Wedding Day!

Good Wednesday morning! My post will be quick today as I am going to pick up my kitty from the hospital. He had his surgery and is doing well--just has to recover! Thanks for all your sweet comments and well wishes, I soooo appreciate it (and yes the animal hospital is footing the bill--especially after my hubby had "words" w/ them--in fact they'll be footing his bills for the rest of his life!)!! So I have had 2 nites of no sleep and a sinus infection to boot---I'm just over exhausted :(

BLOG CANDY ALERT--If you haven't already entered for my blog candy you have until Thursday evening to do so. You can enter at the end of this post from yesterday.

If you missed it, Verve Stamps had a rockin' release party last night for all their new stamps and I was a Guest Diva this month (thankyou to Julee and Shannan)! I'm sharing two of my favorite projects from their new releases today. Make sure and get over to Verve and check out all their new sets--lovee them!

The first project uses Verve's new set called "Black Tie Birdies"--when I first saw it I knew it would make a beautiful wedding day card. The dp is new from Black Market called "Ebony & Alabaster" and the cs is all SU. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the white cs and then I stickled the birdies with black Stickles. Aren't these birdies the cutest--there are so many occassions you could dress these cuties up for.

I also wanted to make some bride-to-be earrings and jewelry box with this set. I thought it would be something fun for the soon to be bride to wear at her wedding shower or bachelorette party. I stamped the birdies on shrinky dink sheets with staz-on ink and heated them w/ my heat gun. I added some stickles to their bows and hooked them onto earring hooks from Michaels and added some beads. The tin for the jewelry box is from PTI and I just used the same dp from the card above to cover the top. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder and the silver frame is from SU's hodgepodge hardware. Just a fun, easy gift to give!

Also, CC Designs came out with all their new "spooktacular" stamps last nite too, so check them out. They are really cute! And yes, I ordered them cuz' I cannot stop myself--I need a stamp addict help group me thinks :)

Have a great day!
PS--I'm having a great time reading everyone's comments on their favorite movies! Quite a few of my favorite movies have been named too. I will list my faves for ya on Friday--I can't single it down to one, so I'll do my top 10 :) I'm a big movie buff!

I dont want to leave another comment there because it could throw off your count total and i wouldnt want to enter myself twice (well, i would want to, but thats not fair and i wouldnt want to be unfair). My fav movie of all time is kinda of between 2. I'm having a hard time deciding! I guess i would put ROman Holiday first (old, black and white movie). I LOVE it. But my really realy close 2nd is Say Anything. :)
