Wedding Card !!!

Oh, Ok ............... seems as though wedding fever is reaching everywhere !!!! So Igave in and agreed Caitlyn can watch it on tv so I guess its in my mind which is why when I sat down to make a friendship card I came up with this !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mmm !!!! Maybe I will do that tomorrow ........... on Grandma duty Fri and Sat so not much chance then !!! Bless her !

I got out my grand calibur and cut the fancy shaped card, the paper is wrapping paper from Tesco !! Dont know anyone getting married myself yet but I guess I can co-ordinate wrapping paper for a gift with the card when I do !!! Trusty flowers all glittered up and some pearls I got at such a bargain price from NEC !! 6 packs for a tenner !! 100 in a pack !!! BARGAIN !!

Thought I would enter it into the following challenges:
Craftyourpassion - Show us your layers
Shelly's Images - Show us what you've got
Diecut Dreams - Wedding

Its a Girl and a double easel card

Well ............ as I made the twisted easel the other day I thought I would have a go at a double easel card !!! Wow !!! What an amazing effect !!

My cousin is expecting a baby in June so I thought I would make a 'its a girl' card as I have a boy one ready ............ you know odds are she would have a girl if I only had a boy card made !!!!

I have entered this into the Forever Friends monthly challenge, check out the great cards there !

I found the words off the internet and printed them off on the laptop, flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts glittered up, the paper is Papermania and I used a Forever Friends Decoupage.

My partner as I finished this was just shouting wow to my easter card and how clever the twist is, so of course I had to put this under his nose !!! He was amazed at the effect us ladies get with our cards bless him !!

Hope you like it I have taken various pictures of different angles as its not do easy to photograph !!!!!! And no I couldn't resist the flowers !!!

The image is Warren from Craftwork Cards, the flowers are from a Doohickey die which I inked up around the edges and added a paper flower in. The stamped sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, one the new releases I just had to have !!! Paper is from Papermania and the swirl is a Marianne Creatable !!! All stash from the shows !!! Phew ...................... Oh yes and I added some bling !!! A girl just has to add bling hehe!!!! As some of you know Gran isn't well so my Aunt and I are looking after her so card making is a welcome release for us both at present !!! I am entering this into Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything goes and Creative Inspirations - punches and dies; The Crazy Challenge - just add flowers and the Crafty pad challenge too !!!

Grans Birthday card

Hi there all !!! Its my Grans 93rd Birthday on Monday and this is the card I made for her. The photo on it is actually her when she was a bridesmaid to her best friend !! I love this picture.

I used papers from Bearly Mine Designs from the Vintage collection, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used my new purchase my Marianne swirl !! Mmm love it ! I dont have a doily die so I used actual doilys behind the picture, and one inside to write on, on layed papers as the front !

As I lived with Gran when I was a child I am entering this into Paper Plays Challenge for Mum. And into The Crafty Pad challenge - flowers !!

Hope you like it, Have a great day !!
