The same .. but different

As these two cards are going on the same mantlepiece they had to be made the same but different! If you know what I mean!!
I'm never too sure about putting bows and ribbons on male cards .. they look OK to me ... but then again my bows are practically famous so a card without a bow just wouldn't be me!!!

Gold and Cream Wedding Card

This is for a couple who are getting married in Iceland in a couple of weeks. Don't know why they bothered wasting their money ... they could have got married in our back garden .. it's covered in frost and absolutely freezing!!!

Used the good old Booktrix board ... don't particularly like making these cards .. find them too time consuming but it was what I was asked for .. so I did as I was told!!

I don't believe this!!!!

Look what happens when I neglect my blog .... I get inundated with awards!!!
So .. without further ado ... I'll do with them what I'm supposed to do ... this could be a long night!! LOL!!

Award No. 1Firstly I'd like to thank Jackie, Val and Sue for this award .. much appreciated.

Award No. 2
This next award was given to me by Sue .. .thanks Sue (again!!!)

Think most people have already received this one before .. but I'd like to pass it on to Jackie ... cos a) I love her blog b) she makes me laugh and c) don't think she's got this one!! LOL!!

Award No. 3
Thanks for this one Jackie ... really appreciated.

I know this one has been around for the last hundred years or so .. and most people will already have it but I'd like to give it to Sue and Val.

And last but not least ...
Award No. 4
Thank you so much Val and Toni

With this award I have to tell you seven interesting things about myself!
They're not particularly interesting but it's the best I could do!

1. I used to drive Ferraris for a living .. and get paid for the privilege!

2. I absolutely love Lee Evans .. he's got to be the funniest man on the planet.

3. My favourite films of all times are Dirty Dancing and Armageddon.

4. I love playing Tomb Raider on the puter (sad or what!!)

5. I love reading and must have over 200 books in my cupboard ... all unread I hasten to add .. cos never have time to read them!

6. I drive a sexy, black BMW ... I had a Porsche before that but swapped it for the BMW!!

7. I'm a Lambrini girl .. and proud of it!!!

I'm not going to award this one to anyone in particular .. I'd just like to award it to everyone who visits my blog and say a big thank you to all of you and especially those who are kind enough to leave comments. It really is appreciated.

Well think that's it ... thanks again everyone and hopefully I may just get to post a card on here eventually!!! LOL!!

Morning Glory

Just love the colour of this card. This is a layout I've used many times in the past and maybe looks a little old hat .. but it's so easy to do.
I used the Romance Board for the scalloped edge and the embossing .... and the morning glory image is from one of Joanna Sheens many brilliant CD's. I just printed it out a few times and then decoupaged it ... and the butterfly peel off is stuck onto a bit of the excess blue card and then cut out.

And another yellow flower

Not sure what this flower is ... nature was never one of my strong points!! .. but whatever it is it's lovely. Some of you might recognise this card cos it's one I made a while ago, but I've not made anything to put on my blog for a bit so thought I'd keep it updated with this one.
