The Balcombe Belles - Another Sunny Stamping Day!

Some of you know that I meet up once a month with my friends 'The Balcombe Belles' - today was the first month back after the Summer break, it was great to catch up with everyone, but boy did we all struggle to get back into crafting mode! Despite having done a reasonable amount of crafting during the last few weeks I too struggled, my No.1 'task' was an order for yet another Golden Wedding! This time I was asked to incorporate Bees! Okay, thought I, Bees yellowy/golden colour-golden wedding, shouldn't be too difficult..... got there eventually although it took me about 4 hours to be happy with the finished card. The decoupage peel-offs I've had simply yonks and I was a bit worried that they looked to 'weddingy' but with the extra gold bits I think I've given the impression that they're for a Golden occasion. The bees were made with dewdrop punches and black peel-offs (thanks to Helen Meighan for the inspiration) and the gorgeous gorgeous bow was made from the Bazzil tulle available from CraftsULove - thanks Treacle for showing me!

The other tag card/book was shown to me by my mate SarahK. I've made the book for my bestest mate in the whole-wide world Paula. Paula and I met when we were just 6 years-old - 46 years ago and what can I say except "oh dear, we're soooo naughty together....." It's not her birthday or anything else but she's been just .... there, and I wanted to say how I felt. Inside I've folded a very special friend poem and tied it with a bow. I'm just soooo lucky to have so many really good friends....
