"Happy is the bride the sun shines on..."

My Mum told me on the day I was married, 23 years ago, "Happy is the bride the sun shines on, sad is the bride the rain rains on". It happened to be sunny on my wedding day, which considering I was married in November, was pretty lucky! As you all know I have been working on wedding thank you cards for the past couple of days. The bride's wedding colors are lilac and white, and after several samples and variations, she chose this design to be her wedding thank you card. Now I only have 149 more to make! No worries, I am honored to do it! Now everyone pray for sunshine!!


  1. Oh wow! I don't envy you having to make 150 thank you cards! It rained on my wedding day on July 15, 1972. My poor Dad got wet as he was holding a very large umbrella over each of us girls so we wouldn't get wet! The photographer managed to erase all wet spots on his suit. I will be making 25 Baby Shower invitations for my son's girlfriend. Her sister is expecting in Sep. right around the time my son was born. We are all anxiously waiting to hear if it will be a girl or boy and then I can start making the invites. I might make thank you cards for the Mom to be as well.

  2. Beautiful card -- looks like lots of work!
