2 Weddings a Dragon!

Sorry but blogger is playing up again! I can't get the text to go where I want it too!
First card is A double gate fold. instructions on my blog you will need to look at August 2010.
The metal corners are from Wild Orchid here I used nesties 10 & bits from my stash.

Second card is adorable Dilbert Dragon & Bradley I bought yesterday from The Crafty pad here.
It's part of a gorgeous storybook but I have chosen to use it on it's own. I coloured it with Lyra water soluble crayons. I used a couple of nestie shapes and Up & Away First Edition paper. I used an MS punch & bits from my stash.
I'm entering the Dilbert & Bradley card into The Crafty Pad challenge here it's Bright and Bold or Soft Pastels.

My third card is made using a Keepsake xmas board, Wild Orchid flowers & bits from my stash.
I used Crafters Companion Pear Centura car.

Baby Boy pram card

I cut the sides of the pram on the Cricut Expression Baby cartridge 11 1/2 " out of thick 12 x12 card. Then cut a piece of 12 x 12 card in half. Glue one end to the other to make one long piece score about 1/2 an inch down each side and cut zig zag along both sides. This forms the middle part of the pram. Then decorate!
I am entering this into Divas by design challenge anything but a card. Here

Also Shopping our stash. Here

The lace was taken from another pram, which was really old sample, I used the decorations off the old one for the new one
