Jessica's Party Invites

My eldest Granddaughter will be 7 years old on Saturday 25th and is having a small 'exclusive' Pink Birthday Party on the day. She asked if when they came down to our house this afternoon if she could make the three invitations. So seeing as her and her sister ( Isabel aged 15months) were coming for the afternoon I thought I had better make a set in kit form with all the elements for her to put together. I printed the basic cards on my computer using some Pink Petticoat backing paper design and Bell Bottom Laser font for the text. I then made the PINK letters by cutting out in white then in the same pink as the card, cutting them on my Black Cat Cougar. Assembled them and put sticky pads on the back ready to be applied to the card. Jessica has just finished them so thought I would take a picture and post them on my blog.

I now have to finish cutting and assembling the banner I have designed for the summer house which is going to be the venue for the party weather permitting that is !!

A Christening card in a hurry!!

Had to cheat for this card as I had forgotten the date of the christening. It has to be posted down to London so I needed to get it done and ff so it was recieved before this coming weekend. Knowing our wonderful Royal Mail, there was no way I was leaving it any longer.
I downloaded a card kit from here and this particular design is by Kizzy Dizzy Designs. I printed off with my own greeting inside etc and embellished a little more than the original. Useing real ribbon in place of the paper ones and a flora doodle and charm instead of the paper flower on the print out.
Posting it tomorrow so hope it arrives in time.

More Easter Cards

Made a few more Easter Cards over the last few days. Not been able to do too much at once as I seem to have a stubborn eye infection that doesn't want to respond to treatment. Have got some different medication for it this morning so hopefully that will sort the problem out.

All the cards were made using Pink Peticoat images and backing papers, images coloured with watercolour pencils and blended with a damp paint brush. All other embellishments from my stash.
