over 1000 posts.....

can you image it... yes I have I have posted over 1000 times.... this is in fact my 1002nd post....

today I have a card to share, that I made for a friend at work for a wedding she was going to...

Blingy Wedding card.

The brief was for a "blingy" wedding card.   I searched Flickr for ideas and then Pinterest... and finally came up with this card... being a combination of ideas from about 4  different cards.  The PP is from a Rosie's Studio pack of Wedding papers, trimmed and mounted on some silver mirror card  The heart is a Spellbinders one... two co-ordinating dies used together... one cuts the inside and one the outer part, cut from the silver mirror card.  The banner and sentiment are from a Simon Says Stamp, stamp and die set.. Lots of silver gems.  Inside I embossed down one side added the silver heart from the centre of the front panel and the sentiments " Happily Ever After" and Congratulations both from the SSS set.   My friend was over the moon about it.  

I took my Christmas cards into work and managed to sell $60 worth.  Just in time to buy some more PP to make some little tea light boxes like this one I made for a friend's birthday

Tea Light Gift box

I'm doing some Christmas ones for little gifts this year. 

I want to thank all of my followers for visiting and I really appreciate all the wonderful supportive comments I get.  You are the best.
