Will you be my bridesmaid ?

People keep asking me why have I spent so much time preparing these sweet little things when the bridesmaids have always known who they were going to be ?! Well in fact I never officially chose my maids up until well right now !  Although I am afraid that who they are will have to be kept quiet until I get a response from them all, which really shouldn't be that long.

As most of them but 1 live at least 2 hours away I couldn't exactly just pop here and there to treat them all to a special luncheon; it would have been rather difficult with at least two of them living abroad ! So bridesmaid cards it is and yes via the royal mail ... is there anything wrong with that ? I think not. I miss those sweet days where we would send each other pretty letters through the post. So here's to hoping this will reignite a desire to write to each other more often.

(please excuse the lighting)

All round these cards were pretty easy to make. The most trickiest part was deciding on a pattern and the colours. 

I drew the flowers and the letters and then painted them with some watercolour paints. The writing is not my finest and now I wish I had found another way of printing them onto the cards, but either way I am pretty happy with the way they have turned out. They are simple and to the point.

Later on I plan on another project to inform my ladies a little more, but in the meantime I hope that they will appreciate the time and effort I have put into making these !

Now onto my next project !
