Two Hearts...

One Lifetime... how sweet is that sentiment!! My oldest daughter (turning 25 in August) has a friend (since middle school) that is getting married next weekend and we'll be there "with bells on"!! She's a gorgeous redhead (my hubby called her "red" well, he still does... and when she died her hair blonde-wanting something different- I HAD to speak up!!

This card's for Alisha


Used the CR84FN colors of bright pink, tan, and neutral. My tan is a crumbcake. Finally finished a card in time!! Used some older Basic Gray Olivia paper and embossed with SU's Vintage Wallpaper folder-- using the debossed side. Sentiment is from Verve's Anniversary Birds. Added ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Added a couple of stickpins... for a more girly feel.

The Colors...












Trying to "squeeze" some stampin in- between the holiday and doc office visits! My youngest hurt her foot and was on crutches for a while and the hubs did a number on his shoulder (heard today rotator cuff tears are graded small, medium, large, and massive) well, he's on the large massive side-leaning to massive. Had a rotator cuff repair of the same shoulder 6 years ago and the doc told us today that was a small tear. It can be fixed and functional-- that's good news!!

What a life!!

Have a wonderful July 4th my US friends!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Love the card, Vickie!! Great touch with the embossed DP. Sure she will love it. Good for you for speaking up when she went blonde - I would have too :) Glad to hear hubby's rotator cuff issue has been determined and can be repaired. From what I hear those are very painful!! Hang in there...and keep on stamping :)
