Here are a few photos from the wedding. We go and pick up our professional photos tomorrow, I cant wait to see them. That is my son Brandon(the blonde kid) and we had our own special dance. The day was perfect! Well, I am trying to work on my Thank you cards, of which I should have started like a year ago(LOL) but thats ok, I will have fun doing them. I will share more later!! Hugs!

This challenge was alot of fun and hopefully you can join in on the next challenge that they have.
Voting closes on Friday June 11th. So go on over and don't forget to vote for #7!

Hello all, Well, the count down is on, I have just under 4 weeks until my Wedding! Oh, I am so excited and so nervous and a little stressed out all in one. Time has just flown by and that wonderful,exciting and beautiful day will be here. So, I have been a little absent in the blogging area but I will definetly make up for it. After the Wedding,(which is June 26th.) I am going to have a special surprise so make sure you come back cause I want to make up my absence to you all!! So, with that being said, Here is a challenge that I just completed this evening.
This one is from InkLinkz.
The great thing about this challenge is the creations will be voted on so, if you get a chance, go on over and vote for me!! I would really appreciate it and if you also play along, Let me know and I will go on over and vote to help you out! All of the info is below.
The theme was to create a boy birthday card with a color scheme as well. The colors I used are More mustard, Tempting turquoise and Buckaroo blue. Gable green, or something close to Gable green was also in the color scheme but I realized after I had made the card that I forgot that color. Oopsies! I made this card for my nephew whose birthday isnt until late July but I figured I would have it on hand and actually be on time for his birthday. The stamped image I used is from "I Break for stamps" This is a great stamp set for boys. It has a couple of the shadow images in skate boarding and a bunch of skate board sayings like "Olie" "Halfpipe" "180" and so on. Really teen age boy appropriate!
So, I hope you enjoy my creation and hopefully I can get a some more challenges in before the big day!

2 Challenges in 1

This creation was made from the inspiration of "The Sweet stop" sketch challenge Blog and also The Color throw down challenge blog. The image I used is by Kraftin Kimmie from Susana's custom art and card design and her name is Francesca. Isn't she just so darn cute? All the card stock that I used is from Stampin Up! I colored Francesca in with my Copics. I am still trying to get the hang of those Copics but practice makes perfect! If you can see it a little bit, I colored in the cupcakes with my Gelly pens. Those are the coolest pens. I love shiny and sparkley and these pens do just that! I hope you enjoy what I have created and now I am off for a weekend of camping and hopefully some beautiful weather here in Northern California. Have a splendid weekend and I will see you all real soon!
