Easy Wedding Card

First, my card. Glittery is an understatement. I really wanted this card to shine. It is a 6x6 card, but with the scalloped edge it is a little bigger. The shapes are all from a sticker collection: The ribbon, which says BEST WISHES, is from Martha Stewart. The white glitter paper is just for the picture background and is not attached to the card. This card was fast and easy and sparkles just as much as the bride should sparkle on her wedding day :)


Celebrate the Occasion has their weekly challenge up again, and this week it is all about the love...and the ribbon. A wedding card with ribbon is this weeks challenge. So, what are you waiting for, spread the love and enter!
Go to Celebrate the Occasion and see what the amazing design team has come up with to inspire you. :) And while you are at it, think back on your good wedding memories.
I am in my second marriage, and as horrible as my first marriage was, my second is equally as fabulous. It is funny how life works out sometimes. Now, I don't normally do this, but it is my 7 year anniversary coming up and I wanted to post some cheesy pictures of my family for you. Here I am with the man of my dreams. He is 11 years older than I am and absolutely my best friend. The only seven year itch we are feeling is the need for a family vacation!


Here we are with my flower girl. Isn't she adorable?? She is my oldest child, and here she is 3 years old. They became instant pals the second they met and she still adores him.


A new happy family.


And here we are this year, this month. 7 years and 4 kids. My oldest is 10, my son is 6, my second to youngest daughter is 4 and my baby is 2. LOVE THEM!! (yes, we had 3 kids in 3 years- 2 of them surprises- the best kind)
And here is a picture of dear hubby and I the other day. We went to a farm, so of course we had to wear cowboy hats :)
We look older and we are more tired than we used to be, but we have a blast trying to manage it all. Family is the most amazing accomplishment I have ever done- now if I could just survive it we'll all be doing good! LOL. I hope you have an amazing day, and hug your close ones a little closer today. Time goes by way to fast!

Oh my goodness, your entire post is marvelous... Yes, I love your card and all the glitter (and The-Turtle-Cat, who loves glitter more than I do, gives you a paws-up!), but what I love even more is the incredible joy in your photos that follow... wow, wow, WOW!! You are beautiful and don't look a single day older -- Your family is beautiful too, and the love and joy that you infused into your post literally brought tears to my eyes... Thank you so much for letting me enjoy that snippet of your life...

Thanks so much for sharing your DT talent at CTO this week!!
