A couple of cards and Eden project

Hi all, hope you all are well. I have been busy entertaining as my mum who came down from Slough and middle son come up from Plymouth for a visit and catch up so craft room became bed room.
Anyway these are two cards I made on the day before they came but not had a chance to blog.

Used my distress markers to colour in the stamp from Stampin Up 'you are loved' set. Labels 8 nesties and Stampin up embosslits 'beautiful wings' die. Used the Couture Creations 'bouquet' embossing folder on card from stash and added some pearls to the wings.

Stamped cupcake in different memento dewdrop inks in a row and stamped greeting below. I was naughty and cut the greeting and cake apart so could be more versatile and then stamped my own background. Added ribbon and gems from stash.

We all went to the Eden Project on the Friday and though it started off misty and wet the sun soon came out and had a lovely day.

It was so warm in the tropical Biomes that we were melting but a amazing array of plants and so many butterflies.

And can you spot the lizard?

And the flowers were absolutely gorgeous.

  12. Lovely cards Kay and I think it was a good move to cut the greeting from the cupcake design, those cupcakes will work for numerous things. Great photos of the Eden project too... looks very green and lush.
