I love this sketch so much I did two cards, and definately plan on using it again. Thanks to Di for the inspiration!
I do realize that these cards look awfully plain without a sentiment on them, but I prefer to leave them blank for the time being, until I know what/or whom they'll be used for.

Here is the beautiful bride and our Dad walking down the tiki-torch lined "aisle". This is part of the ceremony. They had a sand ceremony, kind of like with the candles in the church, but here each person has their own vase of colored sand that they layered in a clear vase. Each layer has a special meaning and then the last layer is Becky and Darrell's different colored sands poured together to represent their union. It makes such a lovely keepsake!
This is the entire Bridal party with the parents. They each had only one witness, myself and Darrel's best friend. simple and fairly casual!

The one on the top is made from my scraps from the card below. It is definately Bety inspired, in the use of the flowers, buttons, and twine.
The black card is just some playing around with some more scraps. I inked that chipboard flower but my red ink just doesn't "match" the other reds in the cards! Oh well you win some and lose some, right?
Alicia, to answer your question from my last post my corner rounder is from EK Success, Don't know if that's a brand name or not? I bought it at Walmart, and it doesn't cut through folded cardstock...... easily!

Well, I've had absolutely NO time to play! We did put the house on the market, the sign went up yesterday, so since last Thursday we have pretty much done nothing but redo the two rooms that still had not been redone since we moved in, 5 yrs ago! Thankfully my MIL Debbie has been with us every step of the way helping out, if not, I'm not sure things woud have ever been finished, so.......... BIG "Thank You" to Debbie!
and.... my sister's wedding is this coming Sat. I've been busy finishing up the party favors that will be given away, and I still have a speach to write.....??????? Hopefully I'll find some time to create , as there are a couple of cards that I've seen and wanted to try!
Missing my craft table!

Sunday was the annual family picnic for Daren's work. They have a ring toss tournament for the adults, a bouncy tent, face painting, balloon animals and lots of games, prizes, and candy for the kids! Bergen and Abbey both got their faces painted....Bergen actually sat for over an hour to get this spiderman look, not sure if you can see Abbey's heart in this picture!
Saturday and Sunday night we actually spend at the in-laws house and I got time to make a few cards while I was there! This first one is another one of Carla's sketches. It's not exactly the same, but I kind of adapted it and it incorporates many of the elements from her sketch.
This one I made just playing aroundlast night using up some of Debbie's scraps! I love going through her scrap box. I think I could scrap off just her scraps! I did make one other card, but the picture seems to have disappeared? I will save that for a post tomorrow!
Well I hope you all had as wonderful a weekend as we did!

I always love do Carla's sketch challenges, as they're very unique and I do find them very challenging! I spent most of last night and this morning working on it! Here is what I came up with for her latest one. There are 2 pics. , as one shows the colors in the card much better then the other, but you can't see the image stamped in white. It reads "Sealed with a Kiss" hence, the "x" and "o" in the flowers!

Well, we had a wonderful wekend up at the camp. We headed up at 4 pm Friday afternoon, and came down around 1 pm yesterday. The kids had loads of fun playing in the lake, and with the rocks and sand. I don't think Abbey had a dry outfit left by the time we left! They collected about 6 tiny little toads, and one rather large one. We roasted hot dogs and marshmellows around the campfire at night! Berg and Tyrell found a good sized stick to use for batting practice, and JR made them a bow with a stick and some wire! Abbey and Jalisa mostly stuck to Barbies and playing chief!
The job interview went well, I think, but it sounds as though they're interviewing alot of people, asking everyone to keep their fingers crossed for me, as I really need this job! I'll hear, good or bad, sometime next week!
Hopefully, I'll get some time to create something later today or this evening. Missing it! I've quickly browsed everyone's blogs and all the new posts look so great! I just haven't found the time to sit down and comment yet!
Have a great day everyone!

I just got home this morning, as my car broke down AGAIN, while we were away (seriously it's NOT a clunker either, just a streak of bad luck I guess!) checked my blog... and found 14 comments on my last post! Wow, I think that's the most I've ever had!
THANK YOU all for your kind words!
Anyway, the good news from all this is I had a phone message waiting for me, about a job interview....FINALLY! So I go for that tomorrow afternoon, so wish me luck on that!
We're headed to the camp for the weekend...yeah ....can't wait! It's so rustic, no power (generator at night), no running water.....20 mins. by boat just to get there......so peaceful and quiet! The kids LOVE it!
I do have the itch to get creative, but's it's going to have to wait for now!
I'll be back next week...TTYL
Have a great weekend everyone!
