Blue and Cream

What a lovely, refreshing change it was to make a "normal" card after all the wedding samples.
The flower (not a clue what it is as per usual!) is a die cut one from the imag-e-nation shop and the patterned paper is from an Anna Griffin pad that I'd forgotten I had. Matched it up with some blue and cream card and finished off with doily punch, flower punch and pearls and not a ribbon or bow in sight .. think I need a lie down!! lol
Hope you're all having a good weekend xxx

And finally ... Sample No. 7

Well here it is ... the final sample.
This was my personal favourite and one of the easiest to do. A heart punch, couple of pearls and ribbon .. what could be simpler!
Like I said earlier, once Helen has sent the invitations out I will post the one she finally decided on, along with the Evening Invitations, Order of Service, Menu, Table Planner etc. etc.
I'll be back tomorrow with a "normal" card, until then enjoy your evening xxx

Sample No. 6

This is just a sideways version of No. 4.
This time I used the Birds & Swirls folder and a wider piece of ribbon, I can't decide if I like this version or No. 4 best.
Anyway I bet you're getting bored of these invitations now, so the good news is I'll be posting the last sample tomorrow!!!
Have a nice evening xx

Sample Wedding Invitations

I've been asked to make ALL the wedding stationery for my cousin's wedding in August, now while I'm quite nervous at taking on such a big order I'm excited too. I've made wedding invitations before but not on this scale, she wants day invites, evening invites, order of service, menu, place cards, table planner and whatever else is needed for a wedding!!
I did her seven samples to choose from and the one she chose was a combination of two of them. I'll show you the samples I sent her but I won't be showing the actual finished invitation until she's written them and sent them all out just in case any of the guests read my blog!!!
Here's the first and I'll be back with the second one tomorrow.
Oh and I've got a date tonight in Bridlington with .......... The Prodigy!!! Whooohoooo!!!
Have a nice day xxx

For Auntie Irene

This one is for my Auntie Irene's birthday at the end of January. The decoupage image is from a Le Suh booklet that I've had for years and I'd forgotten about and the lovely striped paper is from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl pad.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend and Happy Birthday Auntie Irene xx
