Wedding Cards

Have dear friend in UK who has asked me to make her some wedding cards - these are half fold cards - big cards 5.5x 8.5 - so have to get creative with cuttlebug embossing! Know one of the brides loves purple so that is why I made that one. They will be in the mail tomorrow for her - hope she likes them!

More Cards and Glimmer Mist - brayered

Am still loving the new shaped cards (new for me - LOL!!!) and decided to give glimmer mist a try on photo paper (glossy) - here is what I created - love black and white - always makes a classy card and then there are the vibrant pinks and oranges.....

Putting It Together

Last night DD and I drove to Canmore to see Putting It Together - a Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant production featuring Stephen Sondheim's music - what a wonderful show it was - talented performers and a nummy dinner. Thanks Joey and Jodie for a wonderful evening with my girl! Fog patches on the way home which were a bit scary.......and again on way to airport this morning........yes she leaves in a little over an hour for LA - has long layover before leaving tonight for Aussieland. Gonna miss her but she'll be back before we know it for wedding - how quickly has the time passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Engagement pictures and a Family Dinner

Ali & Ben had their engagement pictures taken yesterday - we picked up the DVD today - wish I could share with you but have to wait until groom sees them - he flew back to US today to finish his work. Have downloaded them all to a hard drive backup so I have copy. They are just wonderful - taken on a very snowy day in Calgary close to our old house and Ali's favorite shopping mall.
We're working on invitations - finalizing velum, etc -
Tomorrow is free day so we are looking for urns for flowers (wedding ceremony) and have to see about boxes for the giveaways. Details, details, details.
Last evening we all went to Japanese Village for dinner - Ali and Ben's birthdays are in March and it is always something she looks forward to - supper at JV -a good time was had by all - and as usual we ate far too much!!
