Can't believe that it was a year ago, some ways it seems ages ago since I was a bride and in other ways it seems to have past so quickly! At least we've made it with no-one getting injured or falling out :o)

The challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to make a card using no shop bought patterned paper, but you can make your own!!! I used versamark with a baby footprint stamp to create a watermark effect and embossed the yellow card.
The challenge at Dutch Dare is to use 3 ribbons and 3 buttons.
The picture isn't great, so I'll try and get a better one tomorrow.

This card is for my friend Pete, who's birthday is on Monday and I thought it was ideal to use this lovely image I received from Natalie.

My hubby asked if I could make a large card for him and his work colleagues to send to a girl that used to work with them. They had just found out that she had collapsed at her new job and had been in a coma, but she is on the mend now. He wants to sent her a thinking of you card from her old work colleagues.
Sorry about the picture, hubby took it in a rush this morning.

If you want some Stamping Bella's check out Dies to Die For and Tracy will be able to send you a list of the ones she has in stock.
Also all the papers that I have used are feebies from a couple of magazines, how good is that!

I got 3 stamps from The Glitter Pot about this time last year and was bitten by the bug. I got Bee Happy, A Tender Hug! and You're a Treasure. As I have no anniversary cards made up I decided to use You're a Treasure
The first card is for my mum to sent to my uncle for his birthday. They live in North Carolina, USA and when he retired they bought a ranch and started breeding Arab horse so we thought this image was perfect.
This card is from me and hubby for my dad and I decided to also go with a golf theme. I made a new years resolution to use up my huge stash of embellishment, since I got bitten by the stamping bug they have just sat doing nothing!! These felt golfing stickers were from MEI Flower and were only about 50p for the pack!
The last card I was asked to do for a lady that I used to work with and who goes to the same church as mum & dad. She texted me on Friday and asked if I could make a 80th birthday card and I just presumed it would be for a lady. When she said it was for a retired farmer called Bill and could I do cows or tractors I did panic a bit. Then I remember I had the tractor and cow quickutz die and this is what I came up with. The tractor hasn't been stuck down wrong, but is meant to be coming down the hill!! Just hope Bill likes it.

My brother wanted a golfing card for my dad . My mum has bought him golfing lessons to get him out of the house now he has taken retirement and is only doing a bit of consultancy. Think she is getting a bit tired with him always been in the house, as he is disturbing her routine shes had for the last 35 odd years!!!
I was struck down with a migraine last night and have been in bed for most of today so i was really looking forward to hubby coming home. Well little did I expect the be subjected to 2 football matches, how many more weeks is this European Cup!!! Thought I would use this lovely little image I received from Michelle at Card Grotto and use the Friday Sketchers sketch.

I also received a lovely Thank You card from Marshall, Jool's son. I sent him some stickers and other things that I didn't use anymore, so he could add them to his crafting stash. Thanks Marshall, it's lovely and now has pride of place on our mantlepiece.
