Happily Ever After

Hey there!  I'm glad you dropped by today.  Got another made-before-surgery card to show you.  It's a wedding card using some Stampin' Up goodies that are retired.  I am not sure I actually have some current SU in my stash.  Retired stuff costs less, but is no less pretty.  It makes me happy to use them!


This is a wedding card to place in the shop, in my basket of creations for sale.  The sentiment is from Ever After.  


My mom's been visiting with us since the weekend, and we're having a good time.  When she comes to town, we always go shopping.  Even with this big boot on my foot and crutches in tow, we manage to get out a little.  I look for places that offer free use of a wheelchair or motorized scooter, so that means we've been able to go to Target, IKEA, AC Moore and JoAnn's.  The last two are craft stores, of course.  :-)  I am on the lookout for Copic markers, so it looks like we'll be visiting Michael's soon, too.

Oh, before I go, I'd like to thank the folks at Papercraft Star for a Super Nova Award for THIS card and at Moxie Fab World  for a Trigger Target Award for THIS card.  Feels good to get a few prizes!
