Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

They are Coming Along...

Well we have just over 100 completed and going to have a work party with some friends to complete the rest today hopefully. In the top picture are the components to the invites. The 3 little pieces stack and go into a pocket on the left side when opened. The main invite part is on the right. Close it all up add a picture and wrap in a ribbon (this is what she wants) but I think I am going to just add a bow. (Much easier).
Thanks for looking and please let me know what you think. No I really am not in the market of producing these for money. Way too much time involved. I love my daughter very much is why I am doing them for her.

Far left with picture of Christina and Matt was our prototyle made in December. The one tied with the Teal ribbon is the final design. I tried 10-12 times to get the stamped hydrangeas to look the way I wanted them, then I copied them, onto the white CS. I have 100 all assembled just need to ties them together, threfore there are still 150 to go. Now do I think I saved money. Not sure but they were fun to do. GOOD think I only have one daughter to do these for. I will post better picture of the final sas soon as my battery camera's recharge. Had just enough to take the picture above.
