For the Bride....

Hi all! Happy Valentine's Day! I apologize again for my absence. What a week! My kids are still rotating through that traditional beginning of the year virus/crud. I've had it too, and hubby is doing much better, but still not fully recovered from his surgery he had a couple weeks back. Anyway, I did need to make my sister a card for the shower I'm having for her soon! :)

No challenges, I just dry embossed a piece of SU! Gumball Green card stock with a Tim Holtz EF. I die cut that white panel and stamped with Gumball Green, Tempting Turquoise, and Blushing Bride (seemed like an appropriate color choice!) The stamps and dies are all Papertrey Ink.

I wrapped some ribbon lengthwise around the card front. I created a little loopy bow with the same ribbon and topped it off with a sweet pink OA button threaded and tied with some Aqua Divine Twine.

Speaking of wedding stuff, when my sis was staying with me last week, we managed to get the fronts of her wedding invitations done, and then even whipped up 100 quick thank you notes to match. She's having a small wedding, but she is having this big shower and you know that people send gifts even though they can't make it.

For the invitations, we bought premade cards at Archiver's, they were the green color she wanted and a pretty trifold style. She is having the wedding in a rose garden and wanted to use the rose stamp as her motif (SU! Fifth Avenue Floral). We heat embossed them with a sparkly white embossing powder that was (also appropriately named!) the color: "Bridal." The thank you notes were a simple white flat card (no fold) and we rounded the corners and stamped the rose in green and a simple "thank you" sentiment (from TCP Simply Said).

Well that's it for me today! Hopefully next week I'll have a bit more crafty time! :) 

Big hugs, Noelle
