Weddings and Sausage Rolls

It's been a weekend of 2 halves ... yesterday was glorious and I got a good bit of my fence painted - a job I love doing!  No really, I could happily paint fencing all day long!
Today was a bit icky and damp, but I'd a few cards I needed to make so that was the perfect excuse to leave the rest of the fence painting for another day.

This first one uses this lovely Stamping Bella image.  Apparently the bride is a redhead, so I did my best with her hair.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added to the roses and sparkle to the bunting and to the 'frilly' bits of her dress.  My bunting is an oldie stamp from many moons ago - think it was from Creative Inspirations but I wouldn't swear to that.  I must confess, I love how this one turned out :)

And here's one for a giggle ... its for a student we've had in work this past year who always judged how good an event he was at on the quality of the sausage rolls!  It's turned into a running joke with us, so I reckon he'll like this ;)
My picture was stolen from Google and then I just added the sentiment and a little gold star.


  1. I love how it turned out too Lynne, fabulous image used. It all works together so beautifully. Thank you for sharing over at That's Crafty and joing the Anything Goes blog challenge..
    Best Wishes Tracey.

  2. I love your very personal cards today. They both turned out really well, and that wedding card is just fantastic! The bride looks like a perfect redhead to me.

  3. Love the in joke in the second card. The stamping Bella wedding stamp is my go to for wedding cards, love the clean look of your card x

  4. I love the Stamping Bella Up Town Girls and this is one of their sweetest images that you colored beautifully, the banners add to the happy, festive mood of the lovely couple. I'm guessing this beauty went to Paul and Nicole? I bet they loved it.
