A couple of cards

Just a couple of quick cards to show you today
This one I used my Cricut to make a nice Christmas Gift card holder:

Here is my attempt at a masculine card:

This last one I did for my sister for her birthday last year but forgot to put it on the blog as I have been really busy:

Hope you like them and hope to have some more cards to put on here really soon.

Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #98

I finally found some time to sit down and make my first card of 2010. I have to go back to work tomorrow after having a lovely 4 weeks of holidays. Only back for 2 weeks though before 1 more week off when the kids go back to school. Then probably back at work for 1 or 2 more weeks then off to Uni, which is a bit scary. This year I plan on doing a few more challenges to help get my creative juices flowing again.

I took this sketch from the Taylored Expressions blog and added a technique with ribbon Kristina Werner used on one of her January year in cards and came up with this Birthday card for my sister who turned 25 today. My lovely husband brought me a Cuttlebug and heaps of embossing folders for Christmas, and after finishing this card I remembered I had it and wished I had of used it on the pink background.

Hope you like it!
