huge selection of new cards

i have had several orders for cards recently so have got stuck in and got most of them finished have a few left to do but they are not needed until april
have pushed my back to far again could hardly move this morning and have been full of pills all day but it's my own fault as i have sat too long but you know what its like when you get engrosed in something
right the cards i have made are as follows:

first 2 are using the same stencil (dreamweaver) with 2 different methods first one was using embossing paste and some glitter the next was using fluid chalks
i cut the appature on the cricut and the frame to match quite like the effect
the butterflies are just stamped on acetate

next is great stamp of a vase of flowers i cut another appeture with the cricut then stamped in stazon i used a combination of crystal glaze and liquid applique to colour it and give it texture

right this is a card for william who is going to be 2 very soon
used pennyblack hedgehog stamps and decorated a little envelope with a teddy to put some money in for him.

here is another card for amie's 16th it's for her nan to give her
used k and co smitten papers cut the large flower and appature on the cricut the lettering are little wooden letters i inked them and used some sparkley pink embossing powder on them they look great in the flesh the card is made of 2 8x8 cards joined together so a nice size for a special card

right last but not least a few quick and simple cards for the £1 card box in the office these are 5x5 cards
just picked a few of my favourite stamps and painted them with my new paints i had from they are gorgeous would recommend them if you like sparkly paints like H2Os they are called Micacolour Sparkling Pigment Water Colours this is the item number if you want to have a look Item Number587595
anyway hope you like my latest creations i think there won't be much crafting going on in our house tomorrow will have to have a rest up before the weekend
right just going for a blog hope catch you all again soon

WOW...what can I say, your cards look fantastic.
I'm new to this game both 'blogging' and the card making. I'm looking to develop my interests and am looking for tips and hints of ways to start. Are you able to help me out? Where do you get your inspiration from and are you able to let me know if there are any books I'm able to read. I went to a haberdashery today with a friend and was looking a lots of ribbons and buttons and pins etc etc, my mind was running away with itself but I'm not too sure how to put it all into practice. I don't know if you are able to point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate your help...and again WOW...
Thank you Emma

WOW Gill you have been busy, all the cards are fantastic. I especially love the top 2 butterfly ones and the pink girls celebration card. They certainly are different and have the wow factor too
Hope the back recovers over the weekend, from another sufferer, I know how it can go into spasm all of a sudden, so take care!
