eat, drink, and be married!!

SQUEEKED a card in!! This girl has computer elbow- actually tendonitis. Honestly- the last couple months have been busy- two audits at work. my daughters friend died {she was like a daughter to me-it's been tough) and then, when things finally aren't hitting me from all sides....tendonitis. My job involves working on computers all day long and then, I get home and want to make cards/visit blogs.... all those repetitive hand movements- I've had to take a break. Learning to use my opposite hand - interesting and frustrating... so slow!

Enough of my woes... I do have a card.... for three challenges


Playing in the WPlus9 Birthday Celebrations- Trends. I used gold, misting, and sequins. The leaves are from WPlus9's Woodgrain additions stamped in versamark and embossed with gold. Added some misting with Heidi Swapp gold and Tatttered Angels black, a few sequins and a fun sentiment from WPlus9 Written on Ribbon. The background gold paper- don't you just love it... the pattern and color... perfect!

The layout is CAS(E) this sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Wedding/Anniversary!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
