Another Weekend Over :(

Why, oh why, do the weekends go so quickly - in fact why does time go so quickly now? It's bad enough that Christmas comes around so quickly - although to tell the truth I'm a proper Christmas freak so that's a good thing - but the weekend..........................NO! I want to be off work for at least enough time to get the orders I get from there done!

This weekend I've done a 'secret' Wedding Card and a Wedding Memories Book to match - but obviously being a 'secret' Wedding I wont be showing you till it's happened!!!

I've also done a couple of birthday cards for the 70th Birthdays of a work colleagues mum and her twin sister.  One was made using a photo so I'm not going to be able to find any challenges for that one - I REALLY wish there were some challenge blogs for photos :(
The other I decided to use a Penny Black Stickeroo - so got at least one challenge out of it :)

Here's the first.....

Card 1

I've used my faithful Gemstones card, some WOC Roses and Lace and a gorgeous pin.

And this is for her twin sister.......

Card 2

This is using the same Gemstones, DCWV 'All Dressed Up' paper stack, velvet ribbon, 3 Pearl Brads and a Penny Black Stickeroo.

Challenges I'd like to enter card 2 into (if you know of any I can enter the 1st in please shout!)..........

Penny Black Saturday - Sketch

Simon Says Challenge - Recipe
3 types of embellishments - Brads, Ribbon & Computer Generated Sentiment, 2 papers & 1 image

Think I've managed to find one for card 1 - I popped over to ABC and looked though their participants and they don't all use stamps etc, so I'm going to have a go! If I'm wrong ABC please let me know :)
