Inchies Challenge

The challenge set by Lotstodo this week is to include an inchie or several in your piece. This was the first time I have ever attempted to make an inchie and as you can see, I got carried away and made nine! The cardstock is actually a lovely sparkly brown but hasn't photographed very well. Click to have a closer look.

Silver Wedding cards

Here is a photo of our Silver Wedding cards received from friends and family. Underneath is a photo of the day it all happened in the Seychelles 25 years ago. Seems just like yesterday!

Christmas card

Gosh, it is ages since I updated my blog - sorry folks! I'm not keen on making Christmas cards I have to admit, but this one kind of came in via the back door. I was impressed by a card on Clarity Stamps' gallery using a tree stamp I had, so I played around with it, then sprinkled silver glitter embossing powder on it and suddenly it made me think Christmas. I added the sentiment and layered it up with silver mirror card and here it is - my first Christmas card of 2009! Only 119 more to do, lol!
