Birthday Girl

Busy busy with xmas cards etc but getting threw my orders and only one event left 8th Dec which is never really that busy but nice to have some stalls at it for the punters its the night santa arrives in huntly and the xmas lights are switched on then people come for a coffee and mincemeat pie. Birthday card instead of xmas and did the good old faithful easel card and use a LOTV square, cut with nesties the edge is done using my new nestie that I got from my mum for my birthday and I must say my big shot is red hot just now but loving it in fact I think I like it better than the cuttlebug everything just seems to be coming out so crisp and sharp cut and embossed. Papers are from either simply create or papercrafts Elgin, and stampin up along with the ribbon from there as well, gems and pearls are from my stash. Off back to the desk to crack on with my orders. Bye for now. Aud x

Well new day today, thankfully all went well or should I say better than yesterday !! Made this easel card for someone and really pleased with the result its one of those toppers you buy and you think why ?? but its came out real nice, cut purple card corners with xcut corner punch, then cream card embossed with dotty folder the border and sentiment is cut out with my new nesties and I think they will be getting used a lot cut a double one for border and matched them up. Gems and pearls fom stash. I have borrowed my mums cuttlebug just now but its my birthday this week so I will maybe be lucky enough to get a new one.

Well got off to a great start to the day got all my stuff ready for my stall at the pancake tea in aid of cancer research in the afternoon, so off I toddled and had a very succesful day they managed to raise a fantastic £863 for cancer which is great, then I toddled home to start amongst my orders again, I lost my rubber mat for embossing with my cuttlebug but my mum very kindly got a new one for me at elgin so I would give it a bash today with my marianne dies and thought it was very stiff so just gave it a tiny wee bit of oomph and oh my did my cuttlebug go out with a bang !!! and now the bloomin thing is completely broken and at my busiest time of the year so to say my stress levels are rocketing is an understatement so sos to my mum to borrow her one so will have a right look at my cuttlebug but its looking like it will be in the wheelie bin I am not impressed and the air is blue blue. Poor Robbie phoned me and he thought something was wrong with me as I was crying Im totally gutted and he said if thats all we'll get a new one there is worse things have happened he said chill- chill i was boiling... So thats my saga for today but boy do I feel better getting that off my chest so I hope I havent bored you, and as they say tomorrow is another day..so here's hoping its a better one for me. But getting back to my card made this engagement card for a friend of my sisters who wanted simple but nice so I hope this will be okay for her. Used my nesties for the hearts embossed with divine swirl and cut the border with my new nesties and embossed the layer with swiss dots, added pearls and gems from stash. Hope tomorrow will be better. Good night. Aud x

Crazy Golf

Made this card today for a golfer who has reached the big 50, was fine to do a birthday card instead of a xmas one, cut the easel shaped card on my cricut, then embossed the top part with a folder to make it look like a golf ball then added image its fom Kenny k coloured in with prismas, sentiment done on computer then cut with nesties finished off with candy. Off now to get the glad rags on as away to prizegiving at foggie bowling club, no prizes there to collect although I think Robbie should get the one for being the most sociable as he always seems to come home from there as if he's had a very very sociable day/ night !!!! Catch up soon. Aud x

Money Handbags

Well been pottering around today trying to make money wallets, so used my cricut to cut out top note shape as I did with the gift card ones but thought I would jazz them up like a wee radley bag then I glitzed them up with gems and just added a sentiment , did a gift for you as opposed to xmas so people can use them for birthdays as well. The bottom picture is the inside of the bag, it was the most footery bit, was knocking my stress levels a wee bit high but hay ho I managed. really pleased with the end result. Got a sale tonight at the kindergarden so hopefully will sell a few. Aud x

Present Just For You

Well thats another week nearly passed, I had a very successful coffee morning yesterday selling my cards etc, so been busy making more for this sat. Used LOTV stamp for this although I dont think it is a xmas stamp but thought it would pass . Coloured it in with prismas then cut with nesties and mounted onto checked paper from my stash I think they were a freebie with one of the magazines. I used snowflake embossing folder and cut the edges with MS punch, ribbon gems and pearls from stash. Away now to cook tea as Ive been very unsociable today sitting up in my craft room allday, Robbie doesnt mind as it means he gets the tv all to himself. Catch up again soon. Aud x
