ABC Challenge-C is for...


      This weeks ABC challenge is C is for... child's card. 
I made a couple of simple cards up with some stamped images I have had for a while.
I thought I had better start using up some of the odds & ends I have sitting around in the 'sad room'!! 

The images have been water coloured & shimmer water coloured; the fish jar has been coated with glossy accents & raised on foam pads. The boots have been raised on foam pads also.

The stamp is Francoise Reed's- Big Catch; papers are Paperfever-'Luv Bugs'; Swiss Dots Bazzill card, Bazzill Bling; other papers & ribbon from stash; coloured brads; sentiments from Craftwork Cards and 'Birthday' Cuttlebug embossing sleeve used also.

I'm going to try to do as many challenges as I can this weekend as I have GOT to concentrate on making these wedding invitations up by the end of March for the girl at work. She is getting married in June & also wants me to make up the name place cards, favour boxes & possibly menu holders & table plan!! I have everything I need now to start the invites, apart from the printed insert, which I am going to get done professionally by a printer- I'm not going to risk doing them on our printer as the quality is not good enough for something so important!!

I hope it's going to be worth all the hard work- I made up 8 different samples for her to look at, hoping she would choose the easiest- Ha!  She chose the most time consuming one! That'll teach me to give so much of a choice another time (if there is another time!!).
Anyway, might have time to make up another card, before its time to hit the pillow!
Take care.. Teresa xx

These are so cool, great little men cards. I have three little nephews who would love to get one of these. Hope the invitations are going to plan, time consuming but worth it. They are beautiful, she will be so pleased with what you have done. xxxxx

I love these cards Teresa!!! thanks for blabbing about my Candy!
I have done quite a few sets of Wedding invites and know how daunting they can seem, but once you get into the flow it'll be fine!! Good Luck!
