8x8 Commissioned vows renewal

Good morning everyone, I am so sorry that I have not been commenting, I am guilty of taking time out to play with my new car and yes, I am loving it :o) I will endeavor to catch up with your posts in the next few days!

Believe it or not, 7 months after applying for P.I.P. for Stephen, the DWP representatives finally came to see him on Friday. So now we wait yet again to see if he will be allowed to have this extra money to give him independence!

I hope all is well with everyone, hugs.

On to my card for today. If you think it looks familiar, it's because I have used the front of a round card I made previously as I thought the image was perfect for the occasion. Please ignore the coaster on the inside, that is just to cover the private message :o)

For once I didn't make my own card blank, this is from a pack of Papermania 8x8 blanks. I embossed the front with an 8x8 Embossalicious folder then attached the front from another card and added the flower, sentiment  and bling.
The digi image is from Mo Manning, printed onto plain white smooth card then coloured with Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils.
All coloured card is Bazzill Basics.
Daisy cut with Sizzix Bigz dies from plain white card, then the petal tips inked with an ancient Colour Box pad which was just the right colour.
Foliage cut with Memory Box and McGill.
Inside border cut with Spellbinder.
Image and inside panels also cut with Spellbinder.
Sentiment is computer generated the cut with SU punches.
Pins unknown.

So gorgeous Jackie. I love that image and your design is so beautiful.
I am pleased you are enjoying your new car. I hope Stephen gets the money he is entitled too soon, it's crazy that these things take so long for them to sort out.

Gorgeous card Jackie - it will be very loved by the recipients.

That's an awfully long time for Stephen to wait to be interviewed! I do hope that it all goes well and he qualifies for some financial assistance.
