It must nearly be Christmas!!! I'm updating my blog!!

Well its been so long since I posted I'd almost forgotten how to do it! I am still around! and making the occasional cards but to be honest card making has taken a bit of a back seat over the past year. I still enjoy making and creating but card making has always been more a hobby for me. Please leave me a comment at the end of this post, so I can see if anybody (other than you, Mum!) is still checking for updates!! LOL

I have recently been to my very first Stampin Up party! Through a friend, I found a demonstrator in my local area! Hooray and am even now considering hosting a party of my own. I am hoping that this gives me a kick start back into making cards! I am ashamed to say I have been and bought cards from the shops over the past few months too. So lazy.

I do have a few cards to share though, this being the most recent. I was asked to make a 1st Anniversary card, with the following requirements: to use;

Sheet Music "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds
A Photo of the happy couple on their wedding day
The Colour Purple as this was the theme of the Wedding
x2 Poems
and A Picture of Pooh Sticks Bridge

I printed the sheet music onto clear acetate and fixed it over the top of some thick iridescent vellum using purple brads. I printed the photo onto Bazzil criss cross white card ( it gives a canvas effect) which I then mounted and layered using more vellum and purple card. I've tied a nice satin bow around the bottom of the photo and added a purple adhesive stone to finish. The photo and pictures are all fixed with foam pads so they stand out. The x2 poems are adhered to the back of the card together with a personalised message.
I'm not going to push it so will leave it at just the one card for today! I'll be back soon with some more updates! I Promise!
