It seems that weddings have been much in the news in my world lately. Goes like that sometimes doesn't it? A few of my daughters friends have either just got engaged or are nearly married....makes me feel old! The first card I made for a fellow forum member over on BubblyFunk who recently got married and was a beautiful bride too!!!

The paper I used was 12x12 embossed and glittered wedding paper, its beautiful stuff! The sentiment was printed onto vellum.

The second card was for my husband for our first anniversary. I can't believe that our first year has gone so quickly!!!

He doesn't like over-fussy (like most men) so I kept his simple. Why are our men so hard to make cards for????

The image of the meerkats is from a gorgeous CD Rom full of beautiful sketches called The Jayne Netley-Mayhew Collection, available from Joanna Sheens website. The background is also from the cd and is a sandune of sorts.

To save my blushes I won't tell you how the verse carries on inside tho hee hee

Thanks for dropping by and please leave a message XXX

Lol!! You've got me guessing now as to what's written inside! They are both lovely cards. Love the way you've laced the ribbon on the wedding card.

BOth are gorgeous Karen, as usual. I love that first paper.

Janice said...

These are lovely Karen. Was it a rude verse or just a soppy one? Hee hee!

Oh Karen I just love those meercats and the sandy background paper goes with it so well. I might have to look for that Cd.

Karen, they're both really lovely!

One question though... are those meercats being a tad rude...?! LOL

Two fab cards Karen, love that wedding vellum and the meercat image is so sweet! My mind must work like Janice's though - I wanted to know if your blushes were because it was soppy or saucy!
