Camping birthday - Saturated Canary

Look at me three posts in one day - I promise this is my last!

As I mentioned on my last post - today is my friend Debbie's birthday today (as well as her wedding anniversary). Debbie happened to mention when we were on a shopping trip a few weeks ago that they are going camping in the school holidays and I then found this perfect image from Saturated Canary:-

I wonder if Deb will get to toast some marshmallows lol!

Hope she likes the card - I'm sure she will!

Ok I'm off to enjoy the BBQ now and its is also the start of our two week summer holiday - and relax!!

See you soon

Hi! Me again

If I do say so myself I am really liking this card - less is more and all that! What do you think. The image is from one of the LOTV art pads:-

Cute isn't it!

I hope Deb & Scott like it too!

40th Wedding Anniversary - LOTV

Hi everyone

Hope you are all well - here is my 1st post for today......

Today is my friends' 40th Wedding Anniversary (Ruby) and they had a party to celebrate this last night and today we have a BBQ at their house - hope the weather holds out!!

Anyway back to the card and I've used an image from on of the LOTV pads and I've coloured it with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Spectrum Noir pens. My buddy Karen came to my rescue with the papers as whatever ones I was trying to use I couldn't get them to match!!

What do you think - I think it fits the bill! I hope Ann & Phil like it.

Right off to enjoy the BBQ - watch this space for another post a bit later, it's all go today!

Bye for now

Wedding RSVP

Hi All

Melted yet - we have! what a storm last night - feel knackered now after only 3 hours sleep and more to come tonight, oh what joy!

Anyway back to the crafting - now we don't have any wedding invites for years and the we have two for the same day! We can only go to one so this the RSVP decline card I have made for my work colleague - I'm sure they understand that we are unable to go:-

I've used the wedding dress stamp from Stampin' Up. I will of course make Laura a wedding day card nearer the time.

Hope you like it as well.

Right  - off to have a small glass of something in case the storms come back!

See you soon

Happy Birthday - Saturated Canary Sara

Hi all

Hope you are all well - melted yet in this heatwave??!! Today is meant to be the hottest day of the year and is going to end with a bang. If it does I just hope it doesn't decide to do it when I'm on the way to the pool on Saturday morning!

Anyway back to the crafting and today is one of my best friends birthday and so of course I had to make her a lovely card. Not made one using an SC image for a while and I found this new one Sara so I thought I'd give it a try. Here is the card - what do you think??

I used the colour scheme to fit in with my favourite paperpad - Forever Friends Kraft Notes.

I'm hoping Ann likes it too - and watch this space in the next week for Ann's 40th (ruby) wedding anniversary card, her daughter Debbie's birthday card and also Debbie and her Husband Scott's Anniversary card - and they are all on the same day!

Catch up soon - keep cool!!
