Unless you live on another planet you are aware that the big Royal Wedding is fast approaching.  At this point, even in the states, you can't turn on the TV or read an article without some reference to it.  I'm sure it will be big and beautiful.

Due to the upcoming nuptials, Scrapbook Sisters challenge this week is Wedding or Anniversary.  I chose to do a Wedding card.  I like all white with a splash of color.  I usually try to use the color of the bridesmaids gowns when I make a wedding card.  I think it really personalizes the card.  Unfortunately no matter what I do I cannot get a good picture of the card.  I think it is because I used shimmer paper for it.  

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Charisma - Weddings / Anniversaries
Mami Doodles - Punch/Die cuts
Crafty Catz - Embossing
Stamp Man - Embossing
Creative Inspirations - Punches/Dies
Pile it On - Say it in Style
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Purple
Card Cupids - 2 colors
Magical Mondays - Pearls & Swirls
Woodware USA - Anything Goes
Papertake - Dimension
Oldie but Goodie - Wedding or Anniversary
Creative Craft Challenge - Embossing 

Thank you for stopping by.  I really appreciate it and I love all your comments.  Keep them coming!

Happy Easter

Good Morning!!! How is everyone.  Yesterday we finally had a beautiful day where I could open all my windows and enjoy the weather!   Unfortunately we only had one day of it but I will take it!  

We have a fun challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations that I kindof messed up!!  Yes I confess.  The challenge is a sketch.  I got so involved in making this card I forgot!!  When I was looking at the card I thought "something is wrong" but couldn't put my finger on it.  When it dawned on me what I did I couldn't believe it.  I loved this sketch when I saw it was coming up.  The funny part about this is that it must be a good sketch because, except for the 1/2 piece of DP I actually followed the sketch without even knowing it.    It was too late to make another card and I didn't dare start to pull this apart when I finally realized what I had done.  Here is the sketch.

We also have a wonderful sponsor this week.  Wink Wink.  There are some adorable images.  You should visit them and see what is available.  You also need to check out what the other DT's did.  They did such an amazing job with this week's challenge.
