One of my friends got married on Saturday and it was the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to! It was such a perfect day for an outside wedding. Everything was perfect, there were even fire works.
This is the card that I made for them, I may have posted this before as an invitation. I know, the Baroque Motifs set is retired but it is my favorite set to use for weddings. I heat embossed using Black Powder and the Newlyweds is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Happy Birthday Craig!

My oldest son turned 5 on the 9th, I can't get over how fast time flies by.
Craig decided he wanted to have a sports themed party so we used the retired sports balls. I got the idea for this card right out of last years Idea Book and Catalogue. The balls are heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder.

My neice turned 6 years old last week and she has already lost two teeth! They just grow to fast.

I cased this card from Niki Toll's Blog and made minor changes.
