Card Recognition

Congrats, thanks and wedding photos


This week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge is a one layer card.  


My friend Jen has a guest challenge up at Club CK, so I had to play along to show my blogging pal support.  Plus, since I have left over May Arts ribbon from the wedding, I figured that'd be a good way to use some of it up.  I really wanted to take a photo of the pine cones hanging off the chairs at the ceremony with this May Arts ribbon, but my bridesmaid duties prevented me from getting the photo opp, so sorry ladies-- it looked great.  And I also used the new challenge over at Do More With Less, "Rock and Roll", fun to try to spruce up the trees with several different ink colors.  I then spritzed the whole sheet in perfect pearls because the wedding had a total blizzard, so I thought my sister would like the shimmery effect.  (She liked this card, but really wants a fat stack of one layer cards that wont require extra postage... but that's not what I was inspired to do this morning).

But since a number of you have been sending your morale support for my crafty agendas for the wedding, here are a few fun photos.  Can you figure out which feet are mine in the snowy boot photo?



And because the fabulous Jen made us beautiful flowers for the wedding I had to share a couple of photos of them in action.


And one last crafty project for the day.  Mr. Ben was so excited that Emily included a little goodie for him from my Do More With Less challenge win, that he wanted to play along with Michelle's Neon challenge at Do More With Less.
