My fab new storage

My dad was challenged - not by me ;o) - to make me something to store my Stampin Up punches on or in. Well, after a bit of encouragement to stop planning it and get on with it, this is what he came up with. Isn't it great?

The problem is that I'm now thinking that I should have asked him to make it a bit bigger. I think I must have been in denial when he asked how many punches I had. He thinks that he'd made it so that it was half full --- oops!

Happy Father's Day

As per the title of this post - this is the card that I made for me dad. He's really good at DIY whereas I'm not! He's always there to help me out when I get in a fix so the sentiment was very apt.

The image is of "Marshmallow" from the Design Objectives range of stamps. These stamps are great as they have images that are suitable for men ---- who as we all know are really hard to make cards for! The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the papers are Pebbles.

I really enjoyed making this card as my friend (whose birthday it was) is another Penny Black addict. Unfortunately, it looks like it's got lost in the post :o(

The image and sentiment are both Penny Black. Patterned papers are Pebbles. I even used my favourite Stampin Up cardstock and ribbon --- Certainly Celery :o)

Thinking Of You

It's been a couple of weeks since I blogged. I have been making cards but everything else has been a bit hectic.

My mum asked me to make a sympathy card for her neighbour. Didn't really know what to do until I remembered that I'd recently got the SU Happy Harmony stamp set. It's a simple design that doesn't need anything else.

Anyway, this is what I came up with.

Wedding season

Here's 3 wedding cards that I've made recently.

This one was for a very good friend of mine who got married at the beginning of May. I love this Forever Friends stamp and it has come in very handy --- as you'll see below ;o)

The next 2 were for my cousin's son who got married on Saturday.

This one was from my mum and dad. The stamp is one from Stampin' Up Fun and Fast Notes.

This one was from me - spot the FF bears again LOL I found out that the wedding colours were burgundy and cream so I tried to make the card match. The ribbon is SU Basic Gray taffeta - thanks to the forum girls (especially Maggie) for helping me see that I really really needed it :)
