Wedding Wishes

I think that my mojo is back...Just had to go shopping for some new paper to inspire me! This card was made for special friends for their wedding last weekend. When I saw the digital stamp, from the Crafty Pad, I knew that I had to use it for this card. Having a sketch in mind also helped me plan the card.
 I found this on a website featuring verses for handmade cards. Sorry, I don't remember which one. (I googled wedding card verses.)
 I also found this circle sentiment in my digital folder. It was framed with Just Rite stamps and a Spellbinder die. I often forget about decorating the inside of cards but this extra touch made this card just perfect. Since I did not have to mail it, I presented it in a clear envelope. It will surely attract the attention of the wedding couple!! ( As well as the money inside:-)
Materials used:
DP: Glitz it Now (AC Moore)
Digital Stamp: The Crafty Pad

Flip Flops

Another creative project that I decided to tackle was to embellish Flip Flops. I made the first two pairs for my granddaughter's teacher and her aide. Thought they could be part of an end of the year gift.

I have to apologize for the picture quality. I had to hurry to take the pictures so they could be wrapped and on their way. The teachers wore them all day so I presume that they liked them :) The bows are detachable too. I am entering them into the following challenges:
