I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it.
I do think that I will probably do another one like it, but using brown or pink rather than the black.
I’m really tired tonight, and think that possibly I might slope off to bed shortly with some colouring, a hot water bottle and my snuggly bed jacket – is old creeping up on me do ya think?
just a really quick, clean and simple card using card blank and green cardstock and pattern paper from set, a spare piece of ribbon, Angel Kisses in old pink, PM green jewel brads, a scrap of pink BG pattern paper (embossed with Cuttlebug folder), “Plant your dreams” stamp (Savvy), Pretty in Pink Ink from SU, Versamagic Dewdrops in Pixie Pink and Gingerbread.
I also used my new SU sprial punch and on the inside of the card the SU flowers and swirls jumbo wheel.
Have to say I like taking photos on the new worksurface in the kitchen, very glossy reflection!
Parental Control, Toodles and I are off to Whipsnade Zoo for the day tomorrow, and then staying at the wonderful Pendley Manor hotel for the night – of course, this means that the Guys’ will be left at home – but apparently they will have a replacement cook in Rob’s girlfriend, Bekka. T’wd seem that she’s been co-opted in to cook supper for the three of them on Saturday night.
So sorry that I’m having to post the images one after the other, blogger still is not being very helpful.
This is just the overall image of the cake – not the most brilliant photo – I really need to get myself a photo studio set up.
Blogger still playing up, and I can only seem to upload the occassional image at the moment. So here is a close up view of the wedding cake “card” that I made last week for my friend to give to the happy couple, bottom layer contains choccies, middle one the foling notes, the top one a little book on love.
After I’d made it I noticed that Bitten by the Bug had put up a challenge for us to use the Mini Monograms cartridge (which is my absolute favourite), and this cake uses that cartridge to make the scallopped squares on top of each box………….so this is my entry therefore!
you can just make out the clear acrylic tag underneath the central flowers, which has a white paisley design on it.
The small daisy flowers (wild flower sheet by Cactus Pink) were coloured in with Sugarloaf markers, and then I ran over them with my Quickie pen and added Art Insitutute glitter.
Then I tied on the acrylic tag with the lovely pink ribbon, and added a Angel Kisses flowers in dirty green and dark pink, with a button from my Rusty Pickle Jar in the middle of them.
I stuck the flowers on the tag with Glossy accents.
Guy took a quick picture with his new camera – apologies it’s come out a bit of a garish pink, in real life it’s quite soft and glittery.
we all had to do file folders to go inside the lunch pail, and this was my entry.
On the outside (which was covered with SEI) I used my large Stampington Cube, a Paper Artsy image and one of the butterflies images from the Walk in the Garden Cartridge (Cricut), oh and a load of Hero Art 3mm gems. The whole thing was edged with Whispers Dye Ink in Plum.
The inside was painted with Twinkling H20’s and then stamped with Hero Arts Butterfly Border and a very old swirly stamp, then a piece of cream ric rac and a purple and white hydrangea by Angel Kisses.

I’m finally catching up on some of my commitments, this is from the UK STampers challenge a good while ago – Define your Space – in which we had to do a label, hanger, etc., to define something in our stamping/scrapping area.
This is my little contribution – and I’ve learnt a salutory lesson – punch the holes with the Crop-adile before you stick on the blasted buttons, so you know that you have enough room!
I used a wood coaster that I’ve had hanging around for ages, and painted it with Rich Gold Jo Sonja’s.
Added a strip of Sweeter “Life in Bloom” paper across the middle, and then added MM rub-ons onto white cardstock (PM White), and covered them completely with Marvy Metallic Gold pen.
Stamped the small postal image from Aud’s Circle Sentiments sheet in Blazing Red StazOn, and coloured the hearts in with Green Gelly Roll pen by Sakura.
The flower is a white Angel kisses small hydrangea with a centre of soft green Perlidoodles.
Along the top seam of the pattern paper, I added PM brown buttons tied with DMC embroidery thread in alternating green and orange. Plus one orange and one brown button also tied with thread near the postal image.
The green ribbon is by Anna Griffin, which I got in a QVC kit ages ago, and has been mouldering at the bottom of the ribbon basket since then.
