Two orders from others made

I'm quite please really these two orders were on recommendation. The recent cards I made for Sam and Sally prompted this lady to order. I think she said they are going to Australia, so no orders from there then..............LOL

BUT..............the lady in question is a hairdresser, so you never know if she is pleased she could pass my name's hoping!!

Some catching up to do

But I am in front of myself now...............The cards for Steph and the Mum card are for later in the year. Sam's is an A4 size and is tomorrow and Sally's is Sunday.

All Finished

Here are the wedding invites all finished. All 90 of them!

Thank you Joolse for all your help, I've packed them in 10's. I hope you don't mind but I've followed your lead and wrapped them in a paper strip that says "Val's designs" It does finish them off.

I also bought a Wedding keepsake box to pack them in, I thought it would be a nice idea and they could use it afterwards. There was a bit of panic when I didn't think they would all fit, but with a bit of shuffling here and there they all went in. I'm really pleased with the result............All in all a good weeks work!

90 MIL broken into.

Heard yesterday that MIL who is 90 was broken into overnight.There was no sign of a forced entry, so whether the door wasn't latched properly or whether someone let themselves in from the key which was in the key safe, we are not sure. ( The key safe is a box outside, with a key in, but needs a combination to get at the key)

Luckily he went straight to her purse where she had her £500 pension money plus £60 more.She came down the following morning to find the contents of her purse all over the sofa.Nothing else was touched.Part of me thinks he got what he that was enough, so at least the house wasn't ransacked, and he didn't need to go upstairs where she was sleeping.

But the door was shut when she got up - What burglar shuts the door behind them? And would they bother to put the key back in the key safe?She has carers in each day, plus a young cleaner and they all know the keysafe number............I don't know what to think at the moment.

We are just glad she is ok. She has always said if they want to get in, they will. She is a very strong and independant woman luckily and I don't think this will faze her for long.SIL is staying for a few days as we live miles away. She is arranging for her pension to be paid into the bank from now on so no money will be kept in the house.

The police have been and scenes of crime, but there weren't any fingerprints ( they aren't stupid)

I just hope he doesn't come back..................Apparently very often they do!!

Wedding invites

The bride has now chosen which invite she wanted and I've had the order........................30 day invites and 60 evening invites. I have started and have already made the daytime ones. And will start the second batch of 20 evening ones today.

A selection ... Mother's day....Birthdays

Several cards made this week, I don't know how I've found the time to be honest............All I can say is...........It's a good job I'm retired.

A former scrubber!!

Just a couple of orders I've made this week. A diamond wedding anniversary and a birthday/retirement card. I am trying to get them all done so I will be able to get the wedding invites started.

All being well I will know what she has chosen and how many tonight.

I've since found out it's to be a register office wedding, so chances are not many invites will be needed, maybe a few more for the evening!
