Well i've decided to take the plunge and enter some challenges. I'm starting off with one card and entering it into 2 challenges.

the first challenge is 'The Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge' and the theme is Favourite colour combination and obviously mine is pink and green, i think the colours work so well together and i think that the particular colours i have used are fresh and very 'Spring'.

The second Challenge is 'Passion for Promarkers' and the theme for this is 'In the Garden' so i've used one of my favourite Magnolia images - Tilda and Ladybug - i've used flowery papers, punched butterflies, paper roses and a rose charm.

for this card i have used:
Paper - My Mind's Eye, Card - Core'dinations, Ribbon - from stash, Butterflies - Martha stewart Bborder punch, image - Magnolia, flowers - papermania, charm - ebay and the image was coloured with promarkers.

thanks for looking xx

Productive Day

Well i did it, i finished 4 more cards for my brothers birthday, i'm seriously 'male carded out' now though let's hope noone else asks me for a card for him because they are likely to get something pink and flowery! Anyway in addition to the ship card in my previous post here are my offerings:

Right then, on with the invitations... *sigh*

Busy Weekend!

Good afternoon everyone!!!!

well i've had an extrmely productive weekend so far! i've finally assembled all the components for the commissioned wedding invites i'm making so they just need to be put together and the inserts printing and i'm done!

The spec for the invites was burgundy, scotty dogs and wedding rings, so i knocked up a sample for the bride to be and she loved it, YAY! Here's where i'm up to so far:-

Also my brother's birthday is on Thursday so i have to make 5 cards for him (from me, my little bro, mum & dad, sis-in-law and neice). i find men's card difficult at the best of times but when i have to make 5 at once and for the same person it's really easy to run out of inspiration! Anyway i've managed to knock up one so far. this one is from me:-

Right, best crack on so many cards so little time! Enjoy what's left of the weekend!
