couple of months ago. Since then I have not really had the motivation to do much of anything. I am now making a determined effort at updating my blog and taking part in challenges and I really enjoyed making this card. I am looking forward to taking part in more challenges I find browsing through the blogosphere.

I designed the shape of my card in Silhouette studio. It measures 5 3/4 x5 3/4 perfect for putting in a 6x6 envelope. I used some papers I have had for quite some time for the inset shadow and then a Gorjuss girl stamp that I have had for years and never used. I think along with my ribbons flowers and buttons it turned out so cute.

My most Recent cards

Here are some of the cards that I have made over the past few months. I hope that you like them and any feedback would be appreciated.

 These paper roses are handmade using an 8 petal flower cut from my Silhouette Studio Library. I followed a video by Stephanie Weightman and I think they turned out really well. The Video can be found here

These are two Football Fathers Day cards that I created this year. I used My Craft Studio to create the backing papers and Silhouette Studio for the Shield and Stars. I used the Print and Cut feature of the machine to make sure my text was perfect in the centre of the Shield.
This is a 3d word created for my daughter using the 3d Alphabet kit from SVG Cuts. I love there files and this was so much fun to create. You can get more information and view videos about this kit here.

Been Away for quite some time

Hello Everybody,

As it is the summer Holidays I have decided that I am going to make a determined effort to get some cards made, and keep my blog updated. I have not posted since March and have really missed keeping up to date and taking parts in challenges etc. I hope to be around so much more often and post some more card designs and Make the Cut files too.

Also I will be back with some cards I have created over the past couple of months that I have been away.
