Hi All

I have been very busy today and only made one card. My Nephew is getting married on Friday. The wedding service will be small, immediate family only, and then everyone will be meeting up at night for the evening reception. I saw a wedding card in one of my local craft shop and I liked it so much I wanted to replicate the layout with a few small changes and this is what I came up with.

Unfortunately the picture does not do the card justice, it is quite a blingey card just my style  as many of my friends will know.

Background - Kanban card 
Label - Cricut Lacy labels
Flowers -Cricut walk in my garden
Marianne swirls
White rectangle Cuttlebug folder
And there you have it a very pretty card and I am so pleased with it.

Hi All

Two post in one week how good is that from me. I made the following card for my Niece.

I just love this technique I learned recently at my craft club . You stamp your image with versamark, then use white embossing power and your heat gun. I then used my distressing inks and finished with a couple of flowers and a happy birthday topper, which I made myself. I bet you are all very envious of my crafting skills.

Hi All

I have made another card this time for my brother-in-law Nev. He is a bit of a gardener and loves to grow veg in his greenhouse so I thought this card would be appropriate.

I used versermark for the stamp,  then black embossing powder I did this twice, cut out the  watering can and butterfly then mounted it on top of the first stamp. I used my promarkers on the flowers and butterfly. I mounted the image on green mirri board and paper.

Hi everyone I hope you are all happy and feeling well on this miserable day. I don't know if you got much sleep last night, it was warn in bed  even with the fan on all night. I did not get a good nights sleep. I made the following card for my sister-in-law who sadly lost her Father recently. I'm not much into sympathy cards so I thought a nice thinking of you card would be much more suitable and here it is.

I was pleased with the outcome and I hope the family like it also.
