More catching up

......and a yummy sneaky peak!!

I got some new Kanban goodies last week so have been making samples with those and have also made the most of the weather this week as I missed it all last year with being at the shop 24/7 (or at least that's what it felt like!) My garden was seriously neglected last year as I seem to be the only one who can weed it so consequently it has taken me three days to weed the back. On Sunday I went outside at about 9.30 and it was 8.35 when I finally went in. (We had a bbq so I didn't even have to go in to cook dinner). It is now done and planted with bedding plants so I can relax a bit. I have also enjoyed working outside in the sunshine and am developing quite a tan so I won't look too pasty when we go to Cornwall next month :)

I had a wedding order collected today, I made two wedding cards yesterday and decorated an album and keepsake box and now have an order for 5 sympathy cards :( This week is going to be a real mixed bag of work.

I've had this Stampendous stamp for years now and it's still one of my favourite wedding stamps. I've just kept it really simple and added tiny diamantes down the back of the dress and to the centre of the flowers in the bouquet.
This stamp is also one of my favourites. A gorgeous image called 'I Do' from Lili of the Valley. I've just coloured the image lightly with Promarkers as I wanted to give you a taste of things to come from Funky Hand 

The paper is taken from the latest Papercraft Factory cds and is called Wishes and Kisses. It will be released on Thursday and Anice will be demoing on Create and Craft later this month, I think it's the 15th but I will check and let you know for definite. It is an absolutely amazing cd with approximately 17529 elements on it. The paper collections are gorgeous, there are new digi stamps, alphabets and for the first time Anice has included lower case letters in with the word books. I'm probably biased so you'll just have to buy it for yourself and see how megatastic it really is lol

I must go and get these cards made now.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jackie. I've been gardening every these last few days - if not all day like you. Don't like too much heat though so yesterday was better for me.
I image on the first card a fabulous haven't seen it before and the whole card is just gorgeous. The second - I have seen is lovely too - sweet image and lovely bp's. I'll have to try to catch a show with the cd.
Made Neil's wordbook - not sure if I'm ready to share it with the blog world though.
