I was asked by a friend to make a wedding card for her and I had been looking at lots of cards on the web using the heart punch from SU to make a bride and groom and I wanted to have a go myself.I made the *couple* and the heart nesties and a base card but I just couldnt pull the card together because of the colours she wanted....so jenny to the rescue...she suggested making it into an easel card and putting some white dsp along the bottom edge to pull the colours together and voila this card was born ( thanks Jenny ) I think it looks brilliant and the tiny tag with Mr and Mrs on it just sets it all off perfectly....what do you think ?????

I have seen lots of cards on the web using the *wing* from the bird and branch SU punch it also uses the branch from that punch too and I thought I would give it a go as I need 2 birthday cards. I also thought I would use some of the new colours Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo along with Old Olive and whisper white.The DSP is from the sweet pea stack.
This is what we can now see from the bottom of the garden and it will look better when its painted....I also have to paint the extra bit of stonework to the left....I knocked it down by accident !! honestly it was an accident.......
Having done lots of work on and in our garden we didnt really want to be looking at these wheelies and you could see them from the bottom of the garden so we set about finding a new house for them and this is what we did.

This is the BBQ that Tony built, it was a little project that he has wanted to do for a few years and finally this year it got finished.....YEAH....now we just need some nice weather to be able to enjoy it.......!! so when I saw this pic I knew I had to make a birthday card to depict this LOL..... !!
I used the cuttlebug happy birthday folder to do the inside left of the card, Iused the modern label punch in real red and then the saying its a BTUful thing ???? was punched with the word window punch. I cheated and printed a page onto CS from the SU USA mini catalogue as we dont have that image in the UK and this was the word that came with it I think it is supposed to be like a BLT in uk ???? anyone know ????
This card uses choc chip, pretty in pink and old olive.I love the top note die. The leaves are a sizzlit die and the flower is from the sweet pea felt collection from SU......I did make another card but I gave that to Jenny to say thanks for the appreciation day but forgot to take a pic of it...hopefully jenny will take a pic and send to me then I can put it up here. Bye for now
I went to Jennys appreciation day last week and was lucky enough to win the bird punch in a game of bingo which was a HOOT.....you are supposed to choose 5 numbers and I only wrote down 4 and still managed to win 2 gifts !!!! I used sweet pea dsp again along with taken with teal so saffron and old olive card.I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background and a 3" scallop circle punch...I punched the wing out of the dsp and popped up on dimensionals.....more coming soon x
