Two for Saturday

I'm treating you to two cards today, I've been so busy that I've not had much time to post so am making an effort today. The first card is for a friend in work who asked for several cards to be done but this one was wanted urgently for obvious reasons.
I have never made an acceptance card before but MCS came to the rescue, the invitation had hearts on it and one of those was pink so when I found this image I didn't have to do anything to it as I thought it was perfect. I just added a bit of ribbon and some pearls then cut a couple of hearts on the cuttlebug and put them through the swiss dots embossing folder and it was done. Simple but I was pleased with it and so was my friend.
The wedding card is one I've made for one of the guys in work, he was so excited about his upcoming wedding which was so lovely to see. Once again the background was done with MCS and here I have tried out the embossing and I think it's quite effective, in fact I showed it to one of my workmates and she ran her fingers over it expecting to feel texture. The corners were cut on the cuttlebug and the image I have used several times and it's from Mo's Digital Pencil and th gems were plain but coloured with a gold coloured promarker.

Music and movement - CD Sunday

Good morning everyone and as it's Sunday it's time for another challenge from us over at CD Sunday, now last week you did us proud with more entries than we've had before so I do hope you'll join in again this week.

This week it's music and movement and the image above was one of the first things that came into my head, I love the little girl following the teacher. This image and the backing paper designed to go with it comes from the Joanna Sheen cd, A Card Makers Year. This cd is broken up into months so you will always find an image suitable for the time of year you are working in but like the above image they can be used at any time, if you want to use the image I've used you will find it in September.

We are getting closer to the start of our sponsored challenges and I have to say there are some very generous people out there so you will just have to keep watching and joining in with us, it's just a pity I can't enter! Hope you have fun with our challenge this week and I am looking forward to visiting all your blogs to see your wonderful creations and don't forget you don't need to use a lot from a cd to join in with us but if you use something small like an embellishment please give credit to the cd it comes from, thanks.
