A Wedding Card

Hello Everyone

I don't know, I just can't get my 'arris' into gear at the moment! I feel pretty awful that I forgot it was my sister in law's birthday on Friday and so had not made her a card. Luckily, Richard remembered first thing in the morning and, unusually for me, I had a couple of cards made up in a box so we were able to give her a handmade card - pheew!! I knew I should have been making a card for someone!

But I did manage to make a wedding card for my cousin who got married yesterday - Congratulations to Ceri and James! They got married in a beautiful little church, which had a woodland walk down to it, and there was bunting tied to the trees along the path - it really was a stunning setting. Anyway, here's the card:

A very simple card, but I liked the way it turned out. I didn't use any designer papers, just pearlescent card. I embossed the white with a Cuttlebug folder, called Kimmy's Love I think. I added little dots with promarkers around the edge of the image, to look a little like confetti. Then added stickles around the edge of it. I'm not sure what make the flowers are - I bought a bunch from my local craft store. I think the pearlescent brads are Papermania. I used lilac and white organza ribbon to make the bow.

I followed the Mojo Monday sketch, and am also entering the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter which is Anything Goes
Do You Stack Up which is Squares

I'm having real difficulty leaving comments on some blogs at the moment - is anyone else having the same problems? It is as if I haven't signed into blogger and it keeps asking me to sign in again when I try to publish my comment, but it will not accept that I have done - so annoying! And why is it only on some blogs? Anyway, stop moaning, best go and check on the chicken - it's smelling good!

I will have to make a card for my niece this week, so I hope I will have another card to show you sometime soon. I really ought to make some little gifts for teachers at school, but I can't muster the motivation for that at the moment either! Crikey, I sound like a right whinge bucket at the moment - sorry folks!

See you soon.

Love, Andrea xx

Andrea, gorgeous card! I love the embossing folder you used and the shimmery white cardstock...very classy! Thanks so much for joining us at DYSU this week!

About your problem with blogger and leaving comments..I have heard of a few different things that might help:

1. Click, "Stay signed in" box when you sign in.

2. It might help if you switch your browser.

3. You may need to clear your cashe of cookies (go see Google help)

Hope this helps!

Gorgeous card, love you image, thanks for joining us at TPS this week.
By the way I had that problem as well, when you sign in don't tick the stay signed in box, it means you have to sign in at the start of each session but you can leave comments again.Good luck.
Hugs Debs

Hi Andrea,

How are you doing? It has been a long time since I visited you... my holiday has kept me more than busy and so have the children who are on vacation.

This card is simply BEAUTIFUL... LOVE IT! To be frank, it looks great without designer paper.
The wedding sounded like it must have been such a sweet affair (oun on the word!!!)
