A few today.

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 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)
Creative Card Crew - birds
Top tip Tuesday - things with wings (ends 23/10.12)

 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
