Any Celebration and G is for Glitter

Hello again - me posting two days on the trot - not often that happens? LOL!

Anyway, my cousin got married last Saturday, so I made a card for that special occasion.

The image was from Digistamp Boutique, and I re-used the sketch from Friday Sketchers a couple of weeks ago - I love that sketch. The tag comes out and has got the date of the wedding on it. I added my current favourite stickles - diamond!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - any celebration
ABC Challenge - G is for glitter

My Mum had some lovely photos from the wedding - I saw them on her camera on Sunday. Unfortunately, before my Dad downloaded them to the computer, he decided to delete some old photos and managed to corrupt the memory card - oopsie!! At least my Mum has three brothers and three sisters who were taking photos too - so she's going to ask for copies of some of theirs! Aaaww, things do go wrong for my Dad quite often!

I went to see my MIL in hospital again today - she is still very breathless, and is fed up with it now - she had an x-ray yesterday which shows that the fluid level hasn't changed on her lung so, at last, the doctor has said they will drain the fluid - not sure if that means just syringing some off or actually fitting a drain. I hope they manage to get all the fluid from there pretty quick - I really don't want her to have to go through what my Mum has been going through for the last year or so. On the plus side though, you can see she's got ankles now - I don't think I've seen them before! - it's all the weeing she's been doing because of the water tablets they've given her - she says she would have filled their water tank at home and could even have flooded Wales ROFL!

That's enough from me for now.

Love, Andrea xx

Your MIL will feel a bit better after they have drained her lungs Andrea...I had it done as I had double pnuemonia and it was instant relief of pressure and gives the treatment a bit better chance of working...I bet they loved your beautiful card, its a brilliantly made wedding card

What a lovely, lovely card, Andrea. I love those dainty flowers so much - you know I simply love flowers on my cards. The image is just so cute. Your cousin must have loved this card.

I hope your mil gets better soon.

I just had a silly question to ask - I often make cards with 3D embellishments but do not have boxes for them. Instead I use bubble wrap to pad the card. Wonder what other people do?

How did you present this card, I mean in a box or an envelope?

Sorry if I am bothering you...
