Here's the wedding party (my hubby is the one kneeling in front of the groom):
And then here is a picture of me and my hubby! My friend Carrie stylied my hair and it turned out AWESOME...I always love how she does it! (My personal stylist AKA my sister was on vacation so I couldn't have her do my updo!)
I am heading to Illinois for a few days to check out a salon with my sister and mom! A girls get-a-way for a few days! Woo-Hoo! It is bound to be a GREAT time! Talk to you all when I return!

Now....ON TO THE NEW CARDS:
Used: Stamping Bella - Cosmobella Stamp; primas, Studio G stamps, stickles, prisma pencils and OMS and some ribbon in my stash!
The 2nd card is going to my SUPER BELLA SISTAH Chris....it's postal right now!
Used: Stamping Bella - Superbella image I got in a swap, prima, stickles, prisma pencils and OMS, paper is CM.
Hope you enjoyed my latest creations! I would REALLY like to get a watermark for all of my work...but don't have Photoshop to do so! Hope I can figure something out so my creations don't get stolen! I downloaded a freebie program...but it doesn't do much....and I only got one watermark to work....it wouldn't even work on my second picture! Ahhhhh!
PS - my signature is giving me trouble tonight....crazy computer...nothing wants to work...signature or watermarks!

Tomorrow I am leaving for a long weekend camping trip with my family. This will be our 3rd annual camping trip! We go to a country music festival about 1 hour away from home! It is a small festival...but is SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!! I am going to have lots of fun this year seeing how I have off the rest of the summer and don't have to worry about getting home Sunday to get ready for a work week! This is my 1st summer off in 10 years! WOW how time flies!
However, before I leave for the weekend I have one creation to share with all my blogger friends! My sister came over last night to highlight my hair (my sis just graduated last Friday from cosmetology school.....gee, I love having a personal hairstylist....love you sis!) and she had a job interview yesterday so wanted to see if I had any Thank You cards! All you have to do is say the word card and my eyes light up....so I said no....but I can whip one up for you....and that is just what I did! I think it turned out awesome....for a thank you card for a salon owner! The only thing I didn't like is that I don't have a static pillow thingy to rub on my paper before I heat emboss so I have some little black flecks on the paper that I didn't want there! Oh well! My sister loved it and that's what counts! I also got to use my NEW Nestibilities so I was a happy girl!
Here is the creation:
Hope you enjoyed!

Next is another fun card! Doesn't it make you want to get all prettied up and go to a party! Paper used is DCWV and Stampin' Up. Stamp used is Winobella from Stamping Bella.
This next card makes me think of being a little girl! All little girls want to be ballerinas....at least I always did!

Next is a graduation card that my mom asked me to make for a party she is going to! Image used is Diplomabella from Stamping Bella.
And here is the inside of the card! It's my VERY FIRST Embossing project....thanks to my Cricut Sister Stepahnie who just got me all the fun embossing powders and heat tool to play with! We have our friend's wedding coming up the end of this month, so I thought I would get their card done while I had some time! My hubby is standing up in this wedding so it should be a lot of fun! Hitchedafellabella was used from Stamping Bella, and paper is from a swap from SCS.
Happy Birthday to Me....Happy Birthday to Me....Happy Birthday Dear Me.....oh wait....that day is already done! Well here is a fun birthday card none-the-less! I guess I was on a purple kick for this one....image used was Cakeabella from Stamping Bella and paper used from my stash!
Hope you enjoyed all of my fun projects and cards! I made a few more and one more project...but I also sent in my application to Katie (from 3 Little DReaMs) for a position on her Design Team and had to include some non-published projects! I am crossing my fingers, toes, legs, arms, eyes, and anything else that I can cross that I get on her Design Team! I love her site, and I get so much inspiration and learn so much from Katie! If I am selected I am hoping to help people like she has helped me!
