Sunday, Sunday

It's been a really good today. I've made two cards, a box for one of them and also been out for lunch with all my family (parents, sister and brother etc). The weather was nice for us and the food was gorgeous.
Unfortunately one of the cards was a sympathy card. One of my friends husband lost his mum on Thursday evening so it was for them. She was ninety last August and until she went into hospital about five weeks ago she lived alone in her own house and looked after herself. Here is the card I made. I do try to stay away from black for sympathy cards unless it is specifically asked for.

The next card I made for a friend to give to a friend of hers. She will be 60 soon!!

It's difficult to show but it is actually an acetate card. If anyone has any tips on photographing acetate I will definately welcome them. I made the actual card from Crate Twirl collection (which I love)! I then fastened the card inside an acetate sleeve with Papermania pearl brads. The flowers are Prima, Papermania and the large one is from Dunelm. The front tucks into the flap at the bottom of the card. I cheated with the box............I put together a bought one and decorated it!I have two birthday club cards to make and 30 wedding invitations tomorrow so not too strenuous. Also tomorrow we are going for an all you can eat Chinese buffet. It is absolutely superb and at £4.99 a head it would be rude not to! LOL DD2 is cooking at school tomorrow, she is making a meat pie (Tuesday's tea) which means I don't have the dreaded task of thinking what to have for tea until Wednesday................I could get used to this!!!
Bye for now. xx
