Life and Thyme!

Well hasn’t the weather in the UK been just wonderful! Lots of sitting out in the sunshine, and even nicer for me is that Mr B and Ms G came to stay- they were going to a wedding of an old school friend of Mr B’s.

Here they are sat outside in the garden- which looks a bit wild around the edges on account of us being away.. had I mentioned that?

And here they are in wedding finery.

Poor Mr B- in all those clothes as he was an usher!

July is rather birthday heavy so I made some cards before we went away- had I mentioned going away before?

These ones are all about recycling and using what is to hand.

This one has a Star Anise in the corner- the ribbon is recycled from some packaging- paper from my paper stash.

This one the same- the piece of string is recycled too. 001

Ribbon recycled packaging and the dried orange is a left over one from some I dried for a Christmas wreath in 2011.

Do you like?

Let me leave you with one more picture of Mr B and Ms G- they make such a nice couple don’t you think?

  1. I love the cards – and the fact that they are recycled just makes them better. Phew to wearing a suit in this weather!!

  2. Great way to make some cards. I like making things with what is already in the house. Have a lovely crafty week.

  3. ‘Recycled’ cards are my favourite kind.
    Lovely weather for a wedding 🙂

  4. Lovely cards and what a lovely couple Mr B and Ms G make.

    By the way, have you by any chance been away…. 🙂

  5. Thanks for your message about Moses. You have made me think about doing another giveaway, as that was quite a while ago. Your cards look great, and must smell nice too.

    • A bit aniseedy to be honest! You have to like aniseed and I don’t really, but they look pretty- the orange is nice tho’. I love Moses the Mule!

  6. Really? You’ve been on holiday?
    Love the cards… use to make all of my own but have lapsed recently.

    • I love making cards- and I have so much stashed material I am trying to use it this year. Love to see some of your cards- maybe with snails?

      • I don’t think I’ve ever made snail cards, but now you suggest it, I’m inspired!
        I too have a huge stash of card-making materials… time to make use of them I think!

  7. Liking the look of your cards – very topical and I really like the fact that you have used some organic bits too. A lovely change from the norm.

  8. Hello and thank you for your recent visit to my “Victorian Girls Room” post at Victorian Wanna Be. I really appreciate your comment.
    Have a great week,

  9. Cathy,

    I love the recycled cards. Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs, Tamara

  10. Lovely couple and so are the cards. I really like the idea of using something so organic as the star anise and orange. They are so pretty!

  11. Lovely cards….some great ideas for using up bits and pieces. I particularly like the one with star anise.

  12. Love the cards – extra nice that they’ll end up as very individual due to the ‘ingredients’!! Sue

  13. I like the cards they’re unique and just a little bit quirky 🙂
