Happy Monday!!!!

I think I must have a black & cream thing going on, mind you I do think these colours together are very classy, especially for a wedding.

Anyway, here’s a wedding card I’ve made…..

I’ve used an 8″x8″ cream card blank for the base, the plastic overlay on the left hand side  and the black lacy border were from a kit I got from QVC ages ago.Then I’ve die cut the bride & groom using a Quickutz die and the words using a sizzix die, the “on your” words were stamped and punched out using two Stampin Up punches. I’ve added some pearls here and there to finish it off.

The challenge over at Polka doodles is ” Tie the knot”

Hi Everyone.

I know I’ve been a bad blogger but what with having no phone and internet problems for the last 3 weeks, with still no sign of a resolution, blogging is a bit of a problem. But hey ho let’s hope it gets sorted sooooon.

Anyway, it was my friend Mandy’s birthday this week, this is the card I made for her…..

I’ve used a BCE template called ” circle step card” to make the base card ( I think this gives the card lots of dimension) and then cut a doily and 2 motifs from the spellbinders ” Fleur de lis motifs” set of dies and a border using the “Fleur de lis accents” set.

The girlie image is a stamp by Lili of the Valley called ” New Hat”, isn’t she a sweetie? She’s mostly coloured in with different shades of grey promarkers. I’ve also added a few pearls to finish it off.

I’d like to enter this into 3 challenges;

Lili of the Valley ~ “Happy Birthday”

ABC ~ S is for Sugar & Spice.

Papertake Weekly ~ Truly Dimensional.

Thanks for stopping by 😀
