DH asked me to make a 30th wedding anniversary card for his friends who will be celebrating with a party on Saturday 16th June. We did get invited to the party but we had already accepted another party invitation from another friend. It's a bit like buses - nothing for several weekends and then two invites (three including an invite to visit dear friends who we haven't seen for a while) for the same weekend. I've made the card using SU's Soft Suede and Sahara Sand cardstock from their mixed pack of cardstock. The designer papers are from the SU Mocha Morning speciality range. I even pulled out the Shimmer Paint to give the Sahara Sand cardstock well some shimmer. Nesties were used to create the sentiment mats and an XCut border punch rof the striped paper. Finished off with some SU Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon and pearl jewels. The sentiment is from a retired SU Hostess set.
Yesterday we started off with brilliant sunshine but later in the afternoon we had heavy rain and thunder! I had managed to get the washing which I had put out in the morning in before it poured down - my arrival back from food shopping was just in time. As it was so miserable in the afternoon I managed to get quite a bit done on the Fat Man SAL which I will post an updated photo of tomorrow along with the progress I have made on the Yiotas cross stitch Landscape
Today I have to go to the hospital with Colette who unfortunately is bordering on diabetes during this pregnancy. Colette has to test herself three times a day now and has been told to try and keep it under a certain level - I met them while food shopping yesterday and they were busy looking at food labels trying to find out how much sugar everything contained.
Not sure what the rest of the day has in store but I hope you all enjoy your day and thanks for visiting. I have just noticed that I have reached 100 followers so I think I will have a little giveaway. If you would like to be entered into the giveaway please leave a comment and let me know what your favourite craft is and I will pick a gift to match the craft. I will leave this open until the end of June. Please note this is for my exisiting followers only.
