Celestial

Ok, how did it get to be the 8th of June! The weeks are flying past and theres so much to do. Finally got the first batch of wedding invites written and in the post, I'm doing it in stages as doing them all in one go was proving impossible. I've been mega busy, had my dress alterations done and I'm going back later on, so exciting! I've even been making cards, but just haven't had a moment to photograph and blog them...

Last Sunday I went to the Stamp Fair in Edinburgh with the fantastically talented Lynne, unfortunately we spent a couple of hours parked on the motorway as there were mahoosive queue's on the Forth Road Bridge but luckily we're both expert craft shoppers and we used our precious 75 minutes of shopping time wisely! How lovely are the new cuttlebug embossing folders, stocked up on a good few of them, some gorgeous stamps and a few pretty brads. Of course I mean to take a pic to share but time... well... it's in short supply! So instead I'll share the bits as I use them.

Onto this weeks fabulous Dare set by Keryn, it certainly got me thinking, and using some of those new goodies...
I used my Gorgeous new Penny Black clear alphabet stamps, they're just so funky and I know I'm going to use them loads, A cuttlebug Embossing folder to texture the centre of the sun which I doodled on to match the alpha, and freehand sun rays. All on a background of Blonde Moments Spring Fling paper. Plus the glue was actually dry on the card by the time the dare was launched, which is a first for a few weeks!

I'm hoping to spend a couple of hours in the garden this afternoon and get rid of some of the weeds, got to protect those wedding flowers. I might even take some pics when I'm done.

Happy Crafting!

I LOVE your card! It is gorgeous! Its the sort of card I look at and then get depressed - wishing I could come up with that sort of style and design! Its so funky and bright without being 'too much'. Brilliant!

Well done!

I wubs this card. And the alpha. I've realised it is just about the same as Rebecca's birthday font if you want to do some small printing with it as well.
I can tell I'm going to have to get some of those embossing folders as they are great!
