At long last.........................

I have some cards to show but not on here LOL. I started a new blog around this time last year solely as a show case for my cards, posted 3 cards I think & never went back LOL. TomMe Cards is now up & running. Needs a lot of work but will have to wait till after Christmas. I have a card party today & am just off to take some pics of my table. Hopefully by this evening it will be virtually empty hahaha

Wedding card

made to match the bride's dress - I hope. My brief was black & white with a splash of red & very simple. I kept it simple but large - A4 - using b&w vellum from my stash, bright red ribbon & little black pearls on the 'O' in both their names. Inside the front piece - flowers, heart & rings. Hope the customer & the bride & groom like it.
Really must learn to take better photographs !!!

My gorgeous girl

on her 4th birthday with her cousin George. She had had a lovely day starting with candles in her breakfast brioche- lol - & then on to soft play for a party with her friends. This photo was taken in the evening at her favourite restaurant. Her one big disappointment was that George wouldn't dance with her -lol.

It seems a very long time

since I posted on here. It's not that I haven't been making cards - just my usual forgetting to take photos LOL I do have 2 to show today both for our lovely granddaughter. I can't believe she's going to be 4 at the weekend! One is from us & the other from Unkey Daves lol
We had a lovely time on our weekend away at Appleby Magna. Have a look at Pam blog to see where we stayed & what we got up to. It was slightly marred by the fact that Debs had to be taken to hospital.
I'm afraid Lily's magic wand didn't work on me because I have since discovered that I have a wedge fracture & am still in a fair bit of pain .

have forgotten to mention that at long last our weekend is here. It will be a weekend of crafting, eating , drinking,nattering & therapies. Seems to have taken ages to get this far & suddenly it's tomorrow. I am so looking forward to seeing friends & meeting a couple of new ones too & I do need a bit of R & R. Hopefully I shall have some photos to post on Sunday.

Two cards

One very special one because it was made not by me but for me & was delivered along with the wave of a magic wand to make my back better.( I had another fall) I love my granddaughter ' big as the world' lol. The other is just one of mine & got no magic in it at all lol

I got to play again

with my elephant stamp. A lady that had seen Chloe's christening card asked me to make new baby cards using that stamp - one of each. A favourite PB one came next. I usually colour her in blues & pinks so went for a complete change this time. The anniversary card is just a beautiful backing paper with my first attempt at FPC roses & some gems.
I am really busy at the moment & as usual forget to take photos of all my cards but I will try to improve on that score. lol

Just a couple

of the several cards I've made this week. One is very simple but, I hope, effective merely using some 'strokable' (cardmakers will know what I mean lol) paper which I glittered & a couple of butterflies. The other is a stamped & painted one. I am trying very hard to improve my colouring but it's not consistent. Some days good........... some days bad. lol

Cards for.................

Silvana & Sarah. Silvana's was a simple Anita's decoupage which I thought went really well with the Kanban card blank. The champagne bottle on Sarah's was hand cut & although it's not perfect I was quite pleased with it & my customer loves it.

Where does the time go?

Although I do know where 5 days went last week. DH & I took our granddaughter away for a few days to Somerset. We had a lovely time but came home exhausted. Not doing it next year!! She'll be at school by then & I refuse to have time away when the schools are on holiday - LOL!
I have been quite busy since we got back but only have a few simple decoupaged cards to show for it.
I would appreciate any comments - good or bad!
