Cards for my girls

Finally I have some new eye candy to show you! Yesterday I sat down and made these two cards for Madonna's girls, Katelin and Alexandra. They moved house over the weekend and I wanted to make them something to say congratulations and so that they would have mail at their new home. I love making cards for the girls, because I can be all 'girly' and extravagant! However, with my back the way it is, I didn't get too carried away with these ones.


This one's for Katie. I've used the Spring Fling DSP and the coordinating CS colours of Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Mellow Moss. The flowers are from the On Board Blossoms and Basics and covered with CS punched out with the five petal flower punch...which happens to match perfectly...I love that about SU! The Pretty in Pink centres are punched out with the 1/2" circle and covered with Crystal Effects. The 'Wonderful' sentiment is from Warm Words and is in an oval Antique Brass frame with the same hodgepodge brads. The ribbon is Pink Taffeta.


This one's for Miss Lexi. The card base is Certainly Celery, the flower is from the Blossoms and Basics and the sentiment is a rubon from A Perfect Day. The ribbon is my very last piece of Pretty in Pink narrow grosgrain....see how much I love my niece when I use up the last bit of one of my favourite ribbons. Of course it does give me the excuse of buying a whole roll of it, as that was part of my ribbon share from a few months back! I've also used some more of the Spring Fling DSP, the polka dot pink is the reverse of the stripe, and some So Saffron CS stamped with little Saffron flowers from "Always".

They're both really simple cards, but rather pretty I think and I hope my favourite girls like them!

I also wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments left on my card for Kristina's challenge. I'm thrilled to be in her 10 Random selections!! It really made my day.

So, I hope you all have as wonderful a day as I am having,
