Wedding Cards

Stephen's cousin is getting married this coming weekend and his mum asked if I could make a wedding card from them, I get kinda a nervous making a card for my mil, she can be quite a difficult customer, also we tend to argue as I don't like to take any money from her and she doesn't like me to make her cards without paying me.....so she doesn't ask me very often purely for that reason......lol!!!!The above card is from myself and the rest of "The Cody Crew" i.e. hubby and our children. I love these papers from SU but can you believe they are being discontinued, how very dare they....gggrrrrrr.... so I've made sure to stock up...lol!!!
This is the card I made for the in-laws to giving the happy couple. I've stuck with the same papers becuase I liked the colours. The theme of the wedding is based around the beach. They live in West Wales, a beautiful part of the country btw. I didn't have anything in my stash to do with the beach so I just went with the colours of the sand and sea. I have to say a massive thanks to Kerry for the info she passed onto me regarding the font, thanks luvly xxx


My mil seemed quited pleased with the card when I handed it over to her, with trembling hands I have to add. Her comments were " ooooo that's nice " which made me laugh, then we had a little debate regarding money...... lol!!!!
I hope you've all had an enjoyable bank holiday. My in-laws took Georgia & Yasmin out for the day, which gave me ample opportunity to catch up with some orders that I've had, plus I've had to make some sample cards for the kids at school. We are having another card making session in the lunch hour tomorrow and I've promised to take in some of my crafting gear and help them make Fathers Day cards, should be fun...mmmmm... I hope.....lol!!
