Modern Medley

Morning all,

We've all settled in to the back to school mode and the weather has definitely started to become autumnal, even X Factor and Strictly have started - the official countdown to Christmas lol !

Today's card is for my Sister- in-law who celebrates a special birthday tomorrow. We bought some Jo Malone perfume so I made the card in matching colours, Basic Black and Very Vanilla....

The sentiment is from the ever so useful Memorable Moments set and the flowers are from Always Eleanor. I love the Modern Medley papers, they look stunning on their own but also team up with any colour.

I also decorated a gift bag.....

Hope she likes them !

Right time to get up and start the day, need to plan next weeks class. Have a good weekend x

New Term

Evening all,

Bit of a milestone day today as Isabel started High School, which means I am redundant from the school run ! Feels a bit strange as for the last 10 years or so I have taken one or both of the girls. Still when the winter comes I'm sure I will be glad not to have to venture out !

I did make Isabel a good luck card and decided it needed to be suitably 'grown up' .As it was a special occasion I made a card with the inaugural inking of my new Postcard stamp.....

I love the fact that the postcard concept means you can hand write a message and it becomes suitable for all those non standard occasions. Colours are Soft Suede and Crisp Cantaloupe. Flowers are from the Stippled Blossoms set.

She survived her first day ( and so did I) and has decided she wants to go again tomorrow. Good job really ...... Lol
