Romance Is In The Air

Hello lovely Bloggers. How is your week going so far? I'm not sure what's happened to Summer up here in Yorkshire. We are back into long sleeves!! It's been showery and cool all week. Those long, sunny days are a distant memory at the moment.

We went to a lovely Wedding last Saturday. One of those small, intimate ones where all the guests chatted together regardless of whether they knew each other when they arrived. It was a real treat to have an opportunity to dress up too. I can't remember the last time I wore a floaty dress.

This was the card I made for the happy couple. It was inspired by my blogging friend Kathy, who made a card using this silhouette couple taken from the Internet a little while ago. I decided to dress the bride with some fancy paper and I gave her a glittery veil. The background was done using a QVC foam swirl stamp and galaxy gold brilliance ink with a computer printed sentiment. It was one of those cards that just evolved as it went along and for once I was quite pleased with the results.

I have also been making Sugar flowers this week for a cake my MIL is making for my SIL's Silver Wedding Anniversary in a couple of weeks. I haven't had a lot of time so we settled for a spray of white roses and silver chillies with some silver ribbon threaded through. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever you are doing. I am having a bit of a break from Blogger for awhile to enjoy the rest of the Summer holidays but I will try and visit you whenever time allows so take care and Happy Crafting.

Hi Lisa. What a gorgeously romantic card! Really beautiful. And those roses are so delicate - they look real.

It's been cool and showery all week here too. I'm well into my decluttering - cleared out lots but can't see much space yet! Hope you enjoy the rest of the holidays and whatever it is you'll be doing.

Hugs, Lynne xx
