Normal Service Resumed (sort of)

Hi Bloggers,
Well my internet dongle thingy still isn't working so still no net access at home, but I managed some crafty time last night and came up with this. I also found my chain - while looking for a charm for this card. Isn't that always the way? Lol

My card is for my friend Lindsay and her hubby James who have just welcomed the arrival of baby Beau Alexander, he's absolutely beautiful and adored by his 3 big sisters Freya, Annabelle and Darcy!

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Sketch & Stash #42: layout plus "new, never used or neglected stash" the charm on the front of this card is my never used aspect of the challenge. http://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/2010/08/sketch-n-stash-challenge-42.html

Cupcake Challenge #105: "blue & green" http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/2010/08/challenge-105-blue-and-green.html

Forever Friends: "easel card"

Wild Orchid #4: "make it sparkle"

Phew! Loads of challenges with this one so fingers crossed there's a bit of success somewhere :o) Well I'm off tomorrow so hopefully I can get a bit more done then too. Hope the sun is shining wherever you are - it is here today but we're expecting a downpour!

  19. Hi Hayley....

    sorry it took me so long to get back to you with the info on my Crazy4Challenges wedding card......real life is interupting my stamping life...IYKWIM.....anyhooooooo

    the stamp I used is by A Muse Stamps......the lattice background stamp is by Cornish Heritage Farms, but they closed down recently, but you might be able to find it somewhere.....those were the only stamps used....

    hope that answers your questions....and again...I apologize that it took me this long to get back to you



Thank you for your comment, it's always good to know what people think of my adventures and crafty stuff :o)
