Blue Wedding Card!

Hi friends! I had to make 2 cards for the same wedding, one for my sister and one for my brother. I was given free reign which is lovely. I used an EF from Couture Creations , a die from Spellbinders the sentiment and punches are from SU and some pretty ribbon and flower from my stash! I sprayed the card with glimmer
mist before embossing , to prevent tearing , so it has a shimmer as well! Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

Aussie Christmas Cards!

Hi friends! My dd2 Holly, asked me to make her Aussie Christmas cards for relatives she just met while they were over in Uk in September. I think these will do nicely.

The paper is from Kaisercraft last year.  Added some gold, and glitter and shine to his nose..I love them ! ( made 7) thanks for popping by, I am very grateful for your lovely comments !
