However I had a lovely time in Dunedin and lots of fun with little Zac - albeit a sore throat arrived on Tuesday and has culminated in no voice and the aches and coughs which go with this nasty which they say can last a while (Grrrr and it is in the holidays!!!). DH has it as well although the worst seemed to be over before I came home thank goodness (Man flu LOL)
So back to the post. Today I am sharing a card and box made for a wedding on the other side of the world. Unfortunately my photos were taken very late at night and are not as good as I would like but it was off on it's journey the next morning (and I slept in) so not enough time to take any more. It took a very long time to create this project and do you know that horseshoe ornaments/embellishments are very hard to come by when time is limited. A friend gave me a little vintage china horseshoe with a bird on it and was happy for me to use it on this card but as it had been on her's and her parent's wedding cakes I felt it wasn't the right thing to do especially when she has a son getting married early next year so then the race was on to get some Pinkysil and make a mould. It arrived at the 19th hour and was a bit of trial and error however in the end all was okay (just hope it still looked like that when it arrived at it's destination).
Embellish It. Sorry I cannot remember the name of it but it is embossed with little butterflies. Flowers are mainly Wild Orchids with a couple of Prima Fabric flowers as well. The horseshoe doubled as the 'stay' for the easel card.
The bride loves pastel colours, lace and horseshoes so I hope she liked it.
I really hope I have more energy and feel like creating tomorrow as I have soooo much to do this week. I have a feeling it will just fly by then it will be back to work and all go before heading down south again to help with shifting on the 2nd - very excited about that though.
Thank you for visiting today - would love to know you have been by leaving a comment.
My next post will be a cute little baby boy card. Enjoy your week.
Until next time .....
