A Card order (well 2 actually) LOL

Hiya, well I've made 2 cards this weekend that my friend Toni has ordered. One is for her husband for their 5th Wedding Anniversary. Toni is very into spiritual things and healing and such like so I'm hoping the paper is ok - I thought it worked quite well in that respect. She did pick the image she wanted using. No laughing at the name - its what she wanted. LOL
Second card order is for Toni to give her mum and dad on their Golden Wedding Anniversary - 50 Years - blimey that is a lonnnnnnnng time!!!!!!

They enjoy caravanning so tried to bring this into it.

Inside of card - photo of their Wedding Day!!! Bless!!!!

A few close ups

Well I'm giving them to her tomorrow so hopefully she will like them. Hope you've all had a great weekend - I've had a busy one but enjoyable. Thankfully all my relatives are safe - though without water and electricity but still thats a small price to pay I suppose, at least they are all safe and sound. Sorry - they live in Christchurch, New Zealand - was a worry at first til we found out they are all ok - was a bit difficult as well with tel lines being down etc.
Anyway, bye for now and hopefully post some more in next day or two. I promise I'll try to get back into my blogging and be good.
Thanks for visiting

Fathers Day Cards

Hi, couple of Fathers Day cards I've made over the last few days. This one is decoupage 'Remember When' range. Looks really good but doesn't seem to photograph very well. This is for John's dad - hope he likes it. Got to think of something really special to do for his birthday this year - he's going to be 85!!!!

The brown card used for backing is gorgeous - really shimmery - not showing up at all.

This one is for my dad. We used to have a VW camper when I was younger - god we had some great holidays in that - me and my cousin sleeping in the hammocks above my mum & dad in the bed underneath and my brother and one of his friends out in the awning!!! God what fun!!!! Hope it brings back some memories for him - although ours was traditional orange!

Used little sentiment stamp by Personal Impressions and punched it out with circle punch and added some bling!!
Well I wish every Dad a very Happy Father's Day for Sunday and hope you are all spolit and looked after well xxx
On another note I have been a very, very naughty girl today!! Before 6am this morning I had spent part of next months wages!! I ordered 'The Cinch' - I just couldn't resist - it looks great. I know, I know I shouldn't have!!! I already have a Bind it All - but think I will have to sell that.
Can't wait for it to arrive so I can have a play!!!
Well, bye for now and I promise I'll try to be a good girl xx

Card Order & another!!

Hi, I was asked a couple of weeks ago by my boss, Jo, to make a card - the order was actually from her childminder - for her son and wife who was having a little girl. Wanted their names on it and the baby's name - Polly Zillah - so here it is - gave it to Jo on monday and she's passed it on and apparently she loves it!!! Which is really, really nice to hear. Hope you like it. The backing papers are from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl pack and the clothes line is by K & Co. ribbon and baby face button from stash - can't remember where got them from sorry.

I think the name Polly Zillah is very unusual - not sure where name comes from.

Inside of card - backing papers from Joanna Sheens Baby Love CD. I cut the heart on my cricut and added bling - it has to be done LOL

This is a house mouse decoupage card I made for my SIL, Jean who's birthday is today - Happy Birthday Jean!!! hope you've had a great day!!!

Sentiment stamp is by Penny Black.
Well, I'm off now to sort a few things out before watching the final of Junior Apprentice. Anyone want anyone in particular to win???? I just wish Zoe wouldn't wear such bright lipstick LOL LOL
bye for now

Sugar Bowl Challenge No. 36

Hi, this is my entry for the Sugar Bowl challenge - No. 36 I've coloured in Sugar Nellie's - Sweet & Sassy with copics and mounted on black pearlised card. The backing paper is from Forever Friends Pink Parfait pack.
The flowers I got from Craft Den but can't remember who they are by. I used a pearl brad, gemstone and glittery one (all from a Papermania pack)
The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black and I've put little black pearls underneath in the middles of some of the little flowers. Hope its ok.
Thanks for looking.

First Christmas cards for this year!!

Well, here are a few christmas cards I've made over the last week! I said I was going to make at least one christmas card each week from January - LOL - these are the first ones this year!!! I'm a bit behind I think!!! No idea who makes this decoupage image or where I got it from - just in my christmas stash!!!
I stickled snow falling but not showing up very good on photo. I need lessons on how to take better pictures!!!

Again no idea on image or backing papers - although think paper is hot off the press.

Now I do know this one is Kanban - I know they are dead easy to put together but got to admit I do quite like some of them for quick and easy cards!!!

message says - Christmas Wishes - but can't get it clear on photo - sorry!!

This is forever friends decoupage (was part of kit from QVC last year) - not sure who makes the mirri card - got it in Devon - absolutely love it!!!! Quite a simple card but think its quite effective!

Off now to finish a card I'm doing for another challenge - yes another challenge - never entered any and then try to go for 2 in one day LOL LOL
