Lynn and Mark's wedding card

I've been making this card for my friends wedding day using scrap pieces left over from her wedding dress. I cannot tell you how difficult I found it sticking the netting stuff to the card. I used vellum dots, but it was a mission! Her bridesmaid dresses were olive green so I thought the ribbon was quite appropriate! I hope she likes it.
I have been doing a Tatty Teddy cross stitch as the wedding present, which unfortunately, I haven't managed to finish yet, but I'm getting there. Many problems with it! When its finished, I will show it off to you all. I am pleased with it, as its my first proper cross stitch. I didn't enjoy doing it though, at all!
Mark and I had a lovely evening on Saturday at the wedding, and I really enjoyed getting all dressed up, as it doesn't happen very often! I also saw people I used to work with a few years ago before I moved away, who I hadn't seen since I left, and it was lovely to catch up.

I had some great news today. Went to my Rosemary Conley class and received my 2nd stone certificate. 2 stone in 6 months, I am ever so slightly proud! hehe! Only 1-2 more to go and ill be at my ideal weight!
Anyway, I hope to make some cards tomorrow, and start getting back into regular blogging asap, im dying to get into my craft room! Its been a while!
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

all the best Sharon

That wedding card sure brought a smile to my face. A very gorgeous and cute creation for sure! I love the ribbon down the side with the added flowers, and of course the stamp is so cute!
