Punch art is my favourite!

I really do love making cards using punch art. To create flowers from lots of little pieces of beautiful paper and card, and then put them together to make a card that is SPECIAL gives me such pleasure.
This card I used when doing a card class with friends.

Nature's way

I have a lot of friends who are brilliant gardeners and love growing herbs. This one is for them!
Also a LOTV stamp, quite a recent release. The yellow papers were given to me by a friend, Stefanie Semple. I think they look really good together even if they are not the usual Celia colours!

New colour way

Here is the same card in one of my favourite colour combinations - I used the sketch I had seen a few months back. Once again, this is a LOTV stamp and the sentiment is too.

Believe in your dreams

And a cutie today!

I love the Lili of the Valley stamps and this is no exception. The sentiment is also from LOTV. I am practising using Copics but have a long way to go! This is not my usual colours but I am trying to stretch myself a bit.

African theme

Might have a buyer for my cards, especially African designs. Here are the latest two in readiness!
I am really enjoying playing around this theme! These were made before I had to start all the end of term reports. Might not play again till Friday or Saturday! Hope to meet lots of followers as soon as I can work out how to make a followers list.

After my last week's marathon cardmaking session, the same friend showed some of my other cards to a lady who owns a craft shop up-country, and she said she would be interested in buying any African-themed cards I make.
As a result, I have had great fun this evening making a few. WHAT DO YOU THINK!
I would love to hear your comments - I think most crafters thrive on feedback!

Commissions - I love and hate!

I love it when a friend asks me if I can make a special card for them, but then I start to panic as the work starts - will they like it, is it good enough have I done the right thing?
Here are 2 cards that kept me up till 1am on Thursday/Friday. Not my normal style, but I think they were OK in the end. 
Can anyone suggest the best way to display cards for a post?

Last night I didn't feel like going to bed early, so I played around with a few small cards. 
I have been trying to master using Copics on the flowers. 
I would appreciate any comments or tips! Here are the results.
