Today I have a CASE'd card I did the other day on my day off for our National Day (Waitangi Day)  The original card was in Australian Cardmaking Stamping and  Papercrafting.


I used the same colours and sentiment for the my card, but used some Hero Arts stamps for my flourish and little flower.  I masked either side of the centre and used some Distress inks.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.

Yesterday we went to the wedding of my son's friend Mike to Kelsey.  The day was just amazing and Kelsey was a beautiful bride.  They were the first of my son's age group and friends to marry

Kelsey and Mike

 Scott, Mike and Kieran (my son who was best man)

 My Hubby and Kieran - my handsome men.

As you can see the weather played it's part and was hot and sunny.  I was so proud of my son, he looked so handsome and made a lovely speech.  The reception was held at the local hall just round the corner from our house so it was nice to be able to walk there and back.  

Summer is finally here at last with beautiful weather the last two days.  Long may it continue.

Thanks for sharing photos of your handsome men! It's 15 degrees here with a snow storm expected in the morning...I'm a bit jealous, but I do hope your summer weather continues to be pleasant for you :-)
