JAI Fussy cutting

The Just add Ink challenge for this week is fussy cutting. So what is that? It's cutting out intricate pieces of paper. Adding to the challenge my friend Kim makes wonderful cards so I to come up with something special for her birthday. Quite a while ago I recalled seeing flowers on a dressing table card so I thought I would have a go. This is what I came up with.

Making the mirror image took me a while to figure out it's not often we want to show the back of flowers. I also had to think about where the light was theoretically coming from. I also made the mirror image a lighter shade.

The Royal Wedding

Like most women I love a good wedding, so there was no better reason for a champagne breakfast than the Royal wedding. A few of the girls from work came over on Saturday morning to watch the wedding I had recorded the night before. Many of us resisting a sneak peek before hand.

I decorated the house in red, white and blue.

With the Queen, princesses, and ladies in attendance a good security guard was in attendance.

We all pitched in for a yummy breakfast.

Here comes the bride!

Stephanie made us a great cake! Yummy peanut butter frosting is the best!

The Queen cut the cake.
Here we are giving a royal wave!

I made some bride and groom gift boxes with home made fudge and cocoanut ice.

As you can see I expanded on Chantells box idea fro our colour challenge.
A great time was had by all!
