Just Married 2 Sketches 4 You

Hey there! Have you seen the most recent sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You? It's a goodie! Check it out:
And here's my take on it:

I designed this card for one of my husband's grad students who just got married. Since she's in her early 20's I wanted to create something hip and fun!

I absolutely adore this love bug image from Papertrey Ink's "Enjoy the Ride" stamp set! It's so much fun to paper piece, and it comes with a number of different sentiments for the license plate.

So, what do you think? I hope you like it!

Thanks again to all of you who left comments on my Cuddly Critters Blog Hop post! You are all so sweet and really inspire me to keep creating! I wanted to let you know that my friend chose the monkey invitations! Turns out she & her husband frequently refer to Jonathan as their little monkey! So cute! I made a dozen monkey invitations, packaged them up and shipped them off to her this past weekend! Here are some photos of the final product:

My husband and I took a scenic drive to Leadville this past Sunday to check out the FALL splendor!!! I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite photos with you:

Oh my goodness, I love all those cards packaged together! The people attending are going to keep those invites for a LONG time! ;)

The pictures that you posted are so beautiful- it's so picture perfect! I am amazed at the color of the sky; I would have thought it was photoshopped!

How cute are those little monkeys? They make me laugh! I love the fall scenery with the changing of the leaves. Being originally from Arkansas I didn't get to experience that much since we mainly had pine trees. That is one of the things I loved the most when I moved to NY was the different colors nature can provide. Gorgeous!
