Wedding Card

On Saturday I went to my friends wedding. She looked absolutely beautiful, the bridesmaids were pretty and the groomsman scrubbed up ok also.  At their reception they had cupcakes as part of their wedding cake, so this is where I got the theme for my card. I think the card turned out pretty good.

I have signed up for a free two week trial with Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing On Line (SUDSOL).  Last night after my card class at Fiona Platzer's, I finally managed to find time to start exploring what SUDSOL has to offer. One of the things that caught my eye was their Stamp Set Challenge #23.  This is where a stamp set or theme is set and you create something based on that. This weeks challenge is using the Happy Moments stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  I decided I wanted to have a go. I had recently purchased a card from a local newsagency as I liked the idea and was planning at some point to use it as inspiration. Well, last night that inspiration came. I made four cards, all the same with the exception of colour combinations. I'm really happy with my designs for SSC#23. Below is the card that inspired me plus my four colour combinations:

Fiona Platzer's Card Class - Thu 04 March 2010

Last night I went to Fiona Platzer's card class. We made three cards. One card was originally CASED from Nicki Tidbold and the other two were designed by Fiona Platzer. I really enjoyed this class, even tried a new technique, which I really want to do again.  For more details on Fiona and her card classes, click on her name above and it will take you to her blog.  Here are the cards we made:

Cards, Cards, Cards

Those of you who follow my blog know that I set myself a challenge of a card a day. Well, as you can see from the date of my last post, 4 January 2010, I have not exactly been meeting that challenge. There have been a number of reasons, but those reasons are now no longer valid, in my mind, so it is time to get my mojo revved up again and get creating.

I have made several cards since my last post. A birthday card for my mum and I did a one-on-one class with a work colleague, which resulted in me doing up a proto Valentine's Day card, as this is what she wanted to make. I have also made some cards at my Stampin' Up Demo training, but unfortunately I do not have these to post.

Below is the birthday card for my mum, I just love the Never-ending Flip card and below that is the Valentine's Day card.
