Mothers Day

Hi there, firstly I would like to welcome my new followers, I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving me some love.
I'm still making my Mother's Day cards, this one is using a LOTV stamp, I must admit it's months since I used a stamp I seem to just be using Digi's at the moment but I ran out of ink on my printer, Doh I usually have a couple in stock but not this time, unless I've lost them in my mess of a craft room.
The papers are Basi Grey, the image was coloured in with copics and glitter, I used my Nesties and a Memory Box border die. I use the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Friends wedding

Hiya, what a great weekend we had, the weather was almost Spring like and I actually got my washing dry outside for a change.
I was asked to make a card for a couple that are having a Wedding Extravaganza, all the guests have been asked to bring a plate of food for the reception instead of gifts (great if your getting married on a budget), they are also into the 50's and bunting,
I used a Kenny K image coloured with copics the edges distressed with inks, bunting die from Memory Box,   ivory net voile, nestie's , paper flower, pearl heart, clear gems and the sentiments were generated on my computer, oh yes and the veil and tiara are glittered but they don't show up in this photo, I'll certainly be pleased when the lighter nights come and I don't need lights to take a photo.
