One Stop - Swirls & Pearls

Hello again, back to plan I hope again, the challange over at One Stop Craft - "Pearls & Swirls" was so handy for me this week as I had to make a card for my father and step-mother's 30th (Pearl) Wedding Anniversary.

I think that this is an Anita's stamp which was one of the first stamps I bought, I painted it with my watercolour paints then 3D glossed over it. Used Cuttlebug Swirls and Swiss Dots embossing folders and popped on some pearls (plastic) ramdomly.
I think this is me for this evening, hope everyone is having an enjoyable one. hugs

Sugar Bowl - doodling

Evening folks, back again. Got side tracking into making a Christmas card this afternoon. The challenge over at the Sugar Bowl is a sketch incorporating doodling.

I have not used this Nellie stamp for ages so I thought I would dig her out. The papers are all from my scrap pile. Ribbon, brads etc... are from stash.
I am officially on my three week holiday countdown and should be starting to get organised. Got our tickets yesterday and, yes, have doubled-checked passports and they are OK. I so hate packing, I usually just end up throwing everything bar the kitchen sink in the case and I ALWAYS forget something. One time a few days into the holiday we realised that we hadn't locked the back door!!!!

3 in 1 Card - Mojo Monday, Cupcake & Colour Create

Afternoon peeps again, well Indiana Jones managed to come up trumps again and now watching the football:) ......don't ask.......force of habit I suppose.
One of my dear friends' wedding anniversary is coming up this month so I thought I better get in the good books and actually send them a card this year instead of remembering a fortnight too
Used the ducks from Penny Black, paper from DCVW spring stack, ribbon, flower dome stickers, bow and hearts from stash.

Still got another two anniversary cards and umpteen birthdays to do................have fun. hugs

Forever Friends

Good afternoon and hope everyone is having a nice relaxing weekend. I certainly am planning to and I have started with the sketch over at Forever Friends. I have a mountain of cards to make for sending to my own family and friends so this is me off the mark.
I have used one of the Forever Friends Elements and paperscraps out my drawer. Cuttlebug embossing folder and peeloffs from stash.
