Mr. & Mrs.

Happy Hump Day Everybody! We're almost at the end...I can see it! The first week back from a vacation is always so very hard. My mind is so focused on getting to the next holiday, which is less than two weeks away...YAAAAY! Alrighty, now that I've gotten the vacation topic off of my chest, here is a card I made "last year"...really just last month! It's a wedding card for the Mister and Misses! It's traditional, but that pop of yellow makes it hip. Why do I envision giving this to one of the Ace of Cakes employees? I like that show. Do you watch it? I wish I had my own wedding cake made by them. I really could have too since they are located in Baltimore and I got married only about 45 minutes away...SHUX! OK - I went off again on a tangent! Just a tad bit chatty while typing this! Anyway, I have lots of designer deadlines fast approaching, but I have a few cards up my sleeve to share with you in the meantime!

Have a fun day and as always, I'm so grateful for your visit!

  1. Trim yellow cardstock to create an A2 card base.

This is so pretty! Love the pop of yellow, such an unexpected & fun detail.

Ace of Cakes is one of my favorite shows... I love that even though it's "work" they still have a great time doing what they love.
