Hi there! Hope all is well with you. I had a lot of fun with April while she was in town visiting. We completed all the wedding invitations over the weekend! Yahoo :) There wasn't any stamping involved other than on the envelopes so when all was said and done, the assembly took roughly 6 hours. April and I worked for 3 hours on Saturday then her Mom joined us on Sunday and we wrapped it up within 3 hours. Scott being my tech support 24/7, designed and formatted the inside of the invitation as well as the response card info. April was very appreciative to have that task behind her and skipped off with her box full of invites :) I feel very blessed that my son Jerry met such a sweet girl and that I had a chance to get to know her over the past 5 years.
I had some time to play today, so I made this mixed media card. After creating the colorful background paper using the Gelli Arts printing plate and various acrylic paints, I die cut 6 square panels using Die-namics Pierced Square STAX dies and a heart using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty die.
For added interest and contrast I randomly stamped the chicken wire design from Distressed Background Blocks and stenciled design using Concentric Circles. I finished it off with a sentiment from Winged Beauties and a Sno Cone button:

Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet ;)
