I've finished a card making marathon

This week I have really enjoyed a marathon card making session. A friend of a friends daughter is getting married in May and asked moi to make her wedding invites. I had paced myself well at the beginning and cut the cards to size, folded them, cuttlebugged the fronts, printed the inserts and also the invites were stamped, printed inside and the envelopes addressed. On Thursday evening the brides friends and family met at her Mums house and the finish line was in sight. We all finished off the invites with punches, ribbon and punched corners.
It was a lovely evening and Barbara provided a selection of scones to keep us happy. My problem is I forgot to take a photo of the finish.

This coming week is my babies 18th birthday. I can't believe he's 18 and an inch off 6 foot. This year I've made a few 18th so I thought I post a pic of one I made for a friend of his that started Nursery with him.

Sophie had a hollywood themed party and she loved her card. The lady is from Elusive Images and she is so versatile. I love her in the black and white. I coloured her face and arms with copics after stamping with black and embossing with clear powder. I cut her out and placed her onto the decorated card.
Today I need to make a card for my son. I'm hoping to head off to the shops as I'm wanting fabric to make another bag. I'll post a photo of my first effort later.
Enjoy your Saturday

I love all of those ladies lenda's and they look so good in black and white. Gorgeous card and what a shame we didn't get to see the cards from the marathon session.
