Mr & Mrs

Morning Peeps,

Yayyyy it's finally Friday.  I don't know what it is about the bank holiday weekend's but even though we didn't go back to work until Tuesday it's still been a long week.  Anyway's work's been boring, well maybe not boring but extremely busy, still shouldn't complain I do actually love my job, but then again if I were to win the lottery, I think I'd be off like a shot!

Well today it's my turn to post on the Crafts and Me Blog and if you haven't visited lately you should hop on over, there is so much inspiration from the team and if you like your digi's the new releases are being showcased and are absolutely gorgeous, but don't take my word for it go and have a peek.

Right, lost where I was there waffling away.  I have used the Whiff of Joy Oakley as Groom and Willow as Bride available from Crafts and Me.





I have coloured them using my copic pens and prisma pencils and added some star dust stickles to the veil. Don't know if you can tell but it was extremely sunny when I took this picture. 

My sewing machine decided to do it's own thing at the top, typical, but I have worked out why.  There were lots of layers and the stitching I kind of decided to do as a last minute thing and I had glued, yep glued the edges on before deciding to stitch.  So I think my machine didn't like glue, don't blame it and because it was strips it was hit and miss as to whether the needle went through all the layers or not.  Anyway that's what I get for deciding afterwards!



Ahhhh, aren't they gorgeous.

Oakley and Willow Bride and Groom available from Crafts and Me HERE
