Well I'm back only after a week from my last post AMAZIN'!!! On Saturday the girls popped around for some stamping, chatting and yummy carrot cake. We had a great afternoon and lots of variations on the cards were made, and waving to Robyn who popped around Sunday to do hers.
We did 3 each of male/female (boys/girls) birthday cards and the girls told me they liked them so I hope you do too. I won't go through all the list of products so if you would like to know anything about the cards drop me a line. They were fantastic easy layouts as they allowed me to use all those smaller pieces of card and DSP we accumulate.
I have to thank Mads for giving me the colour combo of Rich Razz, Temting Turqu & Old Olive a little while was a hit Mads.
The stamp sets we used were PARTY THIS WAY (pge 35) in clear mount and EXTREME ELEMENTS & EXTREME GUITAR (pge 52 & 53) in the catalogue. These are 2 great all round sets to have I just love them both.

Thanks for popping in and let me know what you think as it makes my day.

This card is for our nephew & his gorgeous new fiance. Adam & Natalya got engaged just before Christmas and we are off to their engagement party this Saturday. It is a very special one as Adam is the 1st grandchild on my hubbys side to get engaged, so we are over the moon as they are just meant to be!!!
I kept it very simple and in the colours that Natalya loves. They have also asked me to do their wedding invitations which I am super nervous about....OK super duper nervous. I have told them I will do some samples and if they don't like them they can sack me and move on to the professional people!!!!LOL
Sorry about the light in the photo as it was not great here today(oh and it's also the photograher).

I no, I no!!! It's been forever...3 months in fact, YEEKS!!! I can't really say where I've been or what I've been doing, but I'm back.

Anyhoo I had a long over due play with a fabbo colour combo from the super talented girls over at JAI. Pop on over and check out the girls gorgeous designs and the entries for this week.
