Fabulous News!

Good morning!  Today’s card is for a very special couple :)  My bonus son, Brian, (Tony’s son) and his girlfriend got engaged on Easter weekend and the dh and I are so excited for them!  They make a great couple, sort of like the old man and me :)

I wanted to make a little card for them to commemorate the happy occasion :)  We had dinner with them last week and got to see “the ring” and hear about the preliminary plans for the wedding next summer :)  We warned them that we like to kiss at the clinking of glasses whether it’s our wedding or not!  LOL  I’m using this month’s Sketch for You to Try :)  I wanted to make it bright and cheery with a bit of elegance.  And I couldn’t resist adding 2 small heart pins into the ribbon :) I remember how excited I was when Tony and I were engaged…it felt so good and everyone was so happy for us.  I know Brian and Ashlee feel the same way.  Ain’t love grand?

what’s in it?

stamps: fiskars wedding quotes, wms labels stamp

ink: versafine onyx, su going grey

paper: pti white, sweet blush, su curry, basicgrey dps

accessories: spellbinders labels and long scalloped rectangle dies, Michaels ribbon, Making Memories pins, pti button, stitching, gems
