My bit on the side..

get your mind out of the gutters   ;0p

I do have a lil thing I like to do on the occasional weekend, and that thing would be card making!

OK, so first off let me say I'm not going to be posting about card making regularly, it's more than likely to be once in a blue moon, if at all!  I just thought it would be nice to show you what I get up to every now and then!
I did consider making a separate blog, maybe giving step-by-step instructions on the cards that I make, but in all honesty Ive only been doing it for about 1 year, and during that time Ive only made about two dozen cards, if that.  I'm also not that good at it, I don't know what the terms are for this and that, I just play around, so giving people instructions, when I don't know what I'm doing myself sometimes, seems a bit laughable!

When I began I was taking pictures of each card I made, I wanted to look back on them for ideas, and I also wanted to chart my progress.. but I cant seem to find my older pictures, so from now on I think I will take more pictures.. but take better care of them!

Anyway, here is a card Ive made for my parent's anniversary next month.  I feel I could do more to it but I'm not quite sure yet, so for the time being this is the way it is!

You open the ribbon bow and this is the inside:

I couldn't get the pink bird inside the heart pop-out to behave, it kept turning.. The thread is also less visible in  real life, but you get the general idea!

Like I say, it needs something more, but I kinda like it as it is.. for now anyway! :)

Thats ace! I love handmade cards. The ribbon on the front is a great idea!

These are so beautiful! Would you ever consider doing a how-to in terms of making a similar card? I love card making but I'm not very good at it haha :)
