Thank Heavens for Publisher!

Hi all, I hope that you have all had a great weekend!  As it was Mothers Day on Sunday hubby offered to take Olly to a science party that he was invited to by one of his school friend's. I thought that I would make him a card with a science theme.

I have only just worked out that you don't need a fancy photo/graphics package to make a digital card. I do have a photo/graphics package, but I don't really know how to use it and the instruction book is massive so I made this in Microsoft Publisher which was really easy!

I bought a robot download kit from 2 Peas in a Bucket and decoupaged the robot and the speech box. The background paper is bolts from the same range of papers by Jen Allyson and mounted onto mirror card. I then made a little charm with a spanner for all those bolts, a star and some beads and attached this to the card. I printed an envelope with his name and a robot too.

It was also my dear friend Jo's birthday on the weekend and I know she likes butterflies so I made her this card.

The good old X-Cut butterfly punch came out again and I mounted this onto some pretty indian papers and added ribbon and some bling. I printed a pink wash on the card from a download from Pink Petticoat. I hope she likes it!

I have a busy week ahead as I am looking after Jo's horse this week and am really looking forward to it. It is also my last photography class this week as well as a scrapbooking crop on Friday. I am off to do a bit of cleaning now while I have the chance!

Have a fantastic week!

Your week sounds good. Hpe the weather stays good for the horsey stuff! Love the cards, love the way you imply that Publisher is easy to use too - I haven't tried, but kinda think you may be optimistic on my behalf!!
