Cute little wedding card.

When I went to the NEC craft show I was very taken with the Lili of the valley stamps and bought a few of them, but they also had sheets of some of their most popular images printed out and die cut ready to pop out, so of course I thought they would be perfect for quick cards, I just love them.
The pink vellum is embossed with the dots embossing folder, I inked the edges of the card and the die cut image with versamark baby pink. Some organza ribbon tied with a couple of hearts from a pack my Funky Hand teamie Jules sent me, all it needed was a sentiment.......

One of the things I did yesterday was to pop in and see my crafty friends here, we get together every thursday, lo and behold Cheryl had just bought these acrylic sentiment stamps from Stampin Up, so I had to stamp a few, and it's perfect for the card, a nice casual font, and not-too-gushing words
and yes, I did make this card last night, so back in production folks.


The car is mended, it needed a new battery, I don't think cars like being left on their own in a garage for months with just a trickle charger for company. We are settling into our 'new' way of life, and gradually adjusting to the time change. Did I really fly over here for just a week when I was younger, and go straight to work after an overnight flight on the way back? How did I do that? When did my internal clock change so stealthily? My clock worked well enough for me to make a trip to Michaels, I wandered around muttering 'I do not need any more paper, I do not need any more paper....' like a mantra, and managed to come away with just a few dollar stamps (oh and a couple of Martha punches, well everyone is allowed a little weakness).
See you tomorrow

How beautiful!!! That image is so adorable and love the simple sentiment. Glad the car is mended. :)

Rufus said...

What a sweet card. Glad to hear that you made it back safe and sound. I had wondered if perhaps you got stuck in the UK with all the volcanic ash etc. You must have gotten out just in time. Glad to hear that it was just a battery for the car, yup I think they get lonely!
Isn't it nice to be warm again?! Of course, everyone here is determined to prove that they have AC. I always take a light jacket with me ~ just in case!

Enfys, this is just too sweet! The embossed vellum is the perfect background for that cute little image. Great job! Also, I'm so glad you didn't leave Michaels empty handed ... it's just so disappointing when that happens.

What a sweet card Enfys! I love the image, and the sentiment is perfect. Love it when you have scalloped cards, so pretty! Happy your car is mended, but also very happy that you flew back to the states when you did!!! I hope people will be able to fly out soon from Europe!

Jules said...

Hi En

Lovely to know that you are all installed and back up and running and in production mode.

The little hearts look lovely on your card .. .. never thought of combining two .. .. as in two hearts in love and getting married. Thank you for the inspiration.

Love Jules xx

Jessica said...

I'm glad you are all settled in, and welcom back! Good to hear you managed the trip to Mike's so well! It's so hard to look at all that paper and not buy some...

Jessica said...

I forgot...no, cars do not like being left alone for a long time. In that respect they are like pets. They often tear up something you need or love. Then you must replace it! Either way, you're always left with a repair bill.
Glad it was only a battery.
Hugs, Jess

Nannieflash said...

Oh Enfys your card is stunning and beautiful. I also love the LOV stamps they are so dainty and cute.
And yes Ive got the same problem when I go into a craft shop, I keep telling myself I really dont need anymore goodies but I always seem to come out with some in my bag. With love and hugs Shirleyxxx

Luisa said...

compòimenti è splendido. buon week end, luisa

Maryellen W said...

Your quick card is very pretty!
So glad your car was easily fixed.
I have to say a mantra too when
shopping at Michaels. "I don't
really need this." It doesn't always work, especially if it's on
clearance! Ha Ha :D

DonnaMundinger said...

This is soo precious, En! The sweet innocence of these stamps gets me every time! Glad you're up and running! xxD

CelticWoman said...

just the bee's knees it is, great image. Hugs

Margie said...

Honestly Enfys, the more paper we have, the harder it is to find exactly the right paper we need for a project! Why I keep buying more is beyond me! The card... OMG! It's adorable! Love the image and the pretty layout! Glad to hear your wheels are running again! Have a great weekend!

Denyze said...

Gorgeous card En, it does look like you've stamped and coloured it. Our car died a few weeks ago, exactly the same problem as yours, new battery needed. You were very lucky getting out the UK when you did, my neighbours son is stuck in Malta,and my friend is stuck in Ireland.
Enjoy playing with your new things.

Anna Marie said...

I LOVE this stamp! I'll have to do some research and find out who sells the Lilli of the Valley stamps. I've never seen them at Michael's.
