A Quick Post!

Hi Blog Friends!
Well, I have been busy here & didn't realize just how time was flying! LOL
I wanted to jump in more on Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge,
 & TODAY is day 29!
 I've had my creation(s)  done for awhile,  it's a wedding ensemble,
but just haven't had the time to post!
(Even as I type, I am to be somewhere else.... )

I am also entering this in
SSS Wednesday Challenge---
Simon Says: Anything Goes.
So, here it is:
"Going to the Chapel."
I used PTI- Love & Marriage, & heat embossed the image.
The inside:
 I used SU- Once Upon a Time, for the sentiment.
The floral image is SU- Eastern Influences.
Next, the gift tag- again I used SU- Eastern Influences.
Inside the gift tag.
I used SU- Winter Post for the "To: & From:"
Next, I made a Receipt Card:
Just a little something to tuck in with the gift,  in case there might be some kind of a mix up in who gave what... & also, where you can put your gift receipt, in-case they want to return your gift.
You never know, others might have thought to get the same thing.
Now the ensemble all together:
I used vellum for my envelope, to let the beauty of the card show through.
The only card I didn't put in an envelope was the gift tag.
HOPE you like
& HOPE you find time to jump in on Kathy's challenge
& the SSS Wednesday Challenge!
P.S. I'll be showing you soon what I've been so busy with! 
Just think, 25 little pairs of feet! LOL
Supplies not mentioned above:
Wink of Stella- Silver
Paper Studio- Paper
Scotch Perm. Mounting Tape
WRMK- Envelope Board
SU- 1/8" Hand Held Punch
Inkssentials Opaque Pen

29 & I pray MANY MORE, IF....!

Hi Blog Friends!
Just thought I'd drop in here & show you what my latest creation is.
We're celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary today!
I'm so happy that the Lord brought my hubby into my life,
and I HOPE that we spend MANY MORE YEARS together IF,
the Lord tarries.
I will be entering my card in:
 SSS Monday Challenge- Wonderful Watercolor.
Check here:
Kathy Racoosin's Coloring Challenge.
Check here:
Here is my card:
Below is a close up of  the inside tag.
Below is the panel behind the vellum sheet.
I used Gelato's to water color, after I heat embossed the flowers.
(A secret? Sometimes, I don't use watercolor paper, but copy paper.... You don't always have to follow the rules when crafting, right?)
The vellum tones down the bright colors of the Gelatos a bit.
I used MFT- Treat Pocket Die for a little pocket for my tag; the tag is by PTI-Tag Sale #1.
A perfect fit! 
The inside, just a verse I found in my file box that I thought conveyed my love for my sweet hubby.
 And I stamped a floral image with Versa Mark off to the side.
Hope you like!
Marriage is a gift from God!
