Busy weekend!

I've had a fairly productive weekend. I've made some cards that Fae had asked for and I've typed my friend Vicki's NVQ work for her. I've thoroughly enjoyed my extra day of freedom and managed to make 4 cards. The first being another card for Rylee's 1st birthday in July. Yes, I know I'm being premature but I just felt the need to do them lol! So here it is.... This is the card I've made for my parents to give Rylee. Orange CS from The Papermill Shop, giraffe paper from a cd i got off ebay with loads of backing papers on. The giraffe image is from Carol which she also kindly inked for me. The buttons are also from Carol's RAK. Ribbon is from Pearl's RAK. I cut the number 1 freehand and stuck it to some cream pearl CS and faux stitched using my gold sakura stardust pen. Peel offs from stash.
This was made using CS from The Papermill Shop, paper from stash, image from Jo's PIF, which I coloured using Twinkling H2O's and watercolour pencils, blooms from Bazzill, brads from stash, SUE cut out with Hippy Chick Alpha's and sprinkled with glamour dust.CS from The Papermill Shop, paper downloaded from here, really cheap too! image from Vicki's RAK coloured with Twinkling H2O's, watercolour pencils and sakura stardust pens, number 3 cut with Hippy Chick Alpha's and button from stash.
Another one of Jo's images from RAK (god knows what I'm gonna do when I've used 'em all lol!)coloured with Twinkling H2O's, watercolour pencils and sakura stardust and a bit of glamour dust for her wings. CS from stash, paper from Raspberry_Road_Designs - Flower Girl paper, frame cut with nestie, blooms and brads from stash. Again used the Hippy Chick Alpha's to cut out the number 1.
So, as you can see I got a lot done this weekend, which is surprising for saying how I felt!
