We appear to be well and truly into the traditional wedding season - in fact one of my work colleagues ties the knot today. The card I have to share with you is one I made for her, and I can show you as she has already opened it.
But I have two more to do. On the back of the commissioned baby card, I have received two more orders from Toad's office but these are both for weddings in July. I say weddings - one is a wedding and the other a renewal of vows, but the cards will be along similar lines. But I have been told to be traditional for these, so that will be a challenge then!
Anyway, here is the one for my colleague:
I have used a Marianne Design stamp of Donny & Daisy
Lightly coloured with Polychromos pencils
Sentiment is from CC Designs
Those beautiful soft focus rose papers are LOTV
It's the larger of the Memory Box Precious Hearts dies
And a pearl to finish off
Good luck for today Laura and Mark, I hope the weather holds for you!
Now then, as much as I love my mum, there are times when she drops me right in it. A little while ago she was talking to me about the village fete in August. Usually, alongside the fete, the village church stages some sort of exhibition - last year it was teapots, a couple of years ago it was walking sticks - it's a little bit quirky and quite fun. This year it is handicrafts so she asked me if I wanted to display some of my cards. I hummed and harred for a while and said I would think about it, with every intention of saying I didn't think my cards were the sort of handicraft they wanted. Anyway, last week, while we sat waiting for her cataract operation, she told me that she had put my name down as an exhibitor and reserved me a display space! Flippin' heck. Looks like I need to be getting organised and sort out some kind of way to display the pesky things then! If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful - it is just a display, not a sale.
Hugs to all
