Retirement Cake!

Just had to share this pic I found on my phone. Some of you will remember I went to Mum's friends house for a crafty evening a week or so back! She had just retired from a career caring for the elderly.
Someone at work made her a cake but she can't bring herself to cut into it! I can't blame her, can you???

All those little cakes & teacups, how wonderful is that??? Well done to the lady who had the patience to make all these tiny little things!! Wish I could do something like that!!!

Birthday Card for a Dear Friend

Made this card last weekend & forgot I had taken pics of it! It was sealed on the mantlepiece ready for posting off then I found out I had the date wrong! Eeek!!! Hopefully she has it now & I do soo apologise for it being late!!!

 It's the same digi stamp as I used for my Birthday invites coloured with promarkers but cut out with my Nesties labels 1 as are the DP matts. I printed the greeting straight from the pc onto the card added some paper flowers & some gems and that was it!

I took a close up of the flowers but I see a big blob of Pinflair glue! Too late to do anything about it now!!!

November ATCs For CMD Swap


Took part in the November swap over at Cardmaking Downloads Forum. The theme this month was Hello Cupcake! At first I didn't think I could do it but eventually came up with some little easel ATCs  made using a download from the Cardmaking Download Website.

I have seen some swaps where the ATCs are all the same, decided I'd make them all the same but different!!!
The backing papers used for the base cards are all designed for using with this pyramage. They pyramage has been inked at the edges using different coloured promarkers.

The stoppers were punched at the bottom using 2 different types of punch! I did have a third pic but it's gone AWOL but I'm sure you have the general idea by now!!!
Whilst I'm here I'd like to welcome my latest follower Happy Days! Nice to see you & thanks for following!
That's it for now I'm afraid! I do have another card & perhaps something else to share with you tomorrow!
Until then.........

Birthday Invitation

I have a special birthday approaching fast & we had a slight change of plan so I had to get some invitations done quick sharpish!

I chose a freebie digi image (I can't remember where I picked her up) & printed several of them onto matt photo paper. Coloured with my Promarkers, matted onto different colours of mirror card & added a ribbon. The wording was printed straight onto the card for speed & I included all the info on the insert! I am quite pleased with the speedy results and they are all ready to pop into the post in the morning!
