I thought I was going to have more time for crafting, but we've been decorating the living room, and I don't know where the time has gone. I have managed to make a few cards, and here are 2 of them, These are an order for a friend, for her neices wedding, the colour scheme is black and ivory, and she didn't want a church, or a bride and groom on the card. So here is what I have done, the 2nd smaller card is a gift wallet.

I also made this little tag,to go in the gift card, I know it's got a bride and groom on, but she doesn't have to use it if she doesn't want to.

         I used            a heart embossing folder from Crafts Too
                              flowers and pearls from wildorchid crafts
                              heart shaped nesties
                              martha stewart edge and leaf punches
                              LOTV image coloured with copics

                                                                              Sorry can't tell you what the stamp is as the image was a gift from a friend

 The 2nd card is a wedding anniversary card, again for a friend on docrafts, this image is a PB stamp,isn't it cute?

                                                                        Well I am now going to have a tidy up in my craft room, and then start on a wedding card and gift wallet for an order

More time for crafting

Well my grandaughter Freya, who I have looked after 2-3 days a week since she was 6 months, starts full time school on Mon. She has been going part time for the last 2 weeks. So apart from school holidays I will have more time to craft. I will really miss her, but she and her older sister Megan will still visit once a week,at least, and hubby and I will have more time for adventure, now we are both retired.Here is a card I have made for a friend,her birthday is later this month, but she is visiting New York and Boston, to celebrate her 60th, so I have sent it early

The image is a digi stamp from Bugaboo

Been very busy just lately looking after grandchildren, and we've been away on holiday,as a result my blog and crafting have been neglected. Well i'm back into card making now,and to give myself a challenge I am entering this card into my first blog challenge. Creative Inspirations are looking for a DT member, the requirement for the card is autumn colours, and this card fits the bill.
