Hello Friends,

First of all, thank you all for your lovely comments over on Sam's blog on was sad for it to be the last one for a while, but family comes first and I know Sam will love having time with her daughter, new baby and husband. It was a very hard decision for her, but not one she's in any danger of regretting I suspect.

I have no idea where the time is going at the moment, all I seem to be thinking about is  our volunteering event on Monday at work, so have had little time to craft and what time I have had has mostly been grabbing some time out in the craft barn or at the sewing machine making decorations for Christmas and Autumn...we also have the second of our August workshops tonight. The groups are making a pop up box  card, but if you recall, no one on either mine or Amy's group actually finished their cards last time.

Box cards can be time consuming, so I have done some of the stamping for them in the hope it helps to speed things up and hopefully we'll have some photos to share tomorrow!

I'm sorry I have been slow to get around your blogs this week and it will no doubt be tomorrow before I get to look at them again, as I have scheduled this apologies!

Today I am sharing another box card that I  have made for a wedding are going to next week, I made a similar one for a wedding Tom's parents went to recently and apparently the couple were thrilled with it..phew! 

I used Sissix dies for the flowers, Spellbinders Classic Hearts,  Spellbinders Papillon and Twisted Hearts M-Bossability folder for the embossing . The 'Wedding Day' stamp is a Creative Expressions stamp and the  Mr & Mrs is from Stamps by Chloe.   I heat embossed them both in silver. To finish I added some tulle and ribbon and a sparkly button.

As with most couples now they want money or gift cards for presents, so I made a gift card/money/cheque holder for the back of the card, with a flap and tulle to hold it together.

That's all for today, thank you so much for stopping by!

Love and Hugs
