It's August already!!

Where has the time gone?!?!

Well, it's our 4 yr wedding anniversary on the weekend, and I didn't want to be making Hubbys card last miute, so I got on with it today. I used the "old fashioned papers for him" by Pink Petticoat, and the image is from the same download, too. Using these colours, I think it's quite masculine. I'm hoping Hubby will like it...

My friends birthday is on Thursday....she loves American type images like this (me too!).... another Debbie Mumm image! I made this over a week ago, but didn't post it on my blog incase she saw it. She should have this by now...and I bet she opened it early!!!! (glossy accents applied to the cat, the bee. the bird and the butterfly.)

My hubby has sat with me for aggggges today, showing me how to type my sentiments onto the actual card, instead of matting and layering them on. He downloaded some lovely fonts for me to use too...he is such a love! I printed the image straight from my pc onto the card, too. Its hard to see on the photo, but I have used glossy accents on all the little berries on the border, and the bows. I also added a few black gems in the corner.

This image is from another of Pams lovely stamps... Thanks Pam!! (PS.... she has just started her blog, so please go and have a visit and let her know you stopped by) I put it with that "gorjuss gingham" and added a craftworks sentiment and punched flowers. I shall do one in traditional boy-blue, too.

I made this for a cousin...she is having her daughter christened on the weekend, and we cant make it, so thought I would send her a handmade card. I used the swirls cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the eges. Sentiment is hand-written. Hope she likes it!! xx
