Finished cards

Ok, so yesterday I said I may not have time to blog and here I am again!

I made both Lisa and Sally's stitching into cards tonight and I was so pleased with how they turned out I felt I had to share them with you.
For my friend Lisa I did another alphabet initial, a letter L. This one has a yellow daffodil on, I found a nice green and pink striped backing paper and mounted the L on that and used a 5" square card.

For my cousin Sally I used a cream 6" x 4" card and mounted the cup cake on a marbled pink backing paper then placed it off centre with some cream organza ribbon down the left hand side.

I think both of them will like their cards but I have to wait until the end of August to send them. At least I won't have a last minute rush on these.
I am still going to be busy at the weekend so can't see me doing much stitching or blogging. We have now been asked to a barbeque on Sunday evening at one of Stuart's work friends. If I am lucky I will have some time to stitch on Saturday evening as my friends will only stay until tea. I have been working on my Family Tree but I know I won't have progressed as much this week as the first time around on my rota. But then any progress is better than nothing.

Hope you all have a good weekend.
