A Wedding Card...

I always find wedding cards a bit of a struggle, but I'm quite pleased with how this turned out.

I cut the hearts using 2 X-Cut nesting dies, then cut into one to link them together. I used a swiss dots embossing folder and also 2 Nellie Snellen Dies for the border and silver square.

I created the sentiment on the computer then cut it out in a banner style. The just added a few pearls and ribbon to finish off.

Christmas?? in July??!!! Well Why Not? :o)

After seeing all the Christmas in July challenges out there I couldn't resist joining in :o)

I made this using a cute digi stamp from Sliekje Stamps, isn't he cute! I love dogs! I coloured the image using promarkers and added Glamour Dust to his hat and the snow. The snowflakes were die cut from acetate which I then covered with Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust, they are super sparkly you just can't tell so well in the photo's! The white panel has been embossed with a snowflakes embossing folder and I added a couple of pearls and some ribbon to finish off.

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?? WOYWW??

Hello again! It's Wednesday.... Again!!! And this week you find me carrying on with the box I was just starting last week (although only the lid is on my desk at the moment) the body of the box is at the same stage, I'm just on with the corners now, it seems to be taking me ages to do, but it's getting there now, although I have a sore wrist from all the inking on those edges! Once the corners are finished off I think it will look quite good, I've not decided if I'll do anything else to it yet, it will probably depend how much longer it takes :o)

I went to the Summer Crafting Show at Doncaster on Sunday afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't busy at all, so I had a good look round, I didn't buy much, just a few bits and bobs that are in that bag over to the left. That's all for this week, I'll be popping over to Julia's now to take a peek at some more desks. Thanks for stopping by x

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? WOYWW??

Hello all, this week my desk is looking pretty boring, I'm planning on covering the box with the canvass type fabric which I am in the middle of cutting into sections, I then plan to ink up some card to make edging for the corners etc so it looks like an old case. That's the plan anyway, we'll see how it turns out!

You can also spy a new Memory Box die over to the left hand side, naughty me! I've liked it for ages so decided to treat myself :o)

That's it for this week, I'll be heading over to Julia's now to take a peek at some more desks. Thanks for stopping by. x

Oh almost forgot, is anyone going to the Summer Crafting Show in Doncaster this weekend? I can't decide whether to go or not yet, I went last year on the Saturday morning and it was just sooooo busy I couldn't really get to see that much! There were lots of lovely stalls though!
