Wedding Acceptance

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers and  a big thank you for you kind comments on my 18th Birthday card. You are all aware I am making wedding stationery and  I received the invite I made for the Wedding on the 22nd December just before my holiday .It was weird receiving my own card.
Today I'm posting the acceptance card I've made to send to Rosie's Mum and Dad. To be honest I think this is the first time I've actually made a Wedding Acceptance card.

Its a long time since I've used a Tilda image but I thought this Wedding Tilda was just right.

Well I hope you are enjoying the week its been freezing here and I'm really feeling the cold after a month in Florida.
I enjoyed the GNPE on Saturday but a bit disappointed with the number of stalls a lot of my favourite stalls weren't there and LOTV only had a small stall compared to usual they normally had two . The new hall is much smaller so I think this restricts the numbers allowed . I got some of the things I wanted but the die I wanted I've had to order on line as One Upon a Stamp was not there his dies are such a good price. On a positive note I got to meet up with Sue one of my lovely followers it was so nice to see her and chat . I also spoke for a while with Ann from LOTV she's is lovely.
Well I'm off to hospital shortly to see the dietician to see how I'm doing with my GF diet then back to catching up on my crafting and the ironing.  Love the crafting hate ironing.!!
Have a great week Love and Hugs Carole

  1. the image, your gorgeous design and all of the added goodies. How funny it would have felt to get an invite with the card you made.xx
    The Journey is the Start

  2. WOW!! So stunning!! I love the embossed flecks with the lace background and the butterflies popped up ready to fly away!! Really amazing design!! HUGS :)

  3. Oh so different.....a beautiful creation that beats any shop bought acceptance card and something the bride and groom will treasure for sure. Sorry i didn't see you at GNPE and like you I was disappointed...I hate that hall... too small and dark!

  4. Oh this is absolutely stunning Carole! what a perfect design and layout. I have to admit Boyes is one of my favourite stores for ribbon etc :) It was really nice seeing you again and I agree it's definitely not like it was when I first started going which is sad really. Enjoy your crafting! I won't mention the ironing huggles Sue xxxxx

  5. How lovely to receive an invitation that you made and a perfect response pretty. I should ignore the ironing (it's overrated) and just craft instead!! xx

  6. Excellent and very detailed card Carole. You obviously enjoyed your holiday. - Jim

  9. Gorgeous card Carole! Really fabby design and embellishments. The image looks so lovely. It must have been nice though to see your invites being used even to invite you.
    Sorry Harrogate wasn't as good as last year. I did see on the website for the show that a couple of the companies I like weren't going to be there as they were both at another show. Sorry I didn't get to see you again but I'm glad you got to meet up with you follower. Good Luck at the hospital tomorrow. Debra x
