2 cards made this evening for orders

I had a couple of cards to make for 2 orders so here is what I have been doing this evening. The top one is from a die cut decoupage sheet - the chalking is showing up a lot more red in the scan than it actually is and the backing paper is from Daisy & Dandelion.
The 2nd card I have made for a mans niece and is again from the Daisy & Dandelion range and I am also entering this one in the Papertake weekly challenge as I followed DawnW's final sketch

Craft Class makes this evening

This evening I went to craft club with my good friend Dawn and as usual, we had a really good laugh and a giggle - ohh and did the odd bit of crafting too. Here are the 2 cards I made using the materials provided by Denise.

A flower from my bunch - just cos I like it lol

Last Thursday, I bought myself a bunch of flowers from the market and whilst I was looking out of the window earlier, I decided to take a picture of one of the blooms, just cos it looked pretty. Then I got carried away ....

Some quick cards I have made for a stall at a dog show

Unusual acceptance card - but not when you see the invite lol

Here is my acceptance card that I have made for a gentleman to send back to his family in reference to the invite below (I have blanked out the details naturally).
The backing paper and the pirate topper were freebies in this months Papercraft essential and the "Map" with the wording on is from Greeting Card Factory and then I tore the edges and inked them with a brown inkpad before crushing it to create the wrinkled effect.

Hubble gets caught by Atlantis

As some of you probably know, Atlantis took off from Kennedy Space Station recently to go catch itself a Hubble telescope - well today it caught it and here are a couple of screen shots via the live feed on Nasa TV of the telescope above the earth. It is all so surreal and so beautiful to watch.
Just thought I'd like to share them with you xxx

Couple of new cards

Here are my latest cards that I have made for orders recently (I have a feeling I have already listed the Car one at the top so forgive me if I have lol).

3 birthday cards all for orders

I had 3 orders for cards and this is what I have done. The top one is from the La Pashe Flipping Men range and I used a backing paper from Greeting Card Factory to simulate a tiled wall in a bathroom. The 2nd card is a die-cut decoupage sheet and the backing paper is from Jaks own range which is available from The Crafters Kitchen and the link is on the side bar. The 3rd is from the My Craft Studio Walk in Wonderland set and is for an 18yr old grand-daughter .

Black & Blue - thats the ATC theme and not me by the way :-)

Paul Ford over at ATC Swappers gave us a choice this month of either 4 "Black & Blue" themed ATC's, 4 "Cream & Purple" ATC's or do all 8 so long as there are 4 of each. So here are the ATC's I have done. There is no blog candy for guessing which colour option I have gone for lol. As I have until the end of May to send them in, I might get around to doing another 4 in the second colour choice but I'll have to see what occurs.
Hope you like them and thank you for looking xxx

Shower story update ..

Steve the maintenance man arrived today whilst I was out and when I got home about 5pm, the poor guy looked worn out LOL. He said it had been a bugger of a job so far but he seemed to be making good progress. Today he has totally replaced the waste pipes, fitted new joists, re-laid the floor, removed all the tiles and put up new boards ready for the new tiles, and installed the shower tray and sealed it. The tiler is coming in tomorrow to do the tiling then it just remains for Steve to come back and install the shower back again and fit the new door. I don't expect him to be here until Tuesday because of the bank holiday which is fine by me - at least the finish line is in sight :-)
