Hi my blogging friends,
Firstly I would like to welcome my new followers. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and to join me, on our journey.
Hope you all had a good Easter break. I did a Craft Fair on Friday. I sold so much, that I thought I was going to have a sell out!! Now trying to replace stock for my next Fair, on this coming Saturday!
This card I made, was for a very special couple, that had their wedding on Good Friday. Unusual day but with good reason.
I won't go into all the details, but it was made for the niece, of the Manager of the charity that I fund raise for. It is a heart wrenching story.
When S. (the bride), was a young child, her Daddy sadly passed away from Cancer. A few years later, her Mother remarried and S. became very close to her new Daddy. They both shared the love of words.
When she was in her early teens, her Father became ill with Cancer and sadly, he passed away too. She was devastated, as you can imagine.
A few years on and her Mother remarried. S. adored her new Father and they became very close. S. met her husband to be and they made a date for their wedding, for late summer this year. Everything was wonderful.
Her Father suddenly felt unwell and was soon diagnosed with terminal cancer. Words cannot describe what effect this news had on S. So, as she was determined to have her Father walk her down the aisle, the wedding was brought forward to last Friday.
The words on the front of the card, were written by her (now) Father, for her and her groom. It was shortened, to fit on the card. Inside, I put a quote that was written for her, by her second Father.
I had to have a few tissues to hand, when making this card.
The embossing was an Anna Griffin folder and the aperture was Opulent Ovals Nestie Die.
The butterflies and the hearts, I made with Martha Stewart Paper Clay and coloured with Distress Inks.
Flowers, lace and ribbon from my stash. The leaves are a Marianne Die.
Hopefully, my next posting will not be a sad story, although this was also a happy one too.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely messages. I will always return to your blogs too.
