My goodness I have been a busy bee! No wonder I have been feeling so down and mojoless! Here is what I have been up to: 3 days after we got back from Thailand, my husband left for a camping trip and I had a workshop, these are 2 of the cards we made:I know that I got inspiration for this top card from somewhere on SCS but do you think I can find it again? No! So sorry if it is you, please let me know and I will give credit where credit is due! This bottom one is a case from Marelle Taylor's blog, isn't it gorgeous?
Then, last Saturday night my friend Phil came over for a bit of a stamping session. I was not really with it but I managed to make this card using her Fifth Avenue stamp set.
She brought over this darling little bag for me to see. They made them at a team meeting that I missed while I was away. I cant wait to have some time to make one!I used the same "faux leather" technique to re-create this card for my friend's birthday coming up:Sunday, Mother's Day and I had to go back to work! So sad! My Mum looked after my girls for me, and after work I had a coffee with her, then over to Hubby's Mum's for afternoon tea with her. Here is the front of my Mum's Mother's Day cardAnd this was the inside. As the card doesn't stand up I put a magnet on the back so she could put it on her fridge.
I made this one for my husbads Mum:The next week sort of went by in a blur, trying to get back in to the habit of getting up, dressed and ready for school by 8am, not fun! We got there in the end. My husband got back late Thursday afternoon, then Friday was straight into preparations for my baby Matilda's 3rd birthday which was Saturday. Here is the card that Philippa made for her using a Tilda stamp (of course):
And my friend Sarah made this card using a retired stamp set that I cant remember the name of but it is super cute:And I made this one for her using the retired Pretty Princess set. I am not sure if you can you tell nut my girl loves her bling bling? That is why we have a rhinestone encrusted crown & dress plus sparkly shoes, glittery centers of each flower and silver stars where ever they will fit!lol! All of these cards look so much better IRL, my camera seems to be playing up a bit since we got home from Thailand, maybe the humidity has messed with it, or maybe we changed a setting? I may have to try and find the manual.
And here is the birthday girl herself, looking like a complete angel in her new ladybug dress up!
Well, this has been a super long post, I hope that I have not bored you too much but now you are all caught you up with what has been happening in my world.
