In the first I had the reddy ink pads I needed to finish off some cards, plus it seemed a waste just getting them so I got some more flowers (I didn't have any this shade) and a new die so I can make flowers!!
The second and third had some interfacing, bit boring but necessary; and this scrummy fabric I got from ebay. The photo doesn't do the colours justice as it's a lovely lime shade, just right for bags (I have a feeling these will be this years birthday presents)!
I saved this one for last as I was most excited about this one! I bought this wallet from Lucylocket's etsy shop for my niece Lucy's birthday next week as I'm sure she will love the owls. It's really lovely so go have a look! I'm in the middle of making something myself for her and at the moment I'm not sure how it's going to turn out as, surprise, surprise, it's a bit wonky already!!
The arrival of the inkpads meant I could finish these cards for a ruby wedding anniversary. This month, on mum's side of the family, we have 3 big wedding anniversaries. This 40th, a 50th and a 60th, so I need to make 3 cards for each (for mum and dad, nan and myself to send). Plus it's mum and dad's anniversary too so add to that their cards for each other! I enjoy the challenge of it really even if I do whinge, I just thank goodness for card sketches.
This first one uses 7gypsies paper, bug-cut numbers and woodware wedding words stamps.
This next one is loosely based on Di Hickman's sketch last week. I had this paper in my scraps so I'm not sure what it is. The frame is a stamp from autumn leaves which I embossed around the printed greeting, then cut it out to frame the 'love'.
