Today is a special day...

I promised in my last post that I would post the class details from the weekend but before that, today is a very special day as our dear Vicki married the lovely Ted making all Vicki's dreams come true.  I know you will all join me in wishing Vicki and Ted congratulations on their big day and wishing them a lovely, safe and trouble free driving honeymoon.  I cannot wait to see the photos. 

Vicki and Ted even received good wishes from across the pond, check it out here.

I am sure Vicki will share some photos with us upon her return from honeymoon.

So, without further ado, here is what we got up to at the weekend (in amongst the celebrations!).

I chose to use the lovely Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper.  I love the softness of the colours of these papers Wisteria Wonder, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Gray.  As much as I love these colours, they are not colours I would normally work with so it was a challenge on my part but an enjoyable one.

I started with this watercolour background card using ink direct on to the acrylic block, spritzing a little and stamping direct on to watercolour paper.  Every example was slightly different but they were all gorgeous.  I used the Just Because sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts.

 
I then created this card using the Chevron Punch, intertwining two chevron strips to create a lattice for the flowers, using the Happy Big Day sentiment from Chalk Talk.  Oh and I nearly forgot, the dotty background was made by inking up some bubble wrap!
 
 
For the third card, I wanted to use the paper with the pretty circles on it.  This paper is so pretty in its own right, I wanted to keep this one quite simple.  I used the Ribbon Border Punch to create a pretty edge around the chevron oval, Chalk Talk for the sentiment and the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder for the background.
 
 
Finally we made a pretty bag to hold the cards and envelopes which would make a lovely gift.  The bag was inspired from a recent training event organised by the lovely Monica Gale. 
 

I hope you like this month's offerings and I shall be back in a few days to share another card but I have to wait for the recipients' birthdays to pass by.
