My Creative Space

The space odyssey is back - thanks to Kirsty for hosting again this year!

This week I have been playing around with paper, lace and buttons. We wanted the placecards for our wedding dinner to be really personal, so I've decided to create photo cards. Brown for the girls, white for the boys. Quilted background sewn on to the card, and photo sewn on to the mini-quilt for the boys, lace and buttons for the ladies. I am not sure about the stamp writing, in fact I am pretty sure I don't like it,  so I think I will borrow my inlaws' old typewriter and write names in small across the top. This weekend I shall be mostly making baby quilt backgrounds!

Also featured are my favourite little birdie salt and pepper shakers from Dorothy and Evelyn - I love them so much I haven't been able to bring myself to actually put salt and pepper in them.

Here are some detailed shots of the cards.

That's a huge effort. I reckon I'd probably manage the two & that would be it for me. Good on you.
