A Sassy Bride

Hello All,

I am so sorry I have abandoned my blog a little...and I have not been around to visit you all as much as I should have, I am afraid I have been a tad distracted by Wimbledon......this happens every year, I become incapable of doing anything..housework, work, cooking, crafting...I just get so drawn into a match that I forget to eat and breathe!! and wow what a Wimbledon it has been so far!!!......I will not go on too much, for those don't want to hear any more about sport!!

I am again on the wedding theme..I have had a few of you ask, why so many wedding cards...I have 5 friends getting married this year, and probably at least 5 or 6 of my friends per wedding, that will want me to make a card for them, I am trying to be organised and have a good stock in, but the first wedding is looming!!...

I am not sure on this one...with being so distracted by the tennis, my mojo has gone a little AWOL...when I finally get into my craft room, I have not idea what I am doing. Also I have done so many soft pretty cards that this is so much of a contrast that it has left me not quite liking the results....I was aiming for a more modern funky look.....I want to try and make sure I have a wide variety of cards for my friends to look at, to cater for different tastes e.c.t.

The image is one of the Fab new digi images from Shirley 2 girls....I have coloured with my copics, and added some loose glitter, with the old quicky glue pen. The pink paper is "Bo Bunny - Jardin Blush" and all the other papers are from my scraps...and for the finishing touches I have added lace, ribbon, and adhesive glitter dots.

This is my entry for:

Pink Elephant - Challenge 72 Pink/Black
SG2 Twisted Thursdays - Something New (I have used brand new digi image)
