Happily Ever After

Good evening Friends.

Hope you are having a lovely and relaxing weekend unlike myself. I have a week off work and I want to accomplish so much. I have started today getting rid of clothes I no longer want - I have been going to do this for the last 5 years!!!

The happy event for this week will be purchasing the Distress Marker tutorial available through the very talented Alyce Keegans  Kit and Clowder page which you can find here. I have seen some wonderful results so far and the lady who has recorded this class is the very talented Tracy Payne. Really cannot wait to get started on this.
We had a lovely evening yesterday attending the Wedding Evening Party to celebrate a colleagues Wedding. They married a couple of weeks ago abroad but had a party last night for friends and relatives who could not attend the ceremony. It was a very enjoyable evening and the Bride and Groom looked gorgeous.
I have used the Tiddly Ink image again - so love this stamp.
A product list with a link to the online store will be at the end of this post.
The image has been coloured in with Distress Markers. Hopefully my colouring will improve no end after taking the Distress Marker class.

The papers are from Papermania.

The flowers are from WOC and LLC. Frantage has been added to the butterfly and image mat.

So much gorgeousness on this card. That gleaming butterfly - I love that shape too. The glittering corners, all those lovely flowers. Beautiful elegant lace. The image is just adorable, and you selected a perfect color for the bridal card. TFS that DI tutorial link. I'm off to check it out. Can't see that your coloring needs any improvement, tho'. TFS & Hugs.

Donna Ellis said...

Such a "sweetly regal" wedding card, with the prettiest "shabby" details, Sharon! Beautiful artwork, too. I'm proud of you for going through your wardrobe. It's a big chore and I'm not so sure why we make it that. Since January, we have donated 6 truck loads (pickup trucks) of furniture, clothing, miscellaneous "stuff" to the local thrift store. The house is breathing a sigh of relief! Our last endeavor was last weekend, and we filled my 4Runner with boxes of things. How can so much accumulate? hugs, de
