Morning all, just thought I would post up a couple of cards I've been working on. A friend of mine has asked me to design 6 wedding cards for a project she is working on. She wanted simple and elegant designs. Here are a couple of the designs I've done for her. Apologies for the photo quality, but I still haven't learnt how to use my digital SLR camera properly! and because the cards are all white, and the window ledge had the sun beaming through I didn't quite know what settings to put it on to get the best shot, but anyway hopefully you can see them OK. I'm also ashamed to say that I've also got Photoshop Elements - a recent purchase but again haven't had time yet to learn how to use that either!!!!!!!! I'm too busy blogging these days - its so addictive eh! So any comments on better photography skills would be appreciated!!!

I've seen a few people make some lovely "scrunched up" flowers - so thought I would have a go. I used my cuttlebug and cut various sizes of scalloped circles using the Papermaina Rose Garden 6x6 paper pack. A bonus with this paper pack which I didn't realise comes with tags, borders and icons. I finished off the cards with some bare basics raffia too.

Now on a completely different shopping trip a couple of weeks ago I picked up this lovely pen pot in paperchase - I just really love the look of the white metal.....
Well actually the one above is not a card, but me just practicing with a new embossing folder of a tree which I just love. I added a couple of little "puffy" sticker owls that I bought from Paperchase. I think it looks sweet so will probably add it as a topper to a card...
Happy Easter! Here are a couple I've made for my neighbours using the lovely Pink Petticoat downloads. To colour them in I've used a combination of Promarkers and glitter chalks, AND I got out of the cupboard my glitter flock! Have not used it much - don't know why? as it gives a lovely texture.
This is a new home card I've made for a friend who is moving this weekend (hope it doesn't rain too much for her...) The card blank is actually an elegant card wrap from Craftwork Cards and the Oval and heart are also from Craftwork Cards - again I've coloured it in with Promarkers. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.
