congratulations Lianne & Robert

good morning everyone

today's post is sharing another part of my crafting
Wedding Flowers
I started flower arranging years ago when I started a flower arranging course at collage and really enjoyed it. But I enjoyed wedding floristry the most and my thirst for more knowledge began. I managed to source some very helpful books and DVDs and my floristry journey began. over the years I have designed quiet a few bouquets, button holes and corsages for friends and family and today I am sharing the flowers I made for Lianne and Robert McCoy.

the stunning Bride Lianne and very proud father Gary Cooke
my friend and work colleague.


Mother of the Bride


Lianne's bouquet before all the bling was added

the flowers look so real its hard to believe they are all faux silk
a vibrant waterfall design.
thanks for stopping by.
have a lovely day, enjoy and craft happy. Ann

baby girls christening

hi and good morning everyone

and I have used a few of my dies from my stash
my card is 7x7" white base and I have done a little fussy cutting and die cutting on my coloured image. I have also duplicated my image on the inside of the card.
