Some rejects....

I recently submitted to Papercrafts magazine.... but my cards didn't make the cut.....I don't really mind, as I had great fun making them.

My first one was for the wedding theme


a very CAS card, using a Fiskars edge punch, some satin ribbon, pins and a Hero Arts Sentiment.

And this second one was for the Baby cards

Welcome Baby

I used an embossing folder for the background and some quilting fabric for the little giraffes.   Sentiment from Stampin' Up!

I haven't been up off submitting... will just keep trying.

Haven't done much crafting this week, as by the time I've spend 45mins to an hour at the gym, I find I've not have a lot of time left in the evenings.  Been at least 3 times a week for the last couple of weeks.    Hoping to get some more cards made this weekend.

As usual, I appreciate my visitors and your lovely comments.

Lovely cards. The heart pins are perfect for your wedding card.

I love the embossed background on the cute baby card. Great idea to use the fabric giraffe.
