Wedding card

My friend Isabel married her love, Damien, yesterday. Yes, on a Tuesday! Anyway this is the card I made for them. The basic card can be found here. I enjoyed making it. There was a lot of cutting involved and I am so glad that I have my Cricut Expressions machine to do it with.
The base is Whisper White with the rest of the card being in tones of So Saffron and Lilac with Dark Purple for the wedding dress. Unfortunately I couldn't take a good photo of the inside, however, I put a little bride and groom in there and Orchid Opulence around the inside of the card as well. I also hand made the envelope out a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.
Sorry, but the photo doesn't do the card justice.

The wedding was held at the Secret Chapel at the Inverbrackie Cemetery. It really is a magical place, so don't cringe and say What the! I will post some photos later. Then the reception was held at Rydges South Park on the corner of South and West Terraces in Adelaide. From the 6th floor, with its fully glassed windows you could see the fireworks that went off at 2100 because of the Royal Adelaide Show. Also the lights of the rides especially the Ferris Wheel.

Anyway, have a good day or night where ever you are!

No Excuse

I have really no excuse for not posting other than that I have been extremely busy. I didn't even get to my local shop on Saturday for the Memories On The Murray Sale. I was in Adelaide all weekend enjoying a spiritual banquet. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I attended our annual 3 day convention which was held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.

My friend, Maggie, asked me to make a card for her partner. This is a new medium for me - making male cards but I had some help in that I cased the idea from Donna's blog. Thanks, Donna, for the inspiration. Go and check out Donna's blog, she is a very talented and creative lady. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the inside of the card to show you. I always decorate the inside of my cards because I think that is as important as the front of the card.

Please let me know what you think!

And have a nice day or night where ever you may be.
