You Are So Loved

Cheers To The Happy Couple


It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and this time around it's all about LOVE. Pretty ideal timing as I needed to make a wedding card for my husband's colleague who's getting married in a couple of weeks :)


There's a whole lot of sparkle to this card in real life---the gold sparkle cardstock and some clear wink of stella on the champagne and bubbles. In my mind sparkle = celebration ;)

Hope you like my card for today!

Thanks

Today I'm playing along with the current Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:


That darling little envelope stamp is from Honey Bee :) I stamped it 5 times, masking some of the envelopes as I went along. I colored the hearts in a rainbow palette to go along with the rainbow notebook paper in the background. The "thanks" sentiment is a favorite from Winnie and Walter. Thought it fit the whole handwritten note theme of this card ;)

Duck Commander

Spending some time in the studio today while my husband, Tony, and our lab, Pepper, are out hunting. Tony's birthday is coming up this week, so this was the perfect opportunity to sit down and make him a card :) Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 372 and Color Throwdown Challenge 527 provided the perfect inspiration!



If you follow my blog (or follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram) you know that Tony and Pepper are avid bird hunters. They hunt every chance they get! So, here's my birthday card for Tony:


I somehow stumbled upon this wood mounted stamp on Amazon...and into the cart it went :)

I hope Tony gets a kick out of it!
