Our youngest daughter is being bridesmaid to her best friend on Saturday and she asked me to make her a card to give the Bride and Groom. I made two as I wasn't quite sure what she wanted .

August Post Cards

Well it's another month and that means it's time for our next Post Card swap over on the Chocolate Baroque Ning site. You can check it out via the link in my side bar. This month the colour is Orange and the flower is Poppies. I have some poppy stamps so I was able to combine both of these together when making my post cards.

Birthday Cards

I have been busy making cards for our various church fund raising activities, unfortunately  I forgot to take pictures of the ones that sold last week but here are a couple of others that I had left and that I will be putting onto the craft stall at our Flower Festival later this month. I apologise for the reflections and the poor photos but I had them all bagged up and ready before I remembered to take the photos

Happy Birthday Hannah

Today is our eldest daughter's birthday and this is the card I made and sent her

My inspiration for this card came from this one I found here although I used Spellbinders nestabilities die and different papers although they are still from Stampin' Up. The ribbon from my stash I dyed with my inked so it matched the papers and the sentiment. The flowers were some I also had in my stash that toned in with the papers. Unfortunately we won't be spending any time with our daughter to celebrate her birthday as she lives many miles away in Canada but hopefully we will get to speak to her at some point today.

3rd Wedding Anniversary

Today is our daughters third Wedding Anniversary! where does the time go? it really doesn't seem like 3 years since we were out in Toronto with them to celebrate a wonderful day. Such happy memories of a beautiful and very special day made especially so as Stephen officiated at the ceremony and I walked her down the aisle and our other daughter was her bridesmaid.

This is the card I made for them

This is what I made him
