weddings on the brain...

Good morning everyone I hope your having a great weekend, I have had a bit of a sore throat and headache for a few days and woke up this morning with no voice at all, completely gone...I bet you can hear Phil cheering from where you are lol...my Dad looks so fantastically well and healthy and he even had a haircut while he was away, hes going back to England mid August too...then hes off on holiday again after the wedding in October, can you tell by my card for today I have weddings on the brain...we posted my Nieces huge massive parcel of invites (£24 to post would you believe) and a few hours later guess what arrived...the original lace I ordered from Canada over 7 weeks ago, er just a tad late don't you think lol...so what am I supposed to do with 15 yards of amazingly stunning lace that I have nothing to make with it...any ideas gratefully accepted...I think that's whats called 'sods law' don't you lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this stunningly beautiful Marry Me image from Saturated Canary, shes gorgeous isn't she...I coloured her very simply with distress inks and teamed her up with some of my favourite colour combination papers from Graphic45, this is from their Baby 2 Bride collection and is called From This Moment, I think this range is discontinued now, such a shame...I finished with some of the roses cut from the papers and raised, a fabulously lush satin ribbon bow and a few pearls...I made the sketch up as I went along but I'm entering this into the (Pin)spirational challenge and Southern Girls challenge too...I still don't have a clue about a present for Phil yet and had thought that I would take him out for a meal but he tells me hes working late Monday so that's that idea shot down in flames...I don't think we are doing anything today as Phil has some paperwork to do and I need to have a crafting day...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one
