I'm a happy, happy girl

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you - I hope your day is as good as mine. I just got some results back from Uni today - I have been waiting very patiently for what seems like ages although when I think about it - it is really only days hehe. Anyway I got a High Distinction - Whoo hoo - YAY I am very pleased with myself - and it is my most difficult course for this term so it's a good start. Although I am now nervous about the assignment due next week as I have a hard act to follow now don't I hehe I have to keep to that standard otherwise I will be disappointed in myself.
Anyway I have a few cards to show you today - I did promise them the other day but I got carried away with my studies again . . . . sorry - but it is so much fun. These cards are a few wedding cards that I have made to stock up my supplies again  

This is the first one that I made - using a 'stamp it' stamp and some beautiful Bella wedding paper that was left over from last years Christmas card and a little heart charm. (made me feel like I was the lovely Jules from Always with a Heart hehe adding a little heart to my card) 
Then I made this black and white one just using up some left overs from my stash pile. It wasn't my favourite which is why I only photographed it in this shot but funnily enough I had a lady come round to the house today to buy a wedding card and this was the one she liked the most - just goes to show we all have different taste !

This is the inside of the silver one - using a Creative Memories punch.

And finally my favourite for the day - I had made one similar to this last year and loved it so much that I made another similar - usually I never make two cards the same but I couldn't resist, and really they are different - just kind of the same. Both stamps are from 'stamp it'

I have used my fiskars border punch - that is loved so much it is now held together with sticky tape. And I think the other punches used are also fiskars except for the butterfly which is a Martha Stewart.
Ohhhh and I forgot to mention that I have heat embossed all of the stamped images with silver embossing powder - I don't emboss much any more - which is sad as it looks so nice.

Ok well I am off to go see what my boys are up to - I think they are watching cartoons - what is it with boys and cartoons hehe their whole world stops when cartoons are on - I'm sure the house could burn down around them and they would never notice hehe

Ok well have a good rest of the day
talk soon
