5 sleeps to go

Gone are the days when Mum goes to the wedding with a big handbag and a plastic bag to put any cards or presents you may get into them. I have been suitable advised that you need a card box, i.e. a box that people can put their cards into upon arrival. This apparently sits on a little table at the entrance of your wedding reception, well we all learn something new each day. So off I went and purchased what I thought was a lovely box which matches the colours of the day.

Well, when I opened it I discovered that it was rather flimsy and something was missing, that was me then, on a mission, thinking 'outside the box'. SU came to the rescue, all those 12 x 12 wonderful designer papers come with a sturdy strong piece of card so I set to, trimmed a little off each side and stuck them into my 'wedding card' box.

Next came the ribbon and it took me ages to get the bow right, ummm, it is right, isnt it? And then the best bit, sticking SU diamontes on the top but I dont really think that the photograph picks them all up. So Viola, my pretty box.

And who is going to know that SU is with me on my wedding day? If you dont mention it, I wont.
Thanks for having a read and have a lovely Monday

My you have been busy - the box looks gorgeous in the SU papers - shame they are no longer available. The thank you cards are super too - and only 2 sleeps til the girls arrive
