Wedding Wishes

Hello everyone!  Gosh, I'm late today!  It's been a busy day! I hope your day has been wonderful!!! Do you ever find yourself saying...if I can just get through this day, this project, this week...life will slow down and life will be simpler?  I find myself saying that all the time...but it never happens.  I often wonder if it will when the last of my kids graduate and go on to college or trade schools.  I wonder if I will just have a new kind of busy?  I think that just might be the case because I like to be busy but I also enjoy a little down time!  Last night I had some of that down time and I watched The Last Ride with my daughter.  What a great love story...not quite as good as The Notebook (my FAVORITE), but it was really good.  We giggled and we cried...and I did have to fast forward through a couple of scenes, but it was a nice relaxing and enjoyable evening! I hope you find a little bit of that down time too...time to refresh your body, mind and spirit! I really think it's a necessity!

Today I took some cards that I made into a local store...Olson's Stoneware.  It's a super fun store with all kinds of groovy things...I love to go in and just look!  Well...they are gonna sell my cards in there and I am SUPER excited!  I took an assortment of cards in, birthday, thinking of you, Father's Day, graduation, wedding...17 in all.  I'd like to share one of the cards I created this morning to take in!

This lovely wedding card has a Whisper White card base.  The first layer is Smoky Slate and measures 4 1/8" X 5 3/8".  The next layer is Thick Whisper White cardstock measuring 4" X 5 1/4" and is embossed with the floral Petal Pair embossing folders.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White ribbon (tying a bow) around both of the layered pieces and adhered it to my cardbase with dimensionals. Next I cut a circle in Whisper White using my Stitched Shapes framelits and stamped the sentiment with the Floral Phrases stamp set.  Last I added three sets of flowers from the Bouquet Bunch framelits and added some Pearl Basic Jewels!  Didn't it turn out pretty?

I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it says "May your love grow stronger, deeper, and more beautiful with every passing year"...also from the Floral Phrases stamp set! 

Well..that's it for today.  I'll be sharing other creations with you as the days continue on so be sure to stop back by!  THANKS BUNCHES for taking a peek today!

~Today's Thought~
Meditating today on slowing down enough to enjoy the good things. Just tapping the brakes a bit. Giving a smile to the security guard. Saying hello to the mailman. Spending 5 seconds to pet the neighbor's dog. Noticing all the new buds on the rose bush. It's a wonderful world, if you slow down long enough to notice. It's what I am thinking about today.♥ ~~ Houston Foodlovers Book Club
