Sorry I've not blogged for a few days but I ended up at A&E last week as my pain was so severe. Its a little better now as the pain clinic have started me on yet more tablets, I'll be rattling soon lol. So, I thought I'd pop along whilst I can to show you something very special to me.
None of my daughters are crafters like me so, when they need anything doing its always "Mum can you do this or that" I bet you all know that feeling don't you...lol However this time things were different, Nicola has finally booked little mans christening. In anticipation of the event I ordered the stamp set My Special Day which arrived on Monday 6 February, much to Nicolas delight. Over the last few weeks we had discussed different layouts for the invitation and RSVP such as a wallet type card, a fan like card etc. Nicola finally decided on the fan type card.
We decided that the big shot Top Note die was perfect for the job so I managed to do a few samples so that she could show her partner and make it a joint decision. All the samples involved heat embossing which Nicola has never done and was horrified at the prospect of doing them herself...lol
Anyway, Nicola took the big shot home and some Whisper White card so that she could get started on the cards and wording. Luckily I had a template where I had cut 2 Top Note dies from a A5 piece of card so she used that to get her spacing right. Then last Wednesday she came up and, because I was still in so much pain, had to face doing the heat embossing herself !!!!! This is how the cards came out.....
