MOJO 145

Yippe mojo time... this time I made two cards.... on the butterfly/snail card I used flock on the images so they are soft and furry.... also tried pleating my ribbon (without knowing how) it didn't work out very well but never mind!

Wedding invitations

My brother who has recently moved from London to Australia, is getting married in Feb 2011 in Tauranga, New Zealand.
He and his fiancee Cherie asked if I would make thier wedding invitations. Thanks to modern technology i.e. skype, we were able to go back and forth with ideas and designs and come up with something they really liked. The theme for the wedding is picnic and New Zealand so we have incorporated red gingham ribbon and photos of NZ fauna....
I made 45 invites and 50 thank you cards.... all boxed up and posted today....

She's so thoughtful as has made the card using my favourite colours, pink and blue and with the beautiful new butterfly set. It's such a pretty card and very well designed, check out her blog on my links to see other lovely cards she has been making...
Thanks Rel!
