Girl Kissing a Butterfly

The last couple of days have caught up with me and I'm pretty tired at the moment - time for bed!
Hope you all had a fab weekend. Thanks to all of you who left well wishes for the wedding, they were much appreciated. Our son's wedding went off really well, the weather was perfect and the ceremony was really good. Our new DIL looked beautiful as did our two cute granddaughters who gave out bubble mixture to the guests. Katie started her vows but got a bit emotional and ended up just nodding as the minister said them. The reception was good, great food and everyone had a good time. I even managed to do a bit of dancing as my back had improved quite a bit. We had our last minute emergencies to deal with. Our youngest daughter had a zip catastrophe the pull part of the zip broke and the whole zip split open and we had no means of closing it so I had to literally stitch her into the dress about an hour before the wedding, so I was last to get dressed and starting to panic that we would be late. I had my hair done just before lunch and told not to go doing anything as if I perspired too much the curls would drop out. So the last hour before the wedding was a bit hectic with 5 females all trying to get dressed and get make up on. The minister (our friend, Darrell) couldn't get in his room because someone was using the mirror to put their make up on, LOL. The men were a lot easier to organise and then we car pooled up to the park luckily only five minutes away. When I get some photos, I will share a couple of them.
Today we got up and had breakfast with the minister and a couple of friends who stayed here overnight. Hubby drove the minister off to the airport about 11.30 a.m. and our friends left then as well to go back to their farm. I had the newlyweds drop in to pick up their vehicle and their dog and to make sure we were coming over in the afternoon for a little while. I made a huge batch of scones to take and we saw some of the photos put through the tv. They will have lots to choose from to make an album up. We came home and both had a short snooze before Adrian had to drive up to the eldest daughter's place to see if he could drain petrol from her car. She accidently put unleaded into it instead of diesel. They had no luck so she won't be able to drive it until they figure out how to get the petrol out. She had it towed from the petrol station.
I didn't manage to post last night so I sat down tonight and made this card to share.

The basecard is SU Certainly Celery and then I made up 3 panels with two different DPs using a burgundy card from stash as a matte. The sentiment is from SU Friendly Phrases and the sentiment on the inside is from Stamp-It called Tall Birthday. I used a layer of the dotted DP on the inside and then a white topnote diecut.
I would like to enter this into the following:

  12. Hi Sandy

    Aaahh Weddings............wonderful but stressful. Sounds like it was a wonderful day though. My brother's wedding is next weekend in Glenelg, hope the weather is good for them. Sadly I can't make it down.

    Gee, I hope your daughter can get the fuel situation sorted with her car, I image it would be quite nasty if any of it got in to the engine, good thinking having it towed from the servo.

    Your card is just fabulous, such a sweet little image.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.
