Hello everyone, sorry I've been AWOL but I have a very good excuse :D My eldest son Craig got married to his long-term girlfriend Zoe (they have 3 adorable children so it's about time they made it official lol ;) ). We had a long weekend down in Kent (where they live & the wedding was) which was wonderful & the wedding day was just perfect in every way. I will post photos soon for anyone who is interested. (I made some jewellery to go with my outfit & if you want a lil peek it is HERE :)
|Sorry this photo is rubbish (I don't have the card to redo)|
Those of you who follow my blog or visit me (thank you, I do appreciate it!) will know that I am part of the Jellypark design team & Claire our wonderful illustrator has generously made a CD full of her gorgeous images to be given free with this month's Complete Cardmaking magazine & the DT were asked to make some cards with the images on the disc - how cool is that! I haven't actually seen the magazine yet (I ordered it yesterday & can't wait for it to arrive) & my card is on the front cover :D While I'm talking about Jellypark Claire has started a Jellypark Club which will have lots of freebies & special offers for members. This fortnight's challenge at Jellypark Friends is "Olympic Fever" if you fancy entering (you can use any image).
I would like to enter my card for these challenges:
Totally Gojuss - Pearls
Creative Inspirations - In the Garden
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Once Stop Craft - Just Good Friends
Emergency Crafters - Circles
Crafty Catz - All That Glitters
The Crafty Pad - Things with Wings
Sassy Cheryl - Pretty Papers
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Oops I nearly forgot to tell you how I made the card ... or should I say buy the mag ;) The papers were from my stash & I did some machine stitching around the edges. The image was die cut & the edges inked & glittered (Glamour Dust). I finished off with a doily, various flowers, pearls, punched butterflies & a stamped sentiment.
