I could have wept buckets last night, my son asked me to knit 2 polo inserts for his nephew and niece,
I finished the little boys and as I had some wool over made him a little bobble hat to match then I started on the littles girls, came to sew the polo up and found I had knitted one side inside out, have now got to unpick it and start again.

Wedding Placement Cards and Faviour Box

The wedding theme was green so I sprayed some green card with Crafters Companion glitter spray,
I edged the white name card with a silver peel off then stuck a lily on the bottom corner.
The faviour boxes had shredded green paper inside with a red covered chocolate heart then I tied some green organza ribbon round the lid and tucked a lily in the centre.
The cards were displayed on a silver bell which also became a gift for the guests.

Wedding cake

This is the wedding cake I made for my Son and New Daughter in law.
They wanted one that would represent them, and yes they keep chickens hence the cartoon type which I made out of sugar paste as was all the flowers. The house was made out of thin ply wood.
It was a great talking point and everyone said how unusual it was.

wedding invite

Embossed card with plain circle where I attached my home made bouquet round the circle is embossed flowers and butterflies which I chalked with pale green glitter chalk.

Save the date

Save the date card for my son's wedding.  I selected a backing paper from My Craft Studio then changed the colour to the right green then I punched out the heart shape and inserted a photo of the happy couple then added their names.
