A day out and a Wedding

On Tuesday I had a great day down in Southampton meeting up with Darnell and some other fellow bloggers. What a super time we had - Darnell is as sweet IRL as she is on her blog. I travelled down with Jane from Onions and Paper who had kindly volunteered to drive, the journey took rather longer than we anticipated due to the M3 being closed following an accident, but we did see more of the Hampshire countryside😄

I'm sure you've already seen the group photo on other blogs, but just in case here it is again.



There hasn't been a lot of crafting going on here apart from our invitations for our wedding in October. Fortunately I had finished them before the weather got so hot as my craft room becomes like a sauna!


There were a few prototypes made and discarded before I finally settled on the above design. I used the Floral Phrases stamp set from Stampin' Up! stamped and embossed in silver. The words were from an unbranded set I found on the Internet.


 Unusually for me I stamped the envelopes to match. The inserts were created in Craft Artist. I have to say making 10 all the same was quite enough!  I was going to keep it quiet but I let the cat out of the bag on Tuesday!!
