"Etremely Quick Card"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who pops by.  You are all very welcome, I love having you here.  Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Golden Wedding Card.
Once again my week has passed in a flash.  I am reeling with the speed it has gone by.  
I have finished the order for cards, all delivered and customer very happy.  Hate to say it, but I hope that`s the last big order for a while.  Got all the flowers and bits cut out for last Tuesday class now I have a very, very sore left wrist.  My wrist is sore with holding onto the GC while I turn the handle with my right hand,  In the end I had to use my eBosser which I really do not like.  Don`t ask me why, I just don`t like it.  They keep saying how wonderful it cuts, well sorry I find it no better than my GC and nothing as good as my wee Cuttlebug which I LOVE to bits.  However it did get me out of a tight spot.
My card today is so simple, it is all I could manage while the wrist plays up and with what time I have at the moment.
I got the inspiration for the card from Jules (http://jules-alwayswithaheart.blogspot.co.uk/ ) she makes some stunning cards that always look so fresh and pristine.


My card was made from some bits that were lying round.  I used then rather than put them in the Bit Box or the bag for the school
Base card 5 x 5 pre-scored
Spotty paper printed from a CD
Pink stripe Tilda paper
Pink and Lilac card bits
Stamp from Stamps Away 
Scrap of ribbon, only enough for round the card then a knot rather than a bow
Some Pearls from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs

"Golden Wedding Wishes"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who happens to pass by.  Thank you for taking time to come visit, I really enjoy that you do that.  
I have to apologise if I have missed commenting over the past few days.  Time is flying by and I am still working on orders, nearly finished thank goodness.  Lets hope that`s it for a while
Very busy here at the Ranch over the weekend.   Boys here for a sleepover on Friday till late Saturday afternoon.  Great fun though, we took them over to to visit Auntie Hazel & Uncle Charlie on Saturday.  On route you just happen to pass Poles Apart Craft Shop in Cupar, Fife.  It would be bad manners to pass the door of such a wonderful shop and not pop in.  There is a great Play Park plus a Railway Station near by.  Grandpa took the boys to play, then watch some trains while Granny browsed in the shop.
Anyone who visits St Andrews or lives within driving distance of Cupar you really must pay a visit to the Craft Shop.  They are featured in Making Cards Magazine this month.  The welcome you get is fantastic with the offer of a cup of Tea or Coffee immediately, loads of free parking ....what more can you ask for.
Along to Hazel`s for a nice lunch, boys sat and watched their choice of DVD while we all had a great chat in the kitchen.
Sunday (today) I have been busy trying to complete that order for cards.  After I finish this I also have to Die Cut hundreds of flowers for the project we are doing at the Craft Class on Tuesday.  We are doing a Wicker Heart Wreath, there are approx 8/10 flowers/leaves on each and I have them to cut......!!!!!
Here is one of the cards from my order.  I know the couple who will be receiving it do not have a computer so will not be looking at any Blogs including mine.


Base card approx 7 x 7
Embossing Folder inked with TH Squeezed Lemonade, white card run through to give a delicate background
Computer generated sentiment mounted on some SB Die Cut Ovals
SB Blossom Five for the Roses
A Britannia Die for the leaves

That`s it for today
Off to finish the cards and get on with the Die Cutting
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs
