I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I have managed to do some crafting this morning. I was up early because I couldn't sleep so I have been sat at the table crafting.
When I got married my Auntie Chanelle made me this and I couldn't stop looking at it. It was beautiful and I would never think to have a go at anything like this, she is so clever and has great ideas. My Mum has even saved it because she would like to use it as a vase for flowers, she liked it that much.
My biggest fan, MY MUM asked if I would be able to have a go at one. Her Friend gets married in September and she said that she would love to give this as a gift like my Auntie Chanelle did for me. I was unsure, but after collecting a couple of boxes to see which would be best to try I decided to have a go and here it is......
This was my practice run; however it won't be wasted because my Mum works with someone whose sister gets married soon so I have done this for her. I used my new Magnolia wedding stamps, but used some cheap papers that I got from the last NEC because I didn't dare use my Magnolia paper in case it went wrong.
I used my circle & heart nestie and actually followed a great tutorial that Kim did in the Fairy Tale Magnolia Ink magazine. I added some flowers that I recently bought from the Craft Den.
I used my MS branch punch and also added a lovely pin with some beads that are my new obsession.
I know that mine is not a patch on my Auntie Chanelle's or the one that Kim made but I am really pleased with it. Hope you like it.
