Thomas and Ashley's Wedding Card

Miserable Monday to you all! 
Home alone again :(

I have a super quick post to share with you today as I am not much in the happy and chatty mood.
Hubby has been home this weekend for a huge big 64 hours! and on the drive home from the airport he so ever kindly told me I had to make him a weeding card to take back with him!  Well ... I have to give him some credit as he gave me a kind of direction and style to go in ... 
She's just like you! so if you like it, she'll love it!

Well ... too easy! That calls for all my favorites! So it was out with the Pink and Choc papers, some lace, pearls, posh pins, handmade flowers and some of my fav brought ones at the moment all topped off with a splash of glimmer mist!

This is what I crafted-ly created yesterday while the whole family had a vegi day, watching some moves and just hanging around the house like normal families do of a weekend :$

Really do love how well this one finished! 
And ... Well ... if it was any other quote than a wedding one 
I would not be parting with it!

I sadly popped hubby back on the plane for his 'other home' this morning so I am off to craft my blues away for a while.  Thank you for dropping in on me and I hope you liked what you saw.

On a side note - For anyone interested in the Cake in a Jar recipe from my post HERE last week ...
As I have received quite a few 'how to' comments and emails ...
Stay posted for this Wednesday (15th June 2011) for a Tutorial here and on The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog.
