Floral Wedding

Friday, 22 July 2011

Wow!  I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve blogged.  I’ve been so busy getting invitations done for 2 weddings that I’ve been spending every spare minute on them.  I’m delighted to say that all but 3 invitations are finished and sent off to their respective brides – I’m waiting on some info before I can get the last 3 finished.
Just the Orders of Service and place-names to do now.

I did take a little time off last weekend to go to Donegal in the wild west of Ireland for the weekend with my family. 
I forgot my camera – shocking!  So I pinched a few pics off my sister to show what I mean by wild!

We hired a house for the weekend and it was absolutely beautiful!  I want to live there!  Here it is

And here’s our back yard!

There were some really stunning views, it’s just a pity the weather wasn’t on our side

We didn’t get that lost, but we did pass this on our travels around the area!

Anyway, another wedding card from me.
I used the ever-so-cute bride and groom from LOTV, so I stuck with the cute theme.

Very little colouring to do on this image, but what colouring I did, I did it with my copics.

And I made it into a twisted easel card

Photobucket

I used papers from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush pad and I teamed it up with a big leaf vine that I cut with a sizzix die in my wee bug.  I also used some very handy “Just the Edge” card strips – the pink scalloped edge, which I added some pearls to.

And a nice big pink bow to finish it off along with some florally bits and pieces.

The sentiment on the base is computer generated

And I added a pocket to the inside, which you can just see here

Fabulous card and a lovely colour choice. Thanks for joining Charisma this week. Loved your pics of Donegal they brought back fond memories. I lived there when I first got married. A truly unspoilt and beautiful place.
