It's been a while since I blogged here. That's largely due to the telecom company who saw fit to cut us off from the internet for what seemed like ages. It is amazing how much we had come to rely on the internet, and how much we missed it!

Today is a very special day, as my cousin a few times removed (no idea how you're supposed to count that out) is getting married. We would have been at the wedding at the moment, if it weren't for our little boy getting an ear infection. He's coping well but very tired, and in no way up to celebrating, or being babysat.

So in her and her husband's honour I am posting the card I made for them, and entering it in a few challenges.

While I am at it I would like to thank Feline Playful for all the work they put in, making it so easy for me and many others to find these challenges.

At Bunny Zoe's Crafts the theme is: 'Celebrations'. It couldn't work out better, could it?

This shaped card from hunkydory fits nicely into this month's Hooked on Craft challenge of 'More than one fold', while it was absolutely perfect for the purpose of a wedding card as well.

And then there's That Craft Place with  'Anything goes' while they relaunch early. 

So those are the three I am entering, to try and get back into the swing of things. I must say it did feel strange, and I had to push myself a bit to restart.
Hopefully I'll be lucky.

It is quite a few weeks ago now we received an invitation by a lovely young couple to their wedding. It came out of the blue, and we are so happy for them and chuffed to be invited. So I have been wanting to make a special card for them to congratulate them and to let them know we will most certainly be coming to celebrate them!

Because I've been in hospital, it has taken this long to get around to making it, so it needs to be sent off quickly, before they start to think we've forgotten all about them.

It just so happens Crafter's Companions ( have a challenge running called 'Love is in the Air'. When I came across it I immediately thought of entering this card. There's loads of people entering this challenge so I guess my chances are slim...

By the way: Proficiat means Congratulations, but you had probably gathered that.
