I'm having a break...

Yes, I know I should wait until the children get in from school but then I'll be doing homework, making dinner, taking the to karate yada yada. I didn't sleep at all well last night and when the alarm went off this morning I felt like I had had 10 minutes sleep so I'm kinda going in slowmo today. A friend at work asked me to make a couple of cards for her parent's Golden Wedding anniversary on Friday. I was slightly concerned at this commision having no idea where to start. However, a crafting session at my friend Lorraine's produced these results. Lorraine had seen this first card on Jenni Pauli's blog and thought it might be exactly what I was looking for. I saw it and loved it so I CASED it from Jenni. Both of the cards were made using Stampin Up products.

Image - Creative Elements Cardstock -Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede Ink - Not Quite Navy Embellishments - Crumb cake seam binding ribbon, punched hearts, pearls, twine Tools - Heart Punch The second card was for the two grand-daughters to send to Granny and Grampa in honour of their special day. Gone for the CAS look this time. The filigree heart is from a Memory Box die that Lorraine had just got in the post a couple of days before my visit. I think it works well. Cardstock - Very Vanilla Embellishments -Filigree Heart, Memory Box, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder - SU Tools - Big Shot Thanks for dropping by today! Hugs.Susan xxx

Hi Susan, oh my they are just beautiful!

Love the CaS look on both, but the embossing on the second is gorgeous!
