Wedding card

Another card that I made for my cousin. Not for the same one though. This time I made a wedding card for my dear cousin. She was a such a beatiful bride!

On the inside it looked like this, before my mum attached a poem (inside the oval).

I also stamped a nice picture of hearts growing on pots inside the card. I stamped it with clear ink which I embossed with silver embossingpowder. I like this card a lot :)

Card for my cousin

My mum asked me to make a card for my cousin's Confirmation. I had no idea what kind of card I should make and I didn't have anything religious that I could use for it.. So I decided to make a card with flowers as those are good for anything :) Colours suit for a guy and it's not too colourful. Me likes :) Mum liked too, don't know about the cousin lol

I should go through the pics I took during our trip to see those two churches and shopping trip on Ikea and Ideapark. I have been lazy.. I've been thinking about stitching a lot though even though I haven't stitched :D I would LOVE to get the Lizzie Kate Mystery sampler.. I have seen how the part one looks and I like it.

I have also made couple small designs myself. I need to re-check the colours and stitch it to see if it's any good. Not yet though, I need to finish four CJC-pieces! No, I didn't forget that ;)

I should buy white evenweave (Jobelan, mostly) so I could do some dyeing again. I bought dark colour as I would like to dye a piece for Mirabilia's Archangel and brown will be perfect for him :) Soon, maybe!

UFO update and RR

I forgot to post an update of the UFO I am supposed to be stitching! I said supposed to as I haven't been feeling well enough to do lots of stitching. Few stitches here and there.

I was able to stitch the light green area on the left and couple rows of brown on the bottom.

I didn't finish my part of my own round robin. Mostly cause of my back problems but also cause I didn't expect the lines I stitched to take so long! I even miscalculated.. lol, ofcourse. The fabric is "Barely Bronzed" by Sparklies. My theme is wild animals, so I chose brown colour for the frame.

Tomorrow I'll post pictures from a little trip I made with my mum last week. We like to go to see churches here in Finland. I took lots of pics of the two churches we went to see. I LOVED the first one we saw.. We also went to Ikea and Ideapark (big shopping centre) and I bought some scrapbooking mats! :) More about them tomorrow. :)
