I don't know about you, but when I can make a card for a specific reason, it comes together much better. My card today (inspired by the PTI blog hop photo below), will go to my amazing stepdaughter. She is an artist in her own right. Her profession is graphic design, but she also takes the most interesting, story telling photos. Yesterday, she had her first showing of photography in an art gallery in Chicago. As of this morning, two of them were sold and one was pending! It makes me SO happy for her. She is definately going in the direction of her dreams. I will be sending this off to her tomorrow...

Good morning! When I went to Indiana last weekend, I made a little sidetrip to Archievers.... I found these cute little 3-D stickers with matching paper from Doodlebug. Well, I'm not a big fan of spooky, scary Halloween cards for my little grandkids, so these were perfect! (I've learned to put their name in my card title, so I can remember next year what I made and don't repeat something...lol, old age!) I went with Amy's fun sketch for Skipping Stone's Design this week, it worked perfectly for this little bug! I used my MFT star dies, and added some purple bling from i-roc (looks black, but it's not). I'll usually tuck in some money for them, since that can't come to my house for the treat!

When I learned this month's challenge was to Case-a-Diva, I knew right away I was going to Maureen Plut's blog, to case this fabulous card... http://buttonsandbling.blogspot.com/2011/09/true-love-story-never-ends.html
My nephew is getting married in early October, and I knew this would be a wonderful wedding card for him. I had to leave the beautiful dove off, which is so cool, and I didn't have any pins, so I just made my bow a little bigger and added some extra pearls. My frame is from a set from Stampin-Up, as well as the sentiment. Hope they like it, as much as I loved Maureen's creation...
My background papers are from Basic Grey's Cappella, and the ribbon is silk.
Thank you for stopping by! And thank you Moe, for your wonderful inspiration!
