Wedding season

I'm sorry if all my cards are a bit samey these days - I've been quite busy with commissions lately and everyone wants the same sort of thing.  This is another wedding card made with a lot of help from my cricut and of course featuring an acetate dome and a few goodies for Wild Orchid Crafts. The top hat (cut at 5") and tiara (cut at 3") were cut from the Wedding Solutions cartridge and the doily inside is from Mothers Day 2010.  I'd like to enter this card into this weeks Fantabulous Circut Challenge #121 Wedding Bliss :)

Another book card

These cards are proving very popular and I've been asked to make a few of them.  I don't really like making the same card over and over again so I decided to follow a sketch with this one.  As you can see I didn't use my main image in the sketch but substituted the sentiment.

I'd like to enter this into sketch saturday challenge #216

Book card

This is the second of these cards I've made. To be honest I preferred the first one I made but of course I didn't take a picture of it before it was collected.  Always the way isn't it.
I used papermania papers, Wryn and Emmy BFF digi and a Whimsy sentiment stamp.  The other sentiment and bunting I created on the pc.
There was a lot of folding to create the 'pages' of the book, so I thought I would enter this month's cupcake craftroom challenge - which is layers.   Laters ;)

sketch and stash, and stash and stash

This card may look simple, I suppose it is simple but, my oh my it was a labour of love.  My sister in law asked me to make a couple of cards for her sister, one from her, one from my nephews, I decided to follow the sketch at Sketch N Stash.  Its a really straight forward sketch but could I make it work - this was actually my third attempt.  I don't know what was wrong with the other two but they really didn't work.  I'm happy with this one though and thankfully so is my SIL and her boys.
The sentiment is computer generated, the doily I cut on my cricut and every thing else is from kanban.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

:-h Hi, if anyone is still here that is.  I'm still struggling for internet access but we are due to be reconnected on 17th July so normal service should resume about then.  I thought I would share another wedding card I made recently - sorry it's so similar to the last card I blogged.  I have actually  made quite a few others but, I didn't manage to get any pics of them before the were collected.   I feel I should also apologise for my lack of commenting.  My teeny weeny mobile internet gizmo just isn't up to it.  I will makes amends however when we are reconnected.
