New creations made over easter

Hi guys, thought you may like to see a few of the cards I made over easter.
The first one is quite fitting at the moment with the royal wedding coming up-we all know Queeny loves a good brew!
I had particular fun making the caterpillar one with googly eyes-it went down a storm with it recipient!

Snoozer Marley...

Could not resist uploading this selection of photos of Marley yesterday-he was like the most sleepy cat in the world all day! He looked like a little Ewok purring away content laid out on the carpet while I made cards x

A very happy easter for me...

What a lovely stretch of time off I have had. Got lots done in the Garden including staining the decking, my planters and bench. Have seen my girlie's, we went for a picnic to Chatsworth to toast Katie's engagement-I gave her the poem bottle I had made which she loved.
Then today hubby and I went off with some friends and there little girls on a nice long walk in the countryside where we saw a whopping 40 horses in total-Little Sophie aged 6 was counting them all the way round. So tomorrows my last day off and I'm planning to spend it catching up on oodles of card orders and a wedding anniversary in a jar.

Also came across this fantastic cat sketch from "Simon's Cat" it reminded me so much of our cat Marley who has woken us up on the dot of 6.30am every morning by any means necessary!! Take a look.
Hope you all had a great Easter to xx

Best buddy has got engaged x

My best friend in the world, Katie got engaged a few weeks ago!! We have been friends since brownies where her first memory of me was me dressed in a big green homemade caterpillar outfit-thanks mum!

I wanted to make her a little something to mark being engaged. This little bottle was salvaged from the recycling and I have decorated it in my usual vintage style. I wrote a little poem that I have rolled up and popped inside. Poetry is not something i'm that great at but thought I would give it a go.

Anyway I hope she likes it-and hope she doesn't see this post before I see her at the weekend.

Let me know what you think?x

Really love wrapping things and making the package look lovely. Jessica they are winging there way to you tomorrow!!

I have also put a new card design into the pack, thought it would be nice to have a card to send a friend, not necessarily for an occasion but just to say hi.

wedding in a jar....

My good friend Nic noo is getting married this weekend so I have made her a little jar of wedding  goodies. Really enjoyed packaging it all up and making all the finishing touches! I hand stamped little luggage tags to wrap around each individual gift inside which included...a linen "love heart" two glass hearts, a lip balm for kissable lips, love letter note paper, ribbon to "tie the knot" and a mini horse shoe for luck. I finished the jar with a spotty fabric top, twine, hand made labels and a butterfly-really chuffed with it!x
