Happy Wedding Day....and Happy Anniversary Paper Sweeties!

Hello Everyone,
I am having a lovely afternoon in my craft room today as my son is at day camp all day today!  It is super quiet without him here though and I miss him already!!!!  LOL!   But it is good for him to go and have fun with lots of other kids his age.  Today they are having a Reptile Man bring lots of animals to see and Boeing Astronomy will be there to show the kids the heavens.  They are also learning fire safety as they will be having a special cook-out later this week!   I cannot wait to go pick him up in a few minutes and see how he enjoyed the day.  I stayed long enough this morning to watch them open camp with some singing:

They are in a lovely wooded area near our home and I am glad that they have lots of shade as it is supposed to reach 85 degrees today which is hotter than normal for Seattle. 

Since I had some time to craft I made a card for my husband's cousin Natalie who just got married last weekend.  I am late getting it off to her but I think sometimes it is fun to receive things when you return from your honeymoon too!  At least I hope so! 

I used The Shabby Tea Room's latest challenge  - "week #178 Lazy Days"as my inspiration.  Here is the inspiration photo:
This week Starr is our creative host and she asks that we create a card or project inspired by the COLORS FROM THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE A METAL ELEMENT!

 My metal element is the stickpin at the top left of my card.  I used stamp sets from Paper Sweeties.  I just love the wedding sets that Debbie has in the shop.  And it is Paper Sweeties 1 year Anniversary too!  Happy Anniversary Debbie!  I look forward to many more years of creating with your beautiful products!

Thanks for taking a look at my card!  I am off to pick up my sweet boy!

  6. So pretty! She will love it when she returns. Who doesn't like a surprise? I am not familiar with that line, so I will check them out. I need to do a wedding card for my girlfriend. I am kicking around a baseball theme one as her and her future hubby are big fans. One a Yankee fan one a Red Sox fan, that alone amazes me..(coming from a Met fan!)
