Love on St. Valentine’s Day

Forever Friends is such a sweet brand.  I remember them being introduced in the early 90s. I have used Docrafts products to make this card on a black card blank.

Happy St. Valentine’s Day to you all. ❤

2 Hearts

I have used Papermania’s Midnight Blush capsule to make today’s card and turned it into a valentine’s card using some red mirror card and two glitter hearts.

For your wedding

I have made ths card ofr my cousin’s wedding , which will take place next week.  I took a shaped 8 x 8 card blank and ran it through a Tattered Lace embossing folder and used green micro gems to highlight the lattice.  Spellbinders dies were then used to cut a greeting that was made on the computer.

    My sister got married yesterday

    I write this blog post with a big smile on my face.

    My sister got married yesterday and I made the dress. I bought a pattern and adjusted it as well as sizing it up.

    The fabric used was a blush lace and I love the way the dress looks almost antique.  It is lined with a coffee coloured lightweight jersey.
