Wedding and Retirement Cards

Wow!  It's been awhile since I got to post here.  I've been extremely busy, but having fun along the way.  Hubby got bit by a spider, and since we do not have any health insurance (unaffordable), I was forced to become a doctor/surgeon.  I was really worried about his toe, but it's on the mend and almost all better now.  It has been a long time since I was Dr. Mom, but I still have it.  :-)

I was recently asked to make a retirement card and a wedding card.  Now, I don't make a lot of these type cards, so I was kind of at a loss.  The wedding card was to be whimsical, so that took a little bit of the pressure off.  I'll share what I came up with.

I recently got this House Mouse stamp, and by adding a hat to the mouse on the right, I was able to turn it into a groom helping his bride to get ready for their wedding.  I think I might need to add a veil or something to the bride.  I'll figure it out.  There is glitter around the edge of the card.

Then I remembered I had the HalfPint Hero and Heroine stamps sets (Gina K. Design), and decided I could put the bride and groom in a car.  Perhaps honeymoon bound?  I wanted it to be bright and cheery.  I think I achieved that.

On to the retirement card.  I love this Stampin' Up set called Sitting Here.  It's available here. What better way to start retirement than to be able to relax on the swing with nothing to do?  That would surely be heaven to me.

I made a few more cards that would be appropriate for retirement, so my friend will have to choose.

Happy to share my creations.  Till next time....
