A thing of beauty is a joy forever

Hello Everyone,

Wednesday morning, and awoke with a start, flew out of bed, switched the kettle on, flicked on the computer, uncovered the bird, flew to the loo, made my coffee......then I thought...it's very dark this morning...well at 3.30am..I suppose it would be...grrrr....no wonder the dog only opened one eye and gave me a disgruntled look...ah, well I was up so stayed up...and what happened...blogger froze on me and I had the message..'.you are currently not following any feeds'...for goodness sake....they would not come back, no matter what I did...so I coloured in till 5am...then I had access to my blog.

I have a card to share today.....it was a special request from a lady whos mother in law is getting re-married..got that...she wants flowers and black a silver card, and can I incorporatwe a 'V' as this will be what her new last name will start with...got that too...and a sign to show guests  to sign the guest book...totally understood....can I do it in 2 weeks...no worries there...so set to it,made it, loved it, very pretty....thankfully she paid me...and now the wedding is OFF!!

Oh Dear!!

Heres my card, box, and sign.







No image or colouring with this one, I just wanted the black whie and silver to show and of course all the flowers and home made pins.
The lovely wedding stamp was stamped in versamark and silver embossed...a large stamp from rubbadubbadoo..made in NZ I just noticed..all the flat flowers and tuile flwers out of one packet from Rosies studio..roses from WOC.

The pearl hearts from the wedding section at the warehouse, and the 'V' is on the sign.

So there is my prettiness for today, and the wedding is still off....if I knew I would have kept the project for my use, but they had already taken it...shame.



For more news...look what came yesterday...early.. before I went to work...




My beautiful candy from  VICKY         Thank you so much Vicky, it is gorgeous, I even took it to work and showed 'My lady'...actually opened it there so she could get the full buzz....and rubber banded around this yumminess were these.....



My prize from the bloghop at Sugar nellie last week...wow that was quick..

Welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining me...

Well, must head off shortly, might have time for a quick cuppa, and after school, I'm going to a recorder recital that my G/son [7] is playing in..that should be fun...now where are my ear plugs!!...hey!...I've heard them practising...I need ear plugs when there are 20 of them blowing their little hearts out..lol..

Luv CHRISSYxx

WOW these are just beautiful! Thank you for stopping by my blog to see my ornaments. Thank you even more for leaving such a wonderful comment. Yes, the baubbles come in two pieces. I just cut a circle to fit and then decorated both sides. Added a little fake snow to the front and glued them together. I ordered them from Hobby Lobby. I think I will be buying a few more and make one for each grand child. They look far better in person than I could capture on the camera. Thanks again for stopping by and hugs to you.
