Good Tuesday Morning Ladies,
As I am writing this it is 01.52am and we have just got home, we surprised our girls (all 3 of them) with tickets to a see 'Fifth Harmony' (an American girl group that Sophie and Lucy follow), I'm pretty sure most of you won't of heard of them, I needed educating, haha, I have heard of one of their latest songs it goes on about "work, work, work, work" !! Anyway we picked Becca up from work and made the very frustrating journey through the centre of London to the O2 Arena, lovely Venue, they had an amazing time. We left there at about eleven and got home at about 01.40am, after two major diversions on route home. Frustratingly, had the traffic been better we could have called in to visit Brenda & John, but as it worked out we wouldn't have got to them until about 9pm!! Shame, I was quite excited at the thought.
It was all worth it to see the smiles on their faces, it was the first time at a 'pop concert' for all of them. I think they will have no voice and ringing ears tomorrow!
Now onto today's card, another surprise!! To me anyway, Matt called me at 5 on Saturday and said "its Sophie and Nicks engagement party tonight, can you do me a card"? I had an hour and a half to start from scratch. So I went for my trusty layout, I decided on a dark silver and white theme as engagement cards are for the guys too, I used CE Heart Lattice Embossing Folder, CE Happily Ever After Die set from one of Sue's recent releases, perfect with the hearts in the corners, it looked lost on the card on its own though, so I created another layer by matting two sizes of the Noble Adorned Square dies together in silver and white and popped the focal piece on top, it looked much better, the sentiment was just typed into word using 'Harrington' font, I like that one as its pretty without being too girly. I added a Satin Bow and die cut some Spellbinders Cinch and Go flowers by Becca Feekin out of the metallic/shimmery grey card, to which I added a sparkle to the centre.
I then made a box to fit the card and used the same colours to make a sentiment, which I die cut with a heart shaped die, I then added some peel offs the edges of the box. All finished in just over an hour, which is pretty good going for me!
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
