'Will you do me the Greatest Honour...........'

Evening Everyone
Are you having a good week? I am getting really excited because I am off to the Woodware Retail weekend  on Saturday with my friend Jane Gill.
Before I go I think I will be chained to my laptop trying to organise some posts just in case I can't blog.
It has become a major addiction and I have managed every day this year bar one, so it would be a shame to mess that up.
I don't usually make the same card more than once as those of you that know me will know, so the card(s)  that I am sharing tonight are a real labour of love.
My lovely new friend Vicky asked me to make cards for her Bridesmaids.
We got together over coffee to thrash out some ideas, and choose stamps, and then the rest was up to me!!
I had to make 5 cards for her 'Girls', each with their name on the outside and a request inside for them to be Bridesmaid, Maid of Honour or Chief Bridesmaid. What a lovely and very unique way to ask for their help on her special day!!
Vicky told me exactly what words she wanted on the front of each card and I printed them out from my computer - it's the nearest I get to 'doing digi's' lol.
The main image is 'My Mother's Dress' which was all the rage many years ago.
Cream, Gold and Sage are the colours that Vicky has chosen for her Big Day so were the perfect choice for the Bridesmaid cards.
I used 8"x8" cards and stamped and embossed the background using a lovely Hobby Art flower stamp, versamark and Frantage Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel.
The Sage green panel was dry embossed using a Butterfly embossing folder and then cut out using a Nestie.
I added a little Gold Metallic Rub-on and some Stardust pen.
Each card has a dotted border added along with tiny gold peel-off dots, some larger metallic dots and a name.
Each card had this on the inside (personalised according to the position they were asked to fill) and then Vicky was adding her own sheet of instructions.
I asked her today if they had all been delivered and she said that they had and that they had made each of the girls cry......in a good way I have to add.
Better try and get to bed now. Only two more sleeps till I'm off to Woodware, as my Grandchildren would say.
By the way I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the truly wonderful comments that have been left for me recently.
I do try and pop by before I publish them to say a personally thank you but I knew that this was just not possible at the moment so I say it once again  THANK YOU ALL xx
