Mothers Day

Good morning, I've made my Mum a flower circle for Mothers Day as she is allergic to flowers but loves them. I'm hoping she can hang this on her kitchen door and will last a lot longer than anything I may have bought her to grow.
I started by drawing two circles on some packaging and cut the wreath shape out. I printed some papers from Crafts the Year Away (Marching On) and made sure I printed both sides to catch any overlaps. I then made some scalloped circles using the Nestabilities and placed them all around the circle front and back. I then made some flowers using my big shot and some sizzix dies and added a ribbon hang, some clear gems and a sprinkle of glitter on the edges. A few buttons with a couple of strands of fibre and that was it! It's hanging on my door a bit squiwhiff but I'll sort that out before I give it to Mum.
I'm going to put it in for this months challenge over at Funky Hand. Thanks for looking x

Engagement card

'morning all, I've made the engagement card and they've been sent out so I can share. I used a photo from their holiday in Venice. It was just at the spot where he proposed so it had meaning for them both. I used my nesties to make a frame and just added a heart with a few gems. The wording was just made on the computer. Easiest invite I've done for a while. They were pleased and have had some positive comments which is all good. I may have a wedding out of it as one of their friends wanted my details to ask if I can do their wedding next year. I've done 5 weddings so far and may have 2 coming up so it will keep me out of mischief for a while:)

March already?

Where did February go? I'm busy making some engagement invites for my son who just proposed to his partner in Venice on a gondola. How romantic is that? I'll pop a photo on when they've sent them out. I've had a go at using the grey range of Promarkers as Nicki from Polka Doodles did on Create & Craft. It's not bad for a first attempt but I need to improve. Hope you're having good weather like we are in South Wales. Cardiff City play again tonight so I'm hoping for a win again.
