OMG so busy!!!

Good morning folks I have been so busy the last few weeks creating my stall ready for 9th June craft-fest
I have also been busy doing more commission cards this time for a holy communion,
unfortunately i didn't have time to photograph them (I forgot) I really must remember to do this in future,
I was a bit stuck on what to do as there were for two girls,anyway after some research I decided to do crosses using my spellbinders and flowers very pale soft colours,the cards turned out beautiful and the customers were very happy with them,
I have also been up to it in decorating, and de cluttering which sounds so easy but becomes a nightmare when you know you don't need to keep stuff but you do anyway just in case. so my de-cluttering didn't go to well,

my life seems to get busier the older I get,

Today's card

As its the jubilee this weekend i thought i would included a very British card
everyone knows Portobello road,
this was such a easy one to do,
starting with a blank card I edged using my favourite glue faux pearls,
I then using a spellbinder die to match the shape of the card cut out a black backing card and ran it through a embossibility folder to give texture
I had some union jack paper and again using a die cut the shape I wanted I kept to the shape of the card
in my stash of paper I found the Portobello road sign backed it again on black card added some gems on the corners and with foam tape backed it on my union jack paper at an angle,
I found a traditional London bus accent added that and made a bow using red white and blue ribbon,added 3 pins to the bow again red white and blue keeping my British theme going. to finish i used some silver peel of borders to edge my black card.

I hope you like the card, I think this could be used for any occasion, male or female,
anyway that's it for today folks visit my shop at www.taylormadecards.co.uk

I hope you all have a fantastic jubilee weekend what ever you all do to celebrate it,
and I hope you all enjoy your extra days off
that's all for now folks so
