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
