I am writing this quick post as I am eating my lunch. The past couple of days have been frantic and are going to get even busier. My niece and her fiance are getting married in July this year. They are bringing the date forward due to to family health problems. They asked me to make their invitations, which is a privilage, but they need them as soon as possible. This all came about on Thursday night, I sent them a choice of cards yesterday and I am now making their chosen cards, reply cards, table place setting cards etc.

I made this card above the other day but this is me just posting it.

I made it using PB images colured with Promarkers, See D's sentiments, Sizzlets alphabet and DCWV papers.
