A Very Hanglar Bunch, And Some Sugar ;o)

Last week I had my holiday, this weekend it was my inspiration's turn...nowhere to be found, probably sunning itself in Spain (and who could blame it, after the 1.5 days of summer we've had here so far...) But luckily it took pity on me and caught an early flight home :D! Hihihi, seriously though, these three cards were made yesterday afternoon and today, all day Saturday and Sunday morning were a total bust, and the cards I made then ended up in the bin...

Simply cute, love this stamp, love the cupcake :D! I'd already put this paper away for the next It's A Girl card, but then I saw some "regular" cards a friend made with this paper and I thought why not :D

Made this card for my colleague, who broke her wrist a couple of weeks ago...she's going to receive it tomorrow, along with a big box of choccies, poor thing :o(

And this one is for my sister and brother-in-law, who are celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary at the end of this month...18 years, and I can remember it as if it were yesterday...I must be getting old ;o)

And finally, the last project I made during my holiday week, for the Sugar Nellie team :D. I even wrapped the chocolate bars, and now they don't want to eat them...ah well, chocolate doesn't go bad, does it? ;o)

The poem reads:

Thank you for Luca & Nellie, Hamish & Maggie
And Simon & Lola too
For Little Cotton Rabbits and Pip & Honey
And Elizabeth Bell's crew
For little pink envelopes on my doormat
I can't get enough of that!
Thank you for all the sugar you give away
And enjoy this, for it's your sugar day!

It was really fun to make, I've already ordered some more tins to make some more presents :D!
