almost halfway

2 night shifts done, 3 to go and then I'm off duty!

So not much to tell, really. The lost diamond earring still hasn't turned up. :(

Julie and I made around 60 invitations for her retirement party - she's calling it the 'un-retirement party' , as she's returning to work part time later this year.

36 years served in the NHS - I suggested she call it 'an eternity in maternity'!! LOL

and the reverse:

I wanted to white emboss on the Kraft CS but the powder wouldn't stick, so we only did this one:

All were highlighted with diamond Stickles and gems.

Isn't this a gorgeous stamp set? It's by Stampin' Up, from the American Catalogue. When we visited earlier this year, I placed an order with a local SU demonstrator for quite a few things that aren't in the UK catalogue. I'm sure I'll do the same if we go again next year, unless SU massively improve what's on offer to us Brits!

I made a birthday card for my father-in -law, but I took the photo and didn't check the shot before we gave him the card. Apologies for the very blurry shot - dont' click for the close-up!
It's a shutter card, and I got the instructions from Dawn's blog, she is so generous with all the videos she makes!
Bo Bunny paper 'you bug me' and the hero arts owls again!

  1. Hey Alison! What a fab shutter card! Those papers are gorgeous too! Sorry you haven't found your diamond earring yet, I hope one day it'll just pop up. What ever you do DON'T HOOVER LOL! Those invites are delicious - so elegant! Eternity in Maternity is very cool too - nearly as cool as the term Copicaholic of PTI-tis!
    P.S Ta for the bday wishes! x
