The beginning of a journey..

Another commission.  I'm always amazed how varied the cards I get commissions for are.  This one is for a gentleman who is going into a retreat/monastary.  The usual 'good luck' or 'on your new job' etc just didn't seem to fit so we brainstormed and came out with this.  I waned to keep it fairly simple so printed a picture of a woodland walk onto vellum and mounted it onto white that has been through the cuttlebug embossing folders first.

50th Anniversary

Not of a wedding but as a lay preacher!  This is for an aquaintance of my Dad - ordered from a very very long standing family friend Vera.  My dad was apprenticed to Vera's husband Jack.  The photo is from a CD my mum has, so not sure which as she has so many!  I added a bit of flowersoft to the flowers and diamond glaze to the windows.  Computer generated text mounted on ovals cut from nesties.

Ta for coming back again!  See you soon!

See! Told you I wouldn't leave it so long!  OK, if all goes well I cheated and have set this to post at a future date!.

This is a couple of cards I had a commission for.  These girls were leaving our school to move to one closer to their future secondary school.  Both Eilidh and Erin will be missed lots!

Im my usual manner I can't remember the paper - I do know it was a pad.  The centre strip has wee gems in the flower centres.  The picture is from a cute download from Digi Scrap Kits.  I added their names to suit using Panitshop Pro.

Ok, OK - I lost my way!

Long time no see!  I have no excuse - I let life got in the way of me updating!  I thought it was time to come back and update you with some more inspiration!  I have been busy with Easter, school, Brownies, dance costumes - the usual for me!

Then this weekend it was confirmation and first communion.  Although I had no children taking part I did have a few commissions for things and cards.  Let me show you the cards.  As you can see these are for the same boy.  It took a few puzzling moments to work out how I could make them look different using the same wording and stamped image.  I think I managed it.

Both are A5 size, using computer generated text and a dove from SU's mixed blessings set.  The small strip of patterned paper is aslo SU.

I hope you like them.  I promise not lo leave it so long next time!!
