Special Cards

I made these thank you cards for 2 special people involved in my wedding.

First, my mum.  She did so much.  I created a list of all the thing she did in Word, then printed onto some pretty My Mind's Eye paper.  Pink was the colour of my flowers - so I wanted to stick to this colour for my special thank yous.
Thank You Mum
Then this one, for a wonderful friend who did my make-up on the day.  As I don't wear make-up, this was a big deal, and she did brilliantly.  She is gorgeous, a real fairy godmother!  Oh and apologies to any French speakers - my friend is French and I had a go... I'm pretty sure it's grammatically incorrect :)
I used this gorgeous table confetti she brought along to my hen party.  I knew it would come in handy... they put it on every surface, and I carefully transferred it into a plastic bag after the party! :)  (I'm such a geek).
Thank You Isabelle
Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts (sentiment, fairy); Paper - My Mind's Eye (Bella Bella); Martha Sewart Punch (just got it and LOVE it);  machine stitching.

Thank you Mum and Isabelle - you made my day so special xxx

Oh, and if JULIE is out there - the winner of my Core'dinations giveaway, please click this link.  You have until Monday evening to claim your prize, or I am going to have to redraw.  Where are you???

Lucy your thank you cards are wonderful. I am thinking I should do more sewing on some of my cards. As your sewing is fantastic :D.
