"Just Married" card

I was in a hurry to get to a friends wedding (like normal...if I am not part of the bridal party I will be late) and it was either finish drying the clothes I intended to wear and make a card or change my outfit and leave time to run by the store. I am glad I made the card because it turned out cute--I ended up changing the outfit anyway.

I had some left over Thank You cards from mine and Ken's wedding last year that I purchased at Target.

My friend's favorite color and wedding color was purple so I made a card base from basic card stock purchased in the office section of Wal-Mart. I used the plain inside of the thank you card as the front of the new card and cut out the tux and dress. I added ribbon that I had on hand from Big Lots, a purple brad, some Making Memories flowers and used purple Staz-On ink so the sentiment "Just Married" wouldn't smear.

I made sure the new card was the same size as the original card so I wouldn't have to make an envelope.

Valentines Cards

I am really bad about posting after the fact but oh well. Here we are almost a month later and I am posting my Valentine creations. Enjoy!!

The flower is a digital stamp from "Sew Many Cards" blog. They have some really cute images. I intended to post this in their Valentines Black and Red challenge but didn't make it.

Card inside:

I made this card using the word "Sweetheart" from the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge. The paper is DCWV and Core'dinations. I took these to work and a few of my co-workers took them home to their wives.

Last but not least: I made this coupon book for my husband as his gift and card

Again--DCWV and Core'dinations. The ribbon is from Michaels.
