Hi everyone!  I first want to say a huge thank you for being so patient with me these past few weeks.  I've had so much going on that I felt I needed to take a break for a while.  I've been busy with the construction of our pool installation and during this process my husband ended up in the emergency room and he had to have his appendix removed.  He is doing much better now and he is since back to work, but he still can't lift anything over 10 lbs.  Of course you'd have to know my husband and how much he is enjoying the 'no lifting' rule because that leaves all the yard work from the pool installation for me to do.  And I never imagined how much yard work there would be once the pool was installed, but it's almost finished- thank goodness!  (I will have to post a picture of our pool tomorrow- it's dark out right now).

Today I'm taking the time to update my blog with our new Stampin' Up! catalog link.  Which reminds me, I have a few of our new Stampin' Up! catalogs available so if anyone is still in need of a new catalog they are only $10 each (which includes Priority Mail shipping anywhere within the US). I accept Paypal, money order, and cash.  Feel free to send me an email if you are interested in purchasing a catalog.  My email can be found at the bottom of this post.

The card I am sharing with you today is one I made for a card swap.  We were able to make any card we wanted and so I decided to make a wedding card.  This was a real quick and easy card to make.

I ran my white card stock layer through my big shot machine using my final press embossing folder, but I was sure to keep the lower 1/3 portion of my card stock outside of the embossing folder so that it would remain smooth (or unembossed).  I wanted the smooth portion below my ribbon so that I could stamp my sentiment in that area.

I colored in the dots on my embossed background black using my SU black marker.  I had to be careful to only color the dots- this was actually easy to do.

Next, I stamped my sentiment using my stamp-a-ma-jig so that I stamped it straight and then I added my ribbon and that's it!  A quick and easy wedding card!

On Monday I will be posting another card I made for the same card swap.  I used the new flower Stampin' Up! stamp set called Flower Fest.  This set is available in our current summer mini catalog (on page 20) and it's also in our newly released catalog.

Have a great rest of the day, see you Monday!
