Quick cards - courtesy of a QVC kit

This kit from QVC is gorgeous - and quite quick and easy to make with no scrabbling for matching (or otherwise!) papers. The results look very co-ordinated and I just love every single image. It's called the 'Special Moments' kit I think and the other day I made a few cards. This first one is for my OH's teenage great-niece's birthday - she's mad about horses and is also a very good horsewoman!

Almost everything comes with the kit, including the sentiments and main card stock in beautiful patterns. The only thing I added here was a little piece of ribbon from my stash, some silver card candy and a couple of  little charms from my stash tied with pink and white Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Girl. The Ribbon Girl's stuff is just great and their service is brilliant - I can't link to their website right now for some reason but they sure are worth a visit. Loads of ribbons (natch!), lace, twines, seam binding - which is all the rage right now - and lots of other goodies.

I then (not realising there was enough backing card for every image to be made as an A5 card - Dumbo!) made this smaller card:
It's quite cute really but I could have kicked myself when I realised I couldn't count! The shaped Craftwork Cards card stock is just perfectly shaped for the already die cut layers.

And, as Get Well cards are always so handy to have to hand I then made these two for my box of standby cards.

Both of the Get Well cards (A5) were made using just what came in the kit and a little bit of ribbon from my stash. One thing I couldn't really do without :)

  1. Hi Di. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and asking to join in the fun. I don't think it matters what the gift is just that it is given freely to spread a little happiness. I'm really pleased to have you joining in the fun. Please send me your address to and I will send you a little something [as soon as I get whatever it is made :-)].
