My Sisters Wedding Invites


Morning...I think I may have lost a couple of days this week...I can't believe it's Thursday already and that the weekend is just around the corner...the weather here has been very mild over the last couple of days and it is supposed to be even warmer today...not November weather at all really lol!

My sister is getting married in December and back in August she asked me to make her wedding invites...it took me a while to give her an answer whilst my single brain cell whirred away in the background thinking...ooooh eck...what can I do? Fortunately for me my absolutely gorgeous blogging buddy Lynsey gave me the inspiration I needed when I spied a wedding card box on her blog and I fell in love with the design and she very kindly gave me permission to use her idea...thank you Lynsey...you're a star! I've tweaked the design a bit and added my own take on it and this is the finished design! I also made box envies but forgot to photograph them before handing them over...doh...yet another blonde moment!

Silver Mirri Card : From my Stash

Oh Donna this is sublime ! It's so elegant... Your sister will be over the moon ! Love the swirls... My daughter Anne asked me to make her wedding invitations when Francois and her get married and I must say I am a little bit apprehensive about it.. Hope I will come with something as stunning as you ! Lots of hugs and love from Catherine

What a great invitation for your sister's wedding, Donna. I love the colors - that bow is scrumptious and the swirls really add that elegance, doesn't it. You did a fantastic job and I know your sister will love it! Love the flowers - so perfect with that silver bordered background piece!
