40 card commission

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...here's a few hugs for anyone who wants or needs them {{{{{hugs}}}}}

When I went out to work at about 3pm yesterday, the temperature was a chilly 4c. When I came out of work I expected to have to scrape my car but it was still 4c and it was raining!

I finally finished my 40 card order, took me 5 days to make them and here they are.

They are smaller than my usual 5x7 or 6x6 ish because the size of image demanded that they should be A6.
Luckily, when looking for somthing else, I discovered a long forgotten box chocful of A5 ivory hammered card which I bought when The Papermill Shops were still open, so I didn't have to cut, just folded them in half!
I laid them out in fours, stamping the SU church first, then the Stamps and Smiles sentiment, all stamping done with Memento rich brown inkpad.
I then printed and fitted the inserts, again in fours, and attached them.
Once more, I laid them out in fours and added a smidgin of gold Glamour Dust and 'Bob's yer Uncle', they were finished. Just got to deliver them on Friday and have a pub lunch with my cousin (customer).
I can't say that I am sorry they are finished :o)

Simply beautiful, Jackie! I love the elegance of the design. Sorry I haven't been over for a while. I had some DT stuff, a magazine commission, and other stuff to do for work too. I am now beginning to see the wood for the trees and hope to have a bit more time in blog land once panto is over at work on Friday
