A wedding card!

This wedding card is for a very special friend of mine who gets married next year. Unfortunately I am not able to make the wedding as she is in London... so this has truly been a labour of love!

I saw this beautiful card over at "Cards by Tiets" - a very talented young lady - who kindly let me have the tutorial.

Can you believe this is all in one card?

It is just awesome... and I enjoyed making this card so much!

Her colours are purple with a touch of lime - so thought it only apt to use them for her card.

Let's just hope my special friend does not see it on the blog before it arrives in her post-box!
Till next Time

Money Card

I needed a quick card / money holder for a gift that I had to give today.

This was very quick and easy and I was happy with the end results.

Take care

3 fold cards

I really have enjoyed making different variations of this 3-fold-card.

... and once you get the hang of it, they only take a couple of minutes.

This one is for my boss - together with a gift!

Till next time

Sixer Council Meeting - 4th December 2009

Each term we hold a Sixer Council Meeting for our Cub Scouts.
As the new Six he now has some responsibilities to take care of at each Pack Meeting.
Our Sixer Council Meeting was held at the Wimpy Bar before all the others arrived.
I made them special, individual cards about their new role as a Sixer.

Sixer Councils are very special and the Cub must realise that these are great occasions to be part of - it must be fun!

Special boxes printed with cub and scout pictures were made for each cub.

Inside were chocolates!

.... cards were made for each Six and Second admiring how special and unique they are; and thanking them for always trying their best.

The cubs came up with some new suggestions for games for next term which we will try out. They told us all about the games they love that we already play and also what outings they hope that we can go on next term.

We have an awesome bunch of Sixers and Seconds and they all work together so well!

Till next Time
