Best Wishes

We had such a fun time at my cousin's wedding this past weekend.  I have a few pictures to share with you from that, but first I want you to see my wedding card that was published in Paper Crafts' Card Ideas for Paper Crafters in August 2011. (I had two cards in that issue, and you can see the other HERE)





The papers are from Anna Griffin (bought on eBay a couple of years ago) and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Labels.

As for the wedding we attended, I have a cute story to share.  My cousin's new husband is a HUGE Phillies baseball team fan.  And, HE is a bigger scrapbooker than SHE is, and the scrapbooks are all about sports.


As a wedding surprise, the bride arranged for the Phillies team mascot, the Philly Phanatic, to come to the reception.  It was a BLAST!



The groom was completely surprised and overwhelmed with emotion when the Phanatic walked in.  His new wife started off their marriage in a very wonderful way!

I'm sorry I don't have time to post a supply list for this card; dinner is almost ready and I'm in the midst of un-decorating the Christmas tree (a job I detest).

Thanks for joining me today!

I'm not fond of taking down Christmas trees either... so much more fun decorating them.
Your card is one gorgeous masterpiece, girl. Congratulations!

This is a very elegant card Colleen! Sounds like the wedding and reception were lots of fun! I enjoy undecorating the Christmas tree. As I put the ornaments away, I think about where we were or who gave it to us when we first used it. There are so many happy memories on that tree.

I gotta pay more attention to the artist who make these cards. Sometimes I really do but this issue, I must have not really looked at. Wonderful card! Congrats on two cards in one issue. Love the story about the wedding!

What a fun thing to have his favorite mascot at the wedding. I'm sure that was a huge surprise.

Speaking of sports, my team won the National Championship last night. Whooppppeeeee! What a game!!!! I'm still in heaven over it.

Hey, you should have taken that tree down when I did. It would be long over. HA
