Wedding Bells Anyone!?

Happy TGIFriday...short week for me but I have managed to get everything done that I needed wahoo.  Today I'm cleaning the basement real good and baseboards...Riley has friends coming over and Alexa is off to a friends house for a sleepover.  Saturday is chore day...lots of things I want to get done to the dismay of my hubby...but the chore list calls and I won't feel good unless a few things get marked off.  And I gotta get some furniture up on Craigs List to get rid of it...we got new family room furniture and I gotta make room for it LOL.  I'm also working on front porch/door redo so lots to do for that too...hope to have it all done by end of month.  My hubby is procrastinator-EXTRAORDINAIRE so I gotta be on him all the time...seriously he will start a project and be content to not finish it for months.  It drives me NUTTY...if I start it I want it finished ASAP so I can start the next one.  I like the sense of completion and fulfillment...obvs he does NOT share my love of those things LOL.  So I'm like a bull...charging ahead...dragging him along with me usually unwillingly hee hee but that's just how it goes in my house ;)

Then on Sunday we will be at an Orioles game in Baltimore during the day and finish up the evening in DC at a Wash Caps hockey game...yeah a full day of sports.  Might sound terrible to most of y'all but sounds like a GREAT day to me!  ONLY thing is I miss the ACM's that night hosted by my Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton..but I'll be taping it so no worries.  But no play-by-play commentary from me on Facebook during the show like I usually do...I know I know...y'all are hoo...hahahahaha!  So make sure to tune in cuz I'll be watching LATE when I get home on Sunday no doubt!


*If you missed our vacation pics & wanna see...they are at my other blog "Bitz of Me" (scroll down to see the slideshow).

*The CMC Classroom will be celebrating its 3rd Birthday Bash at the end of this month (26th - 29th) so get prepared for lots of fun games and challenges and of course some yummy prizes!!  All are welcome to join in the fun!!  Join the thread HERE so you're ready when we kick it off!


Wedding Bells!

Today I'm sharing a wedding card I made using a beautiful Saturated Canary stamp from Little Darlings Stamps.  I'm the lucky guest designer this month for the Little Darlings Challenge and the shop is owned by my lovely and talented friend Angie Hunt.  The challenge is Anything Goes so hop on over and check it out and join in!  This beautiful stamp is called "Rebecca" and is only available in rubber stamp form.  I think she works fabulous for a wedding card don't you?  I kept the colors soft and shabby chic-like...feminine and romantic.

My papers are a mix from Docraft's Papermania "Lincoln Linen" and Pink Paislee's "London Market" were used.  I inked and distressed them all with my Zutter Distress machine (luv that can make a racket but it works soooo good).  I used a few dies on this...the doily mat behind the image is from Marianne Designs and the swirls at the corners is Memory Box "Quinn Flourish", corners are made with a die from La La Land.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the keys are from Tim Holtz and hatpins I made myself.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps and a few pretty pearls finish it off.

She got colored with Copics...the dress is the E44 thru E40 range and hair is E59,E44,E15,E31,E50.  I also added a soft background with Copics E41,E50,W00 and then added some Stickles to the background and to her dress for sparkle.  Diamond Glaze on her eyes and ribbon.

That's all for me....hope you will pop over to the Little Darlings Challenge and join in on the fun!
Have a great weekend!!
