Now Join Hands & Hearts

Good morning!  I have a super fun post today!  I mentioned last year that my bonus son, Brian, and his girlfriend, Ashlee, got engaged.  Well, fast forward a year and a half later and you have us making the final countdown to the big day.  Yesterday was my future bonus daughter in law’s lingerie bridal shower (wow, that’s a mouthful!).  I knew I had to make a special and unique card for such an occasion.  I dug out one of my favourite love sentiments and then lifted this photo from Ashlee’s FB page.  I think it is perfect for this Shakespeare quote.  I also had fun wrapping up the gift.  When I heard it was a lingerie theme, “naughty” and “nice” popped into my head…with a little experience and wisdom from yours truly {wink,wink, HA!}.  Here are the bags and tags…you’ll have to use your imagination for the outfits that went into each bag! {wink again!}  Meow!

Here’s a little tip on making these tags…when I went to tie the “NAUGHTY” tag, it was upside down!  I had made it exactly the same way the “nice” was oriented, which meant it was upside down when tied to the other side!  Luckily the die cut letters had fresh glue so it was easy to peel them off, flip the tag over and re-adhere.  Phew!

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back tomorrow as I host Day 7 of the Verve Diva Dare!

Oh my goodness. Laughing about what might be inside those bags...and I'm sure Brian can't wait to see what Ashlee received at her show yesterday! :) The card is amazing. Their picture together is perfect...and Brian's silhouette looks like a young Tony! The sentiment in vellum is simply perfect.

Fun packaging! I have made a photo card to personalize [so long ago I forgot about it!] Thanks for the reminder -- nothing is better for your "bonus" family! Love that also BTW - bonus!!

What a fabulous card! I'm sure it's one that won't get tossed away or stored in a box. It's a great one to display for years to come! Super fun packaging too! You're a pretty cool "bonus" mother-in-law!!
