To Love and To Cherish….

Hello and welcome back OCS fans, to another crazy Tuesday;

As school will be done in a couple of weeks, this means that summer has arrived.  Children will be having some fun from no school work and this also means that this is the season for weddings.

For my card today, I have used the Just Married stamp and an awesome sentiment which says it all  from High Hopes Stamps.  I added some Nuvo Snow Glow Sparkle Dust around the border of the Scalloped Labels 1 Die as well as on her veil and dress.

Supplies used:

Hello Sunshine

Welcome back OCS fans;

Hope you all enjoyed the extra day off work.  Yesterday, being Victoria Day was a holiday thus extending the weekend.  Even though the weather wasn’t the greatest, this is the weekend that people will open their cottages for the summer.

The OCS Divas are showcasing the latest release from High Hopes Stamps called “Darling Divas“.  For today’s card, I used the adorable “AnnaLee“.  My initial plans for this card changed when I started colouring it up as the original paper choice did not match the colours that I used.

Happy Birthday

Welcome OCS fans to another crazy Tuesday.  At last the sun is out and it is getting warmer, which is a nice change from all the rain that we have had lately.

For today’s card, I used the Darling Ella & Chi Chi from High Hopes Stamps latest release called “Darling Divas“.  I’m thinking I should have done  something slightly different with the Ribbon Threading Die, but I’m not sure what.  I shall play around with it again for next week.
