Forever Friends Challenge - Celebrate

Good Morning Ladies

It's the most lovable Bears 21st Birthday from Forever Friends and over on the
Forever Friends Challenge Blog they are having a Celebration Challenge, you can design a card for any sort of celebration. You could be in with a chance to win a folder of Forever Friends Images from the DT Members.

I had a Wedding card to make for our close friends Ben & Cath who are getting married tomorrow, Rene is an Usher and has to get all dressed up (this is rare for him as the last time he was in a suit was at our wedding 2 years ago!!) He got is suit yesterday and the shirt doesn't fit - he can just about get it over his arms and there was no way he was going to get it done up! Major panic by the groom (bless him) but we will get it sorted later.

Sorry back to the card....

Here is the inside....

I have even made a gift envelope....

There was nowhere to write our message so I had to decorate to back....

I think I got a bit carried away but I think it was worth it!!

What I have used:

Forever Friends - Decoupage Party Bag
Forever Friends - With Love Paper - Confetti
Bazzill Bling Paper - Lilac
Mirry Card - Silver
Embossed Paper - Silver
Sentiment - From Express Yourself
Bling, Button, Charm, Gem's, Mulberry Flowers, Organza Ribbon and Tulle - From Stash
Quickuts - Nesting Labels and Champagne Flutes

Sorry for the long post. It is now poring with rain here in the South of England, I hope it brightens up for tomorrow.

Kind Regards

The Anniversay Card

and the message.....

Good Evening Ladies

I'm back with another post, this is the Anniversary Card I made for my lovely husband. He is car mad and this is his favourite car - VW Beetle. When we first met he had a Green VW Beetle 1300. It was his baby, the only thing was it spent more time off the road than on!! He would spend hours tinkering with it and he spent an absolute fortune on it. So when I found this stamp by
Little Claire Designs it was a must.

I had no intention of entering this into any challenges but it fits with a challenge and an entry for Blog Candy!!

The challenge is for Papertake Weekly Challenge Challenge 19 Sketch.

To be entered for the Blog Candy you have to leave a link Crafty Goings On to a card you made with a download or a stamped image and a link to the candy on your blog (please see the picture on the side for the Copics which is also linked).

Here is what I used:

Stamped Image - By Little Claire Designs
Pattern Paper - Baby Powder By Imaginisce
Plain Paper - Bazzill Bling, sorry I didn't make a note of the colours
Ribbon and Tulle - From Stash
Charm - From Stash
Blue Pearls - By Crystal Stickers
Sentiment(outside card) - Papermania
Sentiment(inside card) - In Stitch'z By Bazzill

Well I hope you all have a good weekend.



Afternoon Ladies

Special Day Today

Good Evening Ladies

Well it was rather a special day today as it was our Wedding Anniversary (our second), I woke up this morning to 2 wonderful bouquets of flowers and a card. My card to Rene was not ready and I told him he would have to wait until later, I think he thought I had forgotten, I hadn't but they seem to forget you have a lot more to do in a day than them!!!

I have taken some pictures of the flowers......

.... they are just so beautiful.

I did finish the card and presented it to him tonight with a lovely meal and he absolutely loved it, I will do another post on the blog as I want to enter it for a challenge as well - lol.

Well nothing changes - he's now playing on the xbox and I have been left with the washing up.

I will just leave you with one last picture....

Hello to you all,

Well it's been another bright day today. Well I hope you all had a good weekend. The boys are driving me mad with the big count down to the last day at school, 7 days left with a groan from me and big hooray from them.

Well I have done another card (don't fall over) I have been a very busy bee and I am back in the swing of it now. This is not for a challenge just for my friend at work. There are 3 of us who craft in my office so there is always a little bit of competition!!

What I have Used;

Pattern Paper - Anna Griffin
Layered Card - Bazill Bling and used my Quickutz Nesting Labels
Assortment of Flowers - From Stash
The Tags were inked in Yellow and then the sentiments from Papermania were stamped in Pink.
Added some pearls and Bing from Stash.

I think that has covered it all. Hope you have a good evening, it's bath time for the boys ad an early night!!

Kind Regards
