Back to life !!!!

Hello everybody,

I haven't done a lot of crafting since a while. Why? Don't really know. It might be weird to some of you, but even if she is bording all year long, I think I miss seeing my daughter. Therefore I have no mojo at all....But it's my mother's birthday in a few days, and my bosses's son is getting married and they are leaving France in 4 days, so had to put my mojo cap on....

Also, I haven't manage to resist using my new Spectrum.... So here are a few cards I have made in the past few days.

I made this one for my Mum's birthday, but she phones me on Monday and cried on phone as she miss us too much. So I haven't resist and sent it to her now. Hopefully I didn't put any sentiment on it....Lol!!! And now I have to create her a new one....To make the card, I have used the vintage digi of "be the Rose" set from TLC, wich I have cut with my GC Nestability. I have put a border using my "Parisian accent" from Spellbinders, and so I can write on it, did the "negative" colours. To finish the card I have put a few roses I have found in a "discount shop" here (sort of £1 shop)

One of my bosses' son is getting married in about a month. He is a very nice lad and always been treating me nicely and not like his "slave", and his future wife is from Dave's area and has, also, been very nice with me everytime I have seen her. So, I have decided to make them a card and bought them a little something.

I have made a card in their wedding suit colours. For the outside, I have used a Kenny K digi stamp and I have coloured it with my new Spectrum pens. I have cut the stamp and the under card with my GC Nestabilities. I have then finished the card with some ribbon, I have bought at the NEC last year from Fantastic Ribbons, and add 3 purple buttons. For the inside, I have used my "Heart Circles" Nestabilities Dies from Spellbinders and the sentiment is from TLC  "Be is for Bride.                                                          
I have decided to enter this card in the following challenge: cute card thursday , which is "wedding"                       

The last card I made is a "small" card, only 10X10cm². I have used "Vintage Ornate Add ons" from TLC. I have coloured it with my Spectrum and used some scrapbooking papers, in the sort of same colour than the spectrum pens i have used, to put under the stamp. Everything has been cut in the same shape with my GC. I haven't put any sentiment as I have no clue
for which occasion it is.

That's all the cards I have made for the moment. I have one which is began  for a friend and I have to finish it for Saturday...So will be back soon...Lol!!!!
