New Home

Hello there and thanks for popping by my blog today.

Today I am sharing a card I made for a friend who I met at the bus stop on my way to work.
Something had happened and we along with others were waiting an age for a bus to come along.
We just started talking and became good friends.

Me and my husband renewed our wedding vows last year (30 yrs). We went to the same church where we got married, but had a different vicar.

Denise, who I met at bus stop, worked at the university and had access to an industrial cutting machine. She made cut out heart shapes for the table, heart shaped wooden decoration with our names in it & also I asked her to design my cake topper.

Heart Decoration

Cut out heart shapes

Now onto the card I made 

I made the flowers.
Typed the saying myself.
The tag states what day they moved in.
Key I have had in my stash for yonks.

Inside of card

I think decorating the inside adds to the card. I never used to!!

Cheers ... to good friends..

Today I am sharing a card I made for a very good friend.
We both love a prosecco.

She loved the card, and I really enjoyed making it too.

I just printed off glass shape, cut out and used as a template. Added all the bling. My handmade foam flowers. Sentiment was from a Whimsy blog win I won ages ago along with loads more. It was perfect for this card.

Christmas wedding favour

Today I am sharing a photo of a Christmas cracker that is actually a wedding favor.
Inside will be an organza bag containing some chocolates.

I made 100 of them!!!  It sent me crackers, lol.

My Cousin gets married in December and I thought this would be a nice unique wedding gift for her and her bride to be, because they already live together. (I obviously asked her first).

The card was from lime tree crafts that I embossed with an A4 embossing folder, Victorian swirls.
Ribbon I purchased from Ebay.
Poinsettia die (I can't remember who by)
Leaves are a Tattered Lace die.
Diamante from pound shop.
Glitter glass from Anna Marie designs.
Organza bags purchased from Wish.

50th Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a card that a friend requested.
She just wanted her friends name and age on the card and then left colour combo etc down to me.
It's surprising how blooming hard this is!!!! It seemed to take an age because I kept adding things, then taking it away, as I am sure you have all done.

I do hope you take time to leave a comment so as I can visit you too.
Many Thanks

Many Thanks
