Get me to the church on Time...

Saturday was Judith, my BFF's youngest daughter's wedding, and a wonderful day it was too! I took my camera, (even remembered to get new batteries), wore my party frock and little heels (almost unknown for me!) and in time honoured traditon also made a card for them!
I used The Kiss stamp, the Karanatha Swirl stamp as a background, and a card sketch that I love ! I used white ink for the Kiss stamp, and embossed in clear fine detail embossing powder. I distress inked in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick, and I have to admit more than one version of the card went in the bin!! I do hope they liked it. Alice and Ross looked radiant, and boy Alice,loved the Vivienne Westwood dress, and the shoes even more! I wasn't the first person in the queue to borrow them either! Both my children were there which was fab, and I even managed to capture a photo of them smiling! It was a wonderful day, the rain held off till late in the evening, and it was so good to catch up on people not seen for ages, and to have a little drink or two or three! hic!!
Today it is back to work with a vengeance, but looking forward to my week off at the end of the month, let's hope the weather stays fine.
