Well this is a card Ive killed two birds with one stone my crafting friend Helen is having a crafty afternoon tomorrow but unfortunately I have to work (to earn more money for crafty goodies) so she kindly sent me the sketch that they are going to be using so I also needed to make a silver wedding card so Ive used the sketch and really pleased with it. Used SU bridal paper ooh they are going down fast and I can't get more, never mind, I also used swiss dots embossing folder and an another one cant remember what its called, the stamp is hero arts have used it quite a lot and only had it a couple of weeks but it is just so versatile. Used nesties for the squares and gems, pearls and candy from stash. Still haven't decided on that other card I was doing today but we will see what a new day says.
Card for a friend used stampin up papers again, it amazing what you find in your stash (oops) i actually forgot I had these and they are so bonny as well how could I forget.. Used the vintage vogue SU stamps and cut out a few of the flowers and the F and built them up to stand out a bit although you don't see it on the photo used SU ribbon and gems from stash.
Well what is on my desk today it is a card that Ive made that is stressing me out its needing something but just don't know what Im not having a good week with cards the mojo just isnt there., so I've put aside and im now making flowers with my nesties they have came out like a carnation quite bonny then I just put a pearl in the middle. Will try going back to my card at night sometimes you just need to leave it then go back. I hope anyway.

This is a birthday card made using the personal impressions stamp again but it is the smaller one and also the sentiments from it as well used SU rich razzleberry paper and ink and also the stampin up papers to go with it. Pearls from stash and glitzed it up with glamour dust.
Well got all my card orders finished in the meantime so thought I would have a play around with my new stamps, going to do some thank you cards for my box so here is no.1 . Used the personal impressions stamp and embossed it with clear powder, the same with the thank you mounted the white onto black card then just added a bit of ribbon and some gems, and put some stickles onto the image, plain jayne but really pleased with it and it was so simple.
Well not much happened here in my craft room today, I've spent most of the morning tinkering about with this new punch from xcut, I could've had a card made the time I've taken to try and get it to work properly, also on my desk is my new personnel impressions stamp and the new papercraft magazine whichI always like a look at for new ideas and products. Best get off and make ready for work now...
