Crafty Cardmakers embossing & some wedding pics!

Oh sooo tired!  I've had a lovely day at mum's wedding - back fairly early because their 'reception' isn't until Saturday evening.  We just had champagne in a local cafe/ bar afterwards... followed by yummy hot chocolate lol :o)

Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers for this fortnight is 'embossing', any kind.  So I made my mum's wedding card with this in mind... I don't like it though, so I didn't actually give it to her!  I'm going to make another one to give them at their reception instead.  Anyway, here's my card...

And here's a pic of my mum (and Andrew of course!) looking absolutely gorgeous!

And hubby and the boys playing in the fountain...

Morgan's on the left of the pic, Dex is with Pav.  OMG they were SO soaked by the time they'd done!  I skillfully avoided having too many pics taken - I hate having my pic taken and the few that Pav took with our camera are too revolting to share... so I won't!

Right, I'm planning on sitting with my feet up for a while and doing a bit of commenting, see you soon :o)
