Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #201 Sponsor is Stampfairy


Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
As some of you know last weekend I got a Wasp sting on the bottom of my foot I was worried that it would swell up and I wouldn't be able to wear heels to the wedding we were going to this last weekend.
Here's a photo of William and I on the big day and I did wear  heels, the swelling had all gone down within the week. 

.This photo was taken about 6pm at night before the reception and after a few glasses of Champagne.
We picked out the orange in my silk jacket for hubby's tie and satin handkerchief   He could have worn purple, green, blue or pink but I think the orange looked smart.

Here's the Black Suede and Gold shoes the heels are also Gold and the clutch is Black with Gold trim

 This is the top of my Fascinator with Black spotted net.
I so wanted to wear a Fascinator and there is always a time and place for them to be worn and it was so nice to be able to get dressed up.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards there were so many wonderful cards and over 40 entries from our loyal followers and some new ones which is lovely to see.

This week we have another wonderful sketch from our very own

I am so glad that your foot was beeter enough from the bee sting that it didn't give you any problems. It is always a speacial treat to see your wedding cards. I always love the extra details you add to them and the beautiful golds and silver papers. Your paper peicing really makes this card so striking. I love it. Fabulous post on SSW this week too!

Kathie, WOW wonderful picture of you and your hubbie both of you looked top notch. I'm glad you were able to pull off the heels - it would have taken me a few more glasses of champagne. Your card is lovely - I just love how you put the swirls in the dress. The gold corners make it look so elegant. And, I just love pearls. Another wonderful creation and you pulled off a fancy weekend - take care and many hugs.
