Scott & Jessica

This is a wedding announcement I did up for one of my online friendies, Jessica. I have met some of the neatest people and made some of the bestest friends online. I know it sounds strange, but it's true!! Jessica and I met through my blog ... amazing how small technology makes the world ... very cool.

She wanted something simple and elegant. Since she lives in Indiana and I live in Utah, we connected via Skype. Another piece of technology that I absolutely LOVE!! We were able to talk, laugh AND see what we were talking about as we planned out what to do. Made it sooo easy. This is what we came up with ... I just mailed them out to her last Thursday (which means she should be getting them today or tomorrow). I sure hope she likes them once she sees them in person!! The white paper has a pearly sheen to it. I wish it photographed better ... it really is purdy!! She is actually going to use her calligraphy skills and write out everything for the insides ... TIMES EIGHTY!! I can't WAIT to see how that comes out. I think anything done by hand any more sure beats stuff printed out on the computer ... makes things so special and unique!!

Last week I made 121 cards and a pair of earrings ... sheesh!! My stamp table is SMOKIN'!! To top it off, I have a friend who phoned me over the weekend and asked (begged??) me for help with her daughter's wedding announcements ... 500 OF 'EM!! I have a feeling I'm gonna be busybusybusy for the next couple of weeks, as she would like them done by Labor Day!!! YIKES!! "Calgon, TAKE ME AWAY!!" Smiley from you are too young to remember that, then you are gonna hafta look it up on youtube, 'cause I ain't EVEN gonna explain it!! It makes me feel OLD!!)

Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Pearlized White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant (on printer)
Accessories: Emily's Bouquet Embossing Folder, Marvy Scallop Corner Punch, Pearl Stickers, Whisper White, Satin/Organza Ribbon, Pop-Up Glue Dots

I love your card, so very elegant. But I refuse to accept that knowing the reference to Calgon taking us away makes us old, instead I firmly believe that it makes us classics!

Did Emily's Bouquet Embossing Folder come out a while back? I was trying to find it online without any luck.
