All of a dither

Morning all.  Hope this finds you well - halfway through the week (almost) so nearly the weekend, wheee!

Actually, it's the weekend that has had me all of a dither.  There is a wedding on Toad's side of the family, his nephew in fact, so there was a certain amount of implied pressure for a wedding card to be made.  However, it wasn't all that straightforward as we have been lead to believe that the bride has either been married before, or in a long term relationship, and she has children.  The wedding is a registrar affair in a country house, so it's not all meringues and flounce, well, we don't know for sure, so the card was a bit of a puzzle.

Did I do a normal wedding, a more modern theme, something completely different?  There were two or three dry runs and in the end I thought, oh to heck with it, a wedding's a wedding after all.

So, I have used Whimsy/Wee Stamps - Love Me Do
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers), Polychromos and A Wink Of Stella
Sentiment is from LOTV Quotables: Love clear stamps set
Papers are LOTV/Nitwits Petal Fresh and Frosty Christmas (the blue, honestly)
Love die from Whimsy, corner die a magazine freebie
MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Corner die
and a smudging of Antique Linen Distress Ink around the layers to soften it all up

Toad will be travelling down to the wedding by train.  I'm not going, for various reasons, but we don't feel that we can leave Rosie for such a long day on her own just yet.  Which means, she and I get a crafty day together!

Anyhoo, that's me done for midweek - hope the rest of yours goes well.
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

This is a lovely wedding card Squirrel and you are quite right a wedding is a wedding!! Love the pretty papers you have used here and the die cut corners are a perfect touch. Poor you and Rosie though having to craft all day!! xx

Annette said...

I agree with Sarah, a wedding is fair game for some flounce, even if it's just in a card, so I think it's perfect. Love the image and the die cut and the sentiment is perfect.
