Fabulous,

fabulous weekend!  This was the weekend that our niece, my husband's god-daughter was married out of town.  She is the girl who lived with us for about 5+ months last year when she came to our town to work an internship as a chiropractor for a doctor in our town....was offered a full time position and has since moved here.  Her wedding was out of town so we stayed  had a little get away where my husband, son and I  were able to meet up with our two daughters ( and one longtime  boyfriend) from college.  It was great to have the whole fam together and it was just a fun, fun, FUN wedding!  Lots of dancing, lots of jokes, lots of conversation.  I feel like I am still on a "high" from it.  Then on Sunday we needed to get the boyfriend off to his town, take one daughter a few hours away to her college, get the other daughter off on her 6 hour trip back to her college and get my husband off to a two week business trip to Brazil and then India.  And then Cormick and I came home....whew!  But, sooooo fun!  Here are the cards that I made for Emily and Jake.  One is from my husband and I, one is from my daughter Bessie and her boyfriend Tyler and the last is from my daughter Clarice and son Cormick.  I actually went out and bought two Penny Black stamps specifically for this wedding and will def use them over and over again.  I think they are so elegant and can see lots of ways to use them. Both cards were stamped and embossed on vellum and then colored with copics on the opposite side of the the embossing. I then used a versamark pen on the embossed side on select parts of the image and then covered those areas with glittered embossing powder.  The Pinnacle stamp is done in the colors of Emily's wedding.....and the Bride and Groom stamp dress is done to mimic the "champagne" color of Emily's dress.  I need to work with that particular stamp a bit more....they didn't come in until the day before we left, rather late in the afternoon and so.......well, just didn't have the amount of time I needed to practice.  The last card uses an Impression Obsession cover a card stamp that I also glitter embossed and beribboned.  I also am going to enter the two Penny Black stamps in the current PB challenge which is to create a card with your fav stamp....and now that they are new (hehehe) they are kinda fav's!



                                                                     
Thank you so much for stopping by and wading through such a long post.....obviously I am still bubbling over from the weekend!  I hope to get to all my blog reading and commenting today or tomorrow....I can't wait to see how all of YOU spent you time this past weekend!

Be well,
Sheila

LOVE all three cards Sheila! They look fabulous stamped on vellum and coloured that way! You certainly had a very busy weekend but lots of fun! (Now you are going to be alone like me...does hubby travel often?)
