Love is in the air....

Please scroll down after this post to see my exciting news!



Time for another great blog hop from the ladybugs and this time "love is in the air"! You should have arrived here from the awesome Mary J. Is she not talented or what?!  I have two cards to show you today.
I kept both of these simple so the design could really stand out and by the way, the stamps are on sale for a  limited time only.  Sorry for the pictures, I was fiddling with some new light bulbs and am NOT happy with them. This image is called Just Married.
And a little bit of cake! Aptly called The Cake!

And as an added bonus several of the girls are giving away some blog candy! I have a bit on here and plan to add a bit more to it as but the rest will be a surprise! Which means I am still going thru stuff to put in it!


 Make sure you leave a comment on every blog and on the challenge blog with which stamp is your favorite to be in the drawing and then head on over to Pinky and see what great ideas she has come up with. And make sure you have the challenge blog banner showing on your sidebar! This week our challenge is a choice, Love and Marriage or Anything Goes. And on a sadder note, this is my final posting with the Ladybugs. I want to thank them all, they are the most supportive caring bunch of women I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I have been offered a couple of new dt positions and am "spreading my wings" so to speak. Best of luck girls, I love you all!

Hi Amanda, these cards are really adorable. I love the little car won. Isn't that just the cutest Wedding card? I realy love it. I also love how you left the rest simple so that your design and stamps are really the stars. You sure have been a busy girl lately. I have been working over 40 hour weeks the last two weeks and bringing my laptop to work so that I can get around to everyone of my blog friends, otherwise I would never get anything done. Oh the sorrows of getting what we want. lol...Have a great day my friend. Hugs Lisa
