Hello there boys and girls!

Today is a very special day as my DOH's son marries his girlfriend and the mother of his gorgeous baby girl!!!  

My lucky DOH is in Australia as you are reading this to celebrate along with them...I unfortunately could not make it as it's a very expensive trip and it was far more important that he was there than I was!  I do feel a bit bad for him though as he is only able to spend a week over there and so the jet lag is going to hit him full force like a freight train when he returns back home to me :(  It has been five years since he saw his son so I know he's going to love every minute of it!

Obviously, an occasion such as this calls for a card...duh!!!  The invite that we received was in the very stylish colours of black and pearlised white, so that was my jumping off point.  This is how it turned out...

...and a little close up so you can see the pearls :)

It doesn't show very well in the photograph, but the white mat is a beautifully shimmery pearlised white card which makes the whole thing look a bit more elegant than a flat white...I think?!

I really hope that everyone is having a wonderful day and that my DOH is proud as punch and not melting in the heat!  It's 45C + where they are at the moment...slightly different from the single, and in some places minus, temperatures that we have here in the UK just now!!  He's going to get a shock when he comes home!  I also hope that he's having a fantastic time meeting his Granddaughter for the first time...she's 18 months old now and I just know she's going to absolutely adore her silly Grandad!  It's a super special trip and I know all concerned will appreciate it even if it is only a fleeting visit ;)

Thanks for stopping by guys ;)

  1. Love this elegant wedding card you made! So sorry that you couldn't go! But you are being a very good sport about it! Maybe some day you can both go and stay for a longer visit!

  2. You did a beautiful job of making their wedding card personalized just for them, Sian. I know they will treasure it always. Your post brought tears to my eyes at the thought of your hubs seeing his son after all those years, meeting his sweet granddaughter, and being there to witness the wedding. The jet lag and heat will be a small price to pay for this special time in all their lives. And I know you are there with him in your heart, so that's the next best thing to being there!! Blessings and hugs, Darnell

  3. Sian, what a wonderfully supportive wife you are to your husband, who is on a most remarkable journey to witness his son marry, and welcome two *new* girls into his life. I can't imagine a more proud dad and grandpa! I can imagine how difficult it was not to join him in this momentous occasion, but you were there in his heart and thoughts, and that counts immeasurably. I'm sure you'll have an most excellent 'welcome home' celebration! Your card: elegant, exquisite, stylish - and so heart-warming that you took your cue from the wedding invitation. Seriously, you are one of THE most thoughtful people I've *met*. I agree with Darnell: this card will be a treasured keepsake! Hope your guy returns home safely and that you have a love-filled, warm reunion!! I'm sure he'll have tales and photos to delight you with! Hugs to you, wonderful Sian!

  4. wow!! That sentiment is so cute, I always love a white on black card super stylish. I'm sure the happy couple will love it!!
