2nd Post Today

As promised here is the 2nd post of the day..... & the reason I have got nothing done so far this week. Every couple of years the school Julian attends holds a mock wedding to raise money for the local hospice. It is all part of their RE topic. This year it is Julian's class that are involved & he very kindly asked me a few weeks ago if I would like to make the invites. Well I agreed & sent in a sample that I made & I was going to be contacted to let me know when they would be needed by & if anything needed changing.
Well on Monday he walks in from school & announces that they need to be made for his RE lesson on Thursday.... so I had 2 days plus a few hours to get 50 invites created!!!!!!
Needless to say there was a quick trip to Hobbycraft & The Range but all 50 invites went with him to school this morning & here they are....

The corners were stamped with a Papermania stamp that I have to say I removed from the block & cut in half as I only needed part of the stamp. I added gems to the flowers in each corner. The middle piece was edged with gold ink & I stamped the centre using the Wedding Wishes stamp. I added the gold bow & stuck down.

Here is a close up
I added the details to the back of the invite but haven't taken any photos as it included names etc xx Clare x
