After the kids go to bed, that's when I get to craft. Just finished making some cards, my niece Andrea has just passed her driving test so needed to make her something to congratulate her.
I am still working on wedding invitations for my portfolio. The first one was created using a plain cream card and I used my Fiskars deckled edge scissors, cut and "pulled" a piece of purple mulberry paper and put 2 butterfly embellishments onto it. Coloured in a silver peel off using my whispers permanent pens.
The second card didn't picture to well, but I stamped gold roses onto the ribbon, stamped a wedding cake image by papercraft4u onto white card and embossed using enchanted gold powder by Heat It Up!, layered it onto gold glitter card and glued 4 mother of pearl flower heads onto bottom left hand corner. Used my Sakura red stardust pen and coloured in the heart as I thought it needed something to lift the image a bit.
They both look clean, smart and I hope a wee bit different than the norm.
Anyway thank you to everyone who posted comments, emailed me and sent internet hugs for my birthday. I had a lovely day, worked in the garden planting my bulbs, cutting the grass and and put my new watchman into my oil tank.
Speak to you all soon
