So many crafts, so little time.

I've been working lots of long hours the past 6 weeks or so, and when I've been home I've been too tired to craft. I"ve bought a bunch of new stamps recently and several paper stacks and am itching to use some of them! I've been looking at some of the challenges that have been posted and thinking about how some of my new stamps would be perfect, but I just haven't had the time to put anything together. I think I'm going to have to forget about sleeping for a few nights, so I can get some projects completed. lol

Wedding photo

It's been a month and I am finally getting around to post a photo of my daughter and son-in-law at the wedding! I have been way too busy at work this past month and every thing else has just been put on hold. But no more excuses and here is the beautiful bride and handsome groom! A lovely couple if ever there was one!


Notecards for Kristen (and Kyle)

Kristen (my oldest daughter) got married on April 1st. I wanted to make some note cards for her and decided to use the couples initials. I looked over all my fonts for the Cricut and found one that I thought was perfect for these note cards. I mounted the welded initials on a double marquee cut. I used background papers from a stack by Me and My Big Ideas, all in black and white. I thought these could be used for Thank You cards, announcements, or just about anything they might want to use them for. Kristen loves the contrast of black and white and I thought these papers would appeal to her. I picked a variety of papers because I didn't want all of them to look feminine, since they are also for Kyle. The black and white card stock is from AC Moore-just there bulk packaged card stock. The marquee cuts are from Storybook and the font is from Songbird. I used the Gypsy to weld the initials and also to cut everything out. I popped the double marquee with foam tape for dimension.
I am entering the following challenges with these note cards:
1. Papertake Weekly Challenge- Anything Goes
2. A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge- White with one color
