Happy Sunny Wednesday

Hello lovely bloggers, how are you all on this glorious day?  Well I just thought I would post
some of my latest creations, happenings and doings :0)))) firstly I have these two Wedding
Cards to show you the first one was for my friends Sons Wedding that she commissioned me
to do........................
The Dove punch is Martha Stewart, the lovely Olive twigs come with this and I have punched more so I could make the heart shape with them.  I have used my Sizzix Die Cutting machine (Big Shot) 
to cut the heart dies from the silver foil card.  The Mr & Mrs tag I made using my sewing maching to attach the card and then used the wired stem of a paper rose for the hanging.  Lace and Ribbon from stash.  The sentiment was done on my PC with added gems and backed with Silver foil card. 
Here's a little close up :0) 
..... this is the one I made from us.  I  have covered the whole card with these white paper petals that I have had forever, I can't remember where they came from now but I also have them in Pink!  I have tried to arrange them into hearts and glued them on. 
Here's a little close up, I have added two punched hearts and the words Love, Loyalty, Laughter,
Happy Ever After!  which I tucked into the petals, these were made using my PC.  Two roses were added and a cream ribbon
The are the beautiful flowers from the Wedding, they were just gorgeous and the lovely strong scent from them was just amazing!  Can you see the L O V E on the top table! how cool does that look and all those lovely little jam jars were decorated by the bride herself! xx
Now, this card I made for my friends 40th, she did tell me what she would like on the card: the brief was, "I love Giraffe's"!!!!...... can I have one, with a butterfly on it's nose looking boss eyed! so this was my end result.  I hand drew the giraffe and cut out a template, then used some snake skin effect paper,(I
think this came from the Works)! I cut the markingsfrom brown card and used black card for the eyes and ears, added some google eyes and a pink bow!
The biggest Cream Slice in the World! YUM!! My own creation, this was the cake I made her when she came over.......this recipe just happened! as they do when you are feeling a tad creative!  I used ready made puff pastry, which I rolled out to the size of the baking tray and cooked for about 15-20 mins or until it is really light and fluffy and has risen!  Once it has cooled I spread a layer of Strawberry Jam, then whisked some double cream which I added some Vanilla extract to and then spread that on top.  You can add fresh Strawberries too......mmmmmmmmmm.... then the top layer of pastry which I have covered in icing sugar, just mixed with water.........................delicious :0))) xx 
Now why we are on the subject of Creations, this was hubbies idea of jet washing the patio!!!!
ahhhh how could I not love this? xx  I don't want to wash it off now. 
Now I know your thinking, "just seen that card"? well look again, it's a slight variation of the previous one, a neighbour saw the one I had made and commissioned one for her Niece's wedding!  All I
did differently was change the font and added purple backing card to all of the words. 
.....and a bit of glitter on the roses :0)) xx
Now finally, these two cards, the first one is for my friend Dawn, who like me is mad about cats, this little Penny Black image is just soooo adorable, can you see I have added some Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Orange Blossom to emphasis his fur, I think it makes him look even fluffier! ha ha.  The backing papers are from an old pad DCWV called Garden Party, I am still reluctant to use these as they are just beautiful! The sentiment (No Outfit) stamp is from Hobby Art and the (It's your day) is from the new
set from Katy Sue Designs called Simpler Times designed by Elisabeth Bell.  I wrote her name on the little mug to personalise it.

Here's a little close up of that flower soft.
.........are you still here? ha ha and finally finally this little card I made for my Niece who was one
on Saturday, this is my first LOTV stamp and I only purchased it last week!!! shock horror!!! where have I been hiding, it is so adorable and I  just loved colouring this one too, which I did with my
water colour paints as with the Penny black one.  I love how all these pastel colours have merged 
to make it lovely and soft.  The  frame and letters have been done using my Big Shot, don't you just love that machine?!!!............. 
......backing papers are not out yet they are from a new Katy Sue Designs CD which will be launched on the Create and Craft channel W/C 17th May and it's going to be Pick of the Week, so make sure you tune in. :0)) They are just gorgeous. 
 Thanks for looking, have a happy Wednesday, Happy Crafting, Sue xx
