It's Official

Hello Everyone,

It is now official...I'm a new design team member of Crafty Sentiments Design 
I was thrilled to bits to get an e-mail a few weeks ago, asking if I would like to join CSD and now it's official, I'm in, and we get started the first Wednesday in February excited.

I can remember the thrill of my first DT postiton, and a comment was made, "first you get on one and then another and another" and remember thinking, no way, I could only cope with one....well Mary J  you were

So, I had a great day yesterday...finished work early, came home, got cleaned up, and plopped down at the computer to do my thing...knock on the door!!!

A lady was there, and told me that one of my friends sent her round as I make wedding invitations, and she was very interested in seeing 'what else can you come up with'.....

So we went through folders and such looking at samples...then she noticed the cone tree that I posted yesterday...after a lengthy disscussion about all sorts of  wedding stuff,and a phone call to the bride.. she decided that she wants me to make 20 white cone trees for the wedding tables...AND..the invitations.....and placed and order for Christmas cards all the same but not CAS, she wants foo foo cards....No pressure lady....

What is pressure, the wedding is going to be in 4 weeks...and only just sorting out invites...her words.."it's only a small wedding, more family than friends...80 in total"...

Onto todays project....popcorn boxes

Cute huh!! My daughter wanted them for her staff, and made all her chocolates and fudge balls etc, stuffed red tissue inside then the chocolates, and promptly forgot to take the photo for me when they were finished....but you get the ides.
The boxes were found at the Warehouse, and only needed the word 'popcorn' removed so out came the smoking cuttlebug, and away I went.
Added a few holly leaves and blings...done. Each side has a different sentiment..

Okay...thats it. I' ve yabbered long enough...Thanks for stopping by, and will see you tomorrow...will be cutting and folding all afternoon when I get home...80!!! good grief.
