Sketch Saturday vs Anyone for Anya

I always love the Sketch Saturday sketches, here is this week's...

...which I rotated and turned into a birthday card for my sister in law to be (lots of birthdays this week!)

She's a shopaholic so this Miss Anya image was perfect. This week's Anyone for Anya challenge was 'Make a Fake' so I did some fake paper piercing by using a dotted line stamp down the edge of my image

Thanks for stopping by x

Friday Sketchers

Great sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week...

...and I needed to make a birthday card for my Mother in Law to be so it was the perfect opportunity to try out my new Garden Whimsy set and Whimsy wheel

I love this effect of raising up the butterfly but I'm a bit concerned about how it will survive the post!

Thanks for looking x

Wedding Fever has struck!!!

I'm getting married next year in July and I have been busy preparing...in the last few weeks I have found and bought my dress (no photos sorry!), found and bought the bridesmaids' dresses, had a hair trial, had a make up trial, sorted out our wedding rings and booked a load of other stuff! Phew, I've been busy, hence the disappearance from Blogland!

Most importantly, I have finished designing my wedding invitations which I have been agonizing over for months!

The fabulous Steph helped me out and lent me some of her lovely crafty goodies and at long last I finished the front...

...then I had to move on to the inside which I am now really happy with

the little cards come out (as you can see below) and have directions, a map, info about hotels, taxis & gifts as well as a little RSVP card so that people have no excuse not to respond!

And then I moved on to confetti cones (which for some reason my other half does not seem to think are a necessity?!) and cake boxes, both of which I cut out on my Cricut

These will all go in a lovely wicker basket and be given out by my little flower girl

and these I'm going to circle up and put on plates, which I think will look really cool on the day!

And finally (phew, I bet you're thinking!) here are a couple of hair pictures, just because I think I look quite nice!

I am going to enter this lot into this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge which is ''Glitter me silly" because the whole lot has sparkle on it, whether it's little diamontes or full on glitter, even my hair has glittery things in it!!!

Thanks for looking!!!
