Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Wedding/Anniversary Card

Wow! I'm back! 
All my artwork is ready for Extravaganza and I can't believe I leave in less than 2 weeks now! And I actually had time today to sit down and create something... 
The Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is to create a wedding card. Although mine looks like a wedding card, it is actually meant for my upcoming anniversary - 18 years - and don't you know that it occurs the day I leave for Convention? 
I have always wanted to try a white card (I found this one on Pinterest) and I almost made it... but I thought it looked a little too plain at the end so I had to add some red to it. I apologize for the shadows as I photographed it in the evening and just couldn't get away from the evening sun coming through the windows.

Supplies used are CTMH unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Tulip Cardstock
Stamps: Card Chatter - Love
Inks: Tulip, Grey Wool 
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (not CTMH), Pearl Opaque Adhesive Gems, Foam Tape

I Will Be Back...

I know that I have been completely absent from my blog lately. I am frantically preparing all of my artwork for Extravaganza at Convention, which is just under a month away now. It is taking up all the time that I have because, being the perfectionist that I am, everything has to be absolutely perfect. I am spending upwards of 8-10 hours every day in my craft room, working on one project after another and the hardest part is that I can't share anything that I am doing with anyone until Convention! I promise to photograph everything and when I am back on the 15th of July, I will start posting the art that I made. I can't wait to show you my creations! In the meantime, try and be patient - there will be a lot of consultants tweeting and blogging from Convention if you want to keep up with the chatter and updates if you will not be there. 
By the way, I have met my weight loss goal and I have indeed lost 85 pounds! I feel terrific and I have even bought a dress for the Awards Banquet. I have not worn a dress in almost 14 years! This is a real milestone for me - and with heels as well! 

Meanwhile, please don't drop out as a follower - I WILL BE BACK
