Cheers 50th

My second post today, haven't done that for a long 
I hope you are all well and keeping warm this January, not my favourite month I have to say, if I had my way I would just stay indoors till
 Just thought I'd share this one before I pop off to bed.  Many people who order cards from me specifically ask for this Fizzy Moon image so here he is again. He's great for special birthdays.
I have used 1st Edition papers, Wild Orchid flowers, Martha Stewart border punch, Nesties and Memory Box Hearts. I really like the colours on this card they go together so well.

IT'S A CAKE THING..........

Love these Stampin Bella images they are fab for girly cards of any kind. This one as you can see is quite large so really good for bigger cards too. I have coloured it with Copics and put stickles on the icing on the cake to make it pop. 
The papers are from First Edition and they are completely glittered. I used Sizzix Goblets, Marianne corners dies and Nesties to mount the image and the sentiment. As always when I do a card like this I like to have the numbers falling from the glass or the bottle. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts the ribbon and charms are from my stash.

Thanks for looking...

Fizzy Moon 60th

Short post tonight. Just thought it was a while since I shared a card with you. 
This one as you can see is a 60th Birthday easel card (they seem to be favourites at the moment). Image is Fizzy Moon which is great for special birthdays and I like to add some numbers popping out from the bottle. Papers are First Edition, Marianne dies, and Oval nesties. Martha Stewart border punch and Wild Orchid flowers.

Update on the printer finally settled on an Epsom but it will only take a certain weight of card. It will do just now till I find a better one. So the production line for the Wedding Invitation order is back
Thanks for popping in, have a lovely weekend

What is the best printer for taking card............

Hi folks, my Kodak all in one printer was great at taking any kind of card for printing but sadly it's given up on me.I'm finding it impossible to buy a new one as they seem to have stopped making them. I don't want to take a chance on a refurbished one that won't last. I would be gratefull for any feedback on which printers you all use.
Thanks so much
