* Wedding card of a different sort ...

I was asked to make a wedding card for a gentleman who is 80 and his bride of much the same age. All I really know is she is a musician and he is a financial consultant. I struggled. White lace, pearls and images of a bride and groom gazing into each others eyes just were not cutting it for me.

I began with a background of music and old ledger paper. That seemed appropriate. Then I began to rummage through my box of images. I came across a telegram from Belgium which actually was a congratulations telegram for a wedding. This caught my eye because the horse and rider looked so happy. Next I fell upon a victorian image of people standing around what looked like a bar, chatting etc. hmmmm, I thought, this could be a wedding. So I did a little fancy cutting, pasted them on the front of the card. Cut some words out and voila - the front of the card was finished.





I made an envelope out of hand made paper, cut a label for it and stuck on a little embellishment.  I did a close up of the image off the telegram.  I think it's just gorgeous.  Fancy receiving a telegram this beautiful with a happy message.  Those were the days.

So that's it.  It's a little off the wall, so I have told the person who wanted me to make it there is no obligation to take it.

It poured yesterday afternoon and flooded my driveway, plugging up the drain to the sewer.  I had to wade out and unblock it, pull out the debris and put everything back together.  I was not amused.  It's being fixed on Friday.

Well my lovlies - thank you for having a look and leaving such lovely comments.  It's always a pleasure and a lovely surprise to find them there.

My friends are getting married.  I'm getting drunk.
I think we know who the real winner is.

(Sorry, it made me laugh)

Bummer about the drain....
