Save The Date

Hello there ....

Phew! life has been so busy lately...I mentioned in an earlier post that a dear friend is getting married next year and I am making her Wedding invitations and Save the Date cards ... That has kept me busy for a while.
The designing, wording etc., takes time and basically all I had to go on were the colours and maybe some bling? Lol!

So here's the finished Save the Date


They are now all completed - The invitations will be more or less the same and I have breathing space before I start the 100 or so ...
You can see that my Big Shot got an extra work out together with my arm! And the vellum leaves often argued with the Cameo! Sourcing everything I needed takes a lot of time ... We are really stuck for craft shops here and the few we do have are very expensive so everything is bought via the internet... 

Keeping up with DT work, Thursday Club and commenting has been a little exhausting...I found that concentrating on the STD cards left me with little inspiration for anything else. In a few days time I will have my dear friend Stella visiting and a week later DH and I are taking a well earned (well, for me anyway) holiday. We are off to Majorca and hopefully some sea, sand and sun. It will be a treat just having someone else do the cooking and cleaning I can tell you... 

Have a great day and thanks so much for looking in on me

So elegant and beautiful! Such hard work! I also need to do a load of Save the Dates soon - for my daughter's wedding - and I know it is quite different to what we usually do - more of a production line. However, I will be expecting my lovely bride to get on the production line with me! Have a great time with Stella!
