Hi world and Wednesday peepers
Have a look over at the  stamping-ground
to see what Linda and the rest of the world is upto.
A very quick visit to my desk this week (I still have a necklace to finish for the wedding on saturday).
As you can see there is quite a lot going on here.

In the middle is the card I have just finished for the happy couple.
 It is a bit alternative and not your usual wedding card at all, but as emma is arty I think she will like it.
I think I am about done with wedding stuff! LOL.

I have blogged a bit about drying nails with the heat gun lately (yes I know it might be dangerous). Anyway the gun got it's own back as I was about to make the card. . .  it died ! No, not funny! I managed to borrow one from my mum now I need to get a new one.

Here is the card close up.
The stamp is tweedle dee and tweedle dum from Octopode, I have just brought 2 stamps from them and I love them already.
The backing paper is the same as the invitations but run through a tim holtz texture fade. Then I ran faded cordoroy and sapphire over the top.
The greeting is from papermania, so are the gems in the eyes.

Below is my messy side where I have been painting the letters for the wedding. . . . . . . . . nearly finished, I just have to finish the flower heads on the & and the G.
The table cloths are also white so I had to make a plinth to put them on (bottom right hand side) God I hope Emma doesn't read this before Saturday!!!!

This was supposed to be a quick post and then finish my necklace, so I'm off



  1. That is the funkiest wedding card I've ever seen - fantastic, I love it :) !! Think the painted initials are going to go down a storm too. Hope the wedding goes swimmingly. May the weather be hot and the champagne cold :D xx

  2. love your desk. I might have toi have a go at drying my nails with the heat gun lol

  4. Oh great stuff - and the wedding day willmake al of the work so worthwhile - the initials are a gorgeous touch, I'm perfectly sure that Emma will be delighted. Love the card, again, pretty sure that we make these things with the bride in mind...boys seem less interested generally!
