A quick Wedding card....

One of my best 'customers' in work today asked of there was any chance I could do a Wedding card by Friday! She usually gives me plenty of notice so of course I said yes ....even tho I'm not in work on Friday, so had to do it tonight to take in tomorrow!

I knew I'd use one of my LOTV Die Cut images as they make the most wonderful cards when you've not got time to stamp & colour my colouring never looks as pretty!

I popped over to LOTV Challenge Blog to get some inspiration and Bev's sketch was just perfect - I'm too late to enter the challenge tho :(   ...I do wish the days wouldn't all roll into one!
As I was looking through some of this week's entries I came across a wonderful card by Laurie, it is absolutely beautiful - I had to try really hard not to get my CB out and emboss the panels - she's just done it all so perfectly.
I found my silver embossed wedding card and decided to use that..............phew, urge to mimic Laurie's card over!

I've used WOC Lace, Gemstones Cardstock, swirls that were sent as a RAK so not sure what Die they are!, LOTV Die Cut Image and Sentiment Stamp (I just LOVE these!!!) and MS Heart Punch.

Thanks for popping by, not sure if I'll get to do any blogging tomorrow as I'm travelling to mums after work to go to the NEC with her on Friday.....Yeh, my 1st Craft Show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some challenges I'd like to enter my card into......

Wild Orchid Challenge - Dieing to Punch it out!

Stamp Something - Something Sweet


  1. Well done in making the card so quickly.

    I recently had to make a birthday card at very short notice - it certainly puts you under pressure to create something from what you have in your crafty stash already especially when they give you a topic.

    Enjoy your first Craft Show.

  2. SOOOO sweet and pretty Carol! LOVE all the hearts!

  3. Carol your card is FAB I love that die cut image - I'm going to have to get some of them now lol! and that sentiment is my new favourite, I'm really blushing at the plug you gave me, it's not very often that everything comes together with my cards like the white one, but I love it when it does! I would have been happy for you to copy it, especially as you gave me so much credit!!

    Reading your blog is quite eerie, I have a 23 yr old son and 21 yr old twins, I went to my first craft fair at the NEC last year with my mum, we were going again on friday but mum fell and broke her toe and I absolutely love New York! Weird yes?
