Sending smiles across the miles commission work.
Afternoon everyone hope your well, and had a nice weekend? 
The weather was lovely here and had the great pleasure of seeing another 
one of my commissioned cards go live on the Cardmaking and Papercraft website blog. 
I was commissioned to make a card that could be sent to a love one or friend who lives overseas.
At first I thought what can I use for this then in my stash I found this super topper and card set from Hunkydory range. I went for pink and blue tones, made mini bunting to write my message 'love' in,
and used glitter glue on the waves to make them sparkle.
All the product list and instructions can be found on the Cardmaking and papercraft blog. Click on link above. 

After I had make my easel card I came across this Penny black stamp and thought this could make a 
more masculine themed card that would be good to send to a male relative or male friend.
I used first edition papers, some peel of letter and die cut shapes.

I would love to enter this card into following challenges:
The Ribbon girl blog May colour challenge: Aqua- closes 23rd May
Creative Fingers blog challenge- anything goes- closes 21st May
Penny black and more challenge blog- dies and punches- closes 1st June

My new look craft room bunting.
Hi everyone thought today I would share with you my new craft room bunting I have made using my scan n cut machine. 
I used the heat n bond on the back of some fabrics I brought from hobbycraft and used the machine to cut my letters and the triangle shapes out. 
I then sewed two of the triangles together and then used the heat n bond on the back of the letters to stick them onto the triangles.
I then sewed the whole alot onto some wide black ribbon and found so super cute mini tassels to finish my bunting off.
I was really please with my finished project hope you like it too. 

Thanks for stopping by
