The pearfect couple

One of the blessings that has occured since starting my blog is all of the inspiration I have received from all the challenges out there. Everyone thinks so differently and when there are challenges they help me to gown and develop my abilities. One of those amazing women is Kristina

One of the neat things she does is videos, serriously you get to see and hear her creative process twice a week! She does the finally friday videos for 2peasinabuckect.com and they have recently made those into a challenge. This week the challenge was to use dsp in a different way than it was intented.

As I was looking at my dsp, I also had another color challenge in mind from SPCC, which you see below. Don't you love when everything comes together easily!

Here is my creation

I did case my layout from Kristina's Finally Friday card. I adore the simplicity and how he lets the dsp speak for itself. The punch border is actually my label punch turned to the side. I thought the felt letters really worked well. The sentiment is what tied it all together, but I didn't have any stamps that said that, so I used the thickers and my own handwritting. My writting sure is not like some of the greats, but I still like the personal touch. I ended with the faux stiching. Love this card.


This is for Marie and Derrick's wedding card. That is the wedding that Izzy will be a flower girl in. We are getting her dress from the seamstress that altered it for us today. She is so excited about being a princess. Just what the Diva needs to be the center of attention. The wedding is September 5th, so prayers for a safe trip and that Miss thing till be good would be really appreciated!

It's a good life!
