Some cards and fat pages

Apologies for not blogging for a few days, I'm back now, feeling a lot brighter after a chat with the dr. (and no I don't have depression, just a bit stuck in a rut!).
Today I decided to get the 'fat book pages' done for the Sugar Nellie swap over on the CM&PC forum, as I have signed up for a flower swap next, thought I had better get this first lot finished first!!

One of these is mine, think it'll have to be the fairy one!!

I have also made a card for the Papertake weekly challenge, which is to use Katherina's sketch, at first I thought I would struggle with it, but after studying the cards already made, I thought lets give it a go, and it was the first time I had used my new 'Sweet Ebony' stamp from Sugar Nellie's (it only arrived this morning!), oh and how much do I love it???...........lots!!!!!
Next up is a card is using Nicola's latest sketch over at My Paperworld, not sure whether I really like the colours, but it's another card for my box! The following card is a 'special' one that I made for my 5 year old daughter Lillie. She had her first ever ballet exam yesterday, so thought I would make her a card! I had to take her for a practise session on Sunday and then yesterday she had to finish school early to be there on time, well an hour early as her teacher said the examiner they had almost always runs early (not yesterday she was running late!!). The front part is the 'good luck' bet you couldn't guess that could you?! Using the My Paperworld sketch again!!The middle has a pocket so a picture of her certificate or medal or whatever they get can go in it as a keepsake, at the moment there is a picture (turned over for my blog) of her and her best friend, also called Lily (but spelt differently!)The last part is obviously the 'well done' lol, we don't know yet how they got on apart from the fact that they all came out smiling, so we can only assume it went well!Well I think that's it, I did get a call from Kim at the shop asking for another personalized baby girl card, but I won't bore you with that as it is the same as the one in the previous post (with the baby tag) just with a different name!
