Bride and Groom

My hubby's long time friend lost his wife a few years ago. But he recently got remarried to a lovely lady who works in the same field that he does and we couldn't be more happy for him. We were not able to attend their out of state wedding but they did stop by and spent the night and we had a great visit. This is the card I made for them.


I love when the paper does most of the work for you. I just cut out the die cut heart, the letters Love and the corner die, added the sentiment and I was done.

Webster pages -- Petite papers
Spellbinders -- Lacey hearts and Font one upper and lower case dies
David Tuttera -- Celebrate sentiment

I am kitty sitting my grand kitty for a few days, my daughter and son in law had to go speak at a conference.  It is so nice to have a furbaby in the house again, even though she is a stinker and is getting into a few things and woke me up at 3:30 am.  The sun is shinning and the birds are singing so pretty, what could be better this morning :)

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by and for letting me know you did,

Connie

Having a fur baby around always makes life better (except for the early hour awakening), especially after the recent loss of your loved one. Your card is lovely and will be so appreciated.

What a wonderful heart design Connie. I am sure your friend will love it.

PS I finally purchased a squirrel buster bird feeder from Amazon to keep the squirrels and raccoons off the feeder. Works great.

Hugs Diane

I will have to look into the Webster papers, Connie. I've not heard of them before. Beautiful!

The paper is pretty and was a big help, but you added some beautiful elements to make the card special for a very special occasion. You're a good kitty grandma, too!

Ah that's pretty, Connie! People keep their Wedding cards forever, yours certainly merits keeping! So nice he found a new partner.
You definitely sound as though Spring has come a-visiting!
Our Spring is in two minds so far. I'm being patient.

Very pretty card. You used the patterned paper so well. It is not always easy for me to use these types of paper. I really like the die cut and I bet the bride and groom loved it!

That's a lovely card Connie, and how nice that they stopped by to spend time with you too.

Enjoy your kitty sitting!

All the best Jan
