Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Here we are ar the start of another week,a very special day today as its Paul's Birthday 🎂 🥳. He is working on lates, we are hopefully going out for dinner this evening, Matt Becca and girls are coming too. Paul never wants anything for his birthday, so it's always a bit of a trial trying to come up with ideas. Hopefully this year he will enjoy his birthday a bit more than last when he spent the day with his head down following his emergency eye surgery!! Having Paul in my life is a gift I am truly thankful for every day, I would literally do anything to make him happy 😊 😍
Janet what a treasure to find in your Dad's art things, something that you have the pleasure in using in your 'works of art' today. Do you have any of your Father's Ink drawings ? I would love to see some?. xxx
Lynda your comment made me feel sad yesterday, you will always be part of our Blog Family, we all understand why you can't craft just now, there is no hurry ( but i can't wait to share your cards again). Sending huge hugs my lovely friend ❤
Pat I hope that you managed an hour or so at the Canal, we had a couple of small, light rain showers but they soon passed. xxx
Today's card is a Wedding Card that Becca asked me to make for her friends that are getting married this coming weekend, it has been rescheduled twice, so I bet they can't wait. I made the cards using the same colours that I used for the 'Save The Date cards' that I made them a couple years ago.
I used two different SU Embossing Folders for the background, then added a piece of pale lemon lace along the seam. I tied a double bow with the lace too and popped it in the centre and adorned it with same lemon roses as i used on their Save the date cards. I layered dies SU Detailed Bands dies to hold the sentiment, adding a touch of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide to edges to continue with yellow theme and to highlight the ornate die cut. To personalise the card I printed their names and die cut them in little hearts, adding a touch of same ink to highlight. To finish the card I added some tiny diamantés that I touched with Yellow alcohol marker.
I made a box for that extra special touch, using the same elements to decorate.
The categories used: Embossing Folder/Die cut/ Flowers.
I hope that you all have a lovely day, gentle hugs to those that need one,
Love and Big Squishy Hugs to all,
