I thought I would make another easel card for this challenge......I don't make one for ages then every other card is an easel lol
A couple of the cards were made for weddings a couple of weeks ago but I forgot to upload them
Another fab sketch from the DT over on the Sketch Saturday blog
...and there's more!!! I made the next card using this week's Papertake Weekly challenge sketch
I've spent the last 24 hours making cards for hubby for weddings from Saturday until the end of August so the sketches, challenges etc always come in handy as do digi stamps. I've made 11 but have one more to make, then when we get back from our hols I can make a start on Septembers!! I've already made a card for Kathy's Waffle sketch but thought I would revisit and give it another go as I thought it lent itsself perfectly to C6 landscape cards.
This is another of Dawn's brilliant sketches over on the ICS blog this week
Yesterday saw the wedding of a lovely couple who I first met about two years ago. I made their invitations early last year and was privileged to have been asked to make all of the reception stationery and flowers too. I was also lucky enough to have been invited to the wedding and although I couldn't go to the reception or the evening do because hubby was working, I did go to church to see them married and it really made everything very special indeed. We have become friends and I will keep in touch with them....congratulations Jo & Phil :)
I actually made the card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge, sponsored by Teri's Delicious Doodles, which meant layering up the image on your card. The only problem is that I forgot to photograph the card laying down to show the three layers of my bride and groom! I wonder if they will still have me :)
Orders of service
I'm in the process of clearing off my desktop on my lap top which is where I dump all my pictures till I sort them. I know it's a bad habit and I should really put them straight onto my external hard drive but I don't, then I have a mammoth session like tonight where it takes me bloomin hours to sort it out lol
So these orders were from back in June!!
A fortieth birthday
As you probably know if you pop by here often, I always make DH a card for him to take to work to give to the person whose party or wedding it is. This time of year (and Ch******s) are what he calls the 'silly season' and he means that we don't get to see each other much lol We are currently at the height of the wedding season so he spends more time at the local hotel than he does at home :) I made him a few cards recently and have to make 10 for him from now until we get back from our hols! They have to be quick to make so I usually use digi stamps and assorted card sketches. (My new item on the Sketch and stash challenge is the Papermania 'Confetti 'papers)
These are the ones he has taken over the last few weeks
is the theme for Tracy's challenge on Rosie D's blog for this fortnight and her brief is
"we want to see any creations with animals on. Whether it be as big as an elephant or as small as a mouse. But an animal needs to be your main feature on your creation. So if you need to blow the dust off one of your animal stamps and give it an inking please join in. And the prize this week is:-"
I am also entering this card in the Papertake Weekly challenge as I think it definitely meets the brief of Cutie Patootie-so anything goes this week, as long as it’s cute cute cute!!!!
I won my little elephant stamp (coloured with Promarkers) a couple of years ago in some blog candy and he is just so cute. Paper is by Pink Petticoat, Card Candy is from Craftwork Cards, sentiment is by Papermania and the ribbon and fish charm were from my stash.
Thanks for taking the time to look and I hope you can pop over and join in with Tracy's lovely challenge.
