Let's Party


Well I've finally got around to my first challenge so it's time to party. I decided to have a go at Poetic Artistry Mojo Monday #58. Then I discovered A Spoonfull of Sugar which is running a Sparkle & Bling challenge so I combined the two.
I have used a Clarity stamp on acetate and glitter with co-ordinating papers.

You Have Mail


Well I really enjoyed myself yesterday at my first Stampin'Up stamp camp. I am a little tired today after all my efforts yesterday so have only done a very quick card. I have purposely not put any sentiment on the front as this card is so versatile, Birthday, New Home, Belated Birthday, Thank you. The patterned paper comes from Funky Hand Now That's Funky CD.

A Touch of Class



I thought I would post another card today as I will be busy tomorrow. I am going to a Stamping'Up stamp camp day which I am really looking forward to as I have never been to one before.
This card is so simple to make and you can just let your imagination run wild with designs. I just loved this paper which came from funkyfairyinspirations and knew as soon as I saw it what I wanted to do with it. They have some wonderful stuff you should check them out.

Just for Jackie


Just to prove to Jackie my calligraphy teacher that I did finish last terms project.
I even turned it into a birthday card for my friend Gill over at Crafty Times

1950's Lady


OK so I managed my first blog which is encouraging, I still want to tweak things a bit so look out for the changes.
Why Cards by Aardvark you may wonder? No, it's not because I want to be top of any lists. It's a play on words, my maiden name was Varker and my husband always says I'm hard work, hence aardvark.
Well time for another card, this is one I made for my friend Val and is a stamp I brought from Ally Pally a couple of weeks ago. I love it and can't wait to use it again.

My First Ever Blog Entry


OK so I've finally entered the blogging world. I love computers but I have never got around to a blog before, been too busy making cards and doing my family tree amongst other things.

This first entry is short and sweet until I get the hang of everything.
This is a card I made for my friend Linda's 50th birthday back in the summer.It's the first picture that came to hand. I will post more as I get time.
