Recently I had to make a Wedding Acceptance card and a With Sympathy card. For the first card I used my my new Papertrey Ink dies and stamps. I think there are 6 Papertrey Ink items on this one card! (Scallop Die, Small Scallop Circle Die, Butterfly Die, Edge Die, Banner Die and sentiment stamp)
This second card is one for a really good old family friend who recently died, he was such a fab man and always been a very good friend to our family. Last year he send me a gift of money out of the blue, and this enabled me to buy my new 24 - 70mm f/2.8L Canon lens - so everytime I pick up my camera I think of him!
The funny thing about this card is that the twill ribbon came from the wrapping on a throw I bought for the couch! The beads came from ends of Christmas Crackers a few years ago and I have been using them every since.
This last item was a gift to my aunt who visited recently. She has 3 stunning grandchildren who she is so proud of so this was a fun little gift for her. I made some frames to go around the sentiments (old Rusty Pickle paper) and embellished with the TH die flowers. The whole item got a coat of paint to bring it together.
So thats it for today - I have 2 LO's waiting to be photographed, 2 cards on my desk for finishing!
Finally I wanted to share a photo that I took at a new baby shoot that I did last week. Meet baby S! He was 8 days old when I met him and he really made my hormones (whats left of them!) jump around a little...
