Surely you have already seen my contest info in this post, but just in case you missed it, here is a recap:
It's time to say bye-bye to many Stampin' Up! stamp sets and accessories. I want YOU to EMAIL ME the top ten stamp sets you think will be retiring this year. The person that has the most correct sets on their list will win a $15 gift certificate (available thru me only) for Stampin' Up! products. I will also draw a name out of all of the entries to win a package of retired Designer Series Paper. (and c'mon, who doesn't LOVE paper???)

Alrighy - there you have it - start flipping thru your catalog and let me know what you think will be retiring. You have until Monday, May 31st at 10pm to email me your list. Contest is not open to other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, or those outside the US.

Now, on with today's program:

Wedding season is upon us - I know well after those wedding invitations I just whipped up. Did I tell all of you that now I've designed their Thank You notes and programs? Such fun! It almost (ALMOST) makes me wish I could redo my wedding. To the same guy of course - well, for today. Depends on how crabby he'll be later today, then I may change my mind and want to trade him in. (He's really cranky this time of year when his allergies are in full swing. I don't blame him - he LOOKS miserable - and unfortunately, being a farmer, his job is 98% outside work!) Anyway - I thought I would whip up a wedding card:

What's the FIRST thing you notice? That really super duper bow??? Yep - I'm working it out!!! Someday's there are a few choice words that come out of my precious little mouth when I'm attempting those bows, but, I just keep on at it. I'll get it down to perfection and ease one of these days! And my customers think I'm good at knot tying - you gals just wait till I throw a bow in one of our stamp club projects!

What else is a little different for me??? Well, besides the purple paper! Why - of course - BLING!!!! I KNOW! Awesome - eh? I've never blinged a card before - and I'm thinking it's quite kewl!

To make this card even sweeter than it already is, I used that cutesy pinking hearts border punch - cha, cha, cha!!!

If you'd like to get your little mitts on this card - it's available for purchase on my Etsy shop - check out the link in the right hand side bar!~

Okey, dokey, that's all for today - don't forget to enter that contest!
