Congratulations to the winners of the give away over on the Chocolate Baroque Blog.
Suzee, Paula and Aquarius are in for a real treat these stamps are beautiful.

I was asked to make a Wedding card for a couple and it needed big enough for 25 plus people to sign. I have made many cards using Craftwork cards 8x8 size and they are big enough without being to big to fill.

I cut out the silver and white backing using a frame from Go Kreate. The hearts are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver. I cut around the images, added a gem and used tape to stick one and foam pads for the other. The wording is computer generated. I wanted to keep the card all white so I used the organza dot ribbon.
The stamps are fab for lots of anniversarys, heat emboss in different colours.

Have a lovely Sunday

The wait is finally over

Over the last nine months I've been like an expectant aunty. My friend has been waiting for the birth of her first grand child. They had gone away last weekend and as she predicted there granddaughter was born. Amelia was born on Sunday morning weighing in at 8lb 15ozs and she is gorgeous. Can't wait for a cuddle.

On Friday I couldn't wait to arrive home from work to see how things were getting on with the arrival of the Chocolate Baroque websites. Firstly an online store packed with lots of delicious goodness. Secondly the new community site that allows like minded people to chat, swap ideas and lots more. I've been allowed to show something from one of the new projects we're working on.
I love this stamp set butterflies, birds and flowers.

My hubby bought my a state of the art sewing machine for my birthday and being a true crafter thought what else will it do. So that's how I created the border.
Have a lovely weekend to everyone
