Another one of Margarets stunning Wedding Cards!
Well what an exhausting day yesterday was, I do hope that Margaret gets her email issues sorted out
really fast, there is nothing more frustrating that having to be suspicious of every email that you receive.
The one super bonus about yesterday was that I got to have a lovely chat with Hazel, I just love those opportunities so very much, its just like talking to an old friend (I don't mean old as in age) (i'll just go get my shovel)!!!
Seriously, the point I was trying to make was that although we haven't 'met' yet it feels like we were just having a weekly catch up, talking about events of the past week, just amazing, I felt the same when I chatted to Patricia too, It makes me so much more excited about the retreat in October, I think we will all have saw jaw's by Sunday Night!!
I want to take this opportunity to let you all know that if you haven't already booked for the retreat I am pretty confident that you will still be able to get a room and join us, there are a few of you that aren't coming and I wish with all my heart that you were! I keep having a go on the lottery roll-overs hoping for the chance of a win, I would then take Cotswold Café on the road and meet every one of you!! Then pay for all of us to go and craft in the Sun somewhere beautiful, like Sam's Beautiful Residence Hotel, oh the poor butler would be handing his notice in when he saw all of us turn up, with our various needs and requirements! hahaha .........if only the dream would come true!!!
Anyway I thought I would try and take Margaret's mind off of her worries by showing one of her beautiful Wedding cards, aren't they just so stunning???
That beautiful 'Tied Together' Embossing Folder, I have it and haven't used it for ages, I do believe that an A4 has been produced by someone, although it did match up quite easily! It has been made even more beautiful by Margaret finishing it off perfectly with tiny pearls.
Can I ask Margaret, are the rings embossed onto the card, or is it an added embellishment??
The combination of dies used for the focal element look just divine and of course the Scandinavian Border (that I now know that we don't all own)!! But think we all should as it is the perfect finishing touch with the addition of a few pearls as Margaret has done beautifully.
Thank you so much for your amazing inspiration Margaret, your cards are simply Divine!
Right ladies I must away, I have another hectic day ahead, Lucy has her Grade six Clarinet exam, we found out yesterday that she is very poorly prepared as her teacher has omitted large parts of the Aural parts of the exam and the scales too, so she is mega stressed!
Also Becca is off to Royal Ascot today to continue her birthday celebrations, although, her flight was delayed from 7.45pm to 12.45 am, so she will be exhausted, also she had me panicking, she said "mum I need to talk to you, its an emergency" so I managed to get hold of her, she asked me if there was anyway I could get into town before the shops closed, I said no, because Paul wasn't home to take me, well she got herself in a right tizzy, because......her eyelashes were falling out!!!!!
I could have killed her, stressing me out for something so trivial, she was upset as she had false ones fitted before her birthday weekend, supposed to last a good couple of weeks, but they are falling out already and taking her own lashes with them! Honestly that girl will be the death of me, her idea of an emergency just takes the biscuit! She said, "Mum, I can't to Ascot with no eyelashes" !
I had to giggle though as when she had described her outfit, she said she had also bought a Fascinator, the look on Paul's face was a picture, he waited until we were on our own and asked what a Fascinator was, he looked relieved, when I enquired why, he explained that he thought that it was something that was more likely to be purchased from Ann Summers or similar outlet!, well I guess the name could be misinterpreted and it does usually have feathers!!!
On that note, I must go,
I will catch up later,
Love and Hugs all round,
