Rose Card

Phew this took me ages as each rose bud had to be cut and they were quite small, but I think the outcome was worth it, hope you like it

Cardstock from stash and the backing papers and topper were free in Making Cards last year and never got round to doing them, rose budsfrom stash cannot remember where I bought these. There is also a yellow rose as well so look out for that one.

Well here we are again......

the sun is shining, clear blue skies and quite warm. Hope it lasts :O). No dreaded H.......k for me today seeing as I did most of it at the weekend so decided to have a play with My Craft Studio CD and look at all the digi images and came up with this card, it took me quite a while to set it up as it is 2 separate images and managed to join them together for one card and boy did it take me a while to colour some parts were quite small. I then used sticky ribbon and card candy to decorate.

Firstly table and place settings
next the wedding invitations
now favour boxes and cake bags

and lastly the wedding rings

Sorry not been about.....

You know what its like when you don`t do the h.......k for a couple of days because you are enjoying yourself doing to much crafting,then it finally catches up with you when you can write your name in the dust, so have been very busy and spring cleaned the kitchen top to bottom. I never realised how much junk I had in the cupboards.
Have started the living room, curtains washed, windows cleaned Oh I hate that job :O(  cobwebs removed LOL. Then I decided it was about time I came on to see what was happening and give you all an update, so now just the hoovering and dusting to do and back to crafting after that so look out for new cards soon.
If you have noticed my little chat box please leave an hello.
Take care and hope you all had a better weekend than me :O)
