Good afternoon.  Welcome and thank you for taking the time to come in and see what I have been up to.    Well I am glad to report that all the day and evening invites are complete, Gillian came yesterday and put the last of the day time together. I was the helper main job putting on the foam pads and peeling the backs off, ou forget how long that takes.   I also had to die cut a couple of bits an oops moment happened.   I was left to " waff" as Gillian put it putting the cards in tissue then into their boxes, I cut the labels for these this morning so that's another little job off the list, now the two of them can get the labels written up.     Gillian wants to have thank you cards at the ready, some little simple ones and then others.   She has a lot of patients whom she knows will give them cards, they aren't allowed to take gifts from there NHS patients. So these little cards are enough to just give thank them for there card.   Gillian and Andrew don't want gifts as they are just happy for friends to come to their party and bring their own drink ( hall liecence costs an arm and a leg)   They will supply soft drinks

Very simple cards made out of waste card from a " First Eddition" pad of 12x12. The heart die is from a set by Die'sire and the "Thank You " stamp is from Stamping Up. I got nine 4x4 cards from an A3 sheet of hammered white card, so very inexpensive, I also had a load of 4x4 envelopes in my box so lots of things used up.  
Tammy just phoned I had sent her a photo of these and she has put her order in for some of these  with "Happy Birthday" " Thank You" and " Just For You" 
As she said just right to keep in the drawer for those times when you have forgotten to get ones made.
So I think that will be a little project for a rainy day???  

Now Beth said to say thank you for all you kind comments, mummy loved her card, Anna decided on looking at Beth's again her card was the " Pitts" as she put it so she got me to put one together for her.

This one was made from one of the pads of card from "The Work" it's lovely to work with.  Just a little 5x5 card, very simply made.
Well I better make a move, we are all ( the whole family) out for High Tea later so I will have to go and find something to wear.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

  7. Hi Hazel
    Glad you are on the other side of those invites.
    The thank you cards are super but you know I'm a sucker for FE papers.
    High tea. . . . . .used to do that when visiting Mum and Dads friends in Glenrothes. I remember going somewhere in or near Kettlebridge, which I don't think is a million miles from you.
    Hope you had a lovely time.

  14. Hi Hazel,
    well isn't that a lot off your mind the invites all done and dusted.
    I know I really breathed a sigh of relief after doing mine for my Granddaughter's wedding.
    It seems like a really endless job at the time.
    Love your little thank you cards, they are fab, and cleverly designed too.
    As they say less is more, and they are a wonderful example of that.
    As you know I am not very good at less is more, and wish I was.
    My Granddaughter loved her Nappy Cake by the way, but I came home from the shower feeling very sick, and spent the evening in bed.
    I can't understand it as there were only little cakes small sandwiches, and a scone to eat.
    You know what theses posh places give you is not much more like samples. lol.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  15. Beautiful Hazel

    Love & hugs
