Wedding card and an award from Bubble-Deb :)

Hi there, today I made a vintage style wedding card using quite an oldish {LOL} stamp I have in my collection. The background paper is by Anna Griffin and I used my nesties and some black/white polka dot ribbon and a heart shaped love charm brought to be from America from my friend. I cuttlebugged the bottom with a border embosser.
I was given this award over a week ago from my friend Deb {Bubble-Deb} and sorry Deb it took me so long to get it on my blog :( though I am ever so grateful. I award it right back at Deb {LOL} as she never forgets me :) and I would like all my blogging pals to snag it for themselves too :) :) have a great weekend :) :)

Yipeeeeeee!!! got it sorted :) :) :)

Oh I am soooo happy now :) I got it sorted, looks like it did register after all {phew!!!!} thanks for the comments shouting for "help" :)
So, back to my card for today or should I say this evening :) The patterned cardstock is from Memorybox and the ribbon {which I looove} is from Carolee's creations. I embossed top of card with cuttlebug border and used nesties and embossed the red circle with a mini cuttlebug folder which is like stitches. The cherry bling is from Heidi Swapp which I love and use sparingly , LOL, so if anyone knows where in the uk I can re- purchase some I would be very grateful.
Enjoy the rest of your evening, :) :) hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzz x
Ps I will have a little candy up for grabs before the weekend :)

Christmas dinner menu card

Something a bit different today, A vintage style Christmas card :) This beautiful paper was bought to me from my mum {she often brings me surprises of crafty goodies :) } There was no name on back of it, so im not sure what company makes it, but I think it looks very like Making Memories. It is double sided, so I have used the dotty side for the background and cut out the Christmas dinner menu from the patterned side and matted it up on nestabilities. To finish it off I used some gingham ribbon and 2 buttons.
Have a great day!!! :) :) :) :)
