Sunny Sunday

What started out as a miserable, wet day turned out to be lovely and warm.

Something woke me up at 7.30 this morning (I thought it was the door bell but after I'd woken up properly I realised it sounded nothing like our bell!!) but I was half way down stairs before I realised what time it was! I decided to stay up then and get some work done while it was quiet. I could have done some of the i***ing mountain..................but hey, crafting is better LOL

So what have I been up to today? Well, I've made a really good start on my 'list' as you will see further down this post. I can't show all my cards as three of them are for forum birthdays. However, here we go but first I will amend my list as there were a couple of things I forgot to add last night!

'To do' list
cards for Debbi
necklace for Rosie started
birthday card for niece done
wedding card done
5 cards for September birthdays 3 done
brother's scrapbook
seating plan and table names (just waiting for details from bride and groom)
prepare for a wedding open day on 6th September
civil partnership card done
2 Greek thank you cards done
6 thank you cards for my box
6 baby boy cards for my box
Niece's birthday card
Image and papers are both Pink Petticoat and flowers are Prima.

Wedding card
The image on this card is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Romance cd and has been printed onto vellum.
Civil partnership card
I made this card using the template from Friday Sketchers Sketch number 16


Spotty paper is Pink Petticoat again, I bought the flowers at a craft show a couple of months ago and the stamped image is by Creative Expressions, sentiment was printed on the pc and crystals are from my stash.

Greek thank you cards

The vase is an unmounted stamp I've had for a long time, the flowers are all Primas, the Ruffles are from Craftwork Cards, pearls are Papermania and the crystals and organza ribbon are from my stash.

So now my 'to do list' looks like this :)

cards for Debbi started

necklace for Rosie started

5 cards for September birthdays 3 done (the other two are for DD and DH)

brother's scrapbook started

seating plan and table names (just waiting for details from bride and groom)

prepare for a wedding open day on 6th September

6 thank you cards for my box

6 baby boy cards for my box

I also managed to get an hour in the garden this afternoon. It was looking lovely before we went away but it is such a mess all of a sudden. DH got the grass cut front and back and I decided to chop, sorry , prune back the Passion Flower (which covers two sheds!), the rose (which covers the arbour and half of the bottom of the gards) and the Jasmine which has taken over the other half :) Alan Titchmarsh would have a fit if he saw me with my secateurs LOL I'm hoping to get out tomorrow and start weeding the borders, in between working and after taking DD to town in the morning for her new school uniform.

Thanks for reading, back soon. xx
