ok so I couldnt fit enough in one post lol

Here are a few more I created this month.

This was for a teenage girl, handmade batik paper backing. Get well soon, flourishes and flowers all cut with the cricut machine and inked in pink.
This was made for a good friend of mine from church who truly is an inspiration and encouragement to me.
I was really pleased with this one it matched the wedding colour scheme. all cuts done with the cricut and their names and congratulations printed on the computer, I used the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder too.
This was ordered by a friend after seeing a similar one in my facebook album. Nicky loves motorbikes.
This was made with a premade aperture card blank months ago but laid aside as I couldnt think how to finish it. I finally decided on the copper butterfly and yellow skittles last week.

September crafting

Back at work now but still creating in my evening relaxation time, here are just a few cards I have made this month.

Thiswas made with the cuttlebug birdsong folder the bird on grass image is embossed then the bird cut out from glossy black and stuck on top, I added a few tiny pearl accents for grass seed. Get well soon was cut with my Cricut machine.
I bought these decoupage butterfly tiles to give them a try. I think they are quite effective but I prefer the effect on the daisy to that on the buttefly
This was made especially for my friend to give to her husband, She designed it with me I love the Red and Gold colour scheme It hink it turned out pretty neat.
another birdsong embossing folder card but this time I went over the embossed area with a new colour marker which lays down multi coloured glittery chalk. Pretty neat.
This is my favourite so far this month. Butterflies and flourish cut with Cricut machine and I found a stamp flourish which matches it pretty well too. The colours dont show up well on this but the butterflies and flourishes are made from coppery metallic card and backed in a deep green. Happy Birthday is stamped and then embossed in metallic green too.

Back to work tomorrow so here are my last summer craft creations

well it may have been a wet summer but it still flew by too quickly

my Good friends JM and Meg got married in Maine USA on 16th August, but for all their English friends they are having a celebration on 6th September which I will be attending. This is the acceptance card I made for it.
The backing of this is made from wallpaper borders which I picked up as a free sample in B & Q. Double layered and matted with black. the Happy Birthday label was made on my label maker and the flutter of red butterflies were done with my new Martha stewart punch. ( My favourite purchase this summer)
The tag on this card was on a pair of Jeans and I recued it when my son went to throw it in the bin. another free sample wallpaper border which reminded me of waves so it had to be a bon voyage card. This I hand wrote in silver. I added some funky fibres tothe tag and put an acetate butterfly on top coloured with permanent markers.
This was my bargain I am so pleased with these. Hand cut butterflies from China. They are cut from very fine tissue paper and then hand painted. I thought they needed to be seen from fornt and back so I sandwiched it in acetate and placed it in an aperture which I cut with my cricut machine. the flowers were also cut with the cricut and everything else is peel off stickers. I put a yellow paper insert in this and placed a square of glittery Gold paper on the insert to rest behind the aperture to back the butterfly.
This one was cut with the cricut too. Col says its a Triffid lol but dont worry its well stuck down so it aint gonna walk off the card
