Flower Haul!

Quick photo of my flower haul from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I can't recommend them enough! I ordered this batch on a Saturday and it arrived Tuesday morning. I messaged them to ask if they could speed it up (not that they are normally slow in anyway) and it arrived asapp ( as soon as postally possible.)

This picture shows their Poppies, Sweetheart Blossoms, Apple and Cherry Blossoms.

Bonkers Nail Art Card

Trying to post from the Blogger App today, not many formating options but I'll do my best :)
This is a customer order to give to a friend who is a Nail Artiste. I'm hoping if she's into Nails she'll get the concept and have a chuckle.
Nails are all painted with acrylic paints with added gems and stickles glitter. I used Pinterest nail art pictures for inspiration.

Another new baby :)

This is a card for a customer order. He is a new grandparent and it had to be something a little bit special, and here it is! :) Relieved to say he really liked it. I've taken out a few of the details but you can imagine that any info could go in the text parts and the layout could be transferred for any colour scheme or a special paper you might want to include.

 I love the All About Boys Stack from DCWV. It's not a new thing but honestly I think I have used it for so many projects it's been worth every penny. The 12x12 pad is still available to buy on line for approx £20.

Sixty Kitties.

Another customer order via Etsy! She had some very specific requirements and it was really good fun to do! Anyone that is happy with kitsch and bling is my kind of customer ;) The recipient was really into cats (Seal Pointed Ragdolls) and bling, butterflies and the expression "Bothered? Not!" I also did a customised inner and back to the card.

I think it might be rather nice to do a digi image of cats and numbers for the milestone birthdays and anniversaries? Good idea? 

Cats coloured with copics, my own design.
Diecut 3D butterflies from Xcut. 
Stickles Candy Cane Glitter. 
Paper from a Nancy Watt collection that appeared in Making Cards magazine.

Happy Retirement!

Another customer order, this time for a large retirement card. All the items in the wheel are things of interest or relevant to him. (List supplied by the customer!)  This card is my largest standard size, not sure I've ever done bigger than 20cmx20cm, might have to give it a go!

Papers are from the Here and There Collection by Studio Calico.
