Coffee Break

Good morning all my lovely followers and friends. A special welcome to my new followers Melanie and Annie and my new Google + followers Gail, Annie and  Maxim. I hope you all enjoy my posts and continue to visit my blog.

My card today is quite a simple design and one I made a while ago as a sample for the ladies and  gent at my craft group to make.
Unusually for me its an image from an old die cut sheet from LOTV that I'd had for ages think I bought it at my first ever trip to GNPE. so no colouring here!!

Hope you enjoy this quite simple card .I've not had time for much new stuff as I'm still doing the wedding invites but on the last lap currently doing the inserts. I'll have a bit more time then to do some of my own crafting .I've got quite a few new crafty things not had time to play with yet . It will only be short lived as I still have the Order of Service to do only 80 not bad if you say it quickly!! I have really enjoyed making them and am sure I'll be very proud when I hand them over to Rosie and  Scott.
Hope you are all having a good weekend the weather has been great must have brought it back from Cyprus with me. I'm now going to catch up on the holiday ironing deep joy I don't think!!

This is so sweet, Carole, and just adorable in the sepia colors!! Thank you for your comment yesterday. I liked your suggestion of the white ribbon and did as you suggested. Come see and let me know what you think when you get a minute ~ I don't know how you ever have time to do anything but the wedding! I totally like it better! Hugs, Darnell
