Hello! How do you like the new look? ;)

Got a couple cards to share with you today; first up is the card I kept blabbing about yesterday...

Ha-ha! The bow has been conquered! I have mastered it to make it do my bidding! Mwahahaha!...anyways, moving on...;)
 I made this card for CPS (sketch #135), the Etsy Inspired challenge - first time participating, and I just could not help it when I saw Gypsy Roses's bag...

I knew at once what paper and what I wanted to do for this challenge...

I'm tellin' ya, this "Everafter" line is just fantabulous! I'll probably just hoard it for awhile, but I could not resist making it after seeing this post...she also had a handy link for making that bow. This is the first wedding card I've made...I don't really need one, but I just felt like it...oh, and by the way, the sentiment was printed up (using the "Mr. Wade" font from Kevin and Amanda) on my computer because I don't have any wedding related stamp sentiments.

Now for the other card I made before this one...not too happy with it, but as I was reading on another HA gals blog, what I may not like, another person may go ga-ga over. I don't know how or why, but if they like it, all is well with me. :)

This plain card, for Lexi's Creations

Just one last thing; I was featured over at 365 cards for this card...

thanks, gals!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)
