A 40th Anniversary and a Fabby NEW TOY!

Evening all!

Apparently it was a really warm day today??? Not that I noticed while I was converting my car 'James Bond style' into a boat this morning to get to work!

Thought I was going to crash at one point when a truck driving in the other direction drove through a swimming pool on the road and drowned my car - couldn't see a thing in front of me! Lucky I am still here and praying for the sun to please make an appearance next week when I'm off on holiday!

One of my friends was having a wee wander through Facebook a wee while ago and came across my craft album, she then decided that I'm just the person she was looking for and I have so far made 6 cards for her. I love all my crafting and making cards, but making them to order for other people makes me sweat buckets! I suppose if they don't like them you can always use them in the future for someone else though ey?!

Fortunately, she has loved everything I have made her so far. It's her Mum and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary on 17th of this month and I made this wee card for her:



I didn't use any PP as I wanted the red for the ruby wedding to stand out quite a bit, and I also couldn't really find a lot of red PP to play with :o(. If anyone knows where I can get some nice red papers PLEASE let me know...


The stamp is from LOTV, coloured with my PMs, the little bell charm is from Mei Flower and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. CS cut with Nesties Labels - like this one as it is quite similar in shape to the card I have used.
Now - let me introduce you to my new toy. It's a FOILING MACHINE. Yes - no more peel off greetings for me! Billy (lovely hubby person) got me a Laser Printer for my chrimbo (as you need to print the greeting on one for the foil to stick to it). You print your greeting, make sure your Foil It machine is hot enough (has a wee ready light - so really 'dummy proof'), stick your greeting through the machine with the foil colour of your choice wrapped in a wee bitty of paper (so the foil sticks to card and not machine) - and it come out all supercalafragilistic at the other end!!! Doesn't it look fabby-do! I love it. Want to foil everything now! Foil comes in loads of different colours too. Wait til you see the Christening card I made with the pink foil for the greetings - see - it's even made me like PINK!!! Love it, love it! If you'd like to be the lucky owner of this fabglorious machine you can buy one from Patsy May HERE, and postage is just a wee £1 at the moment for a limited time! All the foil is there too - go on - you know you wanna :oD


Also foiled this wee sentiment! Told you - no stopping me now - you can even print digi images or any image really and then use one of the colours (or more than one if you like) to make it all shiney, shiney!!

Do you think I really like my new machine then??

I'd like to enter the above wee card into the following challenges:

Oldie but a Goodie - Wedding or Anniversary
Craft Your Passions - Challenge #52 Anything Goes

I'm away to have a HUGE M & S Cookie (mmmmm) and that lovely hubby person I was talking about earlier is making me a nice cuppa to go with it - might even give him one ;o)
