Loonie Stampers Challenges

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was very refreshing! I got to spend time in my studio, adding some items (not purchased - just organizing) and even made a few cards. I went to my friend's dinner party at Maggiano's and that was very delicious and fun. Yesterday seemed quite long, but I didn't mind that at all! I enjoyed a hot cup of coffee while some electrical contractors completed a few jobs around the house. I did lots and lots of laundry. I finished the second family room (which is located off of the studio). We were able to enjoy it for most of the day and are loving the new spaces. Mac can watch TV/play video games, while I'm crafting away! I'm glad I'm not in a room all alone anymore! Anyway, here are two cards inspired by the last couple of Loonie Stampers challenges. The colors was very challenging for me, but I finished them (WHEW)!

Oh yeah, those bridal pictures I 'modeled' for McArthur are posted here. It may not look like it, but I honestly could barely breathe! Yeah, I got in my wedding dress, but it's nothing like when I wore it on the wedding day. He is a great photographer. I just tried to help him out since he wanted to take some pictures of a wedding gown in a creative way.

Hi Ashley, the cards are fabulous!

Tell Mac that the photos are awesome! My favorites were the photos taken outside. You looked perfect; the dress didn't look tight.
