At long last ...

... I've finally been able to connect to the internet tonight!  I finished off a commission wedding card today - I find it really hard making cards for folks I don't know - have no idea of their tastes, etc.  Oh well, I hope they like it when their auntie gives it.

I raided the cupboard over at Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard http://ikkiscuttlebugcupboard.blogspot.com/ for ideas - thanks so much, Ikki - your cards and tutorials are amazing!

Sorry it's so dark - now it's dark by 6.30pm I find it impossible to take decent pics.  Anyway, the card is white, three flowers punched out with Harry (my Cuttlebug), backed with purple patterned paper and pearls, and the cut outs added to the bottom of the card, with purple brads. 

The writing is computer generated, using Papyrus font in a purple to match the flowers.



I added a patterned vellum insert with the 'love is patient and kind ...' quote from 1 Corinthians 13, and a matching blank piece opposite, for the message.  This shows glue blobs behind corners of paper - managed to squash these out, so they don't show live.



A very simple, quick card and I think I'll knock a few out on this theme, to add to the Teddy Wares stash.

I'll take some better pics and enter it for Scrapbook Sisters (flowers) http://scrapbooksisters.blogspot.com/ and the Tuesday Throwdown (threes) at http://tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/

Just time tonight to check out and get some more inspiration from my fav blogs.  I'll make some more cards for sale tomorrow and Sat night - need more stock.

Night night All! xx

What amazing blog candy here, girls - http://www.blogger.com/home
