Busy weekend...

Hello and a good start to the week to everyone!
I have been busy this weekend. Had to make two christening cards for an order.

I also wanted to finish some cards for do crafts friends. One of them is also my entry for the current Magnolia challenge, set by Julie. The brief was to create a shabby chic/distressed card using a Tilda/Edwin and incorporate something that is NOT from your normal card making stash. I don't feel comfortable with the distressed look yet but it was fun to do. I used an old lock from our front door and inked away, sanded some coredinations cardstock that I had embossed. Tilda is watercoloured with Marvy le Plume pens.

Here are the other cards I managed to make last night. Hope you like them!

This next one is going to a special do crafts friend together with some craft goodies that I am sure she will use to great effect!
