Another wedding!!!!!

Happy Saturday to everyone, I hope you're enjoying some fabulous weather where you are - its hot, hot, hot here in sunny Bournemouth.
Anyway folks I have another little wedding set to show you and this is the last of my wedding commissions for the time being. I have certainly got my moneys worth out of my Greetings Farm 'cake topper' stamp set. Anyway, I was asked for something lilac and cream and this is what I came up with.
The very first piccie shows it all together - the little chocolate box that opens so you can put a gift inside, the bigger box to house the easel card when folded and lastly the easel card itself and then a couple of extra piccies to show you everything close up.
I won't waffle too much about what I did but the papers used were Papermania Capsule collection, I love these papers but I do wish that you had more than just one sheet of each design! The flowers were a mixture of Wild Orchid crafts and some from my local haberdashers. Went a little crazy with the old stickles but not really sure you can see it in the piccies. The brides dress was completely stickled and all the edges and flowers, like I said stickle crazy!!! The sentiment is a die cut from somewhere but can't remember where and the doily lace punch got an outing.
I'm also entering this into a couple of challenges:-
The ABC challenge - Y for you and me
Anyone for Anya - which is 'anything goes'
Right gotta dash now as I have to go collect my little girl from a birthday party, its the first time I've actually left her at one so I'm hoping she enjoyed herself.
Catch ya later guys. Take care wherever you are.

Hello - me again!!

Hi all, me again said I wouldn't be long!
This is the gift box I made to complete the set. I won't bore you with all the details but I will leave you with the fab links where I got the ideas for everything and the stamps and flowers.

'Picking Apples' stamp - Funky kits

Okay folks I'm off to bed now.

Take care



Finished Candle & Gift Box

Hi everyone really hope you've had a fantastic weekend. We had a good one, the weather was a bit plop but that didn't matter. We took the kiddiewinkles to see the latest Shrek movie and had a thoroughly good time.
Anyway, this will be another quick one from me as its even later tonight and I should really get some nap time. This is the candle and gift tube I did to go with my earlier 'Picking Apples' card for my auntie. I've been wanting to do a candle for a long time and I'm really glad I did it was so easy and something I will certainly being doing again. I've also made a tube for it to go in which was a little more fiddly but well worth the effort and finally a gift box to complete the set.
Well for some reason blogger won't let me add another piccie so I'll have to show you the gift box in another new post.
So I'll be back shortly with the gift box.
Take care.
