Getting there

Rain, rain go away.........we have had a couple of really awful downpours this evening and it is running torrents down the road. It's almost reminiscent of the start of the floods two years ago :(

I think I'm getting there regarding the challenges but every time I say that I end up behind again! LOL I've managed to get a few cards done in between assorted commissions but not many. I did the Inspirational challenge last week and made a card (unsuccessfully) for the DT call!

I made this card for a lovely friend who celebrated her 60th last Monday. Numbers were hand cut using wooden templates (and scissors!), papers are all Papermania and the ribbon, lace and charm were all from my stash.

This card was made for DH to take to work last week. Papers are from Patti Picklicious (I am certainly getting my monies worth from that cd :)) The stamp is a Studio G cheapy set and the flourishes are from my new Swirls die by QK.
