I followed the very talented Eileens tutorial for this beautiful Diamond Wedding card and I am really pleased at how it turned out and how easy and simple it was to make. If you haven't already done so, hop along to Eileens blog and have a look at her lovely creations. While your there take a peek at Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard, she has some really good ideas and tips using the bug.
Ooh, I have been a bad blogger, just realised how long since my last post!! I have been a busy bee though, had loads of card requests and i have managed to almost finish most of them.
I am trying to make a start on my Christmas cards, I can see it will be a last minute rush - again!!
This is a sweet little card I made for a friend of mine whose son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first baby next Spring. I managed to find a lovely verse to add to the inside of the card:
First in your world, First in your eyes, First in your thoughts, First in your lives, First in your hearts As a brand new life starts Your very first baby Your joy

As soon as I saw this scrummy Magnolia parrot image I knew I had to use it to make my daughter Caron's birthday card from her sister Donna. He is coloured with Prismas and Sansador and I tried to match the colours of Caron's parrot Tommy. A different card from the usual and she was thrilled with it. Many thanks to Andrea for the loan of the stamp.
