Lizzy's card

Good morning to all my Fellow bloggers I hope the weather is being kind to you all, I haven't been here for a while as I have been trying my hand at other things. I had an email from the lovely people from Virgin Media informing me that from 15th June I will no longer be able to Google using my Ntlworld email, how rude so I now have to set up another email for Google how many more people are going to have this problem?
Today I thought I would share a card I made for my friend Lizzy for her Daughters wedding, usually I'm very critical about my cards but this one I quite like and I also made a box too.

I would like to thank Jodie from Oz for the inspiration for this card
This is where I have been inspired:
(Thursday) - anything goes with a ribbon

Spaced out .........

Good morning I really hope everyone is ok, I have a card to share with you today for my little fella who will be 3 soon and thought it was very fitting I found it in all my card stuff on the computer. This is Taylor he is Planet mad he lives and breathes Planets think he should spend a day with Brian Cox I said to Taylor you'll be going to School soon his reply was yes and I will teach them about the Planets.
He said "the Universe has exploded Nannie"
Now for his card I have only used Stickles and Diamond Glaze on it.

As you can see I have also made the Envelope box for it too, this is where I have been inspired: - anything goes - anything goes - Shaped card - on the fly - anything goes - for the Kids/ anything goes - boys - birthdays - odd card

We have been retreating .............. so to speak

Well my girls and I went to the Crafty Retreat a couple of Sundays ago with Taylor who really enjoyed it I thought I would do a new Plaque for the house. Long ago before we bought the house it was called May Cottage and thought it would be nice to rename it that, I went with an Idea of how I wanted it and did a layout on a black surface for inspiration.

I will get this finished when I have finished practicing painting flowers, these are what the others have produced:
Taylor's planet plate
Grace's hedgehog
Ewan's hedgehog
So as you can see everyone seemed to have fun Ewan and Grace have had theirs glazed and cooked now I will show you what they look like when I pick them up.
