Our starter for 10!! - Sunflower Wedding Stationery x

Happy Easter x

I mentioned in my last post that I am making the wedding stationary for my brother Tim and his wife to be Tab. I got together a samples box,  which I hope will match their brief ... embossing and sunflowers with purple and a rustic feel as the wedding is going to be in the most beautiful barn !!

Love the sparkle in the lettering, I thought as there were so many idea's going round in my head I would do some of them on plain cards with a variety of shades and finishes

 Totally my favourite, love this lace !!

 I'll need a quality controller - the words are the wrong way round !!

Not in the brief but I love this die from Memory Box

I put 1 wallet style in just to try and tempt them lol

 My wild card and also my 2nd favourite, defo needs to purple though !!

This will be my first job I guess as we have just over a year until the wedding. You can just see the beautiful Die-namics die on the card in the background which is my source of inspiration

Love these as an alternative to pillow boxes 

I spent hours working out the measurements for the sunflowers based on the beautiful Die-namics sunflower die that I already have. I want to cut them on my Cricut Expression - I love my brother but not enough to make them all one by one from a metal die lol. Art Philosophy came to the rescue !! - I feel a round of speed crafting coming up - so excited !!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Easter back soon to update on the final choices

Long time ... No see !! xx

Oh my goodness I cannot quite believe how long it is since I last posted on my blog.  I used to have so much fun blogging my cards and sharing with my DT's. Craft Den is now an amazing fabric shop and although I still follow FCCB I dropped out of the DT due to time constraints just after my last post went up .... So I must change my Bio and update my blog toot sweet !! 

I thought I would just share my latest card for my soon to be sister in law Tab  and I will be back to share my latest venture ... Wedding Stationary!! My brother Tim has asked me to do the stationary for their wedding in May next year so I may need your help and advice as I go along. 

I love this card, I just used lots of shapes in my "left overs" box !!

Back very soon I hope

Quicky Birthday Card !!


Telling porky pies even for special surprises doesn't sit well so I guess sharing will reduce the guilt factor slightly me thinks !!! 

Here is my "quicky" 70th Birthday card for my Mum, her Birthday is Wednesday but we are celebrating with a surprise arriving for the weekend and Birthday meal with her on Saturday, shush......
I have a "posh" card for her but she can't have it till then lol

I used a freebie Hunkydory kit to make the card .... no expense spared there either 

She does have a huge bouquet of flowers arranged for delivery on Wednesday morning so she doesn't feel too neglected !!
