Proof Reading!

I really must learn the art of proof reading. I read through yesterday's post twice before I published it, and it still has a mistake in it! Tony shouted down the stairs to me this morning about it.

Tony- "Rache you need to read through your blog."

Me- "Why, what's wrong with it?"

Tony- "You've missed a word out or something."

Me- "oh poo (or something similar), I read through that twice last night!"

So from now on, I think I will ask my extra pair of eyes to double check what I've written, before it's published. ;)

And now for some family news! My sister sprung it upon us last weekend, that she is getting married on the 19th March THIS YEAR!!! I'm so excited for her! They've been talking about getting married for quite some time and they thought they might as well just get on and book it. It's just going to be a small wedding party. She asked if I would make the invitations for her, I said of course I would. Deborah will be wearing an ivory wedding dress with a creamy gold sash and Jimi will be wearing a brown suit. So I came up with this for the invites.

The wording has been stamped and embossed. I used a Versamark Ink pad and Comic Shimmer Embossing Powder. I haven't done that much embossing before and I was really pleased with the result.


  1. The invitations look wonderful! My mum handmade our wedding invitations a few years ago and it was lovely to have something so individual and special to look back at. We got so many nice comments about them as well, so people definitely appreciated them! Beware of more requests for cards, wedding invites etc etc in the future!


  2. That's a lovely handmade invitation and I'm sure your sister will be delighted with them Lucey x

  3. They are lovely!
    Congratulations to the happy couple!
    Oh and don't worry about the typeos I think they reveal a lot about our charachters!

  4. Thank you for entering my giveaway!

    If it helps I add my blog to my reader so when it’s published I see what others see and it quickly points out any mistakes I’ve made!
