Another commissioned Wedding card and some exciting news


I have had more orders for Wedding cards this year than for any other. Pinks were requested for this one and this has to be one of my favourite Wedding cards I have made recently. I used DI Spun Sugar and distressing tool around all the edges. I decided to colour the groom's suit burgundy for a change and I really like it.

And my exciting news is that I have a commission to design for another magazine so I am hoping this will lead to regular commissions from them. I was also asked if I would like to demonstrate at a Norfolk craft shop. I had a long chat with the owner but I really feel it would be too much. The shop is 44 miles away and I would need to be there from 9-5. I would have to make samples with the products they send me ready to demo. It was lovely to be asked but I don't want to take on such a big commitment. I love the magazine work as I can do that at home at times that suit me.

Off for breast screening this morning and then visiting my Mum this afternoon after a trip to The Range and a huge new Next store.

A beautiful image and love the colour choice. Pretty embellies too.
Congrats on your new magazine work. I agree it is easier to work when you want to. I do enjoy demoing in store and it is very good money. Although there is a lot of prep work to do before the day. I will email you an update on move. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Another gorgeous wedding card Marianne! I do like the colour of the groom's clothes, it goes so well with the rest of the card design. I'm so pleased for you getting another magazine commission. I get three craft mats and often see your cards there. It did sound like a lot of work at the shop but I do agree that it was nice to be asked. Hope you had a good time at the range and with your mum. Debra x
