Rock a bye baby

My friend's daughter gave birth to a baby boy in the early hours of Wednesday morning and I made the cot for her to give to her daughter. It's made from an Arty Farty template which my mum bought about three years ago. I made a pink one when it first came and have had it sat in my craft room for a long time as I use it as a sample. It is so sweet.
Exploding Box
The box was also commissioned this week, for a friend's 60th birthday, by her sister. I decided to give it a 'vintagey' feel and am relly pleased with the way it turned our. The lady came to pick it up last night and had a slight sniffle when she read some of the little sayings etc.
The following card is from us to the same lady
Brenda Pinnick papers
Prima flowers
Ribbon Oasis ribbon
Papermania rub on
flat back crystals
DH's anniversary card. It was our wedding anniversary on Thursday and it was absolutely mad here till about two oclock. I was sat quite happily putting the exploding box together when (in true crafter's form) I remembered I hadn't made his card...........and this was at 10 past 4 in the afternoon!!! He got in from work at 4.35 and his card was propped against the kettle as though it had been there all day! ;)

As well as working all hours, DD1's wedding dress arrived on Tuesday and she has been round twice to try it on :) I won't let her take it home cos she'll be doing housework in it LOL
And that folks is this weeks work so far. I now need to make a wedding card for DH to take with him to work this evening.
Take care and thanks for looking and all your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.
