As  promised here is the day invitation, I have only just started to put them together, I still have to get the inserts.   Again all the bride to be own design.  I have just made them up.   Can you tell she loves her horses?  

Again  her choice.   She decided on the green horseshoe instead of a white one or any other colour.

They are simple in design, but it's making sure I have them right.   I would have loved for the inserts to have been done as I could have popped them in their tissue paper then in to the boxes.  But that isn't going to happened just yet, but at least I can get them made up.

Thank you for calling in to have a look, I will hopefully get them completed by the end of the week or if not the beginning of the following week.   I have had a few birthday cards to make as well, plus I was wanting to make some bit box cards up, so Anna could give them to her piano teacher Mary.  Mary spends so much time with Anna making sure she is going to get her grade 5.not that she think there will any problem on that front.    Anna in Mary eyes is a natural so of coarse she will give her a lot of time,  so seeing how Mary still writes letters and send cards we decided it would be a useful little gift.  Now if it had been Beth I would have given her the bit box and a few prefold cards and let get get on with it.  Anna she is s different kettle of fish and wouldn't do them.

Nothing much going on here, the weather has been miserable today.  Was going over to see Tammy as its her birthday today, but they decided to go for a walk with the boys up at Dunkeld then go and have lunch.   So there was no point of us travelling the 50 miles round trip if they were going to be back.   They have got the boys up to doing a 10 mile walk.   So depending on what walk they decide to do and the time it takes.

Well I am going off now to tidy the kitchen and then I am off to have a shower and get my pjs on.
Then it's feet up.

I will let Beth see all the lovely comments you have left her about her friends card, she will be made up.  I know she will read everyone and then reread them.

  2. Gail. When Gillian's friend saw the horse head die and the horseshoe she just had to have them. Her horses are her babies. I think if she could ride side saddle on her wedding day to get to the church she will. Hazel x

  8. HI Hazel,
    These are stunning but to say that they are simple is a bit much. If the folding is a bit off, or the insert not just quite right, they would not be the beautiful invites that they are.

  13. Hi Hazel
    Can't say I've seen a horse themed wedding invite before but there's the joy in having someone like you customise them.
    The inside is as great as the outside so I'm sure the bride will be over the moon with them.
    Best wishes.

  14. WOW! Love the way you've used this die as the gatefold front piece. And perfectly clever to add the bride's love of horses into the mix. It looks very original & unique. Pretty too. Love the inside treatment just as much. You are deserving of a huge hug for all this hard work and such attention to precise detail. The card is simply breath-taking. Hope your weather improves. TFS & Hugs

  15. I think it's great to see somebody who "bucks the trend" with their stationery (oops, the pun was not intentional!). And the beauty of having somebody like you making them is the bride gets exactly what she wants - which wouldn't be possible with commercially bought stationery. Well done Hazel. Hugs Christine xx
