Wedding Gift

I seem to have been stuck on 49 followers for such a long time would love it to read 50 sometime soon, but beggars cannot be choosers as they say.  I see from looking at how many people view and how many comment that there is a bit discrepancy but it would be nice if everyone who viewed/commented could maybe become a follower.  Ah well such is life.

I said I would try to come up with something different to present my money gift to Lana and Scott and this is what I came up with.  I know Lana's colours for the wedding are Ivory and Pink so that is what I chose to do this heart in

The heart I bought at Dobbies Garden Centre
The Gardenia flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
The pink card for the butterflies, and ribbon and pearls from my stash.
Martha Stewart wrapper to enclose money wallet which I made from some pink card
Sentiment from Kanban.
I made a card but forgot to photograph it whoops, head in the clouds.
Don't know if that sentiment is right or not will have to think about that.  I have straightened the bottom heart as it was at an angle when I photographed this.  Something different I suppose, I hate just handing over a money gift wallet.
The Candy Kart is just about completed, Lana's dad has added the material to the roof and I have given him the letters I cut out on my Cricut Mini to add to the scalloped edge.  I was going to assist but his two daughter have volunteered to do it so better for me that they do.  I will photograph it when complete.
Well I have been out and in with the little bit of washing to did today, one minute it is fine and sunny then along comes a squally shower and in they come again.  This last time they are in for good and will finish off drying them on the clothes dryer.  I am having a lazy day today, what's that I hear my hubby saying, I have one every day, well that is the joys of being retired, everything can be done in slow time if I want.  We are even eating out so no preparing a meal and washing dishes, oh this is the life.
Well ladies and gents, that's it for now, just leaves me to say take care out there and hope to hear from you all soon.

  8. Gorgeous Wilma, what a novel way to give your gift. I'm sure the couple will be delighted with it and be able to keep it.

    I know what you mean about the number of visits you get being very different from the number of comments! I get quite discouraged sometimes when I only get one or two comments and I see other people getting lots. I'm glad you discovered that you can comment on your computer. Not sure why it doesn't work with your iPad as I know some people do comment with their iPad. I end to stick to my laptop.....when my broadband condescends to co-operate!

    Wilma, like you I am often surprised by the number of people who actually "visit" my Blog and the number who comment. I then think of the number of Blogs I visit and do not comment on while Blog Hopping"
