I'm NOT Wearing A Hat!!!!!

Good Morning Bloggers

Ohhhhhhhh its so exciting, its my daughters 20th birthday on the 30th of this month and on Saturday her boyfriend Andrew came round and as he couldn't wait another week to give her her pressie HE PROPOSED!!!!!! Of course she said yes, OMG I'm going to me a MIL!! BUT not for a few years yet. They have been together since they were 14 so I am pretty sure its the real thing.

OK so onto the strange title of my post. I am by no means a posh frilly dresser, much preferring a pair of jeans and a tshirt, so I asked Ashleigh if a new pair of jeans and a nice top would be OK for me to wear (only joking of course) she said NO! But I don't do dresses, think the last time I wore a dress was my own wedding nearly 13yrs ago, so I think it will be a nice pair of trousers and nice top BUT NO HAT!! The only hats I wear are woolly bobble hats in the winter. I might be pushed to a pretty clip or flower of something, but I have plenty of time to think about that.

Anyway seeing as I was up to my ears in crafty mess, sorting stuff out into boxes and pots etc, I thought a nice CAS card would be OK.

I used a 5x5 card blank and added a layer of white glitter card, ten embossed plain white card with the swiss dots embossing folder. The little silver joined hearts is what started me off thinking CAS (I came across a bag full of them in my sorting out) and then just a simple congrats stamp mounted onto glitter card again.
If she is anything like me, Ashleigh will be keeping all her cards and things in a special box to remember in years to come.

So my next job is invitations for the engagement party in August, then compiling a file of wedding stationary ideas. I've told her I need at least 5yrs warning to make them lol
