What a day!!!!

Hi Everyone. Well, the most anticipated Royal Wedding for decades has come and gone.. Was it worth waiting for? You bet your socks it was!!! If ever there seemed a perfect Wedding, then that was it I think!! Even the notorious British Weather was on side!! Which is saying something for April!!And did they? Yes they did!! Twice!!
The future of the British Monarchy looks is very safe hands..
Today I wanted to share with you my last 40th Birthday Sample... Having made this one and having no more time to make anymore before the party I have made my decision on which one to give...Again, this one is very simple in it's make up but think the colour combination really makes it stand out!I punched a couple of border strips using the Martha Stewart Garden Gate Trim Deep Edger Punch in Some Red and White Polka Dot card stockadding them to a prepared Easel card. I also added some Red Gem Stones to the centre's of each flower shape.Using an image form one of the new Kanban Sassy Soho Ladies, I matted it onto some Red Mirror cardand applied it to the side panel of my Easel card.I then cut out my sentiment in the same Red and White card stock used for the base card. I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cardtridge, using the shadow function to give each element some depth.The sentiment was applied to the front of the card,but can also be seen when the side opening easel is put together...So, which one have I chosen to give this afternoon?This one....
So, once I've finished teaching today I'm off to party!!!
Have another great bank holiday weekend everyone and thanks for checking us out.
See you soon..

  2. Totally agree the wedding was fabulous.
    Love both of these cards, my favourite is the first one, I love the way it is folded and edge punch is a gorgeous effect.

  3. Nice one, very nice @ndy. Fresh, sharp, a card any gal will love. Well done.

    However, the retro style is still my fave with it's slightly fluffy and frivolous appearance. OMG what does that say about me!!!!

    Well done with all the cards, can we assume your inspo is back .... is it the thought of the holiday awaiting you!!!
