Morning Peeps, it's the first Sunday of the month which means the start of our new challenges at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where our themes are 'Anything Stamped with option of Roses' and 'Make it Masculine'. At both challenges there are three prizes to be won, at the first from Colemans who are sadly closing, I have demoed so many times over the years and will miss their craft warehouse, the other is from Craft Stash.
Above I used a couple of rather neglected Penny Black stamps, the Rose and Venetian Summer along with one of my own sentiments. After stamping the Rose I cut around the top elements and then placed an oval die behind the cut section so it rested over the aperture. Minimal colouring, a second oval aperture and finito.
Here we have AALL and Create Little Wren
, stamped very simply onto a background splattered with some Oxide, the letter W stamped in the same ink, some washi tape and word from another A&C set.
As some of you know, Thursday was the wedding of Anysia our eldest Granddaughter which was re-scheduled from 2020. This time a totally different style of wedding to what was planned the first time round, it was the first I had attended in a Civil location but it was lovely. The venue was a beautifully restored circa 17th Century Tudor Mansion set in amazing grounds and 18 elegant rooms where we and close family stayed over part of the long weekend.
The weather was beautiful so the ceremony took place outside in the Bandstand with guests seated on white chairs.
The Brides family and siblings, Brother Zachary is getting married in August and sister Azaria next July so plenty more opportunities for new outfits and hats!
Some of my lovely offspring and other halves, there should be one with all of them when we see the formal photos. But I'm still the shortest of the bunch.
In the intervening two years baby Margo came along and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
And it's 'cheers' from me with a peach belleni!
