At long last - I have not been doing much crafting due to the sunny weather, but here is a card I have made for my cousins wedding, using a Lily of the Valley stamp which I just love, I shall be entereing the card on this weeks challenge at Papertake weekly... have used new punches on it that I treated myself too, as well as the lovely pins I got in Hobbycraft... went to town on this card and am quite pleased with the results...

Here's a wedding card I have been asked to make for a friend at work - my first time using the lovely fancy pins which I got from Hobbycraft, 30 for £2.99 which I thought pretty good, I also got the leaf punch up there but want another more 'spikey' leaf that I've seen used on lots of cards lately - hmm, my making cards for others doesnt 'make' me much as I just want more goodies then!!!! Anyway, this is also to be used in 2 challenges this week, Papertake weekly - a sketch challenge which I've turned a bit, and also the monthly challenge at Sir Stampalot for the use of punches....

Busy with mens cards as June see's my dads birthday as well as fathers day, so here's dad's birthday card, he and mum travel loads so thought a travel inspired card would be ideal, using 'Heartfelt Stickers'.... and its my entry into Cute Card Thursday - no designer papers!
A nice girlie pink card here, for my ex-sister in law, the image is one I received in a swap over on the Trimcraft forum, I love it and find the swaps a great way of getting a range of images to see which ones you would use a lot of... Using this one as my entry for the challenge on Papertake Weekly sketch challenge too...
A few cards to upload today - ones I've made over this week and just finishing off, adding greetings etc... so here is the first, a thank you card for Emma for the fabbie pens I won in her blog challenge, I've coloured this image using the new Copics and some of my pro-markers... i cant decide which I like best but love em all!!!

Hope you have all enjoyed the sunny weekend - I'm a summer time girl so its perfect for me, we enjoyed family BBQs and generally relaxed in the garden... here's a pic my youngest son Harry took of Rocco... we lost our old dog Bailey a few weeks back which was hard but she had been poorly so we knew it wouldnt be long... looks like Rocco enjoyed the sun too - really he was way to hot and didnt know what to do with himself.
Its my stepdaughter Hannah's 15th birthday next week - I love making girlie cards as you can go totally ott on embellisments and glitter! I cant take the credit for the design as I copied it from Caz over at 'aloadofoldblogocks' blogspot but it was just perfect for Hannah's birthday, and the digi image is a freebie - click here to bag it for yourself http://stamphappens.com/shop/images/maddiefeb.jpg

This weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is to make a card for Someone Special - so here's my entry, its for my friend Melody' who's birthday is on Monday, using digi images from DigiStamp Boutique, and K and Co papers... I loved these muted colours...
My first attempt at a word book - for Kian's baptism which is tomorrow (fingers crossed for more sunshine...?!), I printed the letters out on the PC and assembled the book using my Bind-it-All - it was fun to do and I'm pleased with how its turned out, and thanks go to a Trimmie member for the idea and tips on making it (saving me buying a special CD or wording templates!)
I did a workshop last Saturday over at A1 cards in Creaton (Northants) and here's my creation, a tissue box cover made from a template - using thick card they are quite sturday and of course decorated however you want... maybe more will be made for gifts later in the year!

Here's the card I created for the challenge on Emma's blog, the proceeds of the sale of the digi image are going to the Yorkshire air ambulance, and once you read Emma's story I'm sure you'll agree what a worthwhile cause it is (see pic in image bar on the right, you can get to Emma's blog via the Pollycraft link).
