Sorry for the lack of blogging this past week. I've been off work ill, i've had some horrible bug which really has knocked me for six but I am back and feeling back to my normal self!!
So...before my leave of absence I was telling you all that I had lots of commissions coming in left right and centre. Well I've finished them over the weekend - and now guess what? I've got four more! It just doesn't seem to stop and I love it!
So my number one fan ordered a birthday card for her Grandma and Grandad after seeing the ones I made for my other friend. As it was for her, I knew I had to make them extra special - so I set to work. Tonight I am going to show you the "Grandma" card.
I knew that if I wanted an extra pretty girly card I know I had to use my Pink Petticoat stash. I used an image of a wheelbarrow stocked up with some beautiful flower pots which I coloured in using Promarkers. I love the prettiness of the yellow its so fresh and bright without being too in your face. I used kraft card and another Pink Petticoat release - daisy bouquet in daffodil. I finished the card off with my homemade sentiment ribbon, some button twine and a couple of adhesive pearls!
I liked the outcome so much, I recreated it for my mums friends Birthday in pink!
For this card I used a sentiment tag which I stitch on when stitching the background. I really like these, I think I'm going to be using them more often. I finished this with bakers twine and a beautiful bright pink button.
So what do you think?
I hope you're all ok! I've been keeping up to date with all the blogs - they've been cheering me up whilst recovering.
I'll be back tomorrow, with "Grandad's" card.
