Wedding and Birthday..

Hi all.
Last night I worked on a personalised birthday and wedding card-both are variations of each other as the design is quite generic so works well across a whole manner of occasions.

I think the printed lace trim works really well and looks really authentic with the zig zag stitch.

Wedding favours for lovely Lucy x

While I am on the wedding case here are some little seed favour packets I made for my friend Lucys    wedding. Each pouch had a different kind of seeds inside-this one was spinach. Special Thanks to Katie my best mate who hand stamped all the lolly sticks! ( Other stationary was made by my talented other half!)

Our wedding stationary...

I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the wedding stationary myself and my husband made together for our wedding in 2009.

                                                                       Table names
Place names, favour tags, guest books.
             We made every guest a book featuring the whole wedding party and a little bit about each of them.

Fish bowl Head!

Card orders are mounting up thick and fast so Im hoping I get rid of this cold soon and can upload new card eye candy!

In the mean time thought I would upload some photos I took on my last visit to Paris, enjoy....

wedding Bells...

As promised a couple of pics of the wedding cards I made yesterday.
One in true Button box style with all the bells and whistles on- I actually came up with this one a couple of years ago-its an oldie but goody that people seem to like and the second one a new design more modern using typography.

See what you think, all comments welcome!

The week has passed in the blink of an eye!

Hi Bloggers!
This week has passed so quickly and before I knew it, it was the weekend! Unfortunately not a lot of card making has taken place this week as its been all go at work designing the new seasons clothing.

Saturday morning was spent catching up on mothers day card orders. Marley moo was sat at my side snoozing, occasionally lifting his head in annoyance at the wuurrrrrring noise of my sewing machine.

Whilst doing our weekly shop in Sainsburys this little comic relief fellow caught me eye-grinning back at at me amongst the tomatoes, couldn't help but take a piccy as it made me smile.
