We had a great week at Butlins, the children really enjoyed it as there is enough for them to do and Ian and I got a chance to relax as well. After that we spent a few days with the in-laws, which was lovely. This time last year MIL was too unwell to play with the children, but a year later and she is much better and everyone had a great time.
In between all this, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary. I'm not the greatest romantic in life, so I am sure I checked with Hubby and we agreed not to get anything, which I assumed included a card - I was wrong. So at 11pm the night before I whipped up this exploding box using Stampin' Up DSP (retired), card and vellum. I was pleased with it, but you can see where I glued the vellum to the card - any suggestions?
I also had some thank you and birthday cards to do. I went back to may favourite 'Flamingo Lingo' stamp set and matched it with Stampin' Up in colour paper stack. I do love it, particularly the ribbon trim,
Here are the Thank you cards, for leaving Governors.
I have been very busy with my Stampin' Up bits and pieces, I have held two workshops that have gone very well, in the process of creating samples for my Open Day on 5th September and launching a local craft club on Thursday 10th September. Its very busy, but enjoyable.
