Wedding Table Names

Pin It Good evening

A little while ago I agreed to make some table names for a lovely lady Jenny, who was getting married in December this year.  She was having a very christmassy theme with the venue being decorated with reindeer's (not real ones!) and lots of glitter!  She came up with the idea of having reindeer names for her table names, and I offered to help!

This is what I came up with...... I love them, and again found it so hard to give away lol

What do you think?  The stamps was from Elzybells which has so sadly closed down... although I think I have bought nearly every stamp in the collection!  
Rudolph is definitely my favourite!

Right must get on and make birthday cards.... only 7 for January!

Have a fun evening all

Christmas Cards

Pin It Evening all

I think I did really well making over 400 Christmas cards this year, a couple of orders, some for charity and the rest for me..... however I did not do so well in taking photos of my designs, so I thought I would share the few that I did photograph and then I also have a reference point for next year as the orders have started already :o)

The first three below are using the lovely James bear from Lily of the Valley - I still have about a hundred of these coloured in, so will be using him again for sure.  Sentiments are also Lily of the Valley and the first card has been cuttlebug'd with Snowflake design.

This one is made using a lovely poinsettia stamp from Dawn Bibby collection, which was stamped onto red card and decoupaged to create the height.  Sentiment is from Paula Pascual lovely stamp collection which I purchased from Sir Stampalot - fabulous service!

Forever Friends decoupage - my card for my mum and dad - lots of glitter here

Not very traditional this one - put could not stop thinking about this design when I saw Sarita's card here  - WOW her blog is DIVINE! I spent hours drooling over her wonderful designs, and had to have a little go and this one, as I had some similar stamps by Hero Arts.  I was not so happy with how mine turned out, but I will be working of something similar for next year for sure.

This lastly, this one was my favourite design last year, and had to do a couple this year just cause I wanted too!

Hope you like them, and would love to hear what you would like to see more of on my blog, or less of!

Thank you for visiting me

Wedding card

Pin It Good evening all

Wanted to share this wedding card with you tonight that I made again for a commission.  I didn't want to part with this, I loved it.

The idea was found on a blog, but really don't remember who or where..... but please if it is you, let me know as I would love to link to your site as it certainly gave me the inspiration to do this card.

I have started trying to keep details of my cards, so that I can so little explanations like you wonderful bloggers do.... I really don't know where you get the time though, I seem to be spending all my evening blog hoping and drooling over your cards!

Thank you for looking and I will be back soon

Let try this blogging again!

Pin It Good evening all

I have been such a bad blogger, but now I have decided that it is time to put my heart into my crafting and therefore redesigned my blog, ready to show off my cards and designs.

I have just one more day left at work, then time to switch off and enjoy Christmas with my family and friends.

I have a card to show that I finished today, and order for the lovely Annie for her son - had to do some research for this one as the brief was Halo and Xbox..... something I know very little about, but I do like how the card turned out.  The font was downloaded from and is the actual Halo 3 font, so I was quite lucky there.  The background was an image for the Internet, which I changed to a grey scale image, and then a little Xbox logo was needed to finish it off.

I have also decided today that I need to do some kind of photography course, as I really don't like any of the photo's on my blog, so need to look into that as a new year project!

I have lots of cards on order, to I will make sure that I visit and hope to also start taking part in some of the challenges..... wonder if my boss would consider me going part time!

Thank you all for taking time to join me this evening, and I will make sure that I start my blog hopping to visit all your wonderful creations again soon
