My next card was made for a lovely couple we know who recently became engaged. I used the champagne glasses from the Cheers to You stamp set and coloured them with versamark before topping with Dazzling Diamonds.
They are layered up using the stunning Bride designer paper and finished with a white satin ribbon. I am very pleased with how this card came out.
I have had a request by one of my lovely class ladies for next month. She wants a good card for a man - and I am very man card challenged! So if you have a good one on your blog - leave me a message I will come and get some inspiration. You could be famous around here next month!
Thanks for visiting.

I have woken up full of cold this morning and am feeling a bit sorry for myself. I spent the morning making 30 swaps for our regional Stampin' Up! training and now am sitting on the sofa in the warm.
As promised, I have another Easter Chick for you, made at our shoebox swap - this time designed by the lovely Helen. You can find her blog here. She had us use Certainly Celery, Whisper White and Barely Banana for this card - I love the colour combination.
This month I am giving all my class attendees homework! :) At our recent team training day, Amanda taught us how to make this oh so cute Easter Bunny. I love punch art and think this bunny is sooo sweet so I decided to do everyone a bonus project pack to take home.
As not everyone has all the punches to make the Easter Bunny, I spent an evening surrounded by punches and cardstock punching out all the elements to make him. I also did the sponge daubing around the edges. DH laughed at me, but I knew everyone would love this little bonus project.
Finally I made paper envelopes with an example and instructions printed. I look forward to seeing what they make!
Hope you like the projects and thanks as always for your messages. They make my day!
