WHAT A DIFFERENCE SUNSHINE MAKES
Writing this rather later than usual, but this gorgeous weather makes me feel very cheerful and not at all worried about being behind. Isn't it incredible what a little bit of sunshine can do for us? Lots more enthusiasm, get up and go, stop putting things off - roll on spring and summer.
As always a busy week and I need to check back through my diary to see what I have been doing. I have taken to writing as much as possible in my diary or notebook as it is so easy to forget everything I have done or need to do. Rather like tying a knot in my hankie (not the same with tissues though) and forgetting what the knot represents.
A busy week for orders. I finished off the Titanic/Railway set one mentioned last week, and am currently finishing off an order for a Mother's Day card:
I have some more decoupage roses to add, wording and the insert and some trimming to complete. The plan is to finish this one today as I have two others to complete by tomorrow morning.
In addition to Mother's Day, I also had an order for Evening Invitation Acceptance cards. The brief was fairly open with the only request of the main colouring to be light green. I have checked with my customer and they are happy for me to display an example here:
The base is a 4" square card, with a pale green sheet added to the front. On top of this I have added a white frame around a similar green sheet on which I have printed the required information. Simple, effective and my client is very pleased with their order.
As my 'weekend' post appears to be getting later and later, I will make this a very short one, but please drop in on the Handmade Monday bloggers to see what they have been doing over the last week.
I will be back next Sunday - hopefully on time. Milly will be blogging tomorrow with news of the kittens I am currently fostering.
Enjoy the week everyone
