Vintage Wedding

What a great time we had at the weekend at the two day Village Festival. Great atmosphere, loads of people, 3,500 adults plus children on Saturday and even more on Sunday. It was my best ever event, steady sales both days and would have done even better but it started to rain about 3.30 on Sunday. It left off for a while but then came down heavier so people started to leave and instead of being there until 6pm we all packed up about 4.30 which was a shame but other than that the weather was lovely. All my efforts of the last two weeks certainly paid off and I had lots of compliments about the quality of my cards. I also got an order for 2 doorhangers and a lady who said she will ring me for 5 Christmas bags for her grandchildren. Whether she will or not of course remains to be seen.

Yesterday hubby was off and we had to catch up on things having been out all weekend so sorry I haven't had a chance to catch up with you all. I shall be making a start on bloghopping and crafting today. I haven't made anything for the last 4 days and am itching to get started again.

Today I am sharing a Wedding card I made for somebody I used to work with and have met up with again thanks to Facebook.

Marianne...your wedding card is lovely. I really like the die cut edging with the hearts at the bottom. The little piece of lace running across the card is also a very nice, vintage/shabby addition. I love your layered and distressed papers as well. The vintage photograph is perfect! Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
