Weddings at a Passion for Promarkers

Good Morning Everyone, 
It's time for a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this week the theme is...
                                            WEDDINGS
I've used 'Over the Threshold' from Lili of the Valley for todays card. This was an order for a friend whose daughter was getting married.
I've coloured them with promarkers and added a few liquid pearls. The background papers are from my favourite pad from Lili of the Valley - Always and Forever. The stripy paper is from Craft Creations.

This is an 8" card so I also needed to make a box to put it in!

Hello Everyone, 
Well that's the first day of the summer holidays done. We've been to York Maze today with lots of friends......about 18 grown ups and 39 children!!! We got there at 10.30 this morning and arrived home at 6pm. Completely shattered and a little sun burnt! but a lovely day.
I've got a quick card to share today...this was an order for a friend, and I managed a quick photo...the glue hadn't quite dried and it looks like the ribbon is wonky....but it was straight..honest!
I've coloured it with....oh no...no promarkers!! 

I've used a crafts too flower die, a MB pippi butterfly die and a crafts too embossing folder. The sentiment dies are from Lili of the Valley and the ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

My very first shaker card!

Hello Everyone, 
The challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week is to make a Shaker card....I've never made one of these before so I thought I'd have a go....I didn't have any acetate so I used a piece of plastic from a food container....I don't think I made the 'shaker' part quite deep enough as the sequins keep getting stuck...either that or I put too many in!! Anyway here it is!!
I've used 'After You' from Penny Black and the background papers are from Lili of the Valley.
I've used a Marianne Creatables Snowflake die, a Marianne Creatables icicle die and ribbon from my stash, oh yes and lots of glitter on the snowflakes and icicles.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp - Shake It
ABC Christmas Challenge - M for Mail
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra - Anything Christmas
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - A Winters Scene

I've got a very busy week this week. It was Tom's sports day yesterday, we have Emma's sports day tomorrow and then Tom's school trip to Magna on Thursday (I'm going as a parent helper!). Inbetween that we have rainbows, dancing, cricket matches and a trip to Exscape with cubs!!....I need a cuppa!! Roll on the school holidays!!
