Another day, another card

I made a quick wedding card tonight for my fiance's cousin who is getting married on Saturday. I used PTI's shimmer white paper with some black accent pieces and a little bling. (I know it looks pretty silver in the photo, but I don't have very good light right now.)

I think the swirl pattern from the Cuttlebug embossing folder coordinates very well with the wrapping paper I used.

I'm glad I had a little more time in my craft room tonight, even if it was quick. I had a very busy, but productive night after work. I got a tan, got my nails done, got 7 inches cut off of my hair, wrapped two wedding gifts, and made a card. Now I'm going to get ready to hit the hay--We've got a long weekend ahead of us.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!

I'm still alive--and I made a card!

I finally made a card this past week for my cousin who graduated from high school. I remember my HS graduation like it was yesterday, but it was actually 17 years ago. Oh to be 17 again.

Anyway, on to the card. :-)

I used almost all Papertrey Ink products with the exception of a few misc. star stamps I've acquired over the years. I used kraft, vintage cream, ripe avocado, and spring rain cardstocks. The sentiment and the large and small polka dot stars are from PTI's second anniversary set--Everyday Classics.

I'm surprised I could remember where anything was in my craft room. It seems like ages since I've been in there. I need to get started soon on some thank you cards so that I have them ready when the showers/wedding come around.

Speaking of the wedding, the planning has been going well. I won a drawing at a bridal shop so I'm getting my hair done for free. (Let me tell you, free is sounding very good right about now.) I also found an online vendor who is going to custom make my veil for an unbelievable price, especially considering all of the beadwork she is doing by hand( I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Next major step is to decide on a china pattern we BOTH like so we can register. I've set up an online registry with Pampered Chef, but that is as far as we've gotten.

Thanks for checking in with me today. I'm glad I finally had something to share. Take care!

I know I've been MIA lately, but I haven't had time to do much of anything. It seems like time gets away so quickly.

The wedding planning is going pretty well. We have our limo and our photographer lined up now and the bridesmaids are starting to order their dresses. It feels nice to at least be accomplishing a few things off of our seemingly endless list.

Thanks for checking in and for the sweet comments you've left. I really appreciate the kind words.

Have a great weekend!
