Funky Friday #51

This weeks challenge on the Funky Friday Challenge blog is anything but a card, I made these little gift bag's for my daughter to take to school It's her birthday next week so I need to make about 50 of these and need a big supply of mini eggs.

I loved last weeks colours so much that I decided to use them again this week, For this bag I used Small cellaphane bags they come in a pack of 50 for £2.75 from Stampin' Up!, (note to self must buy more), Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana and Close to cocoa card, chocolate chip and versamark ink and 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Heat and stick powder, dazzling diamonds glitter, Spot on jumbo wheel, Oval all Stamp set, Oval punch and scallop oval punch which you can get for the reduced price of £10 if you buy the co-ordinating stamp set but only if you order it in March.

Happy Mother's Day

This is my Mum's mother's day card, I had to wait to post it till now or she would see it on facebook, as my blog updates on facebook, yes my Mum goes on Facebook....a lot, lol.

As you can see I didn't stop at decorating the outside the inside was pretty too.
For this card I used Pretty in pink, blush blossom and whisper white card, Chocolate chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, tea and crumpet designer paper (I know again), blush blossom, pretty in pink and versamark ink, clear embossing powder, heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds glitter and the scallop edge punch. The stamp I used were all from Stampin' Up! I used Occasional greetings for the sentiment inside the card, pocket silhouettes for the viney flowers and School Serif Alphabet for the word Mum. I used the emboss resist tecnique for this card hopefully soon I'll get a tutorial on my tutorial blog for that one too, but can't see it happening within the next week or 2 as they're going to be busy one's.
