Its been a loooooong day

Carys went off to Winmarleigh Hall this morning. We had to be at school at 5:30 so Carys made sure we were up by 5... She was too excited for words. I know they arrived safely so I hope she has enjoyed the 5 different activities for the rest of the day!

I decided not to try going back to bed and managed to fit a lot in today. Mostly cardmaking actually. the very gorgeous Sue Hyde came round to play. And brought my birthday pressie! Which I have opened as per her request but won't show you until my birthday. But suffice to say - swoon!
I decided to crack open a set of papers and plumped for my new Junkitz celebration papers. Oh my how lush! I also printed out some card templates from CPS and Sketch This: Cards which I found really helpful. I'm not going to match them up now (too tired surprise, surprise) but they are a great idea!
I made 14 cards today. Won't make you endure them all but here are a few faves!

Cupcakes, candle and bunny are all hand cut or assembled (hmm maybe a smaller punch for bun's head next time, but he was a first for me)

I'm really chuffed with my output today - and I have tidied away again. Shock! Right I think it better be beddy byes now!

oh my Lythan !lovely what you've created with the Junkitz pps ! how original ! very versatile these Junkitz pps are !

oh well we can never have enuff pp , hun ! DCWV glittered & embossed stack comes in several sizes - I bought the 8x8 pad - to make cards & 6x12 layouts - I didnt want to buy the 12x12 stack since they cost much more ( being a more childish theme as well and hence less usage I thot- since they can be outgrown ) - so I thot 8x8 was a good compromise ! lol

I think you need to change your blog title to 'One woman card making machine' now! I'm lucky if I can put one card together in a day- let alone 14- and have them look fabulous too!
