Finally, A Card!!

Good Morning, everyone!! I finally have a stamped project to show you!! I made this card for my sister in law who got married about 2 weeks ago. I looked through my stash of cards and couldn't find anything for a wedding so I whipped this one together. It's pretty much a CASE of myself from this post. I used retired paper from SU! called Le Jardin. This is my all time favorite paper. I also used the retired set Lexicon of Love. Paper is So Saffron, Always Artichoke and Bashful Blue. The ribbon is the 5/8" Old Olive, which I colored with my Always Artichoke marker so it would match my paper, and I used Always Artichoke ink. Really very simple, but still elegant enough for a wedding card.

I've been working on a scrapbook order for my DH's aunt, so I'll have some new stuff to show you soon. I'm very happy with the way it's turning out. My usual style is to gain inspiration from my pictures, so trying to design a scrapbook without any pictures is a little challenging, but fun.

Well, I suppose I should cut this short. We have to get started on schoolwork and housework, which I'm sure you all know is never ending. For History today, the kids are going to watch Obama's inauguration. They learned about the different branches of government last year, so this should be interesting for them. (And I can watch it and say we actually did some work!)
