Birthday Cards

Quite a few of my friends had birthdays in the last month or so, and I'm only now getting a chance to blog the cards I made them and wish them a (very) belated Happy Birthday.

I designed the background paper for this card myself for a challenge last year, and found it hard to cut into it. I'm glad I did though - I like the soft colours and the felt swirls from the Scrapbook Store are just so lovely to play with.

This is another background I created myself and although its actually quite bright for me I enjoyed experimenting and playing up the shabby chic feel.

I desparately wanted to play with this netting which came from a fabulous bunch of flowers I was given. Although pink and blue aren't colours I'd normally put together, I was so pleased with the richness of the finished piece.

Wedding Day

Sorry its been so long Blog friends, but it has been a rather hectic couple of months.

Our wedding on 22nd December 2008 was just amazing. I had the perfect day, I couldn't stop smiling, and never wanted it to end. And now I have the most wonderful memories of the day.

We had a very relaxing christmas, and went to Egypt on honeymoon - I promise to bore you with many photos in the coming weeks.

Thanks to everyone for all your lovely thoughts, wishes and gifts - it all made for a very special time for us.
