Another Wedding Card

Hi everyone,

Well it must be wedding season, as here is a late post from me this evening to show you a wedding card that I made for a friend who got married yesterday. We had a great day and it was lovely to see the sun shine!

Here's the card that I made...

I used papers and embellishments from the DoCrafts Vintage Notes range. The doily was actually from a pound shop and I used spun sugar distress ink to blend it in with the rest of the card. 

I then added some ribbon and roses to the bottom.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Emma's Crafty Challenge - Pink & Blue
The Crafty Bloggers Network - O's & X's Challenge (Die cut, doily & Gems/bling)

Divas by Design - Friendship

Thanks for looking

Wedding Cake Card

Evening all!

Hope you have all enjoyed the sunshine this weekend. It was nice to see it - we've just got back from a break in Barcelona and it poured with rain! I wasn't very impressed, especially as hadn't taken a coat or waterproof shoes! Had a great time sightseeing none the less.

Before I went to Barcelona I made a wedding card for some friends that got married yesterday. I used papers from the DoCrafts Vintage Notes range as well as the sentiment. The other bits and pieces are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Blogger's Network - O's and X's challenge (Gems/bling, stamp, ribbon)
Simon Says Stamp - Flower Power
DoCrafts - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - 3-2-1 (3 cake tiers/patterned papers, 2 flowers, 1 stamp)

Purple Fairy Card

Hi Everyone,

Here is a card that I made for my Gran. She hasn't been too well so I thought a card and a photo of a recent lunch out would cheer her up.

I love this stamp - it's by Lili of the Valley and it's great because you can use lots of different colours for her dress. This time I used purple promarkers - Amethyst, Orchid and Blossom.

For her hair I used copics - E35, E57 and E59. For the leaves and grass I used G21 and Forest Green.

I kept the card simple but I thought the image was enough with just a purple border and some green punched leaves.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Mad for Markers - Something created for a female
Whoopsi Daisy - For a Special Lady
Simon Says - Things with Wings
DoCrafts - Use a stamp
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking.

Watercress Line & JK Smashbook pages

Hi everyone,

Last week was a busy week for me with one thing and another including a long day as polling clerk for the local elections which I really enjoyed depsite the very early morning! Unfortunately the busy week ended in me having a stinking cold for the lovely sunny bank holiday weekend so have spent all weekend inside feeling sorry for myself! I have managed to do a bit of crafting today though and take some pictures to share with you.

Here is one of my latest Smashbook pages. This was about a day out a few years ago now, which reminds me that I meant to look up the date and add on but have forgotten! I picked out the colours from the train - red and green and added embellishments in those colours.

I have also done a page on the car that we had to sell recently - was very sad to see it go as I loved that car but it was time to move on!!

I hope you like my pages. Thanks for looking and commenting.
