Flashback Friday


Sweet Cheeks and I went out this morning to deliver these very simple Golden Wedding Invites and Place Cards. He thought it was great fun knocking on the door and handing over the box saying 'Special Delivery'! :)

It reminded me that this week, Flashback Friday want to see the first wedding card you made.


I made this in March 2010 for Sweet Stampin. I think I was quite pleased with it at the time and looking at it again now, it's not too bad!

I recently came across the first card I ever made, it's the reason I started crafting in the first place. It's an invitation to my wedding, I just couldn't find anything in the shops I liked. I think the wedding was cheaper than my subsequent addiction! :)

I must apologise for my lack of visiting the past few weeks. Cupcake and then these invites have had me a little preoccupied, normal services should resume shortly...

What's it like, there are just not enough hours in the day some days are there?
Your "old" card is lovely, you should see mine, there was no matting and layering and stipid stickers. Debbiexx
