Blog Candy

Check out Anne's blog candy and lovely cards. If you're not lucky this time why not treat yourself to a set of stamps as it's for such a good cause. Details on Anne's blog.

Mike and Marie's wedding

Here is a photo of my lovely son and gorgeous daughter-in-law just after they tied the knot on 9/9/09. Sorry the photo is a bit grainy. I'm looking forward to getting the professional photos to scrapbook. 800+ photos will keep me going for life ;-)

After taking the photo I looked to my left to see two little ones having fun. It's one of my favorite photos of the day. The children loved taking photos. It was great to see lots of relatives who live far away and everyone had a lovely lovely day.

Scalloped Ovals

Haven't made any cards for ages, but feel I should get cracking with Christmas cards. One a week between now and Christmas will not be enough! This card is for my son, who like most men loves monkeys. It has a little bit of flower soft on the hat and is coloured with copics.

The scallop on the monkey card is made using a silhouette die cutting machine, whilst the oval below was cut with my new nestabilities. Both cards are approx 6" by 4". I prefer the nestabilities scallops but I am surprised how small they are. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how to use the tiny dies.

This card is a random selection of things, that tie together quite well with the colours. The background is glitter card.
