Three Weddings, A Baby and a Birthday!

A mixed bag of cards required for this week....

First up is a selection of Wedding acceptance cards - you know the sort of thing that costs a fortune in Clintons!

This one was so quick to make - 3 punched hearts with diamantes, a piece of ribbon and a printed greeting. It honestly took about 15 minutes tops to make and most of that time was waiting for glue to dry.

I love these cuttlebug hearts - they are the most versatile dies I have after my Nesties. At first I thought these designs were a bit TOO simplistic but after extensive research (popping into Clinton's) most acceptance cards are very similar.

More cuttlebug hearts - this time in silver. I got a bit carried away with the glitter but the customer loved it.

I would have loved this card when I was eight and loved all things pink. All the shop cards for this age group seemed a wee bit 'old' for my liking - loads of them had shoes and handbag images which I felt were really more suitable for teens. Therefore my big number templates were used again...
My mojo was flagging by the time I got to this one but I was still pleased that I had made all five cards in one night. There's a lot of white space on this card cos I didn't want any patterned paper clashing with the glittery stork sticker. There's something missing from it but I didn't really know what else to add.
