Okay, I teared up and outright cried several times during the Royal Wedding. What love in their eyes for each other and how sweet the wedding was.  I can't believe I wasn't invited. Oh yeah, I don't have a fascinator. Thanks to Liz at  http://crafty-lizc.blogspot.com/ for the correct spelling.

Here is another birthday card. This is created by measuring and making a template for the squares and sponging in DI. Then I stamped the flowers and stems from Clearly Besotted and added a sentiment from PTI.  I added a few seqins and that was that. Be kind to one another and keep love alive.

  1. Haven't watched the wedding yet, but hopefully our recording got it. So hoping this is right for both of them! Love everything about this card, Brenda--beautiful images & I love masked areas for sponging! That is one great BD sentiment--wish I had it! Boy, if only we lived close & could share our stashes! Sending hugs, Greta

  4. The royal wedding was just beautiful, I watched it on TV with a group of friends. I didn't get an invitation either, Brenda...... and I had my fascinator ready! ;-) We've been to Windsor Castle a number of time, it's such a lovely setting for a wedding and the weather was just perfect today.

    I love your beautiful card, lovely images and a great sentiment. The sequins are a perfect finishing touch. xx

  5. Brenda, this card is amazing! I love your colors and your layout! Awesome sentiment too!! I can't believe all the cards I have missed on your blog and your wonderful stories! I am glad you are going back to rehab for the exercises, especially if they really help! Your butterfly cards for the Twofer were wonderful too! Happy Sunday friend! We have a birthday today (11 year old grandson) and Lily's Confirmation! I am her sponsor! And my Dad is coming to the service! Have a great Sunday! Heart Hugs, Colleen

  6. What a beautiful card design and I love the colors. I watched the You Tube version of the wedding as I was not able to view it at the proper time but I agree they sure looked happy. I thought he appeared a bit nervous while waiting for the bride but I think all grooms feel that way on their wedding day so it was nice to see that sort of a normality too. I also enjoyed the sermon given and the music.

  8. I watched only some scenes from the wedding in the news buletin, Brenda. I think they are a great couple!
    I love your beautiful card, my friend. Once again, you made a super card. The stamp and the colours and gorgeous. Kisses!

  9. Beautiful card Brenda! Love the colours you chose as well. And I also welled up (along with Parsnip) more than once on Saturday! A beautiful wedding and they had such a wonderful day weatherwise too. We live not too far away from Windsor (in the great scheme of things) and it's a magnificent place to visit as Liz says. The town is so quaint and the castle and chapel are fabulous.

    Also, it's on the flight holding path into Heathrow and I always love it when we get 'stacked' on a flight coming into the airport so you can get a good look from above. Always have a little giggle wondering if the corgis are barking and the Queen is raising her eyebrows or shaking her fist when planes come in low over the castle! :)

    Hugs

  15. EZPZ but so full of interest and color! What a great design, Brenda! We all watched the wedding together in Vancouver on Sunday night. One of the ladies is originally from Wales and the other from Britain! And, of course, I had to speak British and be one of them, lol! It was simply charming with the animated Bishop thrown in for a bit of comic relief! He sure got the staid British upper class to change their facial expressions, haha! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

  16. I love how you've masked and sponged these squares! It wouldn't be easy for me to do! The flowers fit so perfectly and the yellow and orange are so cheerful! Love the sentiment too!
