Christmas Kim '12 (4)Hi bloggies!

I am here … but only for a few minutes. I spent 3 hours yesterday (with Mum’s help) ironing THE bridal gown, 1 bridesmaid dress, 3 suits & shirts for my boys & Gav & my dress. I still have a pile sitting here … THE groom’s suit & shirt … 2 groomsmen suits & shirts … 1 more bridesmaid dress & 1 flower girl dress. So … I need to get onto that job while Bree is asleep! 2 sleeps! I can hardly believe it. After the “extended” weather forecast saying for 2 weeks that the day will be sunny … suddenly there is the possibility of showers!!!!! 😯 With an outdoor ceremony … this may be a problem. 🙄 But … we know that God has everything in His hands … and no matter what … it is going to be a beautiful wedding!

Christmas Kim '12 (1)Christmas Kim '12 (3)I have had some wonderful inspiration from my blog friends for my Christmas Cards this year. This design was by Kim Singdahlsen … a fav of mine. Her cut image square (a patchwork quilt) was a little smaller … but I managed to make the bigger squares from the “Snow Festival” DSP work with Kim’s layout. (Wish I had remembered to put the little heart on the tree! 😀

Well … off to the ironing board! All is calm … but we are all pretty tired! I can’t believe we have to get up at 4am on Saturday … for a 4.45am hair appointment! (What a wonderful hairdresser we have!) Sheree had her heart set on a breakfast wedding … and the ceremony begins at 8am! But … with so much positive feedback (esp. from the boys — a buffet breakfast — YUM!) we are sure no one will mind the early start! I will be back to see you all once I have recovered from our big weekend!!! 😉

    Super cute set of cards Andrea. Love the darling critters and the glittery paper. Hopefully the latest forcast was wrong, and you had sunshine all day long… and hopefully it was one of the best days for you and the bride! :o)

    Cute cards Andrea, the glimmer paper, and the little trees are so cute. Looks like you had your hands full with all that ironing…. and a hard hairdresser is hard to come by, glad you have a good one xx
