Christmas Cards and Wedding Pictures

Here is the card that my SIL plans on sending out this year. We cased it from page 53 of the catty. I think the colors are different, and we added Dazzling Diamonds on the trees, and as snow on the ground. It's very sparkly in real life. The glitter adds that extra pizzaz. The snow is embossed with white ep. The stamp is from a retired set from last year. The name escapes me now.
Yes, I know the color in this photo is way off, but I couldn't get it right. I don't know what the deal is with my camera. Anyway, here is a shaker card we put together, it's basically the same as this card we did at Technique Class last month. I had some extra pieces laying around, so I just used a snowflake insead of the birds, and Microbeads and Dazzling Diamonds instead of birdseed. The window for the frame is my Scallop Circle Punch. Snowflakes are from Snowburst, which a fellow demo was kind enough to let me borrow. They are stamped in Whisper White Craft ink.
I plan on showing off these 2 cards at my workshop next week. She requested Christmas cards, so this is what I have so far. I still have to plan my demo cards and the make 'n take, but that shouldn't be too hard.

Now if any of my regular readers were wondering how the wedding went last month, here are a couple pictures just for you. My mom made Amanda's dress. I did a few minor things like sew on the trim. That's about it. My mom can sew anything. I'm serious. Here's my mom and Amanda.
Of course, this is me and Amanda.

The little princess herself. Here's a funny story. When I was rolling her hair the night before and the day of the wedding, she was so fidgety and kept asking "are you almost done?" But then when the fun stuff came like her dress, special necklace and earrings, the crown, etc... She said very excitedly, "This is fun!" Later that night as we were relaxing at home, she said, "Momma, I didn't like Sheila's wedding, I LOVED Sheila's wedding!"

Don't they make an adorable little couple? That's exactly what I thought!!
