A Classy Lady

Hello.

Have you had a good Monday? I wasn't ready for Monday - the weekend went by in what seemed like a flash!

I had loads to do tonight but I'm feeling a bit lazy so I haven't done any of it #oops #theresalwaystomorrow

So to today's card. I made a anniversary card for a friend at work for his wife. I've used the Stamping Bella stamp Audrey Loves Her Make Up and used some MME paper with chandeliers - I was going to use the chandelier from the Visible Image set but decided it was too big to put beside Audrey so I let the paper do the talking.

Cappuccino Friday

Hello.

How's your Friday been? Ready for the weekend?  We've a busy one ahead with lots of sporting endeavours with Scott so hoping the weather isn't going to be as bad as predicted.

So to today's card, which if I didn't blog today I would have to wait until next Friday!!



We have a tradition in work on a Friday that at 2.32pm we have a cappuccino, well today it was a special cappuccino (although actually today it was a mocha) as it is Donny's birthday tomorrow so I made a birthday card to celebrate too.

A Baby. In A Flowerpot. As You Do.

Hello.

I started to write this post ages ago and then went and did something else so I have now completely forgotten what I was going to write!

This is a wee baby card my friend asked me to make. She always starts her requests off with "you know how I like to give you a challenge"... well, when she said it was for a baby girl I thought the challenge was pink! Oh no, she said that the baby's name was Jex (there were other names too but I can't remember those) and that Dad had delivered the baby and that she didn't think they'd like a traditional baby card....

I discovered this sweet wee baby in a flower pot image over at Cuddly Buddly and decided to go for kinda earthy colours too. I'm pleased with the way it turned out and it was such a bonus not having to use you know what.

Retail Run

Hello.

Well, the Easter school holidays are almost over, the boys are in bed early ready to go back to school tomorrow. And it won't be long before the summer holidays!

Today's card is an order from a friend's mum who asked me to make a card for her grandson to give his mum - I tried to incorporate as much detail as I was given but one of the things you can't see is the sentiment I stamped in the inside which says Keep Calm and Buy Shoes.

In A Corner

Hello

Just a quick post tonight as I wanted to share this card I made a few weeks ago for a friend's parent's Ruby Wedding Anniversary.

It's really just a lot of dies in red and cream and I was midway poking through the bits from the corner dies when I remembered why I don't use it a lot!! Never mind, I think they look good but maybe next time I'll remember and use something else instead ;)
