Im off to make a 80th birthday card now may have time to post it on my blog before i go away if no i will do it when I come home. Off to Glasgow on friday with Carol till sunday can't wait, going to the drifters concert on friday the craft show sat, sun. Day off on monday to catch up on sleep and charge my batteries up.
Used stampin up baubles with red,green and brown inks bit dissapointed with my red baubles you would think i'd been at the gin bottle I shoulve used my stamp a ma jig to get it straight used cutter to scallop edges of green card then used craftworks candy and glitter, looks a bit dull but it is brighter when you see it.

I can't help using this stamp I think I will be doing most of my cards with this one it is so versatile loads of different ways to put it onto a card, use snow burst snowflake stamps and stamped my own background paper silver ink onto black card i wished i had embossed it, never mind something else to try for another card. Dasher onto white card them snowflake stamped again with silver, then mounted it onto red card just to lift it. Ribbon and gems from my wee stash, well it is wee compared to Kath's ....

Diamond Wedding Card, I made what an achievement lasting 60 years, some dont even last 6 years. Used stampin up bridal papers, x cut punches for the borders and corners and a sizzix embossing folder cut hearts out with nesties (Lily's) when I had a shot of them new that hearts would come in handy and just love them done with the bridal papers. Added pearls and gems to jazz it up. This card looks better when you see it for real.

Not done much crafting today decided to tidy the craft room oh me........ what I thought would take and hour or so took me all day but I still managed to squeeze in dasher, backing paper from kanban and ribbon from my stash I stamped the black backing paper then embossed with silver cut out snowflakes and stamped sentiment then glitzed up with the good old glamour dust and gems.

This card certainly gave my stress levels a boost.. Bought this paper in Elgin really liked it and wanted to put just a snowflake on it just to lift it, well that was the easy bit, then cut a border with Martha Stewart snowflake , and ribbon from stash and craftworks candy, but what about the sentiment well I tried 4 different stamps and i printed some on my computer but didn't like any of them so I had to fall back on the good old peel offs, hardly use them now but nothing else looked right. Thankfully all my cards aren't as stressful to make or what a mess I'd be in or the old gin bottle would get laldy....

Well so much for going to Elgin and not buying any crafty goodies, these stamps fell into my basket and they were like a magnet to me when I tried to come out of the shop.... so I just had to have them. Merry Christmas stamp and the green backing paper were from bee crafty and the snowflake one was from inkadinkadoo, from papercraft they were great value 6 different snowflakes in the pack. The gems were from my little stash. Not sure if I need something in the right hand corner or not. What do you think ????? I have paper clipped my card together so you could see it properly. I will post the card open as well.
