Our Wedding Invitations

I thought I'd show our wedding invites from last year. There was lots of work on them, rubber stamping and embossing, punched flowers and beaded elements as well. We had a fantastic day with great weather, fabulous friends and family.

Well it's been a while since i've posted anything on here. No particular reason, i've just not felt like it! and i don't know that i will post much now either cos most of my time is taken up with Bonny in the summer.
pic is a little cupcake I made for my sisters birthday back in January

Back from hols

Been back from Turkey a couple of days now and i find myself struggling with quite a few things... the weather for one!
We didn't have a good holiday, far too stressful and i've got a sore throat and cold sores!!!! never had one before, ever!
My car has gone back, so i'm stuck at home... gggrrrr! daren't ask when i might get another one as we are spending far too much at the moment on the wedding.... have i mentioned before that we are getting married in september? and that leads to my next problem......
i've totally lost my mojo again and i've got to finish the invites yet! mojo is probably hiding in my craft room which i haven't been into since we got back!
right, got to stop feeling sorry for myself and get into gear and get things organised. hopefully the girls at craft club will help lift me back up tonight.

The girls have been on at me to get the pics of Bonny scrapbooked, well now i don't have to, Marions done it for me. Hope you like as much as I do, I'll treasure it forever. Thanks sis.

Decided i will send this card to Dad for his birthday instead, no flowers so not so feminine, That shield was a bugger to cut out, don't think i will be doing that again in a hurry.
Will somebody please take my credit card off me...... I can't stop spending at the moment!
I will be back to tell you where i got the sketch from cos yet again I've forgotten! Found it. It was from truly scrumptious designed by Michele. I did alter it slightly but only a little.

Lovely weather

Hope everyone is enjoying this lovely weather we are having. I've been making the most of it, gardening or playing with the horses or both, and just too tired to craft at night!
I finally got round to using some of my new WOJ stamps, this is for my Dads birthday which is coming up in May. What do you think, is it too feminine?

stamps - all WOJ
coloured with distress inks and tombow pens
patterned paper - DCWV Old World stack
flowers - Prima
tea roses - Crafters Dream

Started this card last Thursday at craft club, but i've only just got round to taking a picture because the flowers kept falling off. I've dumped my roll of Zots glue dots cos they just don't keep things stuck down!!! I much prefer silicon for sticking flowers anyway. I not totally happy with the swirl stamps on this i think they should have been inked in brown instead of black!
I did manage to get in the garden over the last two days... not that you can tell! I also found about 6 rabbit holes! flippin rabbits.... got to get them under control some how.
stamp - WOJ
paper - Basic Grey, Two Scoops
swirl stamp - can't remember!!!
coloured with distress inks
flowers from stash
