Congratulations Josh and Patty

This past weekend I attended a beautiful wedding at our church of two sweet friends, Josh and Patty. They've been dating about 4-5 years, and have been engaged almost one year so this was a long awaited day! Patty has 3 kids that I've had the pleasure of teaching, loving, and hanging out with as their children's pastor (and one of them is my daughter's friend) so this was a celebratory day for all 5 of them. The wedding was gorgeous, and very special. Here is the card I made a few weeks ago for them. Lots of sparkles!
The cardstock colors are Pixie Pink, Groovy Guava, So Saffron, and shimmer white. The main image is stamped in Stazon, colored with the aquapainter and the groovy guava ink for the cake, and then the total image is embossed with Irridescent Ice. I added lots of little rhinestones all over the cake, and used some glaze pen on some of the flowers. The "Happy For You" sentiment is from the Fancy Flexible Phrases set (retired) and punched with the 2 oval punches, and then cut with scalloped scissors around the outer layer (Guava). The background card is wheeled with the Baroque Wheel. The flowers are from the Fabulous Flowers set. Some ribbon and some punches, and there it is! I had a lot of fun making this card. I love it when I'm able to spend 2 or 3 days on a card and can come back to it to add to it slowly, instead of rushing to get it out the door :)
Have a fun day!

Cupcake Challenge Card

Just a quick post to show the card I made this weekend for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Card (#41) I found this "Me and My Big Ideas" paper at the big Joanne's in Buena Park and new it would make some FUN birthday cards! The rick rack is from a big stash I actually bought from "Oriental Trading!" Imagine That!

The main image is stamped on Shimmer White with black craft ink (SU) and embossed with detail clear, then colored with stampin up markers. The cardstock is Pixie Pink and Ballet Blue, with purple brads in the corners. There is also crystal accents on the cherries. I think that's about it! Happy Monday. Hope you all have a great week.

My Mom's Birthday

Last week my wonderful mom had a birthday, and as it happened, Stephen was here visiting as well, so of course, what a great opportunity for a family get together. Have I said it lately that I love my family? Taco Salad, birthday presents, kids playing, yummy dessert, and lots of laughter!
Here's my sister Debbie, and the love of her life Rod (who also happens to be her husband.) They are ALWAYS smiling and laughing together! I love that about them! Deb has a unique ability to encourage and speak love and healing into my life.

Sweet little Grace, who is 4 years old now, loves her cousin Emily!

Here are the boys having fun and being silly! They both love their Grandma! (And not just because she spoils them!)
Hope you had a wonderful birthday mom... Many happy and healthy more!
