Before I start with the cards I would just like to thank you for the lovely comments you made about Sian and her dress. You might have guessed that I would shed another tear but she looks so beautiful. The date is now certain - 27 May 2011, Ladies Pavillion, Central Park, New York. It is going to be wonderful.
The anti-inflammatories are making my tummy roil and I feel as if I'm going to throw up but the good news is the pain in my knee has reduced. Gungy finger feels great too. I have been crafting steadily as I find this a good distraction from whatever symptom is uppermost.
I love this little kitty on her cushion from the Paper Shelter. Her collar is made of German Glass Glitter as is the edge of the circular, computer generated sentiment. The backing paper is Summer Driggs Angel Mother Red Paper on photo paper and it is matted onto red cardstock. The lace, red ribbon, red rose, gems and the brad in the sentiment are from my stash. I tried to run my sentiment of on red cardstock but it was not very crisp so I coloured up one on white card. The characters are much sharper even if the colouring is not even. I have also entered this card into Chrissieanns Animal Card Challenge on Docrafts as well as The Paper Shelter Challenge #2.
The digital stamp, bees and the sentiment are from the Help for Katie Pack 2 and called Honey Bear by D2D. They are available to buy at the Help for Katie blogsite for which there is a link in my sidebar. The two orange backing papers are from the Summer Driggs Dreamsicle set. This same card was used to mount the ribbon and the sentiment and to make the faux photo corners. Promarkers were used to colour up the image and the bees; the layout is Clare Curds. The ribbon is from my stash and the gems are from Anita's Gem Wheel. As well as the Paper Romance Challenge #39 I am entering this in the Clare Curd Sketch Challenge on Docrafts.
I'm off to get ready to go out to lunch at Fir Tree with my Mum. I don't feel much like eating but Mum doesn't get out unless one of us takes her and both of us look forward to our treats so I will go easy on my tummy. Cheerio for now,
