More To Share...

We had a busy weekend this past weekend.
On Saturday we attended a friend's 40th Birthday which was a High Tea. 
Just had to share these pics as the table looked stunning and the decor looked fabulous.
Don't you just love that tea pot with the roses?

The cake was elegant and gorgeous.
Just what the birthday girl had hoped her Aunt would make.

Loved the beautiful dainty teacups and plates.
If you follow me on IG, I have a board named Passion for Teacups... love them!  
I have quite a selection of my own. 
The little box was a gift for all to take home with them and had 3 Lindt ball choccies inside. 
I am saving mine to eat on a special occasion! 

And of course I had to take a pic of those gorgeous heart-shaped sugar pops.
To die for, right?? lol 

I made this card for the birthday girl from her work colleagues, 
as we also had a special function for her there.  
This is the card I made using my new Apery Elle Stamps and co-ordinating Dies.

OK, so let me share what I've been making these past months.  
I was asked to make 30 mini Thank You cards and came up with this clean and simple, 
yet elegant design. 
It's easiest to select 3 designs and then to make 10 of each, but I guess you know that right?

For me, when making cards on order, presentation is everything.
I had lovely tissue paper at home and bought a box from Merrypak to lay the cards
inside. My customer loved them! Yay, makes me so happy when they are happy. 

This is what it looked like closed, inside the box.  My DD took them to work as it
was for a colleague of hers, so I thankfully did not have to post them. 

I was also commissioned to make some Birthday cards and the new stitched dies
I had ordered came at the right time. Here are a pics of the cards I made.
Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

That's it from me for today.  I'll be back to share some more news with you later.

All of those cards are just wonderful Sharon! I love the pretty tea cups and pot. All so dainty. I know you had a great time. Sorry I haven't been around.....Lots of things going on and then my computer decided to die. Slowly but surely getting back into it all again.
