Congratulations!!!! Mr. & Mrs. Gomez

This evening is a very special one.  Our first billet kid is getting married.  So we are very excited for him and his bride.  Congratulations!!!!!!  In their honor, I'm sharing their wedding card that I made for the lovely couple.  So let's take a look.......

Recipe Card:

White cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Black cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
White cardstock - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" 

"Wishing you both a lifetime of Love" was computer generated using Before the Rain font at a 14pt on white cardstock sized 1 1/2" x 4".  For the border, I used 5 borders by Lori Whitlock #21684 cut it out of black cardstock using my silhouette cameo.  I only cut one out and cut it to fit both the top and bottom of the sentiment.

Took my white cardstock (3 7/8" x 5 1/8") and ran it through my cuttlebug.  The folder that I used was a 5" x 7" cuttlebug folder.  I didn't write the name on the folder, so I don't know the name of it.  I then adhered white pearls from Recollection to help give some dimension.

These flowers were cut out of purple cardstock using the cricut cartridge "Flower Shoppe".  On page 12, I cut the basic 1 flower at 4".  Rolled and glued them.  I then added some glossy accents glue to the top of the rose.  For the leaves, you can find them on page 22.  I used the very last one.  I believe I cut three of them out of green cardstock at 3/4" or 1".  Then inked them up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink peeled paint. 

Inside Recipe Card:

Black cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
White cardstock - 3 3/4" x 5"
Purple cardstock - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4", Martha Stewart heart punch was used after the cardstock was cut to size.
White cardstock - 3 1/4" x 4 1/3"
Green Ribbon wrapped around the purple and smaller white cardstock before adhering to the base card.

I plan on putting our personal message to special couple here.  This is why it is currently blank.

Well, I better get ready.  Don't want to be late for this wedding.  As always, thanks for stopping in over the weekend.  Have a wonderful day!!!

Happy Birthday America!!!!!

Wow!!!!  Another birthday......  So glad to be an American.

Now I know everyone is celebrating today.  But should you stop by and visit. Thank you!!!!  Below I'm sharing a fabric wreath I made in celebration of today.  I hope you like it. 


12" Box Wreath Frame (Joann's)
1 yard each (5-6 different colors)
Each yard was then cut to 1/4 then folded in half and cut in strips.  You can either leave them or cut them in half again.  That is what I did.
Star garland ($1.00 store)

Alternate each pattern and tie a knot.  Fill the entire wreath.

These wreaths are great for any occasion.  Just use your imagination.  Again thanks for stopping by.  Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!

Blessings to You on Father's Day!

I understand that Father's Day is still a week away.  Did I say a week away? Wow, I need to get busy.  If your stuck and need an idea, then this one might help. However, I must say this is not your standard A2 card.  I had some scraps laying around and used them to make this card.  So make sure you pay close attention to the measurements, if you should decide to make this one.

Card Recipe:

Kraft cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 3/8"
Brown cardstock - 4" x 5 1/8"
DCWV (Guy Stack) patterned paper - 3 3/4" x 4 7/8"

Cricut Cartridges:

April Showers - Clouds (1" & 3/4") Kraft cardstock
Elegant Edges - Butterfly Oblong (4") page 30; Kraft cardstock
Wildlife - Caribou (4") Brown cardstock 

Green cardstock - 1" x 4"
Cream cardstock - 1/2"
Stamp - Studio 112 from JoAnn's
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Foam tape

Close up of the smaller cloud.  I inked around both clouds with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Tea Dye.  Wove some Hemp through the green buttons (I won the hemp from DL Art during one of her challenges).  Glued them down with glossy accents.

It's Friday and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
