Engagement Wishes

I hope you had a great weekend!  I can't believe the weekend is over already!   How on earth does it go by so quickly?!  This week is going to be insane.  I guess it will fly by!  The boys had their skating lessons this weekend.  Pictures posted below.  Caleb loves skating and is moving onto "learn to play hockey" lessons next week.   Jacob will stay in the "learn to skate" lessons.  He really needs to just learn how to stay standing once he's up!

Today's card is for a friend of mine who recently got engaged to her boyfriend!  She is a great customer who orders a ton of cards so how can I not make her a card to congratulate her?!  She happens to be Asian so I wanted to include a bit of red on her card and minimize the white.

I used a sketch from a recent Create with Connie and Mary Challenge.  I didn't get a chance to get the card created in time for the challenge but I do like to go back to these challenge sites and check out their past sketches to use!  If you're ever stuck...give it a try!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamps: Love and Laughter
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Other: Boho Blossoms Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Labels Framelits, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder

Caleb is all smiles doing his cross-overs!  Jacob...well, they put him on the end but when he goes down, the girls go down with him!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!
