OK I Was Wrong

Hello.

Yes, I was wrong about the sun yesterday, although it's sunny today which is nice. Not the tropical, warmer than Ibiza that was predicted - although I think that may have been meant for the south of England.

I was also wrong about not being able to do girly...... 

Tada.....

This is the card I made for the wee girl next door who had her 6th birthday last week. I've used a very old Sugar Nellie image - Strawberry Tea. I think it might have been one of the first stamps I ever bought and do you know what.... I think this is the first time I have used it!

Fabulous Birthday

Morning!

Breaking news.....there's a round ball in the sky, I'm not sure what it is. Should I phone Sky News?

As you know I recently celebrated my 29th birthday so lots of friends will also be celebrating a milestone this year, and this is one of the cards I've made so far!

I've used the LOTV big sentiments and teamed it with some glittery diecuts and gems. Nuff said really!

Wedding Buttons!

Hello.

Just a quick post tonight, but with a couple of things to show you. 

I was asked recently if I could do a wedding gift but my friend wasn't sure what she wanted, so a quick trawl of Pinterest gave me some ideas to share with me and she plumped for the button frame below. She also asked me to make a wedding card for the couple so I went with WOW for that. 




 Embellishments 
Gems

Dies
Stitched Die Tags - MFT
Heart Die - Stampin Up
Words - Tim Holtz for Sizzix
Downton Collection

As far as the buttons go, I drew round a heart die and stuck the buttons in the outline (having first printed the page with the writing on it!).

A Marvellous Adventure

Hello.

It's been a bank holiday here today so I'm a bit out of sorts as I thought for a minute this was Sunday!

Big Sentiment. Small Cake.

Morning. I suppose I could have gone the other way and that I could have made the cake big and the sentiment small.... but it worked for ...
