Not Your Typical Wedding Card

Hey there! So, my cousin is having a St. Louis Cardinals themed wedding and I wanted to make her a super adorable card that had a baseball theme.  This was somewhat difficult because I wanted to fully embrace the baseball theme but still make it a "pretty" wedding card. So, tell me what you think. Did I accomplish my goal?!? I hope the newlyweds LOVE this card and can treasure it forever as not a typical wedding card! :)

Here it is:

The only patterend paper I used was the paper with the baseballs on it and I unfortunately do not know the brand for it. I colored the skin, hair and come clothing using my Copic markers. From MB's Treasurista I used the Maraschino and Charcoal Twinery Bakers Twine as well as the silver mesh bling around the "Baseball Field." 

Let me know what you think about this different style of wedding card!

Support the Girls....

October (which crazy enough is right around the corner) is National Breast Cancer Awareness month!  I love being able to support the cure for breast cancer any way I can as well as supporting and encouraging those whom have been affected by breast cancer. I wanted to make a card to show my support! So, here it is:

The paper collection I used was the Me & My Big Ideas breast cancer support paper stack! As soon as I saw this stack I just knew I had to buy it! I purchased both the 8X8 and the 12X12!! The stamp set is of course a MFT a la mode stamp set titled Fight Like a Girl. I colored her using my Copic markers and added some I am Roses as a corner embellishment. The round doily as well as the flags are also MFT die-namics. Can you tell I LOVE My Favorite Things?!?!?

Anyways, that is my share for the day! I hope this post inspires you to make a breast cancer support card for someone you love or maybe even a stranger. You have no idea how cards like these during tough times can really brighten an individuals day! :)

Life and Other Things....

Good afternoon everyone! What a glorious day it is today! The weather is GORGEOUS and life is great! My husband and I have recently moved into a new townhouse (last week) so crafting has been at a hault. Until this morning that is... :D I opened up the windows, poured myself a big cup of coffee and began crafting. Oh how great it felt to be back at my desk. 

My new craft room is only 8 X 10 so I feel pretty crowded but I will make do because we love the rest of our new townhouse tremendously! :) Well, I will be back later to share a new card I made. Please come back to check it out.
