Chair-ish Friendships



Hi there! It's already Hump Day! I'm so happy about that. I'm looking forward to the weekend to relax and stamp! Here is a fairly quick card that showcases PTI's couch set. I thought I would make a red 'leather' chair by heat embossing it. Although you cannot see it in the photo, in real life, it creates the leather-look.

I am also ready to share photos from the wedding we photographed last month. There is a slideshow with music as well. I hope you enjoy. I'll probably do a separate post showcasing a few of the favorite pictures that I, surprisingly, photographed. If you like what you see, feel free to leave McArthur a comment on his blog! :) He'll love that, but just don't tell him I sent you! Click HERE to view slideshow + photos.

Hey, luv that little couch it came out great and I'm sure it looks even more amazing in person. After the wedding I do plan on buying a heating gun and some embossing power. What brand of embossing power do you use?
P.S. - I checked out MAC's blog. OMG Ashley the pictures are tooo beautiful. The slideshow blew me away. Of course I have some favorites, but I'll wait to u do your post to talk about it.
