A few weeks ago I took part in One World One Heart on my main blog, and naturally I offered up sets of my cards for the giveaway. All the cards have now been posted and are on their way to people in the UK, America, and the Phillipines!! But, not to worry - I took photos - here is a selection of some of the ones I made.


The heart holding teddy was a freebie stamp from one of my card making magazines and I am really pleased with the way it looks, however, I am not so pleased with how badly I’ve lined up the punched holes with the eyelets – there must be a way of lining them up better! (Perhaps I am just not used to my crop-a-dile yet)

I adore my two birthday wishes cards. It has taken me a while to figure out how to use patterned paper properly – I usually make very simple and clean cards, but need to more than that! Anyway, the patterned paper and button comes from my very first Stampin’ Up paper stash!! (Thanks Hayley!)

thank you

another thank you

I cannot remember where I first saw a similar card to the two above, but if I remember correctly they had the same embossed centre with a phrase in the middle. I just added a bit of detail by having a a flower to the side with a ribbon attached – I think that it looks just lovely (even if I say so myself!!)

So, you see, even if I have been the baddest blogger you’ve ever come across, I have been making cards!!

P.S. I am a right ninny!!! I have just had a look at a crop-a-dile tutorial (I love youtube!) and have found that the tool actually has moveable guides - d'oh!

I didn't know the crop-o-dile had moveable guides either! I love your cards -- and after all, a little off-set makes it handmade. We are not machines afterwall. XX Martha Kay, aka, the neon
