Yes, I am still alive - barely!

I have not dropped off the edge of the world, I have just been crazy busy. I had an order to make 120 invitations for one of my girls' 16th birthday. Only problem was she wanted them within a week and I worked almost every spare minute I had, going to bed at 2 some days, just trying to finish them.(Don't think I would ever have finished if my DD did not come and help all day yesterday! Thank you Karin - love you!)
This is what they looked like. Every little gem had to be stuck on individually after the crown was stamped and embossed. Thank goodness for my Cricut! I think I would have passed out if I had to cut those circles by hand or punch them individually. The white paper was embossed with my Cuttlebug. All papers are Bazzil and the ribbons and gems are from our local habby store.
Next time remind me to use just one piece of ribbon when I have to cut and tie 120!
LOL. So glad they are finished, now I can enjoy Mothers Day with my children.
The next card is one that I coloured a very long time ago. I just had to make something else before I go mad. Very simple - just the image (a freebie) cut with Nestabilities, some Doodlebug paper and paper roses with some Stickle dots.

And then, last but not least, one of Mo manning's darling images. I was asked to make a birthday card for two year old twins. Aren't they just too cute for words? The dp is Making Memories and Doodlebug. I used my new Martha Stewart border punch. The ribbon is from my stash and so are the pins and beads.
I am busy working on a Bugaboo image and hope to show it to you soon. Hopefully I will have some more time for my blog and to visit some of your blogs this week.
Happy Mothers Day to all of you celebrating it today.
