The Wedding

Oh dear I really must do some more regular blogging. I have done some crafting since February honest!!! Paul's brother got married last weekend so I was inspired to have a go at a towel cake and here is my first creation. To go with it I made a horseshoe (which has got a real horse shoe inside it) for Matthew to present to the bride. Last but not least I had just had to use the LOTV bride and groom to make the card.  We had a lovely day catching up with Paul's family who a spread out around the country and therefore rarely get together in one place.  Of course the sun shone all day and the bride and groom looked radiantly happy.

It's birthday season

Well half term is virtually over - I feel just as tired as when we broke up and haven't accomplished half of things I was hoping too. I did fit in a successful shopping trip with my mother in law for her 'Mother of the Groom' outfit. Amber got a gorgeous fascinator and bag to go with her 'usherette' dress. (She isn't very keen on it as she's not really a pink girl, and it is very pink, but with a few grown up accessories I think it will be ok.) So a busy time ahead, loads of family birthdays next month, two weddings in May and June - one of which I've been asked to do the invites for - I've just got to find myself an outfit and of course a fabulous hat.

This card is for my neice, she is a talented baker and is very good at decorating both large cakes and cupcakes, so I think she will like this.

The image is from LOTV, coloured with promarkers.

Happy Valentines Day

I know it's been a while, but my crafting has been very last minute recently and I haven't got round to taking photos before things have had to be popped in the post. I haven't actually had much crafting time since I embarked on my new job, even my Kaisercraft Advent Calender is still work in progress, well that's something to look forward to for Christmas 2012!!!!
Here is my valentine card for my other half - this will be the 20th Valentine card I've sent to him, and I should think that at least half of them were hand made. He can be quite romantic - but not usually when it comes to valentines day - so I shan't be holding my breath tomorrow - it's usually all or nothing - as he reminds me most valentines days - our wedding anniversary is our special day (such a male response to valentines).
The heart and waterfall of hearts were cut with the Cricut. the stamp is from qvc, I used shrink plastic for the smaller hearts. I took a long time to buy some distress inks but now I'm addicted to them - I've used them for stamping and distressing.
