Well here is a diverse selection of recent cards:
The specification for this one was the wording on the front, oriental red and pink lilies, Betty Boop and bingo! Yup I do get strange requests! Lilies from JS RHS cd. BP backing paper from a royaly free image.
forgot I had this image of bingo marker pens - was over the moon when I saw it had BP on the bag! I also created a liner for the envelope, tiling the image in MCS!
an image from JS Thomas Kincade cd with a little glitter added for a friend who loves the sea.
and finally the card I created for my daughter's wedding anniversary - created with Forever Friends cds.

Here are some of the cards made this month. Hopefully I am now slightly ahead with orders and family birthdays etc. and might even make a start on the 150 Christmas cards I need to make! (Although am now waiting to order the new JS cd being launched this weekend - as I love the robin image in that!)
an order for a 75 birthday for a lady who loves gardening and bingo - the rosette at bottom right is actually bingo cards! Image from JS Jane Netley Mayhew Part 2 cd
another sympathy card for a neighbour, whose lovely wife lost her battle with cancer this week. Image from JS Heavenly cards cd.
I think this was a LOTV image that I bought at Ally Pally earlier this year, and some backing paper from a goody bag, which I have gone over with sakura stardust pen to highlight the writing.
This image from JS Thomas Kincade cd - I love the colours in this image. the gold strip on the right looks as though it is hanging off as the light caught it - but it isn't really - amazing what a tad of autumn sunlight does to a photo!
Image and backing paper from Forever Friends cd
Now that I have taken them down, I thought I would share some of the lovely hand-made cards we received for our Ruby Wedding.
How beautiful is this - a card from my neighbour made by her son. Still haven't quite worked out how he made it!
A card from a friend's children
My daughter made this one for my husband to give to me. She pinched the image from the picture I had put on FB of the cake flowers!
The following are from various forum friends, Guiding friends, neighbours and some of the family.
from forum friend Jacque
Seem to recognise the people in this card!
and I mustn't forget all the other cards we received!
I also thought you might like to see a few photos of the day - didn't realise when we booked the hotel that the colour scheme was red and cream!
