Sweet Stampin' "In Stitches" Challenge.

Hi Girls.

Saturday, means a Challenge is waiting for you over at Sweet Stampin'. This week it's "In Stitches".
I have chosen to do mock stitching on this card, even though I like to use real stitching occasionally.
Our sponsors this week are Di's Digi's.

My Daughter's work friend wanted a Wedding Card for her Son and his Wife.
I nearly always use a LOTV image for this type of card. Everyone loves this Wedding image (including me). The papers are a mix of LOTV and Pion, the gorgeous hanging hearts are a Christmas Pressy off my Bestest Friend Angie, what a great pressy. Ta Ang!
The pearls are Hobby House and Sentiment is PC generated.

Is it Johnny Depp!!

Hi Girls, Hope I find you all well, we had rain, bright sunshine and hail all in one day today....daft!

I have been busy making Diamond Wedding Invitations this week for a couple round the corner. I don't know them but they were a lovely couple who had been together over 70 years, how wonderful is that?

I have a Large Tag to show you today.
I have used a Prima Doll Tag for the base and blended the background with Tim inks, and then covered it in bits of washi tape. I have also used a Studio 90 Stencil in a Honeycomb pattern on the background.
The Sentiment is from a Sam Poole set called "Art Phrases". The Stamped image is The Mad Hatter by Octopode, this image always reminds me of Johnny Depp!! (I think as Willy Wonka!!) The image is coloured with Pro-Markers.

Here's hoping.....

Hi Girls~

Not 100% sure, but looks like "Adorable Hubby" has fixed my photo problem on the Blog by downloading Google Chrome, so fingers and everything else crossed it's gunna work!
I still have a feeling it's all going to go wrong again!

This is a wedding card made for one of my Daughters work friends, did not intend to show this card today, but in order to test out Google Chrome, I decided to put it on.
Image is LOTV, papers are all from my stash. The ribbon slider is Mei Flowers and the little flowers are from my flower stash.

Nice to be back...How are you all?

Hi Girls
Happy New Year to all my followers old and new, hope you all had a great time.

My Christmas and Christmas Day Birthday was brilliant and although I had a couple of friend's around to celebrate New Year, it was really hard for me as my beautiful Nana of 97 years of age died on December 30th. We have our Birthday together as she was a Christmas Day baby too, she had a fab long life, and as she lived with my Mum I saw her weekly. She was a wonderful lady and Wednesday is her Funeral and the Celebration of her life. She will be missed but not forgotten.
I am very pleased to tell you some good news aswell....My Daughter and her Boyfriend Sean got Engaged on their 7th Anniversary just before Christmas, we are so Happy for them, he is a wonderful man and together they are just a perfect pair, hope the wedding is not quite yet tho', as I think I need to earn some money first!!

The First card for 2014 I have to show you is for my lovely Daughters Birthday which is on January 22nd. I have used a LOTV Art Pad image, some papers from my stash and a NS punched flower.
