my cousin's wedding card

hey everyone-
thanks for the get well wishes, I was feeling pretty junk this morning when I went to work, but I came home early and slept for 4 hours and feel better. In any case, I spent most of yesterday (in between taking breaks and Tylenol for my fever) finishing up his guest book. I am taking my paper cutter w/ me and extra embellishments so I can finish it up there... YIKES!

I made this tri-shutter card for him, but I bumped up the size so it can fit into a 5 x7 envelope. Their colors are eggplant purple and silver so here's my take on that. The flowers are from sizzix dies and I textured embossed the backgrounds of each section (silver part). Then I cut out the words w/ my cricut (still getting used to this thing). The sentiment is from Corinthians and then the stamp on the last panel was from cute stuff.

All in all I think it turned out okay, it might be a little too big to stand up for long periods of time, but that's okay.

Well, I probably won't be able to post when I'm gone but I will make a slide show of the finished guest book when I come back.

Thanks again for the get well wishes and safe travel wishes. I hope that I'll be better enough to comfortably enjoy the long plane rides and stopovers we have.

Take care and I'll try to go blurfing when I'm gone. I got the new 3G my touch from t-mobile so I can see some blogs but it just takes so long to load. I don't want to miss anything you guys make- you're all so awesome!

2 cards and a prize!

Hi everyone-
sorry I've been AWOL since last week- work's been crazy busy (DOES EVERYONE HAVE THEIR HURRICANE SUPPLIES READY? Even if it's only a tropical depression (hopefully by the time it comes, it's never to late to be prepared!) and I've been working on my cousin's guest book. I got a little stuck b/c their colors are silver, black and eggplant (dark purple) and I'm trying to stick w/ that color scheme. I'll post some pics when I'm finally done. We leave on Wednesday and I haven't even packed yet...YIKES!

In any case, I made a sympathy card for my stepdad's friend's family using a SU set and then I colored the leaves and the flowers w/ metallic zig markers.

I made a birthday card using the new pink cat studio stamps (Fairy Friends) for my friend/supervisor. I popped up the fairies and I flocked the bunny fairy (she is so cute!) The flower I used for the inside is a nestabilities set that I got from J's. I got the stamp set from Cute stuff so if you haven't gotten it yet- head over there!

The last thing to share is that I was guestbook #1 winner for the Stamp and Scrap Hawaii blog so I won this prize. I got a lovely pin and my first Tilda Stamp it has her holding a Merry Christmas banner. Thanks to Jen and the team for this special prize.

We'll I'm off to finish my cousin's book and to pack. I'm not sure if I'll be able to post before I leave but I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you guys later :)

Take care and God Bless
