Another Wedding Card

Evening all,

Here's my latest card - they've been a bit thin on the ground recently I just seem to have loads going on.  My little girl is 4 at the weekend so I've been making bunting and arranging her party!

I've also run out of colouring card, I know I've got two precious sheets left - but just can't find it.   I've ordered some more and hopefully it'll be here by Saturday as I still need to make her birthday card and if it doesn't turn up I'll have to make an emergency trip to the craft shop!

This is a card I made for a family wedding at the weekend.  It uses the same image as my last card share from Tiddly Inks, I really do like this image.  I'm not too sure if I like this card though - I think it's just the fact that it's not really in my normal style (not that I have any style - but you know what I mean!)  You'll have to let me know what you think - I think the ink on the image might be a bit too strong and should have been a more of a chocolatey-brown.

Anyway I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Colour Crazy (this is a crazy colour combo for me!)
The Paper Shelter - Layers and Layers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - Two Patterned Papers
Southern Girls - It's all about Flora
Little Claire's - Best Friends
Whimsy Stamps - Lots of Layers

That's all for me - time for a bit of look around lots of fabulous blogs and then bed!

Thanks for looking!

Stampin' For the Weekend - Pearls and Swirls


Hope you're all ready for the weekend.

This morning a new challenge launches over at Stampin' for the Weekend:

We have a fabulous sponsor this time:

They have provided a lovely prize of a ribbon and embellishment bundle - it's fab - I wish I could win it!!

So the theme this week is Pearl and Swirls - and here's my take on the challenge:

I made this a while back for a friends wedding.  I love the swirly paper - it books embossed but its more like a foam.  I've got some bits of it left - and I keep looking at it.  I'm saving it for something special - not sure what that is though.

The image is from Tiddly Inks - I can't remember it's name - but I think it's just beautiful.

Anyway you really should pop over and check out what my teamies have made - there are some beautiful creations!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy - Include a Sentiment
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Hip to be Square
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!!

Craft Your Days Away - Olympic Dreams

Has anyone noticed there has been a bit of sport on TV - something called the Olympics?
I couldn't be any less sporty - but I've really been getting into it!

I especially liked the opening ceremony, one of my friends was dancing in the section for the NHS and children's literature, we had hoped to see her but we didn't.

So over at Craft Your Days Away we have our new challenge launching today called Olympic Dreams!

And we have a fabulous sponsor - Bugaboo!!

Here's my card for the challenge - let's just say I had a few technical difficulties making a card!! Which my blog teamies have heard me moaning about - but I'll spare you all the details!

Anyway I really hope you can join us for this challenge, so why not pop over and see what fabulous creations the rest of the girls have made, especially as this is our penultimate challenge. The lovely Joanne has decided to bring Craft Your Day's Away to an end. Sob Sob!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Stamping Boutique - Anything Goes
Do You Stack Up - Polka Dots
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
