Birthday Present

Well the weather better  today typical once the school goes back, I was having a play around last night it was either that or watch cricket on the tv so I chose the best option !! This is a sugar nellie stamp, coloured in with prismas, I mounted it onto pink card, I also embossed the white background although you dont see it very well on photo, I used my new M bossibilities to do it and I can see this one getting used quite a lot , they are great 2 embossing folders for the price of 1 and they emboss so well and they also looked really good distressed. I tied this ribbon on my card after a lesson from Charlotte at the papeterie it was so easy and really nice.  Gems and mini pearls are from stash.  Of now for a play around with my cricut now to see if I can get a fancy shaped card for my friends 50th. Catch up soon. Aud x

Wedding Day

Well back from a great afternoon at the papeterie so thought I would just do a quick post to let you see what we did. It was a wedding class and we did invitations, menu cards, place card and even little favours and I have to say it was absolutely great I thoroughly enjoyed it and charlotte gaves us lovely ideas for very classy stationery. She really was very good and I would say it was money well spent. And of course I had to have a wee spend after as well, so all in all a great day.  And sandwiches and a  lovley cupcake for our Lunch. Catch up with you all tomorrow. Aud x

Sew Mice

Weather a bit dodgy with us here in the North East, sun one minute and snow showers the next, was supposed to be going to the opening of our bowling green today but i think I will be spectating instead of playing as its too cold, and will only play havoc with my health, the temperature has taken a drop and it is so cold so will stay in and keep warm,. on to my card for today.. This is a penny black stamp and just love it its so cute, my mice look coloured in a bit funny in my photo but they are actually ok in real, used my prismas to colour them in, papers were freebies from a magazine. Border punch is a fiskars I do like them the cut really well, decorated up with pearls from stash. Off now to get my glad rags on and head down to the bowling green, dont know if I will be blogging tomorrow as Im heading into the to a wedding class with Charlotte so really looking forward to it as she has some lovely Wedding Stationery  but will try my best to let you see what we do. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Aud x

Good afternoon to all my crafty buddies the weather isnt very good, its raining and really dreary here today but unfortaunately we cant do much about the weather.  Been on holiday all week and not ventured far at all which Im disappointed about but there is always next week, but Ive had a great time in my craft room doing different cards although most have been anniversary ones, and Ive also got my inviations all finished which is a boost and Im now doing samples for another couple. I went to Insch yesterday to see my crafty friend Elaine and as usual she gave me some great ideas, and of course who else did I meet their but my other crafty buddy Carol, so we had a quick news with her although her visit was short and sweet as her hubby was waiting outside for her. So on to my card , Im not sure what these papers are they were in my stash , the image is a fizzy moon coloured in with prismas, gems candy and ribbon is also from stash. So Im off now to get my haircut and then we will see what the weekend has in store for me.  Catch up with you all tomorrow. Aud x
