What a Laugh !

Good morning hope your all well. The sun is shining here in Leeds, looks like its going to be a gorgeous day.
I went to Julies SU workshop on Saturday and here is one of the cards we made in the male cards class. Julie spoils us with yummy home made muffins and this week she made a huge coffee and walnut cake. It was a great day and I had a great time with Vicky.
Boy did we laugh, we made 3 cards. I made a shirt shaped card which ended up looking extremely creased and had a lop sided tie ! ! This card was made using SU Rainbow Sherbert papers and the Cheers to You stamp set. The circles and scallops are also cut from SU punches. The card stock is Tempting Turquiose and Green galore.
I may have a lack of posts over the next few weeks as i have my final dissertation to do for my degree, so not much time for crafting. I will however try to visit your blogs as often as i can.
Have a great day

Celebrate with Edwin

Good evening hope you have all had a good weekend. The sun has been shining all weekend here in Leeds and its been quite hot.
I made this card for my Father in Law who celebrates his birthday tomorrow. The image is an Edwin Magnolia stamp. He is great for male birthdays. And i really like the grey/black colours for mens cards. I coloured him using copic markers. The papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft. The scallop circle and the circle are cut from Papershapers punches. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The scallop oval and oval are cut from SU punches. The oval sentiment is also from Craftwork Cards.
Thanks for dropping by

Gosh it seems ages since my last post. I made this card for a friend who is expecting her first baby and she found out yesterday that 'its a boy'. The image is by Magnolia and is coloured using copic markers. The papers are by SU. The card is also by SU and is called bashful blue. I mounted the image onto a scallop cut from a nestabilities and added some pearls. The sentiment is from SU and mounted onto a scallop, the ribbon also is SU. I added some Prima flowers with a spacer and a bashful blue brad and also little bootee charm attached to a chain.
