A Marriage Carriage!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends and Visitors. I hope you are all well and enjoying the lovelsummer weather we're having just now.  The last two days here in Invernes were sweltering, much too hot for me really, today it is cloudy and much cooler, in fact I had to go and put a cardie on.  Yesterday I had to attend a Food Hygiene course, and the room we were in was stifling even although the windows were wide open, made very difficult to concentrate.  
So I have a day off today as I had to go in on my day off yesterday, so I'm catching up with bits and pieces.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last post, and a warm welcome the Annie who is my latest follower, I hope you come back often.

I was asked to make a wedding card by one of my clients as her son is getting married, here is what I've made;
I don't really do all that many wedding cards so I went off to look for some inspiration on the LOTV card gallery, and saw a beautiful one using this image, which is the only image I have for weddings, so this is my take on it, the original was created by Dena, one of LOTV DTs.
CC Vintage Embossing Folder, Rose Plaid
Mirri Card
Xcut heart
Wild Orchid Flowers
Silver Ribbon and Pink Crystals from my box
Papermania and Hobby House Pearls
Computer Sentiment
Star Dust Sparkle

now the box;
I coloured the embossed card with DI Spun Sugar
MB Precious Hearts Die
Hobby Craft Heart shaped Pearls
I've put a few wedding verses together for Sharon to choose for the insert, so that is all it is waiting for.
Hope she likes it, a son's wedding is so important and I am am so honored that she asked me to make her a card.

Well I have a few days to myself as Alistair is off once again to play, he's spent the day so far getting all his toys ready for the off, he's as happy as a sand boy.
I'm back to work for the next couple of days, I wonder what I've missed out on,
That's me for now, hope to see you all soon,

Hi Kate
What a wonderful card. Love it, love it, love it! And the box, wow!
We've just started selling the Rose Plaid embossing folder at work. I bought four sets of the new CC sentiment stamps as I couldn't resist.
Enjoy custody of the remote control for the next few days.
