Be Inspired #19: Big News



I can hardly believe I never participated in Beate's Be Inspired (19) challenges on Tuesdays! Well, I can't say that anymore - I played this week! It was so fun because the colors are fresh & In Color (courtesy of SU!) with Tangerine Tango & Kiwi Kiss. Tuesday evening I got a wedding invitation in the mail for my cousin getting married in October, I had NO idea! We don't chat that often but I am really happy for her! She has been a single mom/grandmother for over 20 years & was caretaker for her mom who died April 2007. I made this card to send to her to congratulate her and will send a wedding card when the time gets closer since I won't be able to attend the wedding. I hope my sisters do, though! I used my Fresh Cuts stamp set and VersaMark pad, I love piecing scraps together although I don't do if often enough, I really love how this turned out! I'm sure Stephanie will too *smile*

What a sweet card to go with such a heartwarming story. I love to hear stories like this and so glad that after many years of her taking care of her mom she can now enjoy a new love and new life!
