I am back

Good Morning friends.

I am sooo tired. We had a lovely wedding but it has certainly taken it out of me. Six hours sleep in two days is just not enough. The morning of the wedding I was awake at 3am and just could not sleep so at 5.30, Russ and I were up preparing all the food. Russ used to be a chef so it was a doddle for him and a fabulous job he did.  Jade and Scott had a wonderful day - I will post some photos when we get them from the photographer.
I am supposed to be making a card for Diva's today but I am just to tired to craft so apologies and I promise to be back for the following challenge. 

Here is the card I made for Jade and Scott.

I could resist no longer and have joined the masses and bought the La La Land Heart Banner Die - I love it.

A change from my colour scheme of late - pink - and used the wedding colour theme.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - New Stash (Banner heart die)
Card Mania - Favourite embellishment.
(Banner heart die. First time used but have been wanting it for months)
Bunny Zoes - Bingo (ribbon/lace, button, Flowers)
The Ribbon Girl Challenge -Red
Papertake weekly - Flower Power
Crafty Ribbons - Three of something (3 banners)
Emmas cards - Floral
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes (op twist - stitching)
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Bingo (button, lace, die cut)

I will prop my eyes open with some matchsticks later and visit your lovely blogs.
