my first wedding card

one of the vicars at OH's church is getting married in August - to a French lady! OH has been helping him with his speech so I thought I would make them a card (any excuse to use the fab LOTV stamp!). the sentiment isn't quite at the angle I wanted but I hope they like it anyway!!

stationery box

I was looking at the
Creative Craft World blog where the latest challenge is holiday. there are some fab makes by the DT and I loved the stationery box that Sarah had made. I had thought about making my MIL a box of cards for her birthday and this was perfect to put them in. I am quite impressed with how it has turned out especially as I am not very crafty and this is the first time I have made anything like it. It is not as perfect as Sarah's and there are things I would do better/differently next time (would probably use double sided paper) but I am pleased with it. I just have to make the cards now!! I will put some postage stamps in the little pocket and not sure what to put in the small boxes - have a week to think about it.

a birthday card made early!!!

one of my best friends has her birthday in August whilst we are away. she is away at the moment and comes back after we have left so for once (and it doesn't happen very often!!) I have made her card and present early! I made her a hamper but forgot to take a photo and here is her card

a friend of mine is moving back to Germany after the summer holidays. we met when ds1 was at nursery with her daughter. they then went to separate infant schools and met up again at junior school. although I don't see much of her I will miss her as we see each other every day at school. I used one 9f the fab digi images I won from stampin with the dragon.
