Busy busy

I made four cards today. the first 2 are Christmas cards.

I made an anniversary card for our friends 1st wedding anniversary. The picture is one of the cupcakes that were given out to all guests. I used my distress inks for the first time this colour is tattered rose.

The final one for today is my brother-in-law's birthday. He plays for his local darts team.

New cards

Needing to get on and make my swap for this month which had a travel theme. I used an image from my Men Motifs book and coloured it in with promarkers. I used the biggest of my new circular nesting dies to get the 2 circles using the papers I got free with a magazine. Then used the saying "Skies the Limit"

The next one is for my Nephew's 1st birthday. I used my favourite nesting dies with football paper, mirror card and candle paper. I topped this with a blue glittery 1st and put on a chipboard baby with ball. I then put some blue buttons in the corners and wrote Riley Roo at the top

I like nesting dies

This first is for friends who have moved into a new house. I used forever friends decoupage. I used a green textured sheet of cardstock for the background. I then used my nesting dies using green spotted paper and gold mirror card. I then put the decoupage on top. I used green star gems to finish it off.

For the next one I used a similar design for a friends birthday. Instead of green I used a red sheet of textured cardstock and used silver mirror card and and cream card with the nesting dies. On this I then put a chipboard heart. To finish it of I put a red star gem with red glitter dots either side.

For the last of my recent makes I did I design from my "Lets make cards" magazine. The dress was already cut out, I then cut a pinny out of a sheet in the magazine. I stuck on a Happy Birthday sentiment with a chipboard rose. This was finished of with green ribbon and a pink gem

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag

I made Tony's Uncle's birthday card today. He is German so thought I'd do a German card. The picture is a castle in Munich and it says Happy Birthday in German.

Christening invites

I possibly have an order for me to make some christening invites. The christening is on the 19th August so they haven't given me long but I've made one that I hope they like, I just have to wait for them to get back to me to confirm I can make the rest.

Crafting area

I've got a proper crafting area now. We chose a desk that was suitable but they didn't have it in stock so we decided to go back after they have a delivery. Tony later decided to have a look on Gumtree. He found the exact same one for £30 making a saving of about £60. I've got everything set up including a PINK chair
