A Month Of Posts ... To Canada!

Morning All,

Firstly I'd just like to say a big hello to all our new followers and a huge thank you for all your lovely comments. I will get round to replying very soon, but I'm a little bit pre-occupied right now! Your comments have brought a smile to our faces and made writing these posts even more of a pleasure.

Ok, so down to business then. Yesterday the sun was shining, the music was playing and where we? Crafting of course ... only now we're crafting outside in the garden so as to not miss out on the sunshine!! Yep, not only has our craft work area spread to take up half the kitchen, but now it's spread out to the garden too ... Ooo well what else is a garden for if not to craft in? haha! Today's set to be another sunny one, so we've already set up camp outside and once this post is written you will find us lounging in the sun with a cup of tea and the odd ice lolly or two! Well, when I say us I mean Mum and I as Lady is visting her Nanny today to hand deliver some very special invitations whilst Crusty is at work in between the ovens no doubt with her head in the freezer (sucks to be you!) hahaha!

Anyway, a while back we were asked to make a very special card that needed to be sent to Canada. The receiver Jess is Canadian who married the Son of a very special friend of ours, Jackie. Jess is a fan of all things British and is apparently practising her "posh" British accent for when she visits Jackie! There couldn't have been a better time to be asked to make this card. With the impending jubilee there's plenty of "British" ranges to choose from. Ordinarily when we're asked to make a card for someone it's either an 8x8, A5 or 6x6 card that gets made. However, as this was a very "special" card and we'd just received our Docrafts portobello stash Mum and I got a little carried away and came up with this ....

Sums up everything British doesn't it?? ... well not quite, because then we made this ... 

As cute as Bobby from the Nitwits collection is we still thought there was something missing, so we made this ... 

See now it says Happy Birthday, so it's a proper British card right? ... well actually as I said before we have the Nitwits "Tour of London" collection and there was one more thing just screaming to be used, so we made this ... 

See how could we not use the little Royal Guard! Added to the cute soldier ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, there's no mistaking it's British now is there ... well that's what we thought until we came up with this ... 

What's Britain without it's "Cuppa". So as you can see we got a little bit carried away, but howcould we not when we had so many things to play with! Problem was, now we'd made them we couldn't choose between them! Solution? .....

Stick them all together as one big card!!! 

Today is Jess's birthday. The card should have made it's way to Canada by now, so hopefully Jess is loving her card as much as we loved making it. I know we won't get to see how happy she is with it, but we do know Jackie was "over the moon" with it. Happy Birthday Jess. 

Ooo and one last thing before I go out to the sunny sunshine! To add to the jubilee theme today I thought I'd pop an extra project in. Whilst busy with all her felting jobs, Mum came up with these ... 

Jubilee rosettes! Well they look like rosettes don't they? But if you look closer you'll see they're differing sized flowers that make up those rosettes! 

Ooo and not for getting of course the union jack ribbon courtesy of Crafty Ribbons which makes this another entrant into the Crafty Ribbons Flower Challenge and confirms they're rosette status! I'll be adding one of these to my jubilee felt heart whilst celebrating the jubilee weekend!
