Rustic Wedding Invitations

Hiya folks, hows your weekend going?  Thought I'd show you these rustic wedding invites that I finished making last week.  They are for my daughters teacher, she gave me the brief of something rustic, with texture and buttons.  I made a few sample for her and she choose these.  

I've used parchment paper to print the wording, then machine stitched that onto kraft cardstock, buttons and twine for more texture.

Thanks for popping by, take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Thank you card for mother of the bride

Hiya peeps....well I'm continuing with the Wedding theme again today with this thank you card I made from the bride to her mum.  
I've used mainly Spellbinders dies, plus Martha Stewart corner punch and memory box butterfly die.

Here's the card and box from a different angle, sorry about the photo quality, not sure what happened there.

And here's what the inside looks like.

Thanks for stopping by, xx vicki xx

Red and White Wedding Card and box

Hello it's me......again....I hope you had a fun Bank Holiday weekend.  We sure did pick the best day for our Jubilee Street party and managed to dodge the rain for a whole day, it was a brill day, mind you my head and body didn't think so the following morning....can't figure out why I felt so ill.......LOL!!!!!

Thought I'd show you a card and box that my Aunty asked me to make for her neighbours who recently got married.  The Bride's dress was actually red, but I didn't fancy colouring this bride's dress red :-(.  I've used mainly Spellbinders dies and embossing folders.

Thanks for visiting, my lil oasis, take care, luv 'n' crafty hugs xx vicki xx

Edwin thank you cards for page boys and ushers

Hiya folks, just been sorting through my camera with all the photos I've taken of cards made this past year, oh eck it's gonna take me a while to get them uploaded but these are for starters.

Back in April I made some Wedding Stationery for a friend of mine,she then asked if I could make thank you cards for all the Wedding Party. I made a few of these cards of for the lil pageboys, ushers and best man. Edwin has been coloured with Copics,the papers are Papermania, bakers twine, the stars and names were cut on my Cricut.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this weather  is going to improve for our street party tomorrow, because at the moment it is lamping it down.  Thanks for popping by my lil oasis.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

luv 'n' crafty hugs xx vicki xx

Hiya Bloggers...remember me ????

OMGolly gosh.......where has all these months gone......can't believe it's been the best part of a year since I last posted on my poor lil blog, not sure if anyone is reading this,but if your wondering where I've been, it's just that LIFE got in the way, together with work, kids, the house etc,something had to give and me being on the computer was that something. That's not to say that I haven't been crafting, infact quite the opposite. I've been really busy with making Wedding Stationery, I've got three Weddings on the go at the mo, which is great, I've also got loads of photos of cards on my camera,which I need to upload to PC, crop and watermark, then try to figure out how to use Blogger's new system......cor blimey, that was a bit of a shock when I logged onto Blogger and saw that everything was different.... why o why do they do silly things like that, I'm no good at technology at the best of times, takes me ages to get used to things then they go and blimming change things...drives me potty.......LOL :-).

We are all keeping well, the big news in our household is that my son Ryan and his girlfriend Samantha are 26 weeks pregnant, baby due around 10th September, a lil boy they're having. That was a shocker I can tell you,I am no where near ready to be a Nanna yet...but hey there you go.  They had a 3D/4D scan on freaky that was to see him wriggle around, we could even see that he has his Dad's lil button nose...oh bless..

Anyway I hope all my lovely blogging buddies are ok, and that you've got a fun Bank Holiday planned.  We're having our street party on Monday ,should be a really good day. Whatever your plans are, enjoy yourselves. I am going to try and figure out how upload some pics to this much neglected Oasis...

Luv 'n' crafty hugs to you all

P.S. edited to say that I figured out how to upload a scan photo of our lil Grandson
