Whole lot of Bella going on!

How are you all? I would love to hear what you have planned for the weekend? Tomorrow is haircut day for me and then we are off to a Ball in the evening - I am looking forward to getting all dressed up and seeing friends!

Here are some more of the cards I made last weekend - these have either arrived or are on their way to their new homes so I can share them with you.

Definitly a Bella thing going on!

To be truthful this last one wont be there yet but I know my Dad does not read my blog so the surprise wont be spoilt!

There are still three more cards I made last weekend to show you but you are going to have to wait to see them as their intended recipients have not got them yet.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

One of those months ...

Do you ever have one of those months when there are lots of birthdays and you need cards for lots of other things too?

Most of the cards I made last weekend have gone to their new homes and today I have made another 6! So for now I am going to show you the ones from last weekend.

Firstly a birthday card – similar design to the one I showed you last weekend – two of the papers are same but I love how different they look in this combination.
There are lots of people leaving from work at the moment – the first was for a friend who showed me where there is a craft shop near work – she loves to paint. Its not colours I would normally choose but I love these papers (more cards with them to come another time!).

I had a lot of fun colouring in this second one – love this stamp.

This weekend was also the wedding of the butterfly bride – well she is not a butterfly but you know what I mean! It was a lovely day, warm and, while we were by the church, dry. The Bride looked lovely, the 7 (yes I counted twice) bridesmaids were beautiful and the guys all looked great in their suits and co-ordinating waistcoats.

Here is the bride’s bouquet and the bridesmaid’s flowers

And to finish for this, rather long post, here is the card I made them for their wedding. Sorry the picures have not come out that welll - my camera has not coped well with the pearlescent paper :-/

We have had some lovely weather today – sunny but with a cooling breeze. I hope you have had a beautiful day too.

Love is in the air

Well we have not had any sunshine here, and there has certainly been a lot of rain in the air here!

I went to a hen night last night – here is the cards I made for the bride to be

I love the look of acetate cards but where to put the message is always a challenge, so for this card I made a pocket at the back and added a co-ordinating tag that I could write on.

A year ago today some good friends of ours got married and so I used the same stamp again to make an anniversary card for them. I have also been busy making some other cards – two for friends who are leaving work and a couple of birthdays. I can only share one of them – the others have yet to be delivered. Dont tell anyone but this is the first time I have actually used a button on a card!

So hoping your weekend has been full of love.
