Wedding Card

Here's a sweet wedding card I made using Fiskars punches - I used the Egalatine lever punch, and hand held cross stitch punch. I just punched a circle, and covered it with the blooms to make my bouquet. Quite quick and easy....

Talking of weddings, I am on the hunt for shoes and a bag for 'the big day' in September. Have you shopped for shoes lately? There seems to be three variations on a basic theme available:

Ballet flats - not exactly what I want to wear with my 'mother of the bride' finery

Glittery heels - most of the heels are precipitous six inch high spindles, some with added platforms and ankle straps to add to the danger. If I wore these, I would probably end up in the nearest hospital with a broken ankle, or suffer backache for the rest of my life. What happened to moderation?

Granny shoes - okay, I'm a Granny, but that doesn't mean I have to wear sensible court shoes with blocky heels like the Queen....she is in her nineties bless her, by the time I get there, I will probably be glad to wear them, but that day hasn't arrived yet

So the hunt for elegant, pretty shoes with a medium heel continues today. Wish me luck!


  1. Pretty card, I like that shade of green. Good luck on the shoe hunt!

  2. Really pretty project Enfys.

  3. Very pretty card Enfys. Hope you manage to find elegant and comfortable shoes. What colour will you be wearing? x

  4. Your card is lovely, and just in time for wedding season, although I think it would be a pretty Mother's Day or birthday card, too! Good luck shoe shopping!

    I love this bouquet card!!! So very pretty!!! I have the same difficulty show shopping too! Lots of luck finding the right pair!!!

  6. What a lovely card Enfys, and something easily adjusted to fit the specific wedding colors. I agree that it would work very nicely for other occasions as well. I hope you find the perfect shoes and bag for your Daughter's wedding. I find it extremely difficult to purchase shoes off the rack as my foot is an odd fit. It seems that I can find style "OR" comfort, but never both. In my youth, I would always opt for style ... but at this point in my life, comfort is my major concern. What is it they say? ... "If the shoe fits, buy one in every color!" That is my shoe shopping motto these days, except that I would add "comfortably" to the fit of the shoe.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
