A quick wedding card and look what arrived!

A workmate asked me for a wedding card on Tuesday- for this weekend! I had bought these lovely swirls and flourishes stamps(Personal Impressions) from hobbycraft last week, so decided to use them with gold embossing powder and some flat backed pearls. The sentiment was computer generated and cut out using labels 2 Nestabilities. I won't be doing any more heat embossing until the heatwave is over, as I had to have a shower afterwards!
I've been all excited twice this week - once when I won some super blog candy from Glenda (will post something as soon as it arrives!), and again when my parcel from Joanna Sheen arrived. I now have super organised promarkers. Before this I had a box that was rather noisy and I had wrecked two pencil cases by forcing the zip! At Joanna Sheen they sell the best value promarkers I have found at £1.59 each and P&P is free! I ordered on Sunday Night and they arrived at work on Tuesday - how good is that? It is so good to know I can find the right colour without tipping them out on the floor!

Beautiful card, Sally. Those flourishes are gorgeous. And I'm impressed with your Promarker organisation!

Hi Sally. So well done on your Glenda win. Not that I am envious or anything, lots of teeth gnashing!!!!!! I reckon you and Lynne have been fixing things between you!!!! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
Seriously, I love your wedding card, those flourishes are to die for.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. It means a lot and also means I can visit you too. I've had quite a long look back on your lovely blog. Lots of inspiration and I found the snails very interesting but have to be honest and say I'd rather have my dog even if he is more of a nuisance and eats a lots more, Lol!

Congratulations on your EI stamp win. I so wanted to win some but it looks like I'll have to buy them tomorrow when I go up for the Open Day. I can't wait.

I love your flourish wedding card. Very classy and elegant!

Will be back!
