Just for Val and Imelda.....

Sorry for absence, there was a little grumble in the background that I had not blogged and it's not because I have nothing to show, its due to being busy.

Here is are two cards that were made and delivered last week....  One is a wedding card and I was at a bit of a loss on what to make and then I took a little trip onto Pintrest and found something, and this card was born.  Simple card that looked fab in real life.

My husbands niece was 21 last weekend and this was the tri-fold card that I made her, all made from Crate Paper Pretty Party collection.

Lovely card and Eamonns niece was thrilled.  She asked me to make her a cake, and this was a copy of one that I made for my own daughters birthday, 7 colours and 2kilos of icing sugar later......

Great to be able to use my paper stash to make the bunting for the cake.... Probably my favorite cake ever!!!  Made quite a statement!!!

Random stuff....

Like most weekends here, it's busy!  Over the last week I have been running around (as per usual) but I would not have it any other way really!

Here are a few cards that I made recently.  I wrote a list and needed nearly 10 cards for a variety of things, so I gave myself a full night and made a bunch of them.

OK variations on a theme but I had some new Papertrey Ink dies and stamps to play with and well you really just have to!  

The one above is my fav of the ones I have made recently.  I used up all my bright red card and that perfectly teal card and cannot make anymore but I will be looking to buy more of these colours as they are just magic!  The inspiration came from a top that my little one Lea was wearing, and these colours just worked so well on the top that I had to combine them on a card.

Boy cards always a hard thing to make, so this was my card for my nephew Conor for his Confirmation, I hope it was not too girlie for him, but I did my best!
