25th Wedding Anniversary

Hiya folks, hope your all well and happy.  I made this back in March along with many more cards I've yet to show.

A very close friend of mine asked if I could make an Anniversary card for mutual friends of ours.  I wanted to keep the design clean and simple.  So I just used embossing folders, a few pretty embellies and my Martha Stewart border punch available from Dies To Die For

Here's what the inside looks like.

Well we're off bowling in a mo, then tomorrow off to Folly Farm, West Wales.  Hope you all enjoy your weekend, just wish this weather would improve....oh well....that's the British Summer for us!!!

luv 'n' crafty hugs to you all

My first stationery set

Hiya folks, well so much for me keeping on track with my blog hey!!!!  But the good news is that I have been  busy making lots of cards and will be popping them on my blog over the next few days or so.

I've been wanting to make a stationery box for so long now and after watching many videos on You Tube, voila.  I thought I'd also enter this into this weeks "Vintage" theme over at Just Magnolia.

Below is a picture of the entire set, which comprises of the stationery box, notelet set, box of gift tags and a matching birthday book.  It did take me forever to make, just because I always do things the difficult way and never make life easy for

The inside of the stationery box holds the birthday book, large paper clip bookmarks, tags, postage stamps, a small address book and pen.

The papers are Anna Griffin, Tilda has been coloured with Copics which are available from the lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

Thank you for popping by my lil oasis and for all the lovely comments you kindly take the time to leave.

luv 'n' crafty hugs
