A few cards

Well its 4 days until my sisters wedding, still got the table plan to finish then I think thats it, better sort out myself then!!!! Not even got any jewellery to wear I have been so busy with stationery etc...
Here are a few cards I made last night ( I needed a break from the wedding stuff)
The card below is for my sister to give to her friends Dad who is driving them in his posh car to the wedding and then to the reception, he is doing it as a pressie to them but Claire wanted to thank him and pop a few quid in for a drink to say thanks!
Photos are a bit naff as I had to use the flash as it is a very dark day here today

  • Card blank is DL from CWC
  • Paper is new Papermania Mens papers
  • Stamp from Cheers to You set from Stampin Up
  • Lettering with Dovecraft 99p stamp sets

The next card is for my sister to give to some friends of theirs who got married a few weeks ago in Las Vegas

  • Card blank in Gelato from CWC
  • Background is Cuttlebugged with hearts
  • Stamp is my favourite from Funstamps (which Natty bought me for Xmas)
  • Ribbon by Bazzill from CWC
  • Gems from Papermania

Finally here are a few really quick and simple Fathers Day cards, all are using the new Papermania papers and the Cheers to You stamp and card blanks from CWC as before. I have added Liquid Pearls to the beer so it looks more realistic. Sorry about the photos they are quite shocking as you cannot even read the sentiments, they do say Happy Fathers Day!!

Forgot to say before the Beer mug is coloured in using my new Stampin Up marker pens in Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana, I have gone round the edge with Bashful Blue to highlight the image (a little tip I got from the crazy Monica!!!)

Right thats it for now, please pray for Sunshine on Saturday, the weather forecast says 60% chance of rain at the moment
Oh no!!
