Good morning, sorry I haven't posted again for days, but I just don't know where the days are going. I thought being retired ( yes I have finally done it ). I would have more time, NO!!!  The days are rushing by.

I was asked yesterday  to make a Wedding Card for Friday.   No hurry!!!   Any way i was asked to make it plain, not fussy so this is what I made.

kept it simple.  A 7x7 prefold card, the poppy embossing folder was one that my daughter Gillian bought for me and it didn't have a name on it, the congratulations stamp is from a " forever friends" set of wedding stamps.   Ribbon from my stash.  I did stamp " On Your Wedding Day" on the inside, forgot to photograph it. I have got out of the habit of photographing every stage.

Thank you for all your kind comments on my gift of Thank You cards, Tammys godparents loved them and we're grateful for them as they had rather a lot of folk to thank.

  4. Hi Hazel,
    what a super card.
    I love white on white card they are so elegant.
    That embossing folder looks like a wonderful one to own.
    Now if you had asked me I would have told you once you retire time just seems to get shorter.
    Maybe it's because you relax more so things get done a a steadier pace perhaps.
    In any rate welcome to the world of retirement, and I do hope you enjoy it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
