GOOD LUCK GIRLS!!!
I was going to a housewarming party last night and realised I hadnt made a card so I had seen this done by one of the ladies that come to our craft club so although I have to work on the measurements for a 1st attempt im quite happy they were very impressed.
I made this card for a dear friend who has just had an operation, Its 3 layer decoupage and I used the easiscore board for the wavey line. cut out tags free hand and I love to add corners.

I have chosen cream and gold as i dont know the colours of the wedding with coral h20s to highlight the flowers. there is detail on each page a verse, hearts, wedding rings, 2 roses, and whats on the front. The ribbon I got from a friend in a swap which is gorgous and sets the card off just right.

I printed off the happy birthday wishes and her name on the computer and used the silver tinta ink and traced it then whenthat was dried i embossed it from the back and used brads to attach them.

Today has also been a stressfull day as someone decided to drive into the side of my car, she pulled out as I was going past her, she didnt see my big volvo!!!!uuuuuuggggggggg!!!!!
One of the girls at works birthday is tomorrow so I did a quick decoupage card as wehadan indian carryout at lunch time as she was at work manning the phones. its linen effect orange and cream card, and I used a fiskars border punch, i love the quick ones.
This is a parchment card I have been working on for the last week , I decied to go for something challenging and have learnt alot through doing it. There is alot of work in it. I have still to finish the card and will post the end product this week coming.
This is a Bookatrix card for a wedding its ruby/burgandy/cream and gold. I know these are the colours for the wedding, each page has either a verse or a peeloff with some romantic theme. it has worked out well i think.
I also made the box for it the top has the same ruby bow on it.

Today seems to be another glorious day but can my body really cope with more sun. Brin is sitting at the back door waiting for his long walk along the beach which is lovely and my neices will be with us today as the teachers are in for training today.
The house is slowly becoming a tip again but only because Im up to date with the washing but theres no place to put it all.
Hope you all have a lovely day, I will be back on to see what challenges I can get on doing so see you all soon. x
