Watt's Up?

The weekend is drawing closer! One more day at work. I left work a little early today (a whole 15 minutes) to run a few wedding errands. I stopped at our local visitor's center and they gave me 20 books about Bloomington to put in the hotel bags. We intend to give each hotel guest for the wedding a bag with a few things in it. I need to check the dollar store and see if I can find some bags. My next stop was the church.I wanted to check the aisles for the pew markers. I estimated 20 and when I counted today I found I only needed 12. YES! Less money on the flowers. They alone are over $1000. And we took most of the cheaper items they listed. Weddings are so expensive!
So tonight I have another birthday card for you.

The image and sentiment are from another Simon Says card kit. Not sure which month. The birthday sentiment is on the inside. It reads "It's your birthday!" I stamped the image on yellow paper and colored the heart with an R46 Copic marker. I grabbed a scrap of paper from my scrap bin and used another scrap from Tricia's wedding invitations for the accent color. Are you tired of seeing that Island Blue yet? I've been using it a lot since I bought 100 sheets and have lots of scraps from the invitations and thank you's. And after I had it all together I used my glimmer mist spray to spritz the card. I obviously didn't get it shook up enough with the big blotches and I wish I had sprayed the card before I added the image. But I guess it gives it character, right? LOL!

I am entering these challenges:
My weekend is busy. After David's bridal had to order a new dress for Tricia because they ordered the wrong size the first time (why they didn't measure her before ordering is beyond me!), we have another fitting on Saturday for alterations. Friends are coming for dinner Saturday night and we'll probably have Tricia and her fiance for dinner on Sunday. So I doubt I'll get much crafting done this weekend. I found out today that we can't do the favors we were going to for the wedding. We were going to buy single serving wine bottles and label them with Love Potion #9. But the venue won't let us bring alcohol in. I thought about getting bottles and fill them with something else and do the same thing. If you have any great ideas for wedding favors, I'm still looking. Her theme is Moment of Magic. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care!

I love this pretty blue color- and the DP is a great accent to the light bulb. The sentiment is perfect- and I love the accent of the Glimmer Mist! Oh, this summer is flying by and I am on the run! I am not keeping up with your wedding adventures- yep- I hear wedding are expensive......

So much to catch up since I've been gone. Now having vertigo doesn't help. Trying to read bothers me but I was so interested in read upping about the wedding and cost. I adore this little card do yours. I have to check out these kits.
