Feeling rough...but it's not what you think...'s your weekend been so far? Mine's been pretty good...Saturday was the wedding and need I tell you the weather wasn't nice? But that didn't stop it being a beautiful day. The ceremony, in Bothwell, was lovely...there was tears and laughter... the bride was beautiful as was my friend who was wearing a beautiful pink dress (which shocked a lot of us when she walked into the church as she wears either black, cream, navy or burgundy!) A mini bus was arranged to take those who weren't driving to the reception at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh. I was going solo (it's a long story!) and I didn't fancy the drive back from Edinburgh so I hopped on the bus with the others. There was drinks to keep us going until dinner...although I had a glass (plastic cup lol) of champagne on the bus, I stuck to water the rest of the night as I was driving back from the church. The meal was delicious and the speeches entertaining. Then came the band...I don't know who they were but they were fab. I didn't take part in the dancing much (another long story!) although I did a mean Conga in between courses lol! If anyone has been to an Italian wedding they'll know they're very lively : ) There was a lot of Gay Gordon and barn style dancing going on which I definitely made sure my bum was firmly fixed to my seat. I'm surprised there are no serious injuries when these 'dances' are going on as they look extremely dangerous and I swear it's an excuse for people to fling each other about..bodies were flying all over the place!! I managed to get back on the mini bus about 12:30 and was home in my bed for 1:55am....and that my dear peeps is why I'm feeling rough...nothing to do with alcohol but lack of sleep. Sorry it's nothing more exciting lol. I did forget to take a picture of the wedding card...I had it boxed and wrapped before I realized.

I did take a picture of a card I made tonight for my neighbor's granddaughter who is 3 this week.

I love these Penny Black images...I think she's one of my favourites and perfect for a little girl. I stamped her in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my Copics...haven't used those babies for a while and I'm sure they've felt neglected! The cs is Bazzil but I don't know where the pp is from...I've had it forever. The sentiment is computer generated and ribbon SU! For some reason the star doesn't look great but believe me in person it is twinkling bright : )

I'm going to try and have an early night tonight as I've another busy week ahead of me. I'm really looking forward to one day saying I've nothing much happening lol but I can't see that happening in the near future. In fact it's going to be the exact opposite.

Hope everyone has a good week.

Catch ya later x

ps There are hopefully going to be a few changes to my blog this week...hope you'll like them : )

Who is Gay Gordon? A friend of yours perhaps?
