I realised I haven't put anything on my blog for far too long!
So, I thought I would start with this one...
I was asked..by a colleague, to make this card for a lady who is about to retire.
My Hubby swished over the bird and branch, with his wax on an iron (encaustic art)
and I finished it with my new memory box teeny flowers, (which I have had for a good
few weeks, and not used yet!!) which I cut in blue and white.
The window, shutters and window-box are all memory box dies too.
For the embossed bricks, I used my papermania embossing folder, and inked round the edges.
I am entering this card into the following challenges...
HIMCR68 - die cuts (ends 26/10/12)
This one was one of the more simple ones I made for the wedding commission.
I was asked to make a thank-you card for her wedding day beauty lady.
I embossed the edge, made my own sentiment in word,
added a butterfly and then a splash of stickles glitter to the eyeline and the make-up brush.
She loved this one!
I would like to enter this in the following challenge..
Through the craft room door - anything goes. (ends 23/10/12)
As you may have guessed, this was also for the wedding... a thank-you for the best man.
I took this photo before I put on the "thank-you" sentiment, oops!
I used the wedding colours... and the colours of the best mans suit.
This went down well, too!
I will try and keep up with my blog a little more...
It's only another week till half term so I should have more time then.
Thanks for your comments...I really appreciate them!!! xx
