Wedded Hearts

It's that time of year when weddings are in full swing and my family is no exception.  My youngest brother will be tying the knot this summer.  I have loved these wedded hearts that I have been coming across lately and since everyone has their own special colors I decided to stick with black, gray, and white when making this card.  I really like how the embossed edge gives it that elegant look too!

St Augustine Pirate

Quintin loves pirates, especially Pirates of the Carribbean!  So it was only fitting that he got his picture taken with this pirate statue we came across while walking the shops in St Augustine.  This was also the year that we went to the new Pirate Treasure Museum.  I used one of the maps from there in the back ground because it was so fitting.

Sharing in your Sorrow

I am on a bit of a kick with the owl punch lately.  Any way that I have seen the punch used I have had to make a card with it.  I think my Therapy Card Nite girls are enjoying all the uses of the punch too!  With the Easter season that just passed I felt this was a fitting card for last months card night.

Cross on a Hill

What is Easter really without the cross and empty grave?  One of my favorite movies is the Passion by Mel Gibson.  To think that my Savior came and died a horrific death and rose again just because He loved us and wanted to save us is beyond comprehension.  As such this is a fitting card for this season.  The three crosses on a hill along with a purple ribbon hanging from the middle one.
