More of the same

Good evening to you all.  I have not had a chance to post for ages as I have been making one card after another and all nearly the same style.  That was the reason for not posting on my blog as I did not think you would want to see the same card with some variations and different colours.  My mother attends a small Bingo Club on a Tuesday and someone had seen a Mother's day card I made and wanted one, well it snowballed and I had orders, some in blue, lilac and yellow.  Then word got round to her Good Companions Club (a wee social club for over 65's) and more orders followed.  I have tried to vary them as much as possible but there is only so far you can go.  I have another one to make for a 60th birthday this week and have been asked for more.

I really want to make something different now but feel I must complete my orders before I attempt anything different.

I have been able to browse through your blogs and have been amazed at the talent out there.  There is so much I want to try and some day I will get round to doing it all.

Here is my latest card and box, sorry the photo is not up to much, the sun was shining and I got a bit of shadow on the card

The card is 8 x 8
Card is from my stash
Spellbinders dies: Grand Decorative Circles, Floral Ovals and foliage
Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Garden Lattice Folder
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
The ribbon, pearls and butterfly from stash
Sentiment from Kanban
Box from Stella Crafts (a lot easier then cutting out myself, lazy I know)
Well time for bed I think, I have been cutting out the elements for my next card and feel my right arm is ready to fall off but I have a solution.  My hubby has taken pity on me and is sharing the cost of an Ebosser machine which I believe will make life easier in a way.  I have ordered it from Oyster Stamps as they were the cheapest but there is a 2-3 week delivery but I can wait.
Take care you all, I hope it warms up soon.

  3. Hi Wilma really pretty card and I know what you mean I bought a lovely tattered lace die and made a 60th Diamond Anniversary card with it and I've had lots of orders lol and its hard to try and vary the styles..huggles hun sweet dreams Sue xxx

  4. Stunning card and box Wilma. I'm very much into CAS cards at the moment but I love to see the beautiful cards that other people are making. Sometimes just for a change I like to use my lovely embellishments and dies. It's good to do something different so I can sympathise with you getting fed up making a lot of similar cards. But as Pam says maybe the pennies help lol!
