This card is for a friend of mine who's son is getting married at the end of the month. The topper is a lilli of the valley one, I am loving the lilli of the valley things at the moment. The backing paper is gorgeous it is embossed and glittered, i love it, I bought it from the Hobby House, must go and buy some more hahaha. Now to the flower, my very special friend Jane gave me a demonstration on how to make this. The flower idea was from the Magnolia Book. The flower is made of layers of tissue paper then cut out with the circle nestability, I have put a brad in the middle to hold them all together. Then sprayed the flower with water and when dry scrunched it up and added some stickles.

Yesterday I had a lovely day spent with Jane, I am going to London at the end of the month to my niece's 30th party, as it is a black tie party I needed something to wear. I don't do long dresses rather have leggings/t shirt or jeans. Anyway had a dress rehearsal with Jane and feel so much better about the outfit now.

We later went for a drive to Tilly's craft shop in Immingham and bought lots of lovely papers and other items. Both Jane and I were amazed that the prices were so low. I can highly recommend a trip to this craft shop.

I will hopefully be back later with some more cards as i have got a busy day in the craft room. Craft and loud music (Nickleback) fabulous day.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Thanks for reading
