A Little Creativity to Tie Me Over...

Been doing a little 'workin' for the weekend'
on some cards this week.
I have a wedding to attend in which my daughter
is a bridesmaid (for the first time) and her son,
my 7 year old grandson, is the ring bearer.
I can hardly wait!
So I am pretty sure that my weekend will be nearly
gone before I can get back to a little creative time.

So here are some cards I made
for a couple of challenges.

This first one is for the
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #61
over at Hope Stamps Eternal.

Monochrome and polka dots
and above all else, cupcakes  : )

This next card is for two challenges....

Both of these challenges focus on the
sentiment for this card.
I took a 'rub-on' embellishment
from Rhonna Farrer then:
'aged' it with ink, 
added rhinestones to the letters
and added ribbon tabs.

Hope you enjoyed these two little creations.
I will have a couple more to share with you tomorrow.

Before I's what I would LOVE to know...
Please leave a comment and let me know.
It's always fun to know what you are up to...
it may be paper crafting, attending a graduation party,
leaving on vacation or planting a garden...
There's creativity in

Great cards!! Hope the wedding goes well. Am off out this morning to Kew Gardens, so more flower photos for my other blog tomorrow!! It's going to be really hot here today which I don't like, so the rest of the day will be spent trying to cool down!! Have a great weekend.
