Tag it #2...

Good Morning…

How is everyone today…?

This weather is so barmy! I wish it would make its mind up! One day I am in shorts and the next its woolly jumpers!  I suppose I shouldn’t complain any weather is good for crafting!

I wanted to share with you today a commission order I received the other week.  After my post showing you two cards I’d made using Pink Petticoats wheelbarrows I’d been asked to make a card suitable for a Great Aunt.  I thought that they would be perfect – lots of soft pastel shades for a pretty card.  So this is what I came up with.  Using the same layout as before, but a different colour combination -   I used bakers twine and a lovely lilac button to finish the card and after my recent placing of sentiments I decided to use the tab style for this card.

What do you think?

But wait… that’s not all…

My friend from school makes cakes.  They are amazing.  She makes the most beautiful cupcakes and cake pops.  They are so amazing she supplies them to Carrington Cafes in Cambridgeshire.  I got a message from her the other day asking if I could make some tags for a few birthday orders she has coming up.  As I am always up for a challenge I could hardly say no!  After sending me the colours she was using these are what I made. I die cut flowers from some paper scraps and stuck them together and added a button and bakers twine.  I stitched round the edge of the kraft card and the coloured card with the sentiment, punched a hole and threaded the ribbon. What do you think? Hopefully she’ll use me again for more tag designs.

So that’s all for today folks.  I shall be back tomorrow with another commission piece, bring your sunnies, it’s a bit bright.

Take care
