Weekend Cards

Happy Monday my friends,

I went to the most lovely wedding this weekend - my niece, Carrie Jo, tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at Apple Valley Farms. She was beautiful and smiled the biggest smile (seriously - I have only ever seen Julia Roberts smile bigger) the whole evening even though I know she was melting in the 100 degree heat (one of the pitfalls of outdoor weddings). When I look at her, I still see her as a little girl helping me paint the nursery walls at church and jabbering away. It was our first really long talk and I was amazed at how insightful and smart she was - no surprise she is now a hot shot attorney. The wedding was out of town and we stayed the night, but I still got to stamp a bit Saturday morning and last night.



All the cards above were made for the Inspiration Challenge at SCS. The next card was made for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS and I cased THIS card.


Hugz, and I hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. All of these are fabulous. Love the simplicity of the first three and all the dimension on the last one. Love those feathers behind the bouquet of flowers.

  4. I love all 3 of those wonderful CAS cards, but I'm blown away with that gorgeous floral beauty! Who knew flowers, feathers and doilies would go together so well, especially when they're tied up with some pretty sheer ribbon! Well done on all!
