Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone.  Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead full of joy, happiness, health and love.  I haven't shared a card in ages so this is one I made today.

It is a shaker card which is just a little added twist to the standard Wedding Card.  I used the Forever Friends stamp and coloured with copics.  The beads are tiny seed beads but shake beautifully under the layer of acetate.

Supplies - DCWV card blank in black, Forever Friends Stamp, Copics, Memento Ink in Black,
Silver cardstock, acetate, Nesties Labels One, seed beads, glitter star by crafttime and foam adhesive.

I also stamped the image on the envelope and coloured again with Copics.  This card is for my SIL who is going to a wedding tomorrow.

I attended a wedding a few days ago in the most amazing setting - Holy Cross Abbey and have a few photos to share.  It was breathtakingly beautiful in the bitter cold.  It started snowing during the ceremony but I didn't manage to capture it when we were leaving as I was busy trying to stay warm!.

You could feel the history of the place all around you and I was disappointed it was raining / snowing as I was unable to capture as many photographs as I would have liked to.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you are having a wonderful start to 2010.
