As promised......

Hi everyone, well my DH finally took some photos of the handmade birthday cards that I received from crafting friends (most of them from Joanna Sheen's forum)
The first picture is of all 42 of them and the others are close-ups so that you can get a clearer view of how stunning they all were.
I have never received this many cards before and I was absolutely thrilled with them all, it really made my day very special indeed.
I hope you enjoy seeing them, I certainly enjoyed receiving them all and I'd like to say another huge "thank you" to everyone who put such time and effort into making them, you are all very talented.

Annie said...

Chrissie thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I didn't make the box from scratch - I wanted something really strong so bought a reduced (bargain) box from Klicks photo shop and covered it. I - I don't think I could do a tutorial - to be truthful it's very like wrapping a parcel. You just cut the corners so that they fold in neatly - fiddly but worth it.
