Here bright and early today .. .. but only because I am sharing the last of my Mother's Day cards that I made last week. This is now the end of my "ready and waiting to be posted" makes.
Image: Digistamp Boutique: Sketchy Flowers (this is just one of the flowers from a set of four)
Sentiment: Digistamp Boutique: Mother's Day Set
Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat "Marshmallow"
X-Cut Punch: Butterfly (stamped with a crackle glaze stamp and distressed)
Glamour Dust (for the flower tips)
Ribbon, cord and charm from my stash box
All layered up and printed out using Serif Page Plus. A programme that I need to play with much, much more!!
There were a few questions in my comments and by email yesterday about my snippet make yesterday.
The image is a stamp from Penny Black called "Scented Message" Ref. No. 4239K and it has fast become one of my favourite floral images. I was tempted to buy it at the NEC last March but showed restraint and put it back onto the shelf .. .. but I couldn't get it out of my head and ended up buying it a few months later LOL!!
The backing papers were from Nitwits "Potting Shed Too"
The last question is hard to answer. How do I manage to tie two ribbons together at the same time .. .. well no magic answer for that one I'm afraid .. .. just lots and lots of practice I suppose! (Hoping that is the right way to spell practice .. .. I never know if it is an "s" or a "c" .. .. if anyone can teach me that then please do).
So now round to the wedding fayre report.
Thank you for all your good wishes .. .. it was a lovely day. Beautiful sunshine for most of the day.
There seemed to be fewer visitors than normal and possibly fewer exhibitors .. .. but I was the only one offering wedding stationery .. .. which was good. Lots of interest and some folk who I know will definitely be getting in touch .. .. and one customer who sent an email before I had even packed away, ordering one of my framed table plans!
Some of my current "happy couples" came and paid us a visit too and some of them were signing their samples off .. .. which now means I have lots of work to be getting on with. I love hearing everyone's plans and sharing in their excitement.
As always we got to sit and eat a gorgeous cupcake from one of the ladies who exhibits. Every time we go we are treated to one. But then we were also given samples of ice cream and sorbet from a lady who was exhibiting an old fashioned ice-cream cart fixed to a bicycle. That was all super scrummy too and very popular.
We came away feeling very full !!! LOL!!!
So off to get some wedding work done now and I will catch you again soon.
