This was a view of the room from where I was sat. All the tables had balloons tied to blue buckets with sand in them and the had fan flowers and the table number on them all co-ordinating.

There was also a handmade box on the table of sweeties and that was matching dsp too and on the front was the punched bird on a branch.

Wedding card

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 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 ?????

Melon Mambo BD card

I only used 3 tulips on this one and I think it looks less crowded...I used twine to tie the stems this time and put the sentiment in the middle....

Rich Razzleberry BD card

This is the rich razzleberry one I did 4 tulips for this one and used silver SU elastic cord to tie the stems.I just love the polka dot ribbon that matches the cardstock.

Happy Birthday tulips from punches

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.

A new house for the wheelie bins LOL !!!

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.

Leo and sunshine

Gotta love this dog....he loves the sunshine and first thing in the morning this is where the sun shines so this is where you will find Leo during the day he moves around the house to wherethe sun is

King of the Grill

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 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..... !!

Tony birthday card front

As soon as I saw this image in the USA SU mini I knew I wanted to make a card with it for Tony. I will share a pic shortly that made me think of this image as the words say * King of the Grill * and the pic of Tony behind his BBQ that he built encapsulates those words perfectly hee hee :)

Inside left Tony BD card

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 ????

Tony's Birthday card

This is the inside right of Tonys card, I saw this on a blog somewhere and just loved it and knew I wanted to make one for inside his card, especially seeing as he has just finished building himself a BBQ !!!

Sweet pea thank-you card

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
