Clearly a Wedding Card

Good morning!
Well, I really do have a house full! But I love it! ;)

I had two orders for Wedding cards this week, so here they are...

The image is a download from Papercraft Inspirations...isn't it elegant? I added a veil through a slit in the bride's hair and added pearls. I cut a strip out of the A4 card blank and replaced it with acetate. The card is simply finished with the bride's bouquet and some tiny pearls. I also made inserts to hide the tape and boxes for presentation.


I have a feeling this week is going to be very busy! :)

Twins are twice as nice!

Good morning LIMettes, and Chrissie and Mandi!
Ooh I love this morning's challenge....

I love making new baby cards! :)
So here is mine!

The adorable image is from Lili of The Valley, and I have gently coloured it with Promarkers. The heart embossing is using one of my new SU! edge embossing folders, and the sentiment came with the stamp. I finish with a tiny ribbon bow using up some ribbon from my 'tiny bits tin!' My layout was inspired by Chrissie and Mandi's samples :)

I've taken a little more time this morning as I'm not working today! In fact, I am off for 16 days! However, I shall be hosting 3 adults and 3 kids, on top of Keiran, for this week! Our friends from Holland are visiting and we can't wait! :)

So, IF I get any crafting time this week, you may see me again...

Oooh Saturday morning = Less is more Challenge! :) I hope I can do my entry more justice this week, as my mojo seems to have made a return this week!
So this week at Less Is More, the challenge is
Oh dear...
Now I think I got carried away with the snow...or maybe I was trying to create 'white space' on a black card lol!
Anyway, this was created using a Kanban Christmas set I have. Lots of masking too, which is something I don't do a lot of!

Anyway, off to work now! And it's sunny for a change...typical!

Another attempt at Yellow for Less is More!

Good evening!
And what a wet one it is, after such a promising start to the day! I managed to get my lawns cut before the rain came, thankfully, but I had to re-pot all my seedlings in the rain...oh well, it's done now! :)

Anyway, if you visited my blog on Saturday, you'll have seen my first go at a Yellow card for this week's Less Is More challenge, and you'll also have seen that I really wasn't happy with it! So here is another go, that I really am happy with! So much so that I might just do some more in different colours! :)

This is made using all stash remnants! I small piece of ribbon, just the right size, a 'blind' circle made into a rolled rose, and a swirl using Fanciful Flourish and a small piece of scrap yellow paper. Oh and the flower embossing folder that came free with my texture boutique 2 years ago! :) The seed beads are also from my stash. I have left the sentiment off as I find these cards sell well on my stall...good for every occasion! :)

Ok...might try some more crafting whilst the mojo is visiting! ;)
