My prince charming...

There have been so many posts on the royal wedding, how could I not post on it.  What a day steeped in tradition and old fashioned love.  It did make me think of my own wedding day, I truly felt like a princess.  Finding love the second time around has been truly special, and I believe God sent me my "prince charming". 

To walk into the room where we were married and see my husband's beaming smile was overwhelming.

Beautiful memories on a beautiful fall day!

Me and my beautiful three children, (left to right) Cassondra, me, Megan and Adam
My son Adam actually walked me down the isle.

Just For You

I was really in the mood to play with my stamps and paper after the "festivities" of the day today.  I really wanted to make a general card that could be used for almost any occasion (graduation, get well, birthday, etc.), I never seem to have enough of these kinds of cards.  I love the rich colors of this BoBunny paper, the triangle is from DCVW Mariposa.

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter and may God in his infinite love continue to bless you.

Supplies I used:  BoBunny - Gabrielle, DCVW - Mariposa, brass finding, brads (Making Memories)

Relax, and eat a cupcake....

As I mentioned, I am obsessed with the digital images from "Made By Janet"; they're just fun!  My daughter Cassondra made some cupakes last night, so I thought, hmmmm, perfect opportunity to do something with one of the images I bought.  I made the ribbon rose myself (another passion of mine). Here it is!

Easter Re-do/Before & After

Today on one of my trips to Michael's to get cardstock, I came across these two little items on sale on the "Easter" shelf.  I couldn't bypass them.  I felt an "arts and crafts" day coming over me.  So here is my re-do.  I think they look cute. 

Vintage Birthday Card for my Sis.

I am sooo in love with the digital images I have found by way of Melissa Phillips' blog "Lilybean Paperie".  I have so many things I want to create with them, you can find her link in "my favorite links" button to the right of my blog.  I had to make a card first of course and this one is for my older sister Cindy.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Supplies used:  140lb watercolor paper (digital image); digital image-Made By Janet; white crinkled seam binding; Pearls/Bling-Recollections; Frame-Melissa Frances; Rub on-Pink Paislee, trim.

Happy Easter card

I just had to take out one of my "old" stamps and play with my prismacolor pencils this morning.  I colored in the image with colored pencils and used mineral spirits to blend.  Used some flowersoft on the bunies for dimension.   Not your "traditional" image for Easter, but I think it worked.  Have a great day all.
