We have 2 friends getting married in June, so this one will be sent to one of the sweet couples.
(I now see that I missed adding some bling to one of the flowers- I take care of that before I mail it. LOL)
When Making wedding cards do you:
Use the colors from the wedding
-Make it elegant
-Keep it fun and whimsical
-Use whatever you already have on hand
-try to create something to match the personalities of the couple
-Make it, are you kidding, I buy my Wedding cards?

The stamp is Hello Baby from TAC. The sentiment is from Trendy Greetings. The cute little giraffe is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. I added LOTS of glitter- not only to the card, but to my counter in the studio, the floor, me........ well, you get the idea. *chuckle* I added a little bling to the corners to finish this one off. So what do you think? (Hee hee, I stole that line from Barb.)

Designer Paper- LillyAnna SWIC
This was a fun challenge for me. I did discover that I may be hooked on Pop dots- that may be the next addition to our "kit". LOL I enjoyed getting back to the basics. (Oh, and this was a good way to welcome back my MOJO!!! I sometimes want to use everything, and it just gets so overwhelming.)
Leave me a link so I can see your limited supply layout.

A paper trimmer
No extras!! I want to show those new to scrapping that you do not have to spend lots of money to be creative. (This is also a good reminder for anyone on a scrapping diet that we don't need tons of stuff. LOL)
So, I want to see lots of creativity!! You may use any size to create a double or single page layout.
Leave me a comment and a link to your layout. I will give you until next Monday to post your links.
ETA- Sorry Barb, no stamps this week. What I would like to do is each week add an item or two to our list. Think of it as a little trip, we will make some stops along the way to add all the fun stuff. LOL

After the park we stopped by Sonic for some ice cream. Look at this cute little sundae- it is the PERFECT size for the little ones. Hunter picked Reeses and Haileybug went with M&Ms.
(My kids love the cherries, see Sister has just the stem in her hand. LOL)
Lesson learned- I don't want to be so busy preserving memories that I am not making new memories!! They are only little for such a short time, and I want to enjoy every moment!! Besides, my latest batch of pictures were delivered yesterday. I now have 300 more pictures to scrap- when I get a round to it. LOL
I am blessed beyond measure!!!

I know you can't tell from the picture, but this thing is HUGE!! It is 6.25" High- probably 10ish inches wide. I chose an easy one to start with, Hunter has already requested Mac. LOL
Hailey was very patient while I cut McQueen, but now she is excited to make The Little Mermaid. I guess that will be moved to the top of the list. LOL
Tonight is work night, I have a bunch of cards I need to get done. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some cards to share.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets from The Angel Company's Serendipity Magalogue. (Everything is Blooming) The girls are adorable and the long-legged birdies are too cute!! I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS, then sponged the background-so fun. I love to color!! LOL The cardstock is from the Blue greens Mono pack don't you love how the ribbon from Reece coordinates with that cardstock?
Thanks for stopping by!!

Can you believe I stamped a card? Yep I did. I finally had some very productive work time on Tuesday. LOL
I used the Cricut to cut the image layer and the orange mat, it reminds me of several label die cuts that are out now. I used the Linear Sentiments stamp set from The Angel Company with the Palette Orangerie and Boudoir Blush inks, I am surprised that they look so well together. I think I ended up with a nice festive card- perfect for a late winter birthday. :-)
