Phew what a weekend!

We have just had a long weekend and what a busy one of that did we had! Saturday night we had an engagement party for some good friends (my hubby and I are their best man and matron of honor) and did not get home till 2am. It was a great night with everyone dressing up with a bit of country flair. It is so good to see them both so happy with each other lets hope they have many years of happiness ahead of them, they both deserve it.

After a lazy Sunday morning we headed off to another dear friends house to celebrate her eldest daughters 8th birthday. The kids had an absolute ball. That night us and another family headed back to Dee’s to have some champers, takeaway and good laughs. It is so nice to have such good friends that make you feel loved and know just the right thing to say so girls if you are reading this mwah you are the best!

Yesterday we headed down to see my hubby’s grandma’s before heading off on a drive to see the all the autumn leaves at the wineries in the Yarra Valley, unfortunately we were about a week too late and the leaves had already turned and dropped but the drive was nice anyhow. Last night we went to mum and dads to celebrate my sisters’ birthday which was also a great night.

So you can see why today after doing my cleaning and washing I wanted to sit back and have a nice relaxing cuppa!!

The card I am bringing you today I made for the couple whose engagement party we went to on Saturday night. They had a country theme for their party so I wanted to make a card that blended in. The image fits perfectly and I think the papers do too. The card is a lot brighter than what I would normally do for an engagement card but as I said I wanted to keep in the theme.


This card I will be entering into Friday Sketchers and Stamp Something (charmed somethings).



I have used Patterned paper from October afternoon and Cosmo Cricket, cardstock Stampin Up, stamp is by Sarah Kay, colouring is done using water colour papers, not sure where I got the charm from and the buttons I had in my stash.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

I will be back tomorrow with my DT card for this week challenge over at Papertake Weekly. Be sure to pop by and have a peek!

Until next time xoxo
