Hey there! Glad to see you again! Yesterday was a nice day, I got my review at work and it was very good. Today is my boss’ birthday and I made a fun card and gift bag that I will post sometime over the next few days. We are supposed to have rain and thunderstorms today but I can’t complain, the weather has been beautiful here. Tomorrow I’m headed out to the Hampton’s for work and I’m going to stay at a friends for the night. As an added bonus my friend Heather is going to meet me out there. Good times will be had!

Today I have my Design Team card for Catherine & Cathy Create. This week’s challenge is Here Comes the Bride…
I really like the Love & Laughter Stamp Set. I have used it for so many cards over the past year or so and I think it looks great paired with some of the new catalog goodies. The base of my card is Smokey Slate Card Stock. The background is a piece of Costal Cabana that I embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Smokey Slate and embossed that with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper is flagged on the bottom and slipped in behind the label. The image and greeting are both from the Love & Laughter Stamp Set and are stamped in Costal Cabana. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the dress and angled the piece of Whisper White that greeting is stamped on and tucked that behind the dress. I love the color combination and all of the texture the embossing folders give. Thanks for dropping by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Catherine & Cathy Create Here Comes the Bride challenge.
