Thank you

Good morning everyone!
Thank you all so much for your comments on my cards and understanding that I will not be able to do full instructional tutorial for a while......If I could create more hours in the day then it would be definitely on the top of my to do list:)
I am whizzing through my list of to do's before Christmas though, although I could do with the help of a few little elves to help with the wrapping:). I am so lucky though that my hubby is the cook at this time of year (well actually most of the year) and he has everything planned so I don't have to worry about that part!
I have my hair being coloured today ready for the big day on Saturday.....I have it done at home so I will be able to fit a little crafting in between:) Not sure whether to have my hair cut back into a bob? It has taken me a year to grow it, but I am finding that all I do is put it up like I did for the show.....decisions! decisions!
Oh and in answer to the question...Will I be posting pictures of the wedding and the stationary? I am sure I will be adding a few pictures of the bride and groom:) However I have a little confession....my daughter-in -law to be....Olwen has made everything with a little help from my daughter Sophie. I did help design them though.....but they are gorgeous with a vintage theme. However I am making the table decorations which is on Fridays to do list!
Oooops this was supposed to be a short post today:)
So to my card for today..... A thank you card from me to all of you:)

  5. Hi Nikki, sorry I haven't had time to leave comments on your latest few cards individually but they are all stunning and beautifully detailed. Love the elegant brown and cream here and the sumptuous embossing :-)
    I wish you lots of luck working through your to do list and of course for the wedding on Saturday!

  6. Hi Nikki,
    A very elegant card today, love the design and colours.
    Good luck with all the things you have yet to do, but I'm sure you'll enjoy the wedding.
    I know what you mean with little elves - I could do with some to do my housework!
    Best wishes, Rose
    Best wishes

  7. Hi Nikki, I really love the Card on your Blog today, I hope all goes well for the Big day
    Love and hugs from Sam.

  8. Morning Nikki, Thank you, here's hoping you manage your time productively and your 'To Do' list all get done. Your card is stunning, the colourway is fabulous and the gems look so elegant and very effective, I love it.
    Hopefully you made your mind up about your hair, come on do tell !! Did you get the chop or did you leave it long haha. I know what you mean about always putting it up when it's long, I have only seen you with it on tv and also on your profile piccie here on your Blog, it looks beautiful both ways to me. I have very fine hair, so keep it quite short and elphin style, and it looks thicker to me, and it's also easier to style ha ha, I had extensions for a while and it wrecked my hair, but when I had them, I always put it up haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. Beautiful card again Nikki, so unusual to have a brown card but it is great


I hope I have inspired you with my creations :)
