I can finally show them...

Good morning everyone, wow how fast are the weeks flying by, another couple of blinks and Christmas will be here...aaaarrrrggggghhhhh everyone run around and panic lol...have you noticed the Christmas things trickling into the shops for the last few weeks...sneaky and I dont know if its just me but way way way too early
I don't have a card to show you today but I promised I would show the wedding invitations I made for my Niece and her Husband (oooohhhh that sounds weird lol)...they so loved them and I had a little blush when he mentioned and thanked me in his speech

I made them on recycled cards...they are gorgeous cards and come in two colours, I have to recommend the lovely Lesley I bought these from is excellent, not only good value but super fast delivery...her shop is called Crabapplehome and is on ebay...the invitations I made by spraying adhesive onto the lace and sticking to the front, seriously messy I had to keep stopping to clean up my hands and nails so I didn't get any glue on the cards and made sure to get rid of any on the front of the mesh bit but it worked brilliantly I then made a slit the same size as the ribbon so I would have any messy edge...I used my good old trusty red backed double sided tape to stick the ribbon and the jewel embellishments are from a stunning shop full of amazing bejewelled and lush embellishments and jewellery findings called Imagine Doing it yourself, another fast service and excellent customer support
the menus I kept a lot simpler as I had 100 to make, I just printed them and used a smaller card, I must admit they looked great on the tables (I really should have taken a photo of the tables shouldn't I...oops)...well what do you think they aren't too shabby are they lol...they loved them and a few people mentioned them to me on the day...I'm off out to lunch with my gorgeous Phil today as he doesn't start work until late afternoon...whatever your up too have a fantastic day
