And may you live happily ever after.

Good morning and how are you this dreich Tuesday morning?
I had a busy day yesterday so no post from me, didn't sit down till late and was "poop" so enjoyed a wee dram and a treat instead of crafting or blogging.
With hubby on a course, two boys and a dog plus work, life can get pretty hectic.  Last night I had a meeting at the school, I was shown around the various classrooms and got a wee taster of lessons that my youngest is having.  I found it all very interesting till I got to P.E and Drama where parent participation was required!  Yikes.  Still our little group soon got to know each other.
I know where my youngest gets his dread of Drama from now.  I was right out of my comfort zone!
It was a great idea, to give the parents an insight to life at school.  Oh me, I wish I was at school now, the teachers are better, the equipment is better....it looks very interesting and fun.

Back to today and I have a wedding card for you.  This wedding was at the weekend so I am sure I can share now.  One of my pals at work showed me her wedding invite and asked if I could do something similar as a card for them.
I think she was quite surprised with my interpretation, "Erika, it's just like it!"
We aim to please, that being the royal "we!"  LOL.

I have printed the writing on the computer, added a sliver of silver pearlescent card together with some lemon grosgrain ribbon and a bit of bling!
Just like the invitation but with my own twist added.

The time has come where I must head back into work.
This working four days a week certainly eats into my mighty fine crafting time.
At work we were told it is only something like 15 weeks till Christmas Eve!  What a nightmare.
It doesn't bare thinking about as the festive time of year is everyone's favourite time, NOT!

I am hoping to get back near the computer later today to catch up with you all.
I think there is only hockey after school today so I should get chance after tea and final doggy walk, lets hope it isn't still raining as getting wet once in the day is more than enough.
Enjoy your Tuesday ladies.

Hi Erika,
what a truly elegant card, and I love the colours and your very fab design.
I bet the Happy Couple were over the moon with this.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A beautifully, elegant card. My printer won't take thicker card to print on for a card front which is annoying. I love the grey and lemon theme.
