I am so sorry you have had to stare at that same card for a whole week! I like to post more often … but I tell you … life is just constantly throwing me curve balls! I have some BIG NEWS!!! Skye (3rd daughter – 4th kid) & Mitch are GETTING MARRIED!!! Yes … the big proposal happened on Saturday morning … and we are so thrilled for them both! Mitch is perfect for our Skye! 🙂 And … they are SOOOO happy!

Mitch organised a very romantic ‘sunrise surf’ & cliff top breakfast picnic. Skye was completely surprised because we had been so careful not to let on that Mitch had talked to Gav about a week & a half before! So … no … it wasn’t a complete surprise to us! They had been talking about it for a few months now! 😉 BUT … I am in the throes of organising Skye’s Country Western 21st party on 5th July … and suddenly had to start thinking “WEDDING”!!! They are keen to be married before the end of the year. I am not so sure that is going to happen! But … we at least need to get a venue booked … and then can take a little more time with other decisions!

Anyway … I thought I should share a card. I didn’t make this for Mitch & Skye … but it seemed appropriate to share an engagement card with you all

Well Scripted T&J'13 (1)Well Scripted T&J'13 (4)The “Congratulations” is silver embossed. The rest is pretty self explanatory! I have to acknowledge help with the design from Loll Thompson. This was CASED from her gorgeous card that I found via Pinterest! Any stamping I am doing at the moment is urgent & CASED!!! Out of necessity! I was beginning to think that life was going to slow down … with Stacey’s baby due on 1st Aug (and she finishes work on 5th July) … so no more Bree baby sitting!!! 😥 😥 I will miss her being around! And … with Skye doing some of my (Gav’s) bookwork to earn some money … life was easing! How wrong was I!!! 🙄  🙄  😀

Anyway … must go … I need to prepare for my first lesson (teaching) at EFL (ESL) next week. The regular teacher is away … and I am filling in … GULP! I am really enjoying ‘helping’ in class … but … hhhmmm … not so sure about the teaching thing! Plenty of other jobs to do, too! See you when I can! Hugs xxx

    Just take one event at a time I think Andrea. Although with a wedding there does need some early planning. Sending love to you all – and hopefully you can catch times out here and there to breathe.
