More for the girls

Hello to you all,  my we have a nice day here sunshine, blue skies anyone would think it is summer.  Took my plaques to the club the other night and got some favourable comments, no sale, but it was very  quiet, a lot of people on holiday yet.  We will have to wait and see if they take off.

Not the best photo but you can see what they are.
Chalkboard from eBay, twine and ribbon and card from stash.

Now I really must get serious about making cards. My stocks are very low and Christmas is fast approaching.  
I also have a project to do for a couple who have been together for 19 years, they have 3 boys and 1 girl, and have decided to tie the knot.  They don't want presents but say money would be gratefully received to take them all on a family holiday after the wedding.  I didn't want to just hand them a wallet with cash, I want to present it differently and have an idea in mind.
 Last year the couple entered a Radio Forth "win a wedding package".  Whoever raised the most cash for charity would win the package.  On the day Scott and Lana were in the lead, raising over £13,000.00 but the couple who won added more of their own money, which was allowed, to win the prize.  The couple who won were unable to use the honeymoon part of the prize and offered it to Scott and Lana  who gratefully accepted it and had an early cruising honeymoon last November. They are a lovely couple and deserve the best as they have had to overcome some hardships in their time together.  My hubby and I are invited to the evening reception and this is the invitation we received.  It was designed by the kids.

I hope you can read it OK because I think it is so lovely.  They are proud parents.
That is it for tonight, take care you lovely people.

  1. Your plaques are great here's hoping after all your work they sell. As for your evening invite how lovely is that, that they got their children to do them.
    I am sure you will think of something great to give the happy couple.

  2. Hello Wilma. I love your boards and hopefully they will sell out as people will soon be looking for gifts for Christmas. What a lovely story about the couple and their family. No doubt you will think of something ingenious to present your gift. Hugs Rita xxx

  3. An idea will come to you in the middle of the night !!!!!

  4. Great pla ques and hope they sell Wilma.
    Aren't the invites just wonderful! pity I couldn't read the second piece of script, but the wording of the first piece is just lovely. Sounds like lovely thoughtful children.

    You'll think of something wonderful for the Happy Couple.
    Have a lovely day, Kate x

  6. Good morning Wilma, I love those plaques they would be good for Little Christmas Gifts as well.
    Could not quite read the script but I am sure the kids have made it fun reading.
    Congratulations to the couple.
    Have a great day

  7. What a lovely story Wilma! They must be very proud of their children! Your plaques a great idea and as Patricia said could be used for lots of other things too. Enjoy your day. Christine xx

  8. What a lovely idea Wilma. How lucky they were to get the holiday after all. My son years ago collected Kit kat wrappers and won a week for two in Tenerife I think it was. It is nice when you know someone who wins something like that.
