A couple of cards I've made this weekend

It was the school summer fair on Friday and I had a stall selling my cards. Sold a few cards, not as many as I would have liked but a few is better than none....

I didn't have many wedding cards which seemed to be what people wanted so I got cracking this weekend and made these which were ordered.

Its been ages since I've made iris folding cards, think I should have made a couple more for my stock while I was at it.... oh well something to add to my list to do this week!

Hope you've had a great weekend, not sure where it went!!

The Sugar Bowl has caused me a headache!!

Oops, nearly missed a day. This card has been a while in the making, I started it last night, kept fiddling with it and decided it best to look at today..... still couldn't find the thing for the strips or the embellishments to go on the end, if you could see my workspace now..... it looks like a bomb has gone off, there are drawers open, and stacks of stash around me!!

Anyhow here we finally are, after much deliberation, lip chewing and head scratching! I am going to enter it into The Sugar Bowl challenge which has a wonderful prize on offer this time to celebrate the launch of the new look blog and 2 new DT members.

I am running a stall at the school summer fair on Friday, so hope to sell some of the cards in my stock, ready to buy new stash at Newbury next month :)

Off to bed now, catch up soon.

Nothing to show today :(

I'm trying to keep up with my challenge to myself of posting every other day this month.

Sadly nothing to show today though as I did some sewing and unpicked that, made some cakes and they've all disappeared! I'll try and post tomorrow night.

70th birthday star card

Here are some photos of the star card I was asked to celebrate a 70th birthday.

The card box.

The front and back pages.

I put some punched shapes in with the card for journalling..... a bit difficult to do when they're not your photos!!

I really enjoy making these cards/mini albums, really must get round to making a couple with my photos!

Retirement invites

Well here's my second post this month, nearly missed the every other day time limit I've set myself but as you can see I have been a bit busy....

I've made 60 of these so far for a retirement celebration, only a few more to go, at the moment, but the list does seem to grow on an almost daily basis!

Here's a close up of the invitation.
Stamp sets and punches used are Stampin' Up!
Ribbon from The Range
Cardstock from The Papermill.

I've been busy working on a star card today, will post pictures once I've finished it.

Its been a long time......

A new month and a new challenge...... I am challenging myself to TRY and post every other day at least this month. I don't know where the time has gone the last couple of months, I've been busy but just not managed to blog. I've had computer problems and a new camera which I am still trying to get to grips with as well as my mojo going on holiday, so bear with me :-)

I thought if I treated myself to some new stamps my mojo would come back but its taken me 2 weeks to get this stamp inked up! I've been after this stamp for ages but its only just recently he hopped into my shopping basket along with a several others which will be seeing ink over the next couple of days.
The image is coloured with copics, papers from a Papermania pad. The star embellie is cut from an SU flower punch with the petals trimmed, the top star, the sentiment and the framework of the bike have been given the glossy accents treatment.

I am entering this into 3 challenges
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Summer - bit of a fair weather cyclist myself!
Papertake Weekly - Fun, Fun, Fun
Cupcake challenge - Summer Delights

Catch up soon
