Vintage,piece,and some,cards

Morning guys well the sun is,out here and looks as though it is going to be a lovely day.
Well the,theatre was brilliant oh,I have never laughed so much,it was a brilliant show,Pauline,Quirk is so funny,her lines were just perfect she is such,a pro.
I loved birds of a feather when it was on the TV,but had my doubts,it would work on stage but oh my god how wrong was I it was amazing.
Alfie cried,for over half an hour,then Geoff,had to walk up and down with him in his,arms,and finally he settled down,oh god then I got in,you would think I had been gone,for months,he went berserk,bless his,heart.
Right,I have made this,8 by 8 chipboard piece,First I drew this apron,onto,card then,used Tims,paper to cover it,made the pockets,added some twine,to the top and the waist. Then added bits,and pieces to go inside the pockets.
Then I took another piece of,chipboard placed it on top again using Tims,papers to decorate,then added,a shape,used,distress inks,old paper and aged mahogany,edged the pieces with Red,ink. Then just added embellishments,which most are from Michelle's shop including the papers I have used.
 I then just added,pieces of the paper to accent the edges and finished with an old buckle,and tied lace through it,so hope you like it.

This is another commission card I have just made,had to have bees,on it,and it was for a 30th Birthday, special friend I have used,the colours the lady asked for,hope she likes it,


The image is coloured with Pro markers,I designed the papers in Serif,and just printed the whole thing out, added some,stickels glitter,die cut special friend,decoupaged the bees,added,30th to the wings,then finished with ribbon,card candy,and flowers.
The image was from Google,thanks to Lisa who pointed me,in the right direction,to access images I need for lots of cards.
So that is it from me,I have a whole load of cards to get made again for the shop,plus,another commission one,too,so hope too see you all later,bless you all for your amazing support,you are all just amazing,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Absolutely stunning artwork and a really lovely card Cheryl. Both so different in style too.
Glad Alfie finally settled down and hopefully he will get used to you not being there in time (seems a bit like my younger one and nursery school when she first started, cue heartbreaking crying)

Chris Arlington said...

Dear Cheryl, Simply adore your apron card, it is so special or should I say "sew" special.
Poor little Alfie. good thing he had Geoff to help him with his separation anxiety. Mommy needs to go out every day for short breaks so he understands you will come back. He must have drove Alice around the bend. LOL

Your cards and projects are always so delightful Cheryl. I am so glad you had such fun at the theater. I have never seen a puppy so attached to his mama. All he needs is more love and soon he will be secure enough.
