Congratulations!

Happy Sunday :)

I recently needed to create a card for two very sweet ladies who have 'tied the knot'.
These ladies were married about a month ago, and I wanted this to be a perfect card for them, as they are very special to us!

And here is the inside, crooked lines and all!

Here is what was accomplished.  
First....I went to see my friend, Shirley, and 'shop' in her fabulous crafty room. She just happened (as always!) to have exactly what I needed - some little wooden 'potty people' pieces by Studio Calico.  

Also, Amy Kolling is one of my favorite paper crafters. She has such a delightfully fresh, clean and simple style, and I never leave her blog without smiling.  This card, by Amy, was my total inspiration!


That inspiration piece, along with some Amuse cardstock, heart dies, & ink, 
some stamps from Michael's $1 bin,
and a black Copic marker to color my people, 
were responsible for a perfect Congratulations card!

EDIT:  Exciting news!  The Kreate-a-Lope is available for purchase at Scraptownlady!
Check it out!!!

Hope your weekend has been wonderful.

Hugs,
Patti J.

You knocked this out of the park! Let's face it, this is a new phenomenon and it is new territory for a lot of people. This card, in my humble opinion, is perfect in so many ways. Not over the top, not understated, just right. You did this with style, dignity, and grace. Awesome. Hugs, Curt
