thank you card

hi guys, sorry it's been a while! I've just been so busy with work, taking on more responsibility etc, and doing general house work stuff that card making has been sadly put on the back burner :( However i owed my nan and Grandad a thank you card as they've been extremely good to me (even more so than usual if that's possible) so i came up with this creation! I've had the flowers for a while and have been itching to do a yellow and orange card but it kept getting forgotten so now i thought was my chance. I'm pleased with the end result after much layout dramas!

Flowers: from my stash

New Cards!

Hi guys, been so busy this week! first week back at school so getting used to having to work till six four days out of five, trying to fit in housework, makin tea and packed lunches, card making and dog walking so cannot wait for the weekend now! I have managed to squeeze in three cards this week though which i'm fairly pleased with though i would always like to have more time to spend on cards (as would we all i'm sure). Did manage to squeeze in a trip to Sir Stampalot on tuesday lunch though as i work literally round the corner! So i treated myself to a gorgeous Rachelle Anne Miller christmas stamp which jut stamps so beautifully! i actually said wow when i stamped it for the first time lol! so crisp and clear! Anyway without further ado here are the cards i've made this week. I'll start with my new stamp!

Hello guys!

Hi it's been ages since i've posted on my blog so I thought i'd post the new cards I made yesterday on it . I've been working like crazy in my craft room this week trying to get general cards, christmas cards and Wedding Stationery completed ready for the local Autumn Fayre that i have a stall at next Sunday. It's my first stall selling my cards so I am very nervous especially as I'm not sure my cards are up to scratch! I look on Docrafts galleries regularly and see all the amazing cards that people put on and wish that mine could look like that! However i do feel that my cards are improving slowly.

So anyway me and my mum are having a stall each at the Autumn Fayre, she has a small business selling wedding hats, fascinators and flowers so she suggested i give wedding stationery a try so we could work together a bit. I've completed six complete wedding stationery sets so far so we'll just have to see I guess (fngers crossed) I'm also trying to create a selection of both everyday and christmas cards to take along as well so people can see a general overview of what i do. Anyway here's some pictures of my latest attempts... i'm sure more will be added this week... watch this space!
