Wedding Card

Hi Everyone !
I sure hope your staying dry and warm. You
 can sure tell it's fall time here in Northeastern Ohio!
Today I want to share with you a very
unusual wedding card I made for a dear friends
daughter who is getting married this week.
They are having a very unique wedding. The theme
is Vintage with Vintage Airplanes !!!
Yep very unique and just up my alley!
I have been told the table decorations are going to be
FauxVintage books, real antique items and old family photos of
Grandparents and Great Grandparents. So in keeping with that
theme, I made this "book type" wedding card using photos
 of the happy couple on the day he proposed and
when she accepted. Hope you like it and as usual it's much
better looking in real life. I still haven't mastered
taking great photo's at all LOL!
Can you see the airplane label from the JustRite stamp set
has a hint of stickles around the frame to match
 the inside paper. I used Distress
 markers and ink to color the image with.
In this shot I folded back the ribbon I used as a book marker.
Hard to see but I frayed the end of the ribbon with the TH
scratcher tool to make it look old
Well there you have it my vintage "book" wedding card.
It sure was fun to make and the Happy Couple loved it !!!
 Made my day to hear they were pleased with it.
AND to top it off I had showed it to my group of church
ladies and one lady asked me to make another one only this one is to be
 a western theme but using the same inside papers hummmm time
 to put my thinking cap on!! LOL
Well again I hope I have inspired you to think
 outside the box, get inky and have fun.
God bless you all!

Flip Flop

Hello Everyone!
Hope your all having a wonderful day today.
I want to share with you a fabulous little project I did
using the new template I got  in Zoar, Ohio.
 It is the cutest template and so easy to make and the ideas are endless.
June Knaack the owner of store
 designed this and it's adorable you have to go to her site
and see all the ideas she has for it !! But before you do
 here is the project I made.

I made this card for my neighbor's little girl Lilly it was for
 her third birthday. She has a pair of flip flops and loves them
so I thought it would be a cute card for her . Her mother tells me
she is still carrying it around and playing with it
 all the time ahhhhh!!!

Here is another one I did as a little ballet slipper shoe

Well I hope this inspires you to get busy making some fun projects
 and to go to The Stamp Pad and check out all the GREAT
 stuff she has there to sell AND she teaches you how to use
 lots of great things! Tell her I sent ya !!!

Wedding Card

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I pray your having a wonderful relaxing day!
I am under the weather again but in time this too shall pass.
 I thought I would take a minute today and share
 a wedding card I made a while back for our
 neighbors, they are such a sweet young couple.
Her attedants wore charcoal gray dresses
and carried red and pink flowers all of which
I knew ahead of time so I tried to use that in my card.

The wedding was so beautiful !
 I pray they have a very long and happy marriage.
I have been married for forty years to my wonderful husband.
Some have asked how did you make it forty years
 my answer is, to keep God first,
 have a forgiving heart and a good sense of humor.
It's a "daily" decision you make to love someone and its hard work.
But its so worth it!
Well I hope I have inspired you to get inky.
Hugs and Blessings to you all!
