Catch Up!

I can't believe that another two weeks have flown by since I have last blogged. Work is just started to ease slightly but I now have jewellery parties booked so must really get some made!!! I also need to get some Christmas cards made so hopefully will be scouring blogs and forums for inspiration.
Here is what I've been up to for the last couple of weeks:This card was ordered by a special friend for her daughter's birthday later this week. The wallet is lack pearlescent card, the skull is a font recommended by the lovely Mrs R (thanks Rhi) I enlarged it to approximately 400 points and printed it onto white card. The bones were hand drawn and held on with a screw brad. I added some large googly eyes and the birthday greeting is written with Doodlebug rub ons. The insert was printed with another skeleton font. The skull charm is fastened on with black ribbon.
The next card is for Amy from me, as is the necklace.I used the same skull as I'd printed it too small for the first card, and I just added white brads for eye balls! Paper is from the gorgeous Chalk Garden kit from the Scrummy Stash Cafe Greeting was printed on the pc and inked, brad is from stash.
Cord is from Ribbon Oasis, the skull was from ebay and the findings were from my stash.
The next pics are of a couple of rush orders I got in last week.
The jewellery above uses sterling silver findings, white faux pearls and beautiful 4mm AB Swarovski crystals.
Ivory wedding invitations with dried rose buds and three heart shaped crystals.
And finally, my first international wedding order through my web site. They have gone to Chicago!!!
All the gift bags were hand made by me too. They were another first and I was really pleased with the way they turned out.

I made six 'bridesmaid' bags and five for the male members of the wedding party and six thank you cards.
We are all full of cold at the moment and feeling grotty and wooly headed! I hope it doesn't hang around for too long!
Off now to do the latest 'dare' and to have a look at some of the challenges on Just Bex. I might be back later or it might be another two weeks ;)) I will also try to find the card I made for Sadie's challenge :)
