It's July already!!!

   I haven't posted anything for awhile 'cause I've been so busy. This hot humid weather we are having off and on makes me sluggish and sleepy... We put the air conditioners in and feel some relief.
For Jenn's Wedding  Day
    It's been a busy summer so far. My brother, Hal and his family, came for a lovely visit this past month. It was so good to see them all. Hal and Charlotte are new grandparents to a sweet little girl names Amelia. It was a nice sound to hear the baby noises early in the morning.. I am going to miss that.. course I didn't have to get up and take care of the baby .. nice sounds, though.
   I have been a little busy with a wedding card for a past colleague at the school I used to teach at in Phippsburg. She is getting married in July. Hope she has a great wedding day. I loved making this card. I got the inspiration and the template from Lynn Pratt's card which I had pinned on Pinterest. Here I a link to that site so if you want the dress template it is there for you..Wedding Card
   I love making wedding cards. I haven't made too many 'cause most of the people I know are already married... Oh well... I had fun making this one.
Portland Head Light
   I used Lynn's template to make the dress out of white cardstock. I put it through my Sizzix machine with a Stampin Up embossing folder...love this look. I got the template for the tuxedo from another site called Lori's Stamps .com.  I cut out the pieces from black cardstock. The fun came in embellishing the outfits with pearls, gems, ribbon,  and flowers.
   I used a Spellbinder's label die cut  to put the sentiment on the front. I found the sentiment on another site I had pinned on Pinterest. I can't remember the address, but it's on my Board called "Cards" .
   I have had a great summer so far. My sister, Phillis, is coming up in July from Florida. I hope the weather holds up. We are all excited to see her.

   I am closing with a few pictures of my busy summer so far. Today we celebrate July fourth. I'll have more pics of food since we are having a barbecue at my  sister, Rochelle's,  home. They have  a pool.  So busy.....
