At last.....

I've now finished mums birthday cards, I just need to put inserts in them, so they have been crossed off the list and I can show them :) the second card fits last Friday's dare

The image is another Penny Black stamped for me a while ago by my bloggin' bud, Jo. Take a look at her blog, her work is fantastic. The ric rac is felt and is from the new Sweet Nothings range by Papermania and it is luverly!! Flowers are a mix of Papermania and ebay! LOL This card is from DS and DD, both of whom are still at home.

This next card is from DD and BF who don't :)

My mother is worse than Imelda Marcos for shoes so decided a shoe card would be appropriate! It took me ages to get the proportions correct for this card.............it started life as a QK die cut :) The shoe is actually gold and I bought the leopard print card about three years ago and didn't know what to do with it until now. Papers (I think) are K & Co, flowers are from Dunelm and everything else is either done on the pc or gold peel offs! Yes they have been outed just for the DCM Dare from last Friday. (Just for you Lythan ;))

This is the first page of my brother's scrapbook.

I wanted to keep the first page as simple as possible because I wanted to use this sheet of paper. I got it in one of the mini scrap kits from Papermania and really liked it. The frame and the bear are both from the Bear Neccessities kit from Nitwit Unfortunately the site is down for maintainance at the mo but it is definitely worth a look when it comes back online.

So now the 'to do' list reads as:

an exploding box (now cut out)

10 extra evening invitations for a couple who miscounted!

2 birthday cards for my mum Done

Bespoke feather fascinator Done

another breast cancer awareness phone charm

start my samples for Debbi Moore Started
start my brother's scrapbook album (Started - done first page but need to photograph) Done

sort out a Braille menu and order of the day Done
Cake topper for mum's birthday cake Done
Necklace and keepsake box for mum's birthday

Price and deliver jewellery and tiaras to shop Done
100 Christmas cards, order confirmed

Seating plan, 9 table names and 80 place cards

When I next do my to do list I shall delete the finished work and then hopefully I will see it going down :)
