Blinkin eck!! I still havent got my head round this blog malarkie have I... I put the posts on and then when I read what I've written, its all back to front, A... about face and doesn't make any sense! and if it doesn't make any sense to me what on earth will all my ficticious followers make of it? :) I really must make up some more names of avid followers!!! oh well, if you ARE real and on here reading all this garbage, good luck, hope you can make head of tail of it and THANKS FOR DROPPING BY!!
This picture should have been in the previous/next/wherever post but some idiot la la lalala la la put it here in the WRONG place.... now WHO could have done such a stupid thing... hmmmmm!
this is another card for the same girl (Hannah) but not so elaborate, just a little card from my friend Suzi to send to her daughters best friend, I found out after I'd made the other card that her favourite colour is yellow and her fav band is Panadol or something beginning with 'P' ( I'd probably need a couple of Panadol's if I heard the band!!) so the card is covered in a print of the front of the bands album which I'm presuming is called Riot!!!! luckily it sort of lead to a yellowy kind of colour so hopefully that'll go down well too!! I'm also pleased to say that Meggie, (2 of my previous efforts for Suzi) was chuffed to bits with her cards so that made all the effort well worth it!!
Evening all, is there anybody there??? nah didnt think so! so as usual chatting to myself again.. here's a card I did for another young lady approaching 16 and one of her favourite bands is 'Hey Monday' the lead singer is Cassadee (I think, can't remember now) so did a waterfall card in a trifold card but it was too fat to shut (know the feeling!) so had to put a ribbon closure on and it got a bit 'messy' after that! never mind hoping she'll like it anyway, I kinda liked the box best but should have put the ribbon on the pocket on reflection! don't think birthday cards are top of the list for most 16 year olds, isnt it telling us old farts how little we know and how much they DO know!! ah bless their little cotton socks they have so much to learn... hee hee!
Strewth I'm exhausted now! I've made more cards this week than ever, only 4 more to go and then I'm having a break.... ha ha ha ha ASIF!! these two are for a soon to be 16 year old who loves, Pirates of the Carribean, Brittany Spears, Hippo's and Disney stuff so....... 1st card is Brittany in a slider card, and the 2nd is a waterfall book with various pics of all her fav things!! I'm delivering them to the lady who ordered them tomorrow so hope she likes them!! I'll post pics of the waterfall book later cos I've got to nuke some dinner now!!
Heres a pic of the 'card' I did for my daughters birthday in June, I liked the idea of the beads down the front edge of the card and of course as usual got carried away with the whole thing and ended up making a book! it turned out to be another one of my 'projects' and the whole ribbon, bling thing just isnt her, but I'm her mum and entitled to do stuff to annoy her and make her shake her head and roll her eyes..... MOTHERS REVENGE! hee hee I was pleased with the finished product tho, and used some of 3 million beads so thats good innit!!
Helloooooo, have you popped in for a look or am I talking to myself again? ah well never mind! here's a little name card I did for a baby called Reece surpisingly! its just a little something for a friend who's grand daughter just had a baby! I'm definitely getting quicker tho, this one took me an evening which is like warp speed for me!!
Oops, completely muffed this up, trying to update the pics, cos I changed the card below slightly and wanted to swap one picture for another but can't remember how to do it..... Hmmm, must have got in the wrong queue for the 'brains' too!! I'll explain who's who cos if I'm confused you must be too... (like there's anyone our there! oh and by the way, I've done this all back to front again so be patient with me :) Lou is my beautiful daughter, Soph is her friend, Lin is Soph's mum... got it? Great! then I'll continue, in my previous post I showed pics of cards I made for Lin's 60th birthday last week, she then asked me to make a card for a lady who's 104 next week, the lady loves Bingo so hence the 'Bingo' card, couldnt resist a bit of ribbon and bling tho :) she also wanted a card for her friend Steve who's 60 and golf mad, hence the dodgy golf card (not very impressed with this one!!) and Steve's Mum who is 80 the same day as him and loves...... yeah, you got it Frank Sinatra so I made her a card with Bing Crosby on.... ha ha, I bet you had another look to see if I'd done it wrong didn't you???? just pulling yer leg!! well as you can see, nothing spectacular I'm afraid but, I did these 'faster than a speeding bullet' well for me anyway, I did make a nice card which turned into a book for Lou's birthday but haven't posted it yet.... well, must get on I've got loads more to do so thanks for dropping by xx
I changed my mind and put them in the right order just to confuse you :)
