Wedding Day - Sunday 21st July

Good Morning Friends,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sunshine..thank you for your comments on my Tag Book yesterday, which I really appreciated. I saw from Facebook last night that Christine had a great day at her shop and raised lots of money for the Ronald MacDonald House charity.

We had a super day in Cardiff yesterday, enjoying the atmosphere by the water at Mermaid Quay and lunch outside on the terrace of a quay front was gorgeous!

Today's card is a wedding card I made recently as a commission: the lilac printed background paper is Damask by PInk Petticoat; I matted and layered this with white. lilac and mirri card, finishing with white card embossed with the Sue Wilson lattice hearts folder.

The 'To Have and to Hold' was typed, as were the names. The flowers are all made from a Britannia Rose die, except I didn't actually make some of them into roses, choosing to layer instead. To finish off I inked them and the edges of the sentiment with Milled Lavender. 

That's it, a quick post from me today! Happy Sunday all,

Carole X


  1. So glad you had a wonderful day out yesterday Carole.

    Your wedding card is beautiful, the soft lilac is just lovely and so is your lay out.


  2. Such a lovely wedding card Carole in gorgeous soft colours. Glad you enjoyed your day in Cardiff. Gosh that takes me back. We lived in South Wales before moving here and I was in Cardiff just about every week. I now have friends who have moved there from Oxfordshire so still visit on the odd occasion. Christine xx

  3. Beautiful wedding card Carole and your colours are so delicate...

  5. Good evening Carol,

    I have just been given an order from Hazel`s daughter for a wedding card so better get a move on and start it.
