Best Wishes


Loved this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  Was perfect for a wedding card I needed to make for a friend.

My starting point was the beautiful Making Memories paper that is basically all covered up (hate when that happens).  Tried to adjust the sizing but it just didn't look right so kept it and dressed things up with the lacy ovals, silver pearls, bling and some sheer ribbon.

Love neutral cards for weddings - in case you hadn't guessed LOL - and hoping my friend likes it too.

The first week of swimming lessons is almost done and the mid-way report on the kids was a good.  I have passed the sucking wind stage of my lap swimming and can do many more laps of the crawl now - yeah!  The chlorine smell is getting stronger ever day....hubby keep saying he can smell us before he sees us LOL.  We'll all be swimming machines by the end of next week :)

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Elegant Greetings (Stampin' Up)
Paper: Making Memories, Going Grey, Silver
 Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Border Punch (Stampin' Up), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Lacy Oval, Oval and Heart Nesties, , 5/8" Sheer Grey Ribbon, Silver Half Pearls, Bling, Silver Twine, Button, Glue Dot, Dimensionals
