Mr and Mrs

Good morning all, a very quick post from me this morning, rushing around like a mad woman lol!!  I have been so busy at work and with my Mum, I haven't had time for blogging, but I had to make a wedding card for my hubby's mate at work..   Beware Photo overload lol!!!

Sorry the photos are not brilliant but I was up till late trying to finish everything off, I was lucky to get some photo's at all... they do look a bit blurry to me lol!!!

I have used the lovely image from LOTV called Mr. and Mrs, it's one of there cut out squares and so handy.. the lovely embellishments on her veil and bouquet are from Cloes, they are like little beads, they really are gorgeous.  Wild Orchid Flowers, Ribbon from the Ribbon Girl, lovely pearls from Mei Flower.
I made the box out of pearlescent card,  I could have done so much more but was in too much of a hurry:( Oh I mustn't forget the lovely Shabby pink embossing frantage I could of gone on and on with this lovely stuff lol!!

We are going on holiday tomorrow to Germany ( I finally get to see my grandson Yeh!! ) and then all of us are having a fabulous trip to Croatia.. we are driving and have a couple of stop overs on the way one in the Austrian Alps for 4 days and one in a place called Bled for three days.... then on to Croatia for a whole week with beaches and lovely water and hopefully some warm weather!!...

Going to enter this for LOTV Ideas to Inspire challenge  which is 'Pretty in Pink'.. not much time for searching for challenges, if I get a chance I will add them later...
So sorry I haven't been to visit any one, will make up for it when I get back..

See you soon, take care...
Love and Hugs,

Hitching A Ride....

Good morning everyone,
My card today is for my brother John, he loves his bike and keeps wanting to take me for a spin on the back!!  I think this is the closest I am going to get on the back of any motor bike lol!!!  I have used this lovely image from Johanna Sheen which I coloured with my Prisma Pencils.   I think I might of gone a bit over board on the Tim Holtz distress inks!  I am trying to think outside of the box a little and not be too scared to be a little more daring with myself, if you know what I mean lol!!  I have also used my curved border die again.. I just love it and have been experimenting with different options.  I think this is one of my favourite dies at the moment, it can give such lovely effects.

 A peek at the inside

The papers are the fabulous 'Wellington' pack again, I can honestly say these papers have just been the best ever buy! the twine and little motor bike are from my stash, I think they were from the hobby house.. not sure as you pick up so many bits and pieces and then forget where you bought them lol!!
