I've been meaning to post a photo of this card I made for quite a while now. Finally sat down tonight to do it, and just spent a good 20 minutes trying to remember -- then ultimately resetting -- my password.
Anyway...back to the subject at hand. This is the card I made for my hairdresser and his fiance, who were married this past weekend. I prefer giving handmade cards when I have the time, especially if it's for someone special, and lately I've been doing my own artwork, but I'm a bit shy about who I give those to. It feels very presumptuous.
I did actually go looking for a store-bought card, and I have to say I'm surprised at the lack of selection of wedding cards for same sex couples. Here it is 2012, and all I found was one lame card (which they were sure to get multiples of), so off I went home to make my own. In the end I was glad I did, although I was a bit nervous about what their reaction would be once they saw the picture, and I almost chickened out. But they loved the picture and the sentiment, and will even be putting it in a frame. In fact, they asked if I would consider selling them. Awww...bless their hearts. :o)
I should mention also that I was able to use my new light box (!) for the project. (See previous post. I only held out for about a week. In my defence, I did have a 40%-off coupon. Hee hee!)
Right. Off to bed now. Nighty-night!
