First and foremost ... ta-da-ta-da-ta-da-TA-DA-TA-DA!!! I FINALLY finished making the wedding announcements on Saturday!! Yippy Skippy!! HOOOORAAYYY!!! Hallelujah!! ManyManyMany thanks to Becky (mother of the bride), Hannah (the bride), TJ (the Groom), Denise (the Groom's Mother), Kacie (the Bride's Friend), Whitney (the Groom's Sister) and Amelia (the card-designer's daughter - as in MY daughter!!) for helping me assemble all the parts I had been making the last two weeks. I had between 6 and 8 slaves, er, I mean HELPERS for NINE HOURS on Saturday helping assemble the darn things. SOOO happy we were able to get 'em done!! I will post a photo of what we made in another week ... I promised Becky I wouldn't post anything until they had a chance to mail them out and people had a chance to actually get 'em first (I am pretty sure most of those 560 people don't even know this blog evem EXISTS, but I wouldn't wanna ruin ANYone's surprise!!)
Soooooooooo .... I FINALLY got to make a card today ... Just. For. FUN!!! I've been thinking about this card for DAYS (saw something similar on another blog, but can't find the link now!), but haven't had two seconds to make it. It was so much fun to create just for the sake of creating ... and I'm sending this to my little cousin, Joshua. He is turning 3 years old. Happy Birthday, Little Man!!!
