I may have thought I had a cold a few days ago, but yesterday I realised that now I really did!
In this Blame Culture we live in, I'm blaming a poor little 1 year old baby who has just started going to a day nursery for a day a week.  Such a lot of new germs for a baby to pick up and take home to his daddy who then took said germs to his office and shared them around among his colleagues - who of course then took them back with them to their own homes and so on and so forth.  And this bug is a real humdinger, I can tell you!
I suppose it's not really Baby Ps fault, but I'm blaming him anyway, because I can!

Here's a wedding card I made a few days ago to send away for a customer.  What a fab excuse to break open the MME 6x6 "Lost and Found" paper pad!  Naughty really as I do have a huge lot of these papers in the 12x12 size, but somehow the little ones are just so cute and easy to handle
Lots of gorgeousness from Creative Treasures here too: the lovely minty coloured Card Candy, the deep aqua rose, the creamy brown Apple Blossom flower, the pretty white lace, the pearl sprays and the seam binding
Shockingly (hehe) I didn't have exactly the right colour of seam binding - but I did have the right shade of ink pad so I used it to dye enough white seam binding to make the ribbon for the bottom of the card and a rosette flower.
Also used: organza circles to make backing for flowers, Prima Artful flowers, coiled rose (scrap of MME paper) Spellbinders Nesties Labels 18

I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out - it's ages since I made a paper frill like this and I always love the way they look.
That's it for today, I hope the sun is shining on you wherever you are

Charisma: LOVE
Stampavie and More: LOVE
