My brothers 'New Beginning'!

Morning all! Well today is the day, its my brothers wedding! I'm so excited! The only fly in the ointment is the bloomin weather, looks like rain. I just hope it stays fine enough for the photographs! Anyway today's card is rather apt, it is the wedding card I have made for my brother and his new wife and I am entering it into this weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, which is 'New Beginnings'.

I adore this Cute Hangler & Stangler image and though it was perfect for their card. I have used the swiss dots folder as my new sister inlaw loves it and has used it for her place and table settings, so I though it would fit the theme nicely.


Image: Hangler & Stangler that I bought from e-bay, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

CS: from stash

Sentiment: SU Congrats set

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, simply said SU stamp set (heart embellishment), whispers pen for creating shadow

Misc: pearl brads from papermania, glitter glue

I decorated the inside as well with a pocket to put some money in and the sentiment 'Welcome to the wedded bliss club' which is also from the SU Congrats stamp set.

I just have a little story to share with you to prove that crafting supplies havea multitude of uses. I caught my OH in my craft room yesterday with my whispers pens. When I asked him what he was doing he turned around for me to see him colouring in the front of his shoe with a tan coloured pen. He had applied some super glue to the toe section of sole that had been coming away and it had left a small white mark. So he had got a whispers pen that corresponded in colour and 'voila' a perfect shoe with no marks! It sure made me chuckle!

Well that's all for me today. I will be in Doncaster with my family until sunday so I apologise in advance for not being around. I promise I will catch up with you all on sunday and I will hopefully have some wondeful wedding pics to share with you all!

Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate your support and encouragement!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
