You Ring My Bell


Good morning!  Today I’m sharing another commissioned card.  My colleague, Donna and her husband are celebrating their first anniversary.  Now, I must let you know that Donna and Duff are a super fun couple.  I didn’t know they were running off to Vegas to get married last Spring. I found out through Donna’s Facebook updates and photos.  Here’s the happy couple AKA Vegas Elvis and Marilyn :)


When I knew what they had done in Vegas, I jumped into action and made this card to welcome Donna back to work the next week :)  As Faith Hill would sing, they “bet on love and let it ride.”


So Donna approached me last week and asked if I’d make her handsome groom a special card.  It was so fun to play around with her picture and some masculine elements.  As much as I worry if the recipient will love his/her card, I do have fun with the creative process.  Donna was great and after we had the picture and sentiment worked out, she said, “Surprise me!”  I can work like that!  Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

edited to add: Donna loved the card when I presented it to her on Thursday.  I’m sure her husband will too :)
