Wedding Card!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I hope everyone is well and to those of you who are not, well I'm sending out kind thoughts in the hope you'll be feeling better.

It's been a week since I last posted anything, but I have been beavering away in the background trying to get some cards made.
Thank you all so much on your kind comments on my Peacock card, I appreciate them so much.  I was planning on that card for Moreen's birthday, but I wasn't too sure, but now I think I will use it for her.  I'm busy trying to get Damian's finished, I always find it difficult to finding inspiration for his.

Well, I had my first week at my part-time hours and I think it will work out OK.  However, I was tired after Thursay's shift, but the more I get used to it the easier it will be.  I am really thinking reducing my hours is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Have you noticed the days are getting longer?  Spring won't be long.  We have had a mixture of sunshine and darkness, in fact I thought it would snow but, nothing so far..... fingers crossed.

Here is my card for today; 

I was asked to make a wedding card by one of my clients, he is so excited to be invited to this wedding, it's a really big deal for him, but he couldn't give me much in the way of information, so I just decided to stick to white.  H's also not sure when the wedding is, bless him, I hope his support workers have got a handle on it.

Anyway, a crafting friend had given me these beautiful circles, they are  SB large dies, but I don't know the name of them.  I was keeping them for something special, so this is the special something.
Tonic dies for the center piece and a computer generated sentiment,
WO Roses and  Pearl Pins
 Hobby House Pearls
I've just to make a box for it and it's ready to go.

I'm off to have a tour around your blogs to see what you've all been up to.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

herbert said...

Well, I am finding myself lucky to reach your post, as it allows me to find such a beautiful card. It is very beautiful for sure and lovely to look at as well. As there are several types of cards available, craftsmen use to show creativity in these, and I liked this creation very much. I preferably like Indian wedding cards more over other types of cards, but I appreciate this as well. For some Indian wedding card designs you can visit
