Yet more cards...

Am still catching up with blogging and showing my crafty makes over the last month or so...

Sam's Birthday card is a little over the top for my liking, not sure why, think it should have been smaller flowers...


I used the cuttlebug embossing folder at the bottom with sizzix 'daisy' dies and added a sizzix 'fern'. Glitter down the side, sizzix decorative strip 'slobbery kiss' writing and finished off with some butterfly stickers.

Steven made up one from his box of Brenda Pinnick cards for her...



For hubbies Anniversary card, I used a die that gina sent me (having found out she had 2, lol) the peel off's were from the forever friends freebies from a docraft magazine, OK last of the big spenders on hubbies card, lol...



Lastly my niece was the BIG 40, but she didn't want to admit it so I sent her a simple card, but had to still remind her she was 'getting old' (not as old as me though, lol)... The bird and sentiment on the front of the card were an old Dawn Bibby kit I forgot I had, until it fell out of a box I was sorting the other day, hehehe, the added words were using a 3d Dymo tape...





As I said in a post last week, Sam and I had popped along to Basingstoke to have a look at centre pieces for her wedding next year. Well she did settle on them, very pretty, but will not describe them to you though, as not sure if she wants people knowing things just yet, also I've now started her wedding invites...

On the way back we stopped off at Port Solent for some lunch and had a mooch is Paver's again, but this time it was me that ended up buying a bag, lol... I loved the brightness of it and the compartments inside, just hope I don't loose things in there, as rather a bigger bag than I usually have, hehehe



(I nearly came home with the colourful zipped one too, but it didn't sit on my shoulders right, well it has to feel comfy, lol)...

Great bag Maria - we always used to stop at the Pavers shop in Dover on our way back from our "park and shop" trips.
