Some Swaps

Been very busy 'spring' cleaning (bit late I know but only in the mood for it this week), and getting paint to do some decorating at long last so no crafting last few days apart from some swaps which i did recently and really enjoyed making these. The first is a card using complimentary colours orange and blue and the second is an ATC (2.5X3.5 inches)
hope to post some more soon!!

last weeks efforts

seems ike ages since I sat down and actually finished something. not felt the best for the last couple of weeks, feeling sleep deprived for some reason!! so these last few days a made some more cards. the silver wedding one is okay (an idea going round in my head, and the cutting all done on the craft robo, which design I made up myself, and then used the lovely stamp I got from Time to Sow.
the other wedding card I did because I wanted to try and layout the decoupage slighly different to the normal way, and felt like having a change!
hope you like them. PS the silver wedding card feels like its 'missing' something so fire away with any comments or suggestions!

Diamond Jubilee and Confirmations

Had a busy week so only finished these two cards. I got a new Stamp which I used to do the Diamond Jubilee one, from Time to Sow, and I think they came out very well in the end, even though I had to do bits every evening and couldntfinish them in one go - working and not having enough time means I have to do things in stages sometimes!

Getting Published woohoo

Here is the bit from May09 Cardmaking and Papercraft which I meant to post a while ago, but forgot to scan it and post.. Since I only started this blog recently, I have also attached my entry from Quick Cards last summer 2008.
PS if you cant see the writing, click on the picture and it will open a larger image for you

Here are better images of the cards themselves

Today!! good day

I think I did well. 4 cards start to finish and all were personalised with inserts. I am back to doing calligraphy but just tried to make up my own tupe of roundhand and I think it worked well for the Baby cards.
