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!
