And now for something completely different...

I've had the mammoth task of making up my best friends wedding invitations.
{She's getting married in September and i'll be a bridesmaid, just got the dress and shoes delivered for trying on, so all go here lol}
I started them way back in the middle of last year.
After doing invitations once before, and wanting to kill someone by the end as the repetition was driving me mad i wanted to try and space this lot out, make up elements in batches, like cutting the card one session, tying the ribbons and ring another session to break it all up, but never the less it still ended up driving me round the twist, but i now have the pleasure to say i have completed 50 of the 80 i need to make {the last 30 are the evening invites}
There quite simple in design but were still alot of work.
And here they are.... phew...

For the inserts i wanted to jazz up the plainness so i punched the bottom of each one with one of my fiskers border punches, and added a little heart peel-off to each envelope.

There all batched up and ready to be shipped out Monday... now to crack on with the rest...!!
