Busy Saturday.

Good evening girls. Today I went to a crop at my local craft shop. I took the day off this time so I could go all day. Sometimes I just go at 1pm after work. I was quite pleased with myself as I had one card almost completely prepared and one fairly prepared. I also took some beer mats to cover as I wanted to make a hanging with Oliver's name on it. Unfortunately I didn't take any papers for this but I managed to find some there so they are covered on both sides at least. I still have to cut out the letters of his name so maybe I'll get my Cricut out tomorrow! By then it was 2.30 and to my horror I discovered I had nothing else to do. My cards just needed little final touches as I did not take any card candy or jewels or flowers with me. I thought I had some House Mouse decoupage in my bag but no it was at home. So I just had a browse around the shop and had a look at some scrapbooking magazines and a coffee till it was time to go. I didn't buy much as I am saving myself for the SECC next Sunday......can't wait! But I did buy a gorgeous new set of MME glittered papers - Penny Lane.

I decided to make a Baby congratulations card to add to the ones I have. I thought lilac and aqua would do for a boy or a girl so that would be handy as whether you have pink or blue it's always the other one you need. My friend gave me the card candy as it is exactly the same colour as my backing card. I have lilac but it is quite pale. The papers are from the lilac patchwork collection from Cuddly Buddly. I printed another sheet of the stripey one this morning but....and there's always a but I realised when I looked at it at the crop that the original was printed on pearlescent paper and the new one was on plain white paper. So I had to finish that this evening. I also added the flowers from Wild Orchid Craftsand aqua! leaves. Not a very good photo unfortunately.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-
House Mouse :- Multi-fold card.
My second card is a thank you card using a "Bear" stamp from Hobby Art Ltd. I love these bears, they are really cute. I've use more paper from the patchwork collection from Cuddly Buddly. I think this is a nice fresh paper and makes a nice simple card. I finished off with some card candy coloured with Promarker to match and another rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I thought this photo was ok until I uploaded it and then realised that it's a bit squint. Too late now though! I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-

Creative Inspirations challenge :- Thank you.

Sassy Designs by Susie :- Lilac and aqua.

Truly Scrumptious :- Sketch.

I think that's all for now. I'm off to check out the entries over at Totally Gorjuss.

See you all tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
