Hello, I've been busy this week finishing the wedding invitations for my friend's son, they wanted them by the end of the month but I wanted to finish them as soon as I could.
Emma the bride, bought the most gorgeous materials for me to work with and had some great ideas. We decided on this design, the hand beaded lace is absolutely stunning, which is obviously the star of the show. It's a very simple design but was actually very time consuming and it took me a lot longer than I expected, even with my daughter, Paige to help me.
I love how they turned out and Emma was thrilled, she came to collect them today, which I thought was very apt as it's Valentine's Day! When she saw them, she was very emotional and even shred a tear, I think it hit her that this was real and she was going to be a married woman in just a few months time. I was so pleased with her reaction, it was definitely worth all the work!
It's been a long time since I last made a card but a couple of weeks ago my friend Gina, invited the "Card Girls" around her house for a card class. Gina cut out the rocker card bases for us and gave us some ideas on how to decorate them, you can find Gina's card, here. I went with this very sweet Lily of the Valley stamp, I even used Pro Markers to colour in the image, I bet it's two years since I last used them. I really enjoyed our card making evening and hopefully we'll do it again soon.
Thanks for stopping by, have a fab weekend, my daughter, Jodie is coming for the weekend, I can't wait to see her, it's been over a month since I last saw her!
