Weddings & Anniversaries

With summer comes weddings! Weddings are a special event no matter what time of the year, but a summer wedding just seems to make the celebration a little unique or maybe a little different. Maybe it is the fact that it is hot and everyone is enjoying the weather, or maybe it is the fact that mostly everyone seems to be so laid back during this time. Some on vacation and others wishing they were! Lol!  Whatever the case, it is a special time and with this comes the opportunity to make some elegant cards for an amazing event. I have some wedding and anniversary cards to make for some friends.  After making an anniversary card for my hubby, I decided I needed to catch up and replenish my stash. This was also made for the contest over at SRM Stickers and for Hero Arts contest. Please see sidebar for these stores and all they have to offer.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Bazzil, Paper Company
Pattern Paper: American Traditional Designs (Elegant Wedding)
Digital Image: Hero Arts Butterfly Digi Kit
Inks: Stampin' Up
Pearls: Prima & Ranger Liquid Pearls
Stickers: Creative Memories (Romance Titles)
Stamps: Autumn Leaves (Stampology)
Ribbon: Dollarama (Organza)

I had so much fun making this card! I love to pretty things up and I am not sure if I did this way to much for the challenge over at SRM Stickers because the challenge is Clean & Simple. Oh well! Here goes nothing! It is simple compared to what I would normally do!  I would have added flowers but was trying to let the title do the talking and not the rest of the card. Why not check out the challenges and join in the fun!

Thank you so much for checking in!  We are off to the doctor with a sick kid! Praying that it isn't pneumonia again like last summer! Hope you and yours are healthy and doing well. Thanks for all your support!

Hugs & Blessings

Thanks Sandy and Dorcas for your concern and thoughts and prayers! Your so sweet! He has an ear infection and infected throat. Yuck! He does have whizzing on his chect and was given perscription for puffers. If it is still there after medication is gone than we have to get an Asthma Test done. Praying that isn't the case. Thanks again ladies. Hugs
