I made this card for my friends Grandson who is a real Ginger Knob so thought the hair colour was appropriate.
The stamp is from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers,  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and Summer Driggs Designs. The sentiment was computer generated.

Now need to get back to the Wedding Thank You Cards.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.  Your comments are greatly appreciated.

I'm Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Everybody, I thought it was time I put my head up again though I don't know how long it will be for. Life has been taking over recently with preparations for my son's wedding at the beginning of May.  I have been busy making the Wedding Stationary, 4 Waistcoats for the men and a Bolero for the Bride.  The waistcoats are made in Lilac Shot Silk Dupion and I must admit I'm quite pleased with them as I haven't done any dressmaking for years,  After the wedding I will post some photos so that you can see the final effect.

Here is a sample of the Invitations. The bride requested purple and green with Butterflies and Dragonflies and this was what she chose form the samples I made.  The purple ribbon is the same shade as the card although it doesn't look it on the picture.

I have also made Triangular Favour boxes and am now making Thank You cards. The boxes are still flat as we have to take everything to the USA for the wedding so will have to make them up when we get there.

Hopefully I will be back again soon with some cards I've made. I have a Craft Sale I'm attending on Saturday so trying to get everything up together for that.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, your comments are greatly appreciated.
