A bitter sweet card today! 
What times we live in. Our Daughter was married yesterday. Because we are in Tier 3 and they are Tier 2 in Ipswich. I couldn't go. Sad that her Dad isn't here. So YES! I was dressed up and I did Celebrate and have a slight drink or two and was able to watch it on Zoom.

 This is a Stamping Bella stamp along with the sentiment (omitted friends from the stamp)

It's one of two stamps I bought a few weeks ago from Dies to Die For.  Coloured with Copics. Broken China Distress sky.
