Preoccupied with Weddings

I have had the pleasure of helping with crafty end of things for a friend's daughter's wedding which will take place towards the end of the month.  I printed the invitations which the bride to be and her sister then added embellishments....then there was the sewing of 27 metres of bunting. I forgot to photograph the end result (too tired) but I will wait and get a pic when it is insitu.  At the moment, I am nearly finished making pearl bracelets for the bride and bridesmaids and also a bracelet and necklace for the mother of the bride.  When this is done, I will use my Silhouette to cut the place names for the tablesI am always grateful when my friends involve me in the wedding preparations of their offspring. It is a great opportunity to get the creative juices flowing.  

Still on the subject of weddings, this is a card that I made for the friend mentioned in the previous post.  

I CASED it from one that I saw on Pinterest for an engagement card. It was made using  material and stitching.  I used vellum with a roses pattern and a fine line pen.  The sentiment was printed from the computer.  ( I will try to find the card that I cased this from to give credit.... I get so lost on Pinterest....hours pass me by without noticing... my latest addiction)..
