Catching Up...

Hello all,

Hope life is treating you well and your week has gone off to a good start. I can't believe where time has flown to, but I've set aside tonight to do a bit of catch up blogging because it's been too long!

First of all, thank you to Aimes, Alison, Carole, Nicci, Nicki and Sarah H for sending me a Blog Award. It's really appreciated and so sorry it's taken till now to mention it.

So, what have I been up to lately? Lots of cards I guess, both for personal and a few commissions. So without further ado, here are some creations I've recently been working on below:

Wedding Cards

A card using both Stampin' Up! products - "Happy Hearts" stamp set and my trusty Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.

A card inspired and cased by Clair & Sharni using Stampin' Up! "Mr & Mrs" stamp set and Taffeta ribbon in Pretty in Pink and Kraft.

Big Birthday Celebrations

Happy 40th Birthday
using "Seeing Spots" stamp set.

Happy 80th Birthday using Patterns Designer Series Paper and Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Rose Red.

Okay, I think I'll stop posting for now, then I'll have some more cards left to upload for the remaining of the week :)

Bye for now,
