To Have and to Hold....

Good morning to you! I am so glad it is already Wednesday! I have to take my van in this morning......due to the very loud muffler/catalytic converter? I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is a muffler/exhaust problem........NOT the catalytic converter!

Anyway, the reason you came here.............. : )

This is a card I created with my Wild Card cartridge and JustRite stamps. The paper is Melissa Frances and Papertrey Ink. I used my scalloped scissors to add a bit of "chocolate" peeking out from the pale pink DP. I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds for some "frosting." I used the wedding set from JustRite, stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold Zing! embossing powder. The circles were cut using my Spellbinders. I also airbrushed and distressed the edges a bit. The flowers are by Prima. As a last touch the tag was sprayed with Shimmerz. : )


Stay warm wherever you are.........Good ole' Chicago is expecting 6-8 inches of snow tonight......can someone say, snow day??
Have a great one!!!

Love that little cake!

GORGEOUS, Michele! Love all the frosting! Hope things aren't too bad with the van--why can't they just run perfectly til we want to get rid of them???

Enjoy the snow--stay inside & cozy!

Like it, love it. I think I ought to buy the Wild Card cartridge. This card and the ones in the Cricut book are tickling my inspiration. Love the colors, the paper, the roses,...

HOLY Matrimony! This is one unique and gorgeous card! Very impressive Michele! Always enjoy a trip to your blog! Sure hope you get a SNOW DAY tomorrow. My DIL (remember Jami?) got one today and already knows she's got another tomorrow. I worked until 3:30 today & will see what tomorrow brings. I always feel like I have to TRY to get in to work. ugh! One other thing...would you believe I just had to have a catalytic convertor installed on my VW right before Christmas? We had two bids of around $800 and then got the local muffler shop to do it for just less than $200! Sometimes it pays to shop around. :) Happy New Year! Smiles, Pam :)
