Wedding Gifts for friends

Evening Bloggers,
I thought I would share with you my latest makes. I attended a wedding in Ireland on Saturday for my other halves best friend. We had a lovely 4 days break and some quality time together as my daughter Roslyn stayed at home with my sister. Anyway as we are on a tight budget and with the obvious cost of travelling to Derry and then onto Donegal I decided to make gifts for the bride and groom.
I wanted to make something that they would want to keep and be a reminder of the lovely day. I eventually decided on a typography design and I thought I could frame it. He is what I came up with.

 I also wanted to make a candle and card so I had a look through my CD's and decided on an image from Crafter's Companion bebunni Love range. Here is how it turned out,


 I decided to use the same image to create the card. I teamed it up with one the Glitter Girls embossing boards and some Centura Pearl Elegance A3 card.


I really enjoyed making these items and I just hope the bride and groom like them as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by.

Crafting Musketeer's Challenge 22 - 'cute'

Evening Bloggers, I can only apologise for the delay with this post as it should have gone live on 16th. However, I have only just had chance to check and guess what my scheduled post didnt go live again! With it being half term the kids have been at home and I just havent had chance to come on here. I apologise again.

Anyway here it is, the mid way reminder for Crafting Musketeer's. this month's challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Cuddly Buddly. The prize for this challenge is a £10 Gift Voucher for the store

Here is a little bit about them:

"Cuddly Buddly® is an independent online craft supplies business based in the UK. We understand how important it is to help people keep enjoying their creative hobbies and offer a wide selection of craft products from paper and string to designer digital art, ready to be delivered to you at just the click of a button.
How on earth, you may wonder did we arrive at the name 'Cuddly Buddly'. When Kim began drawing her teddy bears many of her customers commented on how they felt the little bears made you want to cuddle them. Hence the name, Cuddly Buddly - a family term of endearment we use especially towards younger members when a seriously squishy hug is being sought. Since then the name's stuck, like honey to a bear's paw!"

The sponsor gave us some papers and digi's to work with and here is what I have made.

Spectrum Noir markers
Die'sire doliy die
Die'sire christmas bow die
Papers from Cuddly Buddly
Image from Cuddly Buddly
card blank and card for mat's all from my stash aswell as the twine

Hope you can come and join us over at Crafting Musketeers this month
