Wedding Invites

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.

Sick again : (

Sorry I haven't posted anything new in a few days. I am sick again. This time just a nasty cold but nasty enough to keep me pretty much from doing anything. Hopefully there will be something new to post soon. Hope you all have a terrific Friday!

Got Ice Cream?

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?)

Monday already?

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) 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!

I am 32% weirdo

But you all knew that anyway. You were all probably thinking it would be much higher than that, right.
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!
