One of my sister's coworkers asked me to put together a couple simple examples of wedding invites that she could make. She doesn't have a lot of time to get them done so she wanted them sweet and simple. Her colors are pink, black and white. Here are a few of the simple ideas I came up with this morning. For the 1st and 3rd examples I just printed and stamped on shimmery white cardstock. The 2nd example I printed the invite on vellum and layered it over cardstock that I had stamped one. Her flowers are tulips but I tried one using Roses in Winter also. Let me know what you think. Nothing too fancy but I think they are still quite elegant.

We have been eating WAY WAY too much ice cream at our house lately. Last week I even bought a big gallon instead of the half gallons. We ate the entire gallon in less than a week. When Tom threw the empty gallon bucket in the recycling bin a little light bulb came on in my head. I took it out of the recycle bin and put it in the dish washer. A few hours later I covered it in paper, ribbon, primas and left it sit in my stamp room for a couple days. Today I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Archivers to buy the Cropodile Big Bite. I couldn't drive home fast enough. As soon as I got here I punched a bunch of holes in the bucket and filled it with ribbon. What do you think? (I know some of the punches are crooked but besides that, what do you think?)
I just can't believe how fast the weekend went. I didn't really getting any real stamping done, although I did start working on a project that I will hopefully be able to finish and show you later this week. I did take some time for myself and went to see a movie yesterday afternoon while Tom watched the kids. I saw "Juno". It was a really good movie-VERY funny in a lot of parts but kinda depressing for me too. I had very puffy eyes when I left the theatre...good thing I had sun glasses with me. This was the first real movie I have gone to see in a long long time; I ususally see movies with animated characters. I'm thinking I may need to do this "ME" time thing more often. Next time I think I will see something a little more chick-flicky (cheesy, unrealistic, with a Happily Ever After ending)...like Fool's Gold. I will try and post again sometime later today if I get a chance to create anything. Have a great Monday everyone!

But you all knew that anyway. You were all probably thinking it would be much higher than that, right.
Here are my results:
Here are my results:
You Are 32% Weirdo
You're a little weird, but you'd be even weirder if you didn't have a few quirks.
You are just strange enough to know it, but nobody else seems to notice your weirdness.
That's because, deep down, everyone is a little freaky!
