Well its a tad chilly here this morning and I have so much to do before tonight’s workshop and thought I’d start off with a Coffee and a Blog post!
A couple of weeks ago we treated ourselves to a little weekend getaway. Well Hubby’s nephew was getting married on the South Coast so we took an extra couple of days to relax in and around Ulladulla on NSW South Coast.
Now when it comes to Wedding Cards you want to make them that extra little bit special and here is the card I created for the lovely couple
I used our Shimmer White Cardstock but wanted it more ‘shimmery’ so spritzed it with a mix of our Frost White Shimmer Paint andÂ Rubbing Alcohol.Â It worked a treat so after punching out umpteen little flowers in Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Bashful Blue I spritzed them as well.Â Now if you are going to do this technique you need to make sure you allow time for the spritzed pieces to dry before assembling the card other wise you will be assembling the card the morning you leave!
I’d only recently purchased the Elegant Lines embossing folder and now wonder why it took me so long to get it – it was perfect for this card! Dont forget to check out this month’s special for the Big Shot dies that are 10% off – just in time for Christmas too!! Just click on the advert in my sidebar for all the details!
Here we are all dressed up …
Now you couldnt go down to the South Coast without going to the Beach and as hubby and I used to have a caravan down at St George’s Basin (pre kids) we knew where to stop on the way home …
Hyam’s Beach is known for its ‘white’ sand and is reported to be one of the Whitest sand beaches in the world! The water was so clear when we were there and there were some people not too far outÂ – about 100 metres – snorkelling and looking at the Octopus and Stingrays that were there!
While we were at the reception at Mollymook Beach on the Saturday we actually saw a whale jumping in and out of the water … actually Caitie was the first to see it. Pretty special.
It was a lovely weekend and Kat picked the perfect day as the weather on Sunday was a bit dubious and now I’m looking forward to freeing up a weekend here and there and taking a few more ‘breaks’.
