Sugar Nellie

Was having a play around yesterday experimenting with my cricut, cutout my backing with it then I embossed it but i put my image onto the background I think I shouldve mounted it onto card then on to the embossed card as it has left my card bumpy and crinkly looking so not really pleased with the finished result it actually looks worse in the photo. Away now to get stuck into more wedding invites they are coming on well, I will post them once they are finished and the bride has posted them out. Catch up soon. Aud x

Well I think winter has arrived , really cold with us today and snow showers, what a thought !! But what better to do on a day like this than craft.. been having a play around today so made a new baby card. Used nana's nursery papers then cut out the next layer with cricut using elegant edges cartridge I just love it so versatile and you can make your shape any size, shadow , so easy to layer its just fab..although I still wouldnt be without my nesties. Image is a pennyblack coloured in with prismas. Pearls, ribbon and lace are from my stash although I think looking at my card now I feel my lace is a touch on the wide side it doesnt actually look to bad in the photo but in real it is .  Off now to cook monkfish in curried vegetables, for our tea then out to a quiz night at the bowling club.. We are entering a team but unless the questions consist of food, drink or crafts then I will be no use !! (  Im just the mascot !! ) Catch up with you all soon enjoy the rest of your weekend. Aud
