I'm Back! :D

Hi everyone!

Long time no bloggy for me! I've been tied up making 100 wedding invitations and 50 evening invitations - they were super detailed so between waiting for supplies (glue taking three weeks to get here, suppliers running out of black card nationwide) and actually making the things, I've literally made about four other cards so far this year, so I'm so happy that they're finally done and dusted and handed over to the happy couple :D SO GLAD I never have to look at them again haha! I've literally been working on them non stop since half-way through January, I handed them over last Thursday, took a few days of relaxation and got back to my desk yesterday and made a card :) When the invites have finally been sent out by the bride and groom I'll share them here then :)

Hope you like it, I haven't coloured anything proper in for sooo long, colouring is a bit rusty haha!

First Birthday :)

Evening everyone :)

I got my paper woes sorted, I went to a little art shop in town and they didn't have any a4 black card, but they did have a2 size in the same brand, so I got that :) I still haven't got my glue though, and if the company I ordered from doesn't help me soon, I'm done with them haha! Two and a half weeks is far too long to wait for an order that is capable of getting here in four days. I bought an emergency tube in town to keep me going until I need enough stuff to get past the £40 free shipping limit at the wonderful Glitter Pot store haha, which never really takes long ;)

Anyway enough complaining for one day!
This is another card that I made a little while ago and never got around to blogging :)

3rd birthday card :)

Hi everyone!

Long time no post, I've been busy trying to get 100 wedding invitations done. Come up against a brick wall though, I've run out of glue :( I ordered some two weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived SO ANNOYING, I contacted the store and they said they can't do anything yet. So in the space of time I've been waiting for it, I totally ran out of glue so not only can I not work on the invites, I can't do any other crafting either. 

Also. I'm running out of black card, and my local store aren't getting any in stock til april AAAHHH, where do you all buy just plain black card?! Help me please!

Anyway, I made this card last month, haven't had time to blog it til now. I made a stepper card, I always think they look great so I had a go at it myself. Needs a bit of work I think, but I'm happy enough with it for a first attempt I guess!

Ingredients
Image - Tiddly Inks Summer Sweet Wryn
Papers - LOTV Perfect Pair
WOC and Kurt and Godt flowers, pink organza trim and pearl from Ribbon Girl
Pink ribbon from stash
Sentiment printed on the computer
Coloured with PMs and Copics

One more valentine's card

Hi everyone, another card from me! I'm up to my ears at the moment in the middle of making 100 wedding invitations for someone, and let's just say they're not clean and simple, lots of cutting, embossing, frantaging etc to do, so it's literally taking all of my time at the moment! I love it though, it means that at least 200 people will be looking at a card that I made then, and as that's the case, I want it to be good :D

I had to take a break though for this week, as I had three valentine's orders, two birthday card orders for little girls and then it's my niece's first birthday this week too, so I've had loads of orders for that too so the invites had to take a back seat - just as well they're not needed til May :)

So here's the last valentine's card - it was actually ordered by one of the bridesmaids from the wedding I'm making the invitations for so yay for word of mouth right?
She sent me a picture of the scene she wanted on it and described it down to what they were wearing, so that was a touch challenging to say the least :P Very proud of my ability to find a perfectly dressed couple and then add in the hat afterwards haha!

Ingredients
Image - Some Odd Girl Squeezy Hugs, Make it Crafty Island Hideaway, a hat found on the internet and some serious skills in Microsoft Paint :P 
LOTV Country Gent papers
Sentiment printed on the computer
Ribbon and faux hessian from Ribbon Girl
Stickles (the water is really sparkly, it doesn't show well in the photos), Gold Stickles, Liquid Pearls
Coloured with PMs and Copics
