April - Martini Girl

Hiya folks and a very happy Monday to you all.  Just thought I would show some cards that I've made over the weekend, plus one I made weeks ago and forgot to post.....doh!!!

I love this Rubber Romance image, April the Martini Girl is so appropriate for many special girly occassions.  I bought her from Tracy at Dies to Die For a while ago now but  Tracy still has a great selection of Rubber Romance stamps available HERE.

April has been coloured with Copics.  The papers are from MME "Laundry Line" available from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie OMG!!! I could hardly bare to tear these up as they are all glittery and I go!!!!  The flowers are a mix of Primas, the roses are from Hobbycraft.  Dew Drops and Lace from my stash, Stampin Up sentiment.

This card is an order from a lovely lady Jean, she always rings me with orders but the funny thing is, she's a crafter herself and has just treated herself to the new electronic Big Shot, but she's not into stamping.......yet.......which is why she rings me to make her cards.  I popped over her house yesterday and she has a box filled with beautiful cards that she has made, she enjoys decoupage and the Glitter Girls embossing boards.  The papers for the card below I only received on Saturday from Jules. it's not like me to use my new papers so quickly, well you know what I'm like with lovely!!!  They are from the new Stampin Up catalogue and gosh they are delish.  Prima swirl gems and again April has been coloured with Copics.

This card I made ages ago and it's for a very close friend of mine, Sarah, we've been friends since we were 3 and now I can't believe she is 40.  April has again been coloured with Copics, the papers are a freebie download from Summertime Designs. Prima gems.

And here's what the inside looks like.  I may have gone just a tad overboard with the Prima swirly!!!

Gosh that was a long post, sorry if I've bored you all rigid, I'll leave you all get on with your day.  I'm just having a lil break from the dreaded Monday housework.....what a way to spend my day off hey!!!! Take care all xx vicki xx
