wedding belles

One of my greatest university friends has just announced her engagement and is getting married in September. Some how I managed to find some time to sit down this weekend and make a congratulations card. I had envisaged using an old photo of a married couple and discovered Stroud Vintage whilst searching in Stroud on Saturday morning, a treasure trove of vintage goodies. However I was unsuccessful so, while the little girl watched Sleeping Beauty, I spent the afternoon on the sofa scrolling through old magazines in the hope of finding what I wanted. I was saved by a Cath Kidston catalogue.

I was quite pleased with the end result - all I have to do now is get it in the post.


  1. great card! Glad you have discovered Stroud Vintage, I do their fairs in Stroud.. the next one is in a few weeks time! We are looking forward to it, there is always a great atmosphere & lovely people.
