For the bride and groom:

My cousin is getting married soon.  She'll make a beautiful bride!!  I spent several hours on Friday producing this card (sort of a last minute adventure)!! The PP is MME Union Square.  The couple are diecuts from TreasureBoxDesigns.  It is quickly becoming a favorite site of mine!!  I embossed the bride's dress, inked it in perfect pearls and used coordinations gemstone cs for the dress' ruffles.  I used a white pearl pen to give the groom's black tux more definition.  The faces are from PeachyKeenStamps.  "Wishing you Happiness" is a stamp from kimberlycraftspot.

Dearest Ashley:  I wish you all the joys that marriage can bring!

Good to be scrappin' again!

Hey there!!

I'm back - from a crazy few months of not getting to make handmade "anything".  We sold our former home, lived in an R.V. for 2 months (hence my disappearance) while we waited to get into our new home.

It was NOT an adventure.  It was miserable and that's ALL I'm going to say about it.

So now for the scrappy sharing . . . I've made four thank you cards this past weekend.  Three are nearly identical but I love them just the same.  They were made for three different women whom I owe some big THANKS YOU'S.  These cards were inspired from one of my pins on Pinterest.  All the large flowers were handmade by me.  "Merci" is from the Cricut Cartridge Sentimentals. The fun border shape is from Spellbinders Parisian Accents.

PP is from MME Madison Avenue.

This flower is handmade from retro punches, both large and small sizes.
