It's a lovely sunny day with us here today, a tad on the windy side but as they say, "great for the washing"!
Time for a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight out hostess is Carole. Carole would like to see a Card or a Tag, with matching Gift Wrap, Bag or Box.
Recently a very good friend celebrated her silver wedding anniversary and so I made a card with a matching gift wallet.
The hearts on the card were cut with my Silhouette machine from thick wrapping paper, which I then matted onto white card and silver miri, then added some bling and a PC generated sentiment.
The money wallet is made from the same paper and I just added a fancy blingy embellishment - cause she's that kind of gal!
Our sponsors for this challenge are:
The Paper Shelter with a $20 gift certificate
and Woodware Craft Collection with a £12 gift voucher
This weekend my husband's boss was over from Houston and so we took him out for the day to visit one of the local Whisky distilleries for a bit of whisky tasting. (I'm not a whisky drinker so I was the chauffeur!) Then we went to Balmoral Castle (where the Queen likes to have her summer holidays!)
The Balmoral Estate is situated right by the River
and this is one of the "Queen's Trees" - thought you would like it Valerie - it's looking at you!
Okay folks, thanks for bearing with me through this long post. Do pop on over to Crafty Cardmakers and see the lovely cards and gift boxes the ladies have made.
Take good care and see you soon.
