Did I tell you that Courtney had a shotgun wedding? Well actually it was just the rehearsal. While we all stood there practicing or were being instructed by the Minister, all of a sudden a gun went off and we all jumped or ducked, then two more shots went off. I was like what the heck? Is it hunting season? An episode of Cops? Then about 15 minutes later it did it again. So I guess the winery has guns go off at certain times of the evening to scare off the birds...well this old bird was scared. I would hate to live next door. We kept saying to each other "it's a shotgun wedding!" Ha!
The above picture is a sneak peek off the photographer's blog. Isn't this a beautiful picture? They are amazing photographers, a man and wife, and it was fun to see them taking pictures all day, and dancing a little bit holding their big cameras at the reception. I can not wait to see the final pictures. Not sure if I told you or not, but Courtney and Jay's Wedding guest book that you sign when you went in was actually a photo book that the photographer made with all the engagement pictures and she left white space on the pages for us to sign like good well wishes, or tips for the new bride and groom, I thought it was a super idea, and makes me think that My Digital Studio would be great for this for other occasions too. How fun would it be to make a retirement book, or like an Anniversary one, or a Birthday one...yeah I know your gears are going a mile a minute in your noggin' too.
I wanted to show you this beautiful card made by Shelli and her daughter's Sara and Shalae. This was the card they swapped at Founder's Circle. Now I need to get this stamp set cause I want to make this card. It is gorgeous! I'm such a dork I should have had them sign the back. I gave them three of my swap since they all worked so hard. I teased Shalae and said I would only take one of theirs...ha!

Here's some close ups, so you can see how detailed it is.
They even embossed on the bird, and the heart too, in fact the whole card is embossed.
I love it, don't you? This set is going on my next order. Oh and if you are interested in it as well, it is in the Holiday mini #123777 for wood mount, and #123779 for clear mount. You can order 24/7 in my on-line store . Don't forget about my Country Dozen Rewards.
Well I better be hitting the hay, I am slowly making a dent in my cards for class this weekend.
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.
