Time Flies

Wow once again it has been a long time since I blogged!!  was a bit of a shock to see the last time was1st November!!

So much has happened since I have not been here.  My biggest most exciting thing is that, I got engaged to my boyfriend of 10 years.  He surprised me on my Birthday in November, he had planned it all, bought a ring, and been to ask my Dad's permission.  I thought we weren't going to get married after all this time together and was quite happy with that, but am also happy that we are going to.  Things have been busy so we haven't yet made any plans, but we intend to get married next year.

Have made quite a lot of cards over the past few months so I will just share a few of them with you now.

Fiance Christmas card:

Really bad picture - sorry about that, card is now packed away so I can't take another one!! 

Digi stamp boutique image, coloured with Pro markers, sentiment computer generated, ribbon slide recycled from wedding place name cards at a friends wedding last year.  I am like a magpie when it comes to things like this I just have to take them home and re-use them lol. 
Backing paper is from a stack which lost the cover for so I am not sure who it is by, I think it may have been MME? Ribbon and small pearls from stash.

New Baby boy

Very quick card made one evening for a colleague who's wife had a baby boy, image from digital delights, coloured with pro markers, backing paper was from a box of paper I picked up in a local charity shop.  Boy stamp also from a charity shop box and I'm sorry I don't know where it is from as there was no packaging.  

This was Harriet my oldest nieces Christmas card, tree and robbins image Pink Petticoat coloured with pro markers.  Skating girl Lily ice skating from Pink Cat studio, again coloured with pro markers, oval cut with nesties and covered with glossy accents to give and icy effect, I also added a little glamour dust for sparkle.  Backing paper dovecraft christmas glitter stack.  This is a 8 x 8 card which is my fav size at the moment!!

This one was for my middle niece Olivia, she LOVES sweets so when I saw this little lady over at Pink Cat studio I knew she was the one.  Coloured her with pro markers and added glamour dust.
Backing paper Papermania Pepers Christmas house stack, little candy cane button was one of many I picked up at Westpoint craft show last year, but sorry I don't know the company name.  Ribbon and gems from stash, snowflake cut with a Marianne design die using cuttlebug.

Final one for today was for my little niece Matilda, she loves swings and it is a fight to get her off them whenever we go to the park.  Again I found this little image at Pink Cat studio, coloured her with pro markers.  Ribbon and candy cane from stash, backing paper from Dovecraft 8x8 Christmas stack.

Thanks for looking!! I will try to keep up to date a bit more from now on, I still have lots to show you from the past few months but won't bombard you today.

Hope you have all been well, I will visit all the blogs I follow over the next few days to see what you have all been up to!
