I've got my eye on you


We had a  lovely weekend at a friends daughters wedding. The weather was great and the venue wonderful. The bride of course looked stunning. They liked my card. In fact one of the others guests saw it and ordered one from me!. I will show you that one tomorrow.

At Totally Gorjuss this week our theme is Pearls. and our sponsor is Dillybeans digi stamps. The DT all had one of the images to work with. These are really lovely images. I love the big eye.
So we hope you will get out your pearls and join in with us.

Special Wedding card and box

The daughter of my husband work colleague is getting married tomorrow and we have been invited to attend. We have known Sarah since she was a little girl and it is amazing to think that she is now getting married. So of course I had to make a special effort for their card.

 This is the top of the matching box for the card.
 Card inside the box

I used the same layout as I did for my daughters anniversary card but just reversed it.  I also decorated the inside and made a matching box for the card.

I do hope they will like it.

Leaf it in

Oh dear I am late with this post for Totally Gorjuss. I just seem to be so busy but I don't know what I have done!. Does that make sense? School finished for me today so now my priority is tidying up the house and getting rid of my excess craft items as I have been in trouble with my family for taking over the house. I am selling mystery craft parcels £10 + £1.50 postage full of new and used items, cardstock, papers, stamps, ribbons, buttons, templates, sizzlits etc. I have sold some already and the recipients have been pleased with what they had. 

If you would like one just email me

Now back to TG. We are sponsored this week by Heathers Hobbie Haven

The theme is Leaf it in. so anything with leaves on will be fine.

This is a card I had to make for our Head Teacher.

Thank you for looking

Dark and mysterious

Dark and mysterious...that's how i describe this card I have made. I love the dark look to this backing card. reminds me of how dark it went here last Thursday morning before the rain!
All I have used is Odessa Sky (CRD1781), some Kraft card and some Bakers twine. I cut the letters and key with Sizzix dies. I have cut out a stand using a Joy die.
