The Mr. & Mrs.


Large, rowdy wedding receptions are pretty popular here in Wisconsin. Lots of music, drinks and tons of friends and family. There's no other feeling like being announced as The Mr. and Mrs. when you walk through the doorway at the local hall for your Grand March. You are two of a kind. Mr. and Mrs. A whole new life begins.





I'm lucky enough to be showcasing another card for Paper Smooches as their August Guest Designer! I played with Daisies and Paisleys again, this time opting for the daisy stamps instead of the paisleys! I added a sentiment from the set, as well as from Word Up and the heart from Vegtastic. The images were colored with Copic and a simple May Arts Burlap String was added to ground the flowers and visually separate the sentiments.

****On another note****



May Arts has teamed up with Basically Bare for an amazing showcase of products and samples this week. My project went up yesterday, and as always, there are prizes up for grabs if you wanted to take a peek!

Today is the last day to enter a project for the two sketches up over at Artful Delight! The prize package is your choice of a free scrapbook or card kit! Check out the details here!

  13. I love this - it's different and so sweet! We got so many wedding cards that were the same (store bought cards are so limiting!) and this one would have just thrilled me to no end! I love your story - and it's true! I still blush and giggle (8-months later) when someone calls me Mrs. Schaitberger!
    {deep sigh}
    Hugs!
