Hey, I'm back.......(again)

Hello everyone, it's soooooo good to be back blogging, I do miss it, but sometimes there's just not enough hours in the day for everything I need to do. However,  today I've been able to get into my craftroom and make 3 cards, so I'm rockin'!
I needed to make a wedding acceptance card for my lovely great-niece who is getting married on 3rd August.  The replies should have been in last week, so I'm late for this as well..........She knew I was going though as I made the invites, so couldn't miss it!   The colour theme is baby pink, so I kept to this for the acceptance.  The photo make the card look a bit cock-eyed, but it definitely isn't.
Just a simple scalloped Thank You, using 2 embossing folders

I use this 'thank you' stamp quite a lot. (even though I have at least 15 of various sizes and fonts) Today I stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed.

Samantha and Adam just wanted very, very simple invitations..... they chose the colour and style, and I did them exactly as instructed.  Not as fancy as I would've liked to make, but I had to respect their wishes.
The pearls are not meant to be in 'regimental' lines, and I didn;t want each side to 'match-up' when closed, but I had to try to keep to a sort of 'placing' theme. There's 16 on each card, so I used quite a few packs and so far I'm up to 40 metres of ribbon too  :)
I am making the wedding stationery as a wedding gift for Sam & Adam, so I want to make sure they are totally happy with them x
So that's the invites finished and out, all 80 of them......and replied to (except mine). Now to start thinking about the rest.........
Hope you like tonight post and photies......would love you to leave a comment and maybe follow my blog, if you're not already a follower.
Bye for now xx
