Birthdays & more!

Morning all just a quick post, albeit a bit photo heavy:)
Yesterday was my sister Karen's birthday and we usually go down for the weekend but we have a wedding this afternoon in London and then a few of us are off to Derbyshire on Tuesday for a few days. Also my BiL is having an op on Tuesday so it will be a couple of weeks before we get together.
Karen does a lot of sewing, felting and machine embroidery so I thought I'd make a pop up box card to suit these interests, come and see:

All the elements are digi stamps and with embosslits buttons and thread wrapped around. The dp is from Anna Griffin

My nephew had a birthday two weeks ago and this is the card that I made him using Stamps Away trees and a JustRite topper and sentiment.

My great nephew is 18 on Monday and here is the card I made for him:

I cut the stepper card with my Silhouette which cuts all the mats as well as the topper, very handy! The dp is from Anne-Marie designs.

Finally as I said we are off to my friend's daughter's wedding which is in London followed by a reception at the Garden Museum on the River Thames. Luckily the weather appears to be much improved!
I have made a tealight card for Eleanor and Richard using the colour and flower Wisteria as that is the colour theme for her wedding.

Thanks for bearing with me and I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend:)
