Sunday Sunday da da dadada...

Another week is over and another about to begin. How did we get to August so fast?! I want to know who stole May, June and July lol. I read on Jeanie's blog on Friday that there are only 148 days till Christmas....Holy did that happen??? Is this what happens when you hit 30....time just flies by? Thirty for me was 16 years ago but it feels just like yesterday {sigh}.
Anywho, I managed to get one card and my huge pile of ironing done yesterday woot woot. That's not nearly enough cards as far as I'm concerned and something's got to be done about it. Actually...something IS going to be done about it but I have an important call to make first and hopefully tomorrow I'll let you in on it :-D
Ok, here's my masterpiece from yesterday. Pierce asked me to make a card for a colleague who's wife had twin girls a few weeks ago. I dug out one of my favourite SU! sets and went to work....
This set is called Baby Firsts and there are 8 stamps in the set...I just stamped this one aren't I clever! The pp is Lasting Impressions which I sewed onto some Bazzill then stuck down on a white card blank. For a bit of detail I put Swarovski crystals on each corner around the image. I wanted to do something a bit different with the ribbon so went for the
wrap-around-the-corner-then-tie-in-a-bow look lol. I'm not sure I did the right thing putting crytals on the bottom part of the bow but it's too late now! I hope they like it.

I coloured the images with my Pro Markers and Copics and cut it out with my Nestabilities.
There was a slight delay with the stamps (my fault) but they should be here on Tuesday and I'll be mailing them out as soon as :-D All competition winners are accounted for and have chosen their stamps so now I have to think of something for the next one!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Thanks for stopping by :-D
Catch ya later x

Hi kerry - awww they are cuties as i am sure are the new babies in real life.
The parents will love the card - and a little bling on a girly card - no matter how old they are is always ok!
I got my cleaning done this morning 0 so a pile of ironing awaits ..
The sun is actually shining here today - so washing on the line ... and more ironing!

Lovely card Kerry!! I'm sure they'll be very very pleased with it and I agree with Roni, a girl needs sparkle! x

Hi Kerry, what a cute card! Glad you got all that ironing done. I was wondering the same about where the year has gone, unbelievable, lol.

Lovely card, I'm sure they'll love it! If it was me looking to make a card for twins I'd have gone looking for a new stamp... which either makes me a bit daft, or a crafty shopaholic... and I have no idea which is worse! Sue xx
