Some Whimsical Dreams and Some Congratulations!

Happy Friday everyone!

Well today Jason has off and we are probably going to be working on some stuff around the house. This evening though I get to have a facial and get taken out to dinner by my wonderful friend Tracy!!! I am so, so excited! I can hardly wait!

Tracy actually came over yesterday and of course Izzy was uber excited! She just loves hanging out with her and making her read books. In fact she enjoyed it so much that she wouldn't even say goodnight to me! She just went right up to Tracy, kissed and hugged her and than ran off to bed! Man I couldn't believe it! Talk about making me feel like second choice! LOL!

Today is going to be all about The Greeting Farm I have decided! Why you ask, because this Sunday is Marie's big day!!!!!! I am so, so excited for her! She is such an amazing person and I can hardly wait to see her pictures! That being said, the Club Anya girls and The Greeting Farm Horticulturalists decided to give her some warm wishes. You can check them all out on the Club Anya Blog. But here is mine to tied you over until you get there!

I have to say this was my first attempt at the whole black and white thing and I definitely have a long way to go, but I was pretty pleased with the results. I mean how could you not be when you have the absolutely adorable Cake Topper set to work with!!!!! Anywhoo, I started this card by first stamping the bride and groom from Cake Topper by The Greeting Farm on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. Following last week's Friday Sketchers challenge, I layered on black and white card stock along with paper from GCD. I finished off my card by cutting out some hearts using my nestabilites, embossed it with my damask embossing folder and added some flowers! I hope she likes it!!!

Now for my second project for today, I wanted to create a little gift to go with my Whimsical Wishes card I created the other day. From the moment I saw the set I thought it would be fun to create a little jar that you could drop your wishes into. And here it is!

I hope Jess likes it!!! I simply took a dollar jar from Michaels and layered on brown and pink card stock along with some DP from SEI. I stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Wishes by the Greeting Farm on white card stock and cut it out using my nesties. To complete the jar, I added some ghost butterflies, bella baubles and some butterflies I punched out with my Martha Stewart punches. So fun and feminine!

Thanks for stopping by today! I would like to leave you today with one of my favorite toasts! Here's to you Marie!

May the most that you wish for,
Be the least that you receive!
