50th for a man

hi guys!
Another card for today I've been spending time trying to cut a design but thought i would have the night on laptop for a change so here's a card i made yesterday for a lady's son in law the insert says (50 is the age of discovery,, you discover your ..............OLD lol.
the card is a blue 5x7 I've used blue card for backing & some flower paper from tragomills paper box all the other papers are from the 10p box,
the image is a clear stamp from its a mans world i just love the set Ive coloured it using pro-markers.
The sentiment i made using Microsoft office & added a few gems to jazz it up, i found the corner punch in my stash of things i bought out of the paper there were three boxes of card making things & i found that one in the bottom it is very painful on my hand to use so i doubt i will be using it often,well that's all for today going to have a very busy day tomorrow its the school fete in the afternoon and i need to bake cakes for sale in the morning ooooppppss I've forgot the eggs got to go love Sarah xxx

A while ago!

Well what a day!
i am so tired but always have time for craft lol, I have just sat down to do a little but thought i would post before i start.
This card i did a little while ago the dress template was made by a lovely friends hubby it is such a elegant look i couldn't resist using it for Libby a young girl i work with. The colours were matching her bridesmaids dresses the paper i got was so pretty but i have no ideal what make now, My friend Cindy picked up the sentiment a while ago so not sure where they came from but a lovely thought as i had only just started to get interested in making cards. The flowers i wrapped in tissue paper around the stems then covered in ribbon to make is look like a bouquet to embellish i used a the same ribbon as the flowers & a few stickers in each of the corners to finish. If i was doing it now i think i would do the finishing touches better but hey ho whats done is done and Libby was very pleased maybe not with the card as much as the voucher inside. Any way hope you enjoy having a look check out tomorrow's blog, tonight I'm going to use a Penny Black stamp for the first time hope it turns out well, good night all love Sarah xoxo

Wednesday, 7 July 2010

Happy Birthday Kimberly

Well it's a busy day today of out to do a friends hair a wonderful lady in her 90's. Hope to pop into town to pay off some more of our family holiday for next year may sneak into craft shop.
I've been promising Betty i would go round and pick up a few pots of lilly's as the yellow centre's stained her hair lol!
Talking of betty this is someone who's hair i do in the salon on thursday she is great in her 80's and a good laugh,this card is for her great grandaughter Kimberly bless her 2years old will take it to Betty this afternoon or atleast try lol x
Imade this card using 5x7 pink pearlised card, backing card is from my stash, pink diamond paper was from local craft shop in the 10p box and the top papers is from bloom and grow (my minds eye)emboosed sheets.
The topper is made from a clear stamp collection i think it is huney & hugs range (papermania) but im not sure it is coloured using pro-markers and i have decorated using gem's.
Sentament is done using stickers had a nightmare trying to get them straight but i think they will pass. Well thats enough dribble for one day im off to jump in the bath before i start my busy day, take care love sarah xoxo

hi eveyone! Thanks for stopping by to take a gander. I made this card the other day using a template it was bought for a golden wedding anniversary but it's not till october so using it to practice however there is a diamond anniversary coming up so this is a final.

It's card is from A4 card stock pearlised (white) creased & folded in the middle the top is made using fun foam cut out to the template then covered in silver crepe paper the stem is made with two template one is larger than the other and used lilac for bottom silver mirror for top added some grey and puple/silver ribbon then topped of with some beautiful rose buds cream & purple.

The Label template was also in with the set so i've done this in lilac and used sticker embelishments to decorate. Sticker colours are great they are pearlised with flex of silver very sparkley so so me hope the happy couple like it.... Right im off to do some lunch before the boys come home from school, My eldest had a award in assembly today for star worker we didnt remember to go so feeling very guilty need to spoil him when he gets home.....catch up with you all tommorow love sarah xoxo OOPS LABEL ON TEMPLATE IS DIFFERENT SHAPE SORRY !
