Not so lazy Monday

Hi everyone,
hope you have all had a great Easter weekend and that the Easter Bunny brought you loads of eggs. Just a quickie share from me for today as have been rushing around a bit today but can't complain as other than today have had a very lazy crafty weekend. Got quite a few cards made and also actually completed my first Christmas card of the year but the share I have for you is a very simple card that I have made for a work colleague for a Christening. I don't really have any stamps etc. that are Christening related so I hope she is ok with what I managed to come up with
 I have literally just used some blue pearlised card which I have run through an embossing folder on my Cuttlebug, matted and layered this onto some silver mirror card and more of the same blue card, added some ribbon as a wrap and a bow and the sentiment is alphabet peel offs. I have also made another card with an image on it so she has got a choice but I will share that with you again.
That's it from me for tonight going to make the most of what hours are left before bedtime as work tomorrow.

No matter how hard I try to post more often or make more cards time always seems to be against me so here it is the weekend again and you have both a post and a card. Regarding the cards I make I never seem to be able to do a quick card they always take me a minimum of two hours and quite often double that, don't think I'll ever make my fortune crafting. But hey ho who cares it is how I chill and I enjoy playing with paper, card, glitter and glue even if it means the surface of the dining table never sees light of day lol.
So here is my share for this weekend

The image is Lili of the Valley 'Bunny Cupcakes' which I have coloured with ProMarkers added a little glamour dust to the icing and glossy accents on the bunnies noses, feet and the cherries on top of the cupcakes. The yellow card stock that I have used for matting is from my stash as is the ribbon (this is the very last length of this ribbon :( I will have to go on the hunt for more), and the little self-adhesive pearls. The papers are all from Nitwit Designs not sure which collection but I love all their papers and buy a few more each month. The sketch is an old one that I have only partially followed as when I started to layer the card the balance wasn't quite right so I moved where the sentiment was to go. Although there is no picture of the inside of the card I always decorate these as well to mirror the layering on the front.
So that is it from me for now I am going to get another make in today before I have to stop to prepare tea, the weather here today is lovely and sunny again although a little chilly but was watching the weather forecast earlier and they have forecast snow for Monday and Tuesday so will have to wait and see.
