Wedding Card

Wedding Card

Good morning everyone, well our weekend is over here (we have Friday and Saturday weekend) and before I know it Thursday will be here and I will be flying off to Cyprus for a month and I still have nine more wedding cards to make for my friends shop, exam to finish agggg and more tomatoes to find a home for as they are all ripening at the same time, looks like tomato sauce is on the menu tomorrow.

My card for today is one of the wedding cards I made last night I just love the shimmer paper and the centre piece is a heart of roses with shimmer sequins and a bow, finely to finish a silver heart.
I also did the inside and a tag to match but forgot to take the picture and when I went to do this my battery has died on my camera, I hope you like it?.
Well that’s all for now as a busy day is calling and I still have to make a going away card for a friend who is leaving the island and going back to the UK, we are all going out for a meal tonight to say good bye so I better get my skates on lol.
Thank you all for popping by my place and will catch up with you later, have a really good day.

Daisy May and glitter

Daisy May and glitter

Today has been a busy day picking tomatoes and bottling them, my huuby planted 49 tomatoes plants, he gets carried away sometimes lol, so we have tomatoes coming out of our ears as they say.

The taste is beautiful so for lunch I did grilled tomatoes with a poached egg on top then grilled slices of prosecute ham and put that on the top and drizzled with balsamic vinegar served with French bread yummy.

So to my card which is for a friends daughter, so I did Daisy May sitting on a Magnolia stamped Mushroom and the little dog is from the Daisy May collection, I think he’s so cute. I also entered it into ABC challenge which is glitter, I glittered the dog bows and gave Daisy a glitter slid for her hair and included a glitter brad for the flower, hope you like what you see. Thanks for popping by again and reading my ramblings, have a good day.

Male card

Male card

Hello, what a day today first the sun came out, so I put the cushions out thinking I might sit outside today and do a bit of studying, then the wind came up really strong and that means rain, yep it rained, so I put the cushions away, then the sun, so put the cushions back out, I bet you guessed by now, yep the rain again, so I gave up and rang my friend and we went for tea and scones yummy and the sun came back out lol.

This afternoon I had to make a male card again this time for my brother (I have 5) so I tried out a new stamp I bought (remember tea shop next door to the craft shop) today, which is a pocket watch, I had to have a few goes to get the hands correct, in fact quiet a few.
I also found this lovely verse to go inside the card too, which is apt for my brother who was always sliding down the banister (memories).
Verse Inside says

As you slide down
the banister of life,
may all the splinters
point in the right direction.

I am not really happy with the way I did the stamp and was thinking maybe I should cut it out and then mount it, might do that later as I still cannot decide, what do you think? now be honest, I can take it lol.

Well ladies and any gents who might be peeking at this thank you again for giving me your time and visiting me, going to have a blog hop now so do enjoy your day or even night wherever you may be.

Button with mint green and pink card for Cute Daisy May

My creation for the Cute Daisy May challenge which is buttons.

Hello everyone, today there is a new challenge at Cute Daisy May and this week it is Buttons on your card so lets see your beautiful creations. You do not have purchase the Cute doodles to enter this challenge but I think you will be falling in love with them when you see them.

This week I chose pink and mint green for my creation; the paper on the background is Bo Bunny (I just love these papers) the image is from the Cute Daisy May collection which I coloured with my Copice then I use my mint green and pink inks and dabbled a bit on the background and smudged it lightly with a damp cotton wool ball and mounted it on black, green and pink card stock from my stash . The ribbons I got down the souk here and adhered it round the mounted image and the buttons are K and Co. I printed the saying on the computer using the Kristen font and mounted it on the same colour card stock, the end, well I hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you for popping by my place as I love to see you and love reading your comments, I call it my daily fix.

Challenge and Fairy Card

Hello to everyone, busy day today as I took my friend down the souk for a little shop before she goes back home on Saturday. The bling you see on the card I pick up for about £1.70 for a hundred pieces and the ribbon was 40p for 5 metres so I was a happy bunny and bought loads of colours in both, I shall be going to that little shop again in the souk as it’s a little treasure trove of goodies. The card is for my niece and the ribbon is actually lilac but looks a blue in this light, I also used two of my new Cuttlebug folders, Forest Branches and D'vine Swirl. The stamp is Inkadinkado which I love and I glittered the wings and stars which was ideal for the Cuttlebug Challenge this week which was glitter and of course your Cuttlebug. Finally I added a flower, which is three, layered up and added a sentiment hope you like it. Going on a blog read now and thank you for calling by I do appreciate it.
