How lovely.....

....all is quiet with my darling children back at school and not here arguing and Im sitting in the garden catching some rays!!! Did start out crafting but it just got too hot and sticky so now Ive come back on the laptop and designed some backing papers for a couple of cards needed and googled for some anniversary ideas (which has been quite successful!!) Had an enjoyable day on Saturday at another new crop!! Managed to get a few cards done and time just flew by. Here are some pics of what I managed.

This is a card my friend ordered. Ive made a gatefold card and used a pyramage image from CUP. This was mounted onto card I embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and then of course finished with card candy!!

This next card was requested for a 40th birthday and needed to be to do with fishing. I found some Kanban pics I had in a male set and mounted these on top of card embossed with Swiss Dots again. Finished off with the greeting and candy. I felt the blue was just right to match the background in the pics.

This next card was also a request and has the name, weight and date of birth of baby. This design is also from CUP and after mounting I finished off with white organza ribbon and a couple of pink buttons.

Last but not least is another fairy card but this time in orange. I love this fairy and also this type of card. Im not sure what its called but where the fairy is mounted it is a small card mounted on the back of a large card. The right hand side of the card opens out also.

I must go now as want to look through some blogs before the school run and the sun is moving and Im not so need to slightly rearrange!!
Happy crafting xx
