Dreams Do Come True!

Hey gang! Wedding season must be in full force, because I got asked by three people yesterday (Saturday) if I had any. So, um I had to lie and say "Of course I do-when do you need them?" For next week-end (2), and  the week after. I definitely got cracking and that's what I made all day today-Yup, 4 wedding cards. I'll be sharing the rest the following Saturdays. This one's my favorite, because my favorite two characters, Tilda and Edwin are on it!!  The papers are from Bo Bunny's line "Vicki B". Flowers are all from WOC. I'm entering the following challenges: Magnolia Down Under (Sketch), Magnolia-licious Highlites (Wedding), Just Magnolia (Friends)-Okay, you might think what a stretch- that's a "friends" challenge-not a wedding challenge-but don't you usually marry your best friend??;Mark's Finest Papers  #57(Ivory and Lace), Simply Stampin' Challenge (Floral Frenzy),Crafty Sentiments (Special Occasions), Pals Paper Arts (Brads) and Sassy Studio Designs (Pearls, Lace and Elegance).

Use More Than One Fold!

Happy Friday gang! It's time for another challenge over at Fairy Fun Fridays. The theme this time around is to incorporate more than one fold. I have to say, I feel out of my element when it comes to extra folds, easels, etc..., but I like the way this turned out. I punched the edges with Martha Stewart's doily lace punch and I'm pleased with the effect. I used this super cute Gillian image is available at Prairie Fairie's site and she is available already colored. I printed the color version, as I knew I was running behind-but I enhanced  a lot of areas with my Copics. Should have just colored it!LOL. My papers are K& Company and the polka dot green paper is Imaginisce, I believe. I'm entering the following challenges: Southern Girls (Lace and pearls), Crafty Creations (Flowers,DP,ribbon), Divas By Design (One for the girls), A Spoon Full of Sugar (Anything Goes) and Anita Be Stampin' (Pearls and Lace) Have a great long week-end to all my fellow Canadian bloggers!

Wall Hanging for Kennedy!

Hey gang! Sheesh-where has the week gone? I haven't had a chance to make a thing this week!
