Stunning Bride

My niece married on Saturday 23rd here are a couple of photos, doesn't she look stunning and her page boy looked fantastic in his Cornish kilt. He was so good especially during the ceremony as he had the wedding rings in his sporran and right on queue he gave them to the bride and groom as they exchanged their vows and he's only just 3 years old.
Edit 23rd Feb -whoops their page boy is only 2 years old, sorry about that. lol It just emphasizes how good he was!

Sheeps cake! tutorial

I hope the above sheet is ok, it's the 1st one I've done. Please let me know if it could be improved! lol
The reason I've used the scalloped circle for the legs is I don't have the word window punch and that's how I do mine, hopethat make sense,lol.

Crimp and punch

At last I managed to spend some time in my craft room today. Here is one card I've finished. The crimped background instructions can be found here: http://stamping411.blogspot.com/2009/09/crimped-over-top-tutorial.html


For the flower -I used Stampin ups 5 petal punch x2 punchies and the trio flowers punch. The punch I used for the leaves was an EK success punch.

I used pattened paper that I've had for some time for the 2x 5 petal and for the centre I punched out a flower from a tissue box using the trio punch.

White card with the edge cut and scored for used.
