Lilac Ampersand Wedding Card

As I mentioned in my last post, I had a wedding to attend this month. It was really nice and we were so lucky that my mother-in-law and sister-in-law offered to watch the kids for us last night. Plus, the kids always enjoy sleeping over at grammas, which isn't as often as they would like. But let me tell you how  shocked I was to wake up at noon today. Yes, noon! I have never, EVER slept in that late since having kids. I couldn't believe it! But I loved it, of course. That was about 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Um, hello! Thank you, sleep gods!

Anyway, I chose to make another Tracy Gough inspired ampersand card using lilac since the bride used a light purple on her handmade wedding invitations. Again, the Ampersand was cut from Plantin Schoolbook at 6" in white and also in lilac using the Shadow feature. The lettering was cut at 1". This time, I tried the groom's hat from the Wedding Solutions cartridge and trimmed a bit of the tiara on the sides. The swirls were from the same cart as well.

Tonight, I hope to make a couple of birthday cards for my mother and my dearest friend from elementary school who share the same birthday on November 16. Not sure what I will make but if I do get a chance to make them tonight, I'll be sure to post pictures for you.

In the meantime, you might want to head on over to my other blog for a chance to win a super cool HP Photosmart eStation printer. It's valued at $399.99 and I'm sure it will come in handy for scrapbook lovers. Think of all the photos you can print at home and more! I feel bad it's only open to Canadian residents, though.
