Hello, I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.  Mine has been good, my eldest DD arrived yesterday with what seemed like 20 rolls of fabric that we needed to convert into skirts for the school production.  Just to explain, she is a teacher who when reading an internal email asking for some help with sewing for the yearly school production she volunteered.  Thinking it would be a little hand sewing on some sequins and such.  I then get an email that went something like this: Mum help!  What have I got myself into, can I come round this Saturday so we can make up some skirts!
A lot of yesterday was spent making up these skirts, each with 3 panels and elasticated waists, nothing difficult and I got both sewing machines up so we were both busy.  From the 2 big bags full of material we made 9 skirts, it doesnt sound much but it sure looked enough once they were neatly piled up!
Luckily she is leaving that school so it will have been my 1st and last time as a costume maker!  The ladies on Strcitly Come Dancing who make all of those stunning costumes are safe - I wont be getting their job!  lol

Onto cards.  Here are a couple of cards I made using images from Charmed Cards and Crafts.  The 1st is Madison - ooh la la. 

This is Madison - so chic!  It's the first time that I've used either of these images as Ive not really felt that I had the occasion to use them before but I just went for it!  Blimey, I live on the edge!  lol!

The last image I used from CCC is Madison - goes to the Ball.  I made an easel card for my nephew's wife and she's a really lively and fun girl so I hope she likes it!
All images were PM'd and all patterned papers are from Pink Petticoat.

Have a good week,
