Talk about being busy!! Also, the heat wave here was brutal...I mean, it was 105 degrees last Tuesday. This was enough to send us to the Okanagan for the weekend to sit in my sister's pool for three days.

Before I left I attended my friend's daughter's bridal shower. This is the card I made for her (another Sharon Johnson "No Time To Stamp" inspiration). This is a 6x6 card and the ribbon is black satin with pearl embellishments. The dress is a Peel Off sticker on Be Creative Tape. I used Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter on the dress and I glued crystals on the necklace:

Also, as Jen and Rob bought their first home I made this one for them too. A "Home Tweet Home" stamp by Impression Obsession, some Copic coloring, Cuttlebug embossing folder and voila! Don't look too closely...when I blew this up I saw some places where I colored out of the lines...that's what I get for doing this at 4:00 in the morning and in a hurry! Thank heavens it was a small picture and went unnoticed!

And...then it was her mother's birthday so...I had to make her a card also. This is another Peel Off Sticker and I followed the pattern from Elizabeth Craft Designs and painted the butterfly with a mix of Sakura Metallic and Stardust pens. The dark spots were done with a Quickie glue pen and Microfine glitter. I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the bottom half and the ribbon was a "find" at Michael's:

Well, I am off to make some more wedding invitation templates and cards. A friend has been diagnosed with cancer and just had surgery. I think she could use a pick-me-up card!

I hope the weather is better where you are and the forest fires are aways away from your homes!

Thanks so much but I wish I could take credit for the designs. They belong to Sharon at "No Time To Stamp". I am but a humble "copycat" and modify her cards to suit my needs.
