Got a busy few weeks ahead on the card front. I have recently made a 40th ,50th and 60th and Golden wedding anniversary card for my mum but forgot to take pictures.OOps.

I have now made another 40th and still have a 50th to make for me, for the same people, so need different designs and styles!

I also need a wedding anniversary card for OH at the weekend and birthday card for son for August.I am also trying to get ahead with my xmas cards so will post some of those soon. I have the patchwork pals kit and some pink gem stamps along with lots of other things from previous years so have lots to play with. Now we have the school holidays upon us I have a little bit of spare time as I get school hols off too..yippee. Off to check out some flower diecuts so I can cut my own. Fed up cos my super bargain flowers have been lost in the post they were posted a fortnight ago and no sign of them so have now given up hope of ever getting them.

The blue card has been made with Kanban card as the base and papermania textured card which has been embossed with swiss dots and floral border. I have used craftwork card flowers. One is lightly inked blue and the other embossed with the swiss dots folder.The pearl gems are from lakeland so once I have used them all up will have to find some somewhere else. The stamp is a Sarah kay masked over an inkadinkado stamp and coloured in with copics.

The lilac card has DCWV pocket full of posies card on it and the stamp is a Wild Rose studio stamp. Coloured in with copics and then I have used a versamark pen to pick out the flowers and added clear embossing powder to add dimension . I have also added coloured gems to the flowers.The flowers are from the craft section of WH Smiths and the centre is a papermania jewelled brad.

So little time to craft

In between ironing and mundane housework I have managed to squeeze in a bit of crafting. LOL. All are coloured using copic pens and include magnolia stamps, sugar nellie and sarah kay. Once again I have used nesties cuttlebug emboss folders gems ribbon and flowers!!! The Sarah Kay stamp has been decoupaged over an inkadinkado "welcome to my garden Stamp" inspired by Alison at a craft class I went to early last month at Windmill crafts. I have now got myself some of the masking stuff (cant remember its proper name) and have been having a play with that. Am going to be busy over the next few months as everyone I know seems to be having birthdays in the latter half of the year. I also have a 40th, 50th and 60th to do in September and have to come up with 2 of each. Aaaargh.

A wedding card

A card for a colleague at work. The stamp is a QVC foam stamp which i think is rather quite cute!. Once again label nestabilities, papermania exquiste papers and core'dination card. Martha Stewart punch and cuttlebug emboss folders. ( can you see a recurrent theme here, not to difficult to guess my favourite tools at the mo)

A collection of Sarah Kay

More cards using the Sarah Kay stamps and copic pens. Also used are nesstabilities, cuttlebug emboss folders and Martha Stewart punch.The flowers are Flora doodle ones and sentiments from Craftwork cards.
