Its Oh so Quiet!

Hi all, hope you have had a great week and are not too wet! Hubby and the kids have gone away for a boys weekend which has left me time to make some cards, have my friends round for a takeaway and of course do housework! Its very quiet here!

Like most of you I am still chipping away at the Christmas Card list and have made this one with a stamp called Fantasy from Penny Black.



I really like the colours on this one and the tree has been heat embossed with some black embossing powder with glitter the backing paper is from Pink Petticoat.




I have also been asked to make some cards for my friend who has a long list of birthdays in the coming months, she loves to come round and pick out the papers and embelishments. This card is for her hubby for his birthday.



I have also made a card for her parents to give to her sister an they wanted gold colouring.



The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, the flower was cream but I coloured it with a Sandstone pro-marker and then added glamour dust and the sentiment was done on the computer. The final card was for her work collegue who is celebrating her 60th and the request was for pink.




The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, I did the sentiment and number on the computer and I added a little bit of background paper which I ran through the cuttlebug and added some bling at the bottom.

I'm learning loads on my photography course and our homework last week was to photograph fireworks. It was really hard but I got a few good shots including this one of a Catherine Wheel.




I haven't photoshoped it yet but think that I can bring the colour out a bit more. That's our class for next week!

Finally a request for help, I have been asked by my friend to make some invitations for her son's Bar Mitzvah next year and we sat down with a glass of wine last night and tried to make a start. I am not jewish and my friend although Jewish, claims to have no idea about what is supposed to go in the invitation, does anyone have any experience or examples of Bar Mitzvah invitations? Any suggestions will be gratefully received!

Have a wonderful week!

Hmmmmmmm, that is a tough one, bar mitzvah invites? I'm sorry, nothing is coming to mind AT ALL. I love what you've done with the PB tree, cute colours and pearls. Where have you found fireworks to photograph this time of year?? It looks wonderful, nevertheless!! I hope you enjoyed your free time :)
