Christening Cards

It's my Niece's Christening on Sunday, along with her half brother Joshua. Made these two cards, Forever Friends for Lilly and Me to You Tatty Teddy for Joshua. Lilly's card was plan b as unfortunately the topper I ordered from Ebay (Forever Friends Christening Bear) didn't arrive in time. Still think its quite a nice one though. Made with Forever Friends and Dovecraft papers, bazzil card, ribbons, bows, flowers, and gems.

Have now entered Lillys card for the 'Buttons' challenge on Sarah Hurley's challenge blog - here's the link

Bee Happy New Home card

One time for a quicky tonight - still waiting for a topper to be delivered from Ebay to do the christening cards :0(

Made this quick one with a watercoloured image from the internet, matt & layering and a bee and flower stamp that I've had for ages, ribbon, peel offs and a few gems.

Fingers crossed the post comes tomorrow I need to send the cards on Friday at the latest!

Commissioned Money Wallets

After a relaxing long weekend off work its now back to the crafting. Made these two money wallets for my Mum to send to 2 of my cousins in Canada. One had to feature a Snowboarder and one Skier. LOTV Skier stamp used (thanks for the loan Karen!) and a snowboarder digistamp. Both coloured with watercolour pencils - new pens are on order! Also used a printed snowflake paper from a free Crafters Companion CD, mirror card and bazill card

, few ribbons, peel offs, brads and some gems.

Now whats next...... this week I've got to make 2 Christening cards, 2 new home cards and to start on my Forever Friends Design Team card, oh and then Christmas cards, busy busy busy!!

Parachute Jump

Well the commissioned cards are all bagged and tagged and ready for me to take to work tomorrow. Now got the images ready to make the money wallets for my Mum over the weekend (long weekend off of work - yipee!!) - as I'm taking a break from crafting, well for a few hours anyway!!, I thought I'd add this photo.

What an expience! I did the jump on 16 September last year and raised money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People - as this is one of the charities we sponsor through work. Between myself and a work colleague, Emily, we raised around £1000! One of the best things I've done so far.

Back to crafting tomorrow :0)

Commissioned Christmas Cards

Managed to make two more tonight, as Brent was home a bit late. Just one more to go for this order, which fingers crossed I should be able to do tomorrow. These 2 again had to featue Christmas Trees. One has been made using the Docrafts embossing folder and the other stamped in silver and embossed. Just need to put the messages inside as requested and then I can produce my invoice. Couldn't do any over the weekend as due to fireworks we had cuddly bugs on our laps, glad its only once a year!

Commissioned Christmas Card 7

Managed to squeeze another one in this evening - was almost two, but ran out of time! This one had to feature a Christmas Tree so I've used this snowflake tree stamp that I've also embossed. Fingers crossed I might be able to get the last 3 done over the weekend (and then I can start on my Mum's request!)

All comments welcome :0)

More Christmas Commissions.....

Just had a call from my Mum asking me to make a couple of money wallets for her to send to 2 of my Canadian cousins - featuring a snowboarder and a skier. They are aged 13 and 12. Off to search the interweb for some digistamps! Think my long weekend off work next weekend is being spent crafting(sorry Brent!) !!

It's November...................

....And hasn't that come round ever so quickly! Now I really must concentrate on making Christmas Cards - still 5 to go for the ones I've been asked to make. Did colour the digistamp of a Christmas Fireplace tonight whilst catching up on previous episodes of Merlin on V+, so I've made a start! Must now crack on bigtime - think I might have to start taking some to work every day! Also been trying to update my blog tonight....
