Mami Doodles Gallery

I haven't done this in a while, displaying some inspiring cards from Mami Doodles customers. Here's some that caught my eye.

This beauty is by Carol, she framed the image with gold frame and embelishments.



Karen used another Christmas image and added embossing and humour to her card.



I love the delicate colours which Claire used in her flowers against the vibrant ginger hair.


Thanks for using Mami Doodles images, please contact me and I'll send you a Christmas images (to be release 1st of December).

Cardlifting

I made a few cards for Vera's card drive. Since I had no idea what to make, I decided to turn to the DT blogs for inspiration.
This one lifted from Jackie:


I am very pleased with it, but when you compare with the original, it doesn't look as nice by a mile! :-(


The next ones don't use a Mami Doodles image, but it is a truly DT inspired card series.


The design is Ren-Yi's and the baubles are a freebie from Wendy.

My advice? If you need inspiration look at the DT work here and in their own blogs for inspiration.

I'll finish with a little tip. A quick way to make a strip of paper more interesting is to score two lines on them, like here:

Long time no see... I am sorry for the long absense, but I am back!

I have a new Christmas image out - Wendy wanted a something suitable for hotter climates and here is what I came up with.

Cards That Care



 I should have posted this ages ago. Vera Yates (Ling) is again this year organizing a card drive to send cards to elderly people in nursing homes. This year she has teamed up with Jennifer McGuire and you can send your cards to either of them. Details and addresses here.

I am starting late this year, but I reckon I still have time to get a few done and posted in time to get to them before the end of the month.

Please help if you can, it is such a worthwhile cause.
