Why I have been so quiet

I know I said last week I would be back with a another card the next day but I was struck down with a two day migraine. Never had one that bad before and it really wiped me out.
So once I was over that I then had a set of  wedding invite's to make for my cousin's wedding in August, where I am to be one of eight bridesmaids!!!

Here they all are ready to be collected. Louise loved a design that was a sample on a tattered lace launch and this is my version.
I have used centura pearl card for both the gold and the white shimmer.
Tied together embossing folder.
Tattered lace bows.
Cosmic shimmer olympic gold acrylic glue for the gold pearls.
Inkylicious wedding words stamps.
Metal embellishments off eBay.

Each invite consists of 23 liquid pearls which makes a total of 1702 pearls!!!
Think I can class myself as an expert at using those now.
Nearly as good as Creative Expressions demonstrator Julia Watts!!

So there you go, I've been a busy girl behind the scene's and would like to thanks my best friend Kath for coming over and helping so I didn't go too mad with all the repetition.

I have a card to share with you either later today or tomorrow and I'd love your honest opinion on it.  It's not my usual style and I'm just not happy with it and don't know if it's just me or not.
so thought I'd let you decide,

So where have I been?????

Good afternoon everyone. I'm sorry it's been 4 weeks. I went to Mexico for the first two and must have caught a cold on the flight home as first I had neuralgia then a full blown cold.
It's finally on the way and today I have a couple of things to share.
I have a HUGE addiction to anything by the wonderful Sheena Douglass and am slowly building up a great collection of her stamps. Sadly she launched her latest lot of embossing folders when I was sat waiting for my delayed flight at the airport on the way to Mexico so wasn't able to buy her 4 day deal but have slowly added some of her folders to my stamp collection and Hubby kindly set the sky box to record her shows whilst we were away.

And so, on a Thursday my BFF's Kath and my Mum meet up to make cards and what's nice is that even though we all use the same colours, techniques and supplies we all end up with different cards.
Here are our cards.

This is Mums.

Here is Kaths.

And here is mine.

All are created on an acetate card base, layered with patterned vellum then distress ink coloured card that has been embossed or debossed with Sheena Douglass grande florals embossing folder.
The flowers were made by embossing a piece of vellum with the petit florals flder and painting them with twinkling H2O's.  The large distress inked panel has also been spritzed with a mica spray.

I love how they are all different.  
Tomorrow I have a card made using a different embossing folder, which creates a very different look to the soft pinks of these cards so until tomorrow,
