Ahoy Sailor


How's your Sunday going? Mine has been very full, yet relaxing. I even put on my wedding dress today and took pictures. You read that right! I squeeeeeezed into my wedding dress (could barely breathe) and took some bridal shots for Mac's portfolio. We went to a weed infested area and it was a bit scary, but I did it! I'll share some pictures with you when he's finished.

I also got a chance to finish this card for K. Werner's color challenge. I thought about a baby boy when I saw the colors. I actually forgot about the green. Then remembered suddenly. So, I added a strip below the ribbon and no one knew I forgot, right?! Well, now you do because I spilled the beans!

I hope to make a couple of cards tonight for the Loonie Stampers Challenge that I did not do last week and the one for this week. Let's hope I get done becaus I am also in the processing of making dinner.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend! I'll be at the Papertrey Ink release party tonight in the forum if you want to chat too!
