You're Invited - Week 27 LIM!

Happy Sunday one and all!!

Sorry I haven't been around since last week. I have tried to stop by your blogs and see what you've all been up to. I have been very busy at work and I am experimenting with my hobbies!! Still crafty types of projects, but I've decide to branch out from solely papercrafts and I am delving into the world of knitting and furniture renovation. I have already knitted several scarves and am currently in the middle of knitting a cushion cover. I am also busy renovating a couple of chests of drawers with seagrass baskets that I found at a garage sale at my local hospice, I though they would look nice in my ensuite, they just need a bit of TLC and a lick (or two) of paint!!

I haven't participated over at LIM very regularly these past few months (slap my hands), due to my hectic schedule. However, I always look what the new challenge is every week and try and participate where I can as I love the LIM style! So this week Mandi and Chrissie want to see cards using the colours of your nations flag.


So I went with the colours of the Union Jack.

and the inside....



Materials

CS: SU Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Naturals Ivory

Stamps: SU Sincere Salutations, Four Frames, Musical Notes (Wheel)

Tools: SU Decorative Label Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin around Handle

Misc: SU Ink in Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy, Versamark

I needed a wallet style card to put some tickets in for a friend of mine. I have bought us some tickets for a concert and wanted to present them in something a little more special that the envelope they came in. I love making these type of cards. They are so easy to do and are perfect for adding a little money, tickets or vouchers in the pocket on the inside. I thought the musical notes wheel was the perfect touch for this occasion and it was the first time I have used the 'You're Invited' stamp from the sincere salutations set. I LOVE this set, it was my first purchase from Stampin Up and I still use it as much today as I did when I bought it 3 years ago!!

Well I hope you like my entry for LIM this week. I promise to do my level best to try and stop by and say hello this week!!

Hugs, Victoria
