Wedding Table Plan

I have been quite busy rushing around the country visiting relatives, but have just had time to complete this Table Plan for friends of my daughter who are soon to be married.
I thought that as it is very close to Christmas, mistletoe might be rather appropriate!
The colour of the background ties in with the rest of the stationery and the colour of the bridesmaids dresses.
I wish them all happiness!

It doesn't seem like a week ago since my last posting on my Blog... goodness how the time flies! My excuse might be that I've had my daughter and my dear little granddaughter Daisy staying for a few days. I thought that you might like to see a picture of her! Both my husband and I are besotted!

ABC Challenge O ~ Oval

I couldn't resist playing with my new Martha Stewart border punch. I think it's so pretty.
I discovered that I had a stamp which co-ordinated well with this Anita's backing paper and I just had to put it into an Oval shape for the ABC Challenge.
I was quite pleased with the overall effect.

Papertake Weekly Challenge Dawny's sketch #1

I had the packet of chipboard shapes from a Goody Box I bought from Creativity Life Magazine, and until now hadn't found a use for them. Here I have used both a bracket and a cupcake, maybe I'll get around to using more of the pack now!

Papermania paper, Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder and flowers. I don't know where I got the sentiment stamp from, but I use it loads as it's so neat.

The best thing is my new Martha Stewart lace doily punch which arrived yesterday. I love it!
