Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Mark Delawder


For those of you not on my Facebook page, here are a few photos
of my granddaughter's wedding over this past weekend! 
What a beautiful & blessed day!

 Mother & Daughter looking more like sisters!
(my two beauties!)

Daddy's Little Girl

 The bridal party did all the church decorations!
Country Chic was the theme and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!


You may now kiss your beautiful wife!!

The groom made the alter structure and now that the wedding is over,
the intention is to secure it in their backyard and add a swing to it!  
What a GREAT idea and what beautiful memories it will invoke with every sit & swing moment.

First SELFIE as husband & wife!




RECEPTION





Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
Ending this post with a photo of  the proud grandparents.
Mark is kind of 'camera shy' so you won't see the two of us showing up
together in many photos but sure glad Gina snapped this one!



Tutti Designs - Love Doves

Friends!
Today I'm sharing a card  of Love using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.

Wedding season is right around the corner (in fact, my granddaughter was married over the weekend ... Oh My!  Where does the time go??).  So of course, weddings were on my mind when creating this card.



My focus die is the Dove's In Love die from Tutti.
TUTTI-209 Doves In Love

I have die cut it twice!  Once from red card stock and once from white.
 On the red cut, I snipped away all the inside pieces so I would have a red heart for my outline. 


On the white panel, I used a green alcohol marker to color in the ivy, added glue & glitter to my doves and once attached to my blue water colored background, I re-inserted the red hearts that popped out from my red die cut panel.

 To finish, I die cut the Love Word Set using the smaller cut as my sentiment.

 TUTTI-232  Word Set - Love


Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.

Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday

Hello Friends!

I'm excited to once again Guest Design for the Word Art Wednesday blog today!  Thanks Karen & team for being so gracious ... it's an honor to design with you ladies!

Here's what I'm sharing today . . .



Once again I have cut my designer paper to size then ran it through my printer so I could print this beautiful scripture passage directly onto the paper then frame it.  I really like the end result!  So much in fact, that I made another card using the same method ... the same but a little different.



Here is the beautiful scripture passage if you'd like to create & share:


The prize offering sponsor for this challenge is Stamps of Life



 I hope you'll come check out the other beautiful creations shared by the design team and then join in the fun.  I'll be back on the 24th with another beautiful passage to share for Word Art Wednesday

 Thanks for stopping by ...
As always ...

Tutti Designs - Time for Sunshine & Flowers

Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a card that I hope will make you smile, and it was created
using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.

This was a quick and easy card that could be use for so many different occasions!  I chose to make mine a birthday card since I'm in dire need of more ladies birthday cards.



The dies I have used today are:

TUTTI-183 Garden Trellis

I've die cut this die three times and colored the ivy only on the panel that will be the top panel when I glue all three together.    This helps add dimension without making my card to bulky for mailing.

Two sided designer paper was used for my background ... bringing all the focus to this beautiful trellis.

TUTTI-228  Word Set - Happy


TUTTI-229  Word Set - Birthday


Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.
