For the Newlyweds


How's life treating you? For me, I was a bit under the weather. How do allergies hit you in the middle of July? Well, they hit me big time! So, I had to get juiced up on some meds so my nose and head could feel regular again! Let's hope it works SOON!

I made this card a couple weeks ago for my cousin, but still have not sent it. Why I do this I have no clue! Anyway, I used some new Stampin' Up! stamps (but they came out earlier this year). Love that big flower and how you can create a simple, graphic background. I used colors I saw photographed at the wedding since I did not attend.

Have you remembered to vote in the Gallery Idol contest? Well, don't forget.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Great use of that stamp Ashley!

I hope you're feeling better. I don't have allergies, but my DH and DS both do. As a matter of fact I had to keep the baby home from school a couple of days b/c he was feeling so miserable. :-(

Take care of yourself! :-)

I love your card! I bought this stamp set and then couldn't seem to make anything I liked with it! Now I'm going to have to give it another go!
Hope you are feeling better quickly!
