How did you meet?

On this weeks SYTYCS Challenge & Chatter thread, Megan asked all of us how we met our hubby’s, and the stories have been delightful!

Then of course, came the wedding picture uploads, which are even more beautiful than the stories.

I want you guys to check out the thread and read all of the beginnings that become lasting marriages (which IMO we hear very little of these days!) but I will show you a wedding and a honeymoon pic!

This is one of my favorite wedding pics, although I’m not sure why.  I felt so beautiful that day, and just loved standing there with Martin holding me.

Here is a pic from our honeymoon.  We look so young!  What happened???  Sigh. This is probably my favorite picture ever, so I had to share it with all of you!

Thinking of Hoo

I wanted to show you guys a quickie option for our October Kit – Thinking of Hoo.

I stamped the image (which is the owl on the branch and the thought bubble) on my note card, and again on a Cream Perfect Paper panel.  I then colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I cut out the thought bubble from the Cream PP Panel and popped it up on my card front.  I added some hearts, and then tied my ribbon around the front, and I’m done!

This month’s kit contains:

  • Exclusive, UNRELEASED Thinking of Hoo? mini stamp set ($9.00)
  • Memory Box paper pack Butterfield Collection, ($6.00)
  • 5 perfect paper panels in Cream ($0.85)
  • Metal Mix Adornments Baby Braddies  ($5.95)
  • 2 yards of brown saddle stitch ribbon ($1.95)
  • 5 Scalloped Notecards in Fossil ($5.00)
  • Downloadable project sheet FREE

Supplies used:

MFT Thinking of Hoo Kit

Red Magic Dew Drop

We are ready to dance the night away! Are you?

Here is my sample card for this weeks West Coast Swing challenge, and here’s how I made it…

I cut out a hole in the center of my card using my Nesties, and punched out two ribbon holes at the top of the card.

I punched out two white scalloped cirlces and two pink scalloped circles to *dangle* on my card front.

Then I taped my ribbon to the back of one pink scalloped circle before I glued the other scalloped circle on top.

This is my completed scalloped circles, with the ribbon running between them.

Here’s the inside of the card with the dangley greeting!
