Hey there, Chickadee

hey there, chickadee! Isn't this little birdie sweet? This rubberstamped outline and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I am slowly making my way thru this set and using all the images. I wish I had more time because I just love it!

Today, my DF and I have an appointment at the florist to pick out the flowers for our wedding. Since it is a Fall wedding, the colors will be magnificent. My daughter is wearing a salmon colored dress and the guys are wearing black tuxes. The colors will certainly pop! We also are going to pick up his wedding ring! I'm so excited - I'm ready to pop!! :)

Later this evening, we are going to my sister's home to celebrate my brother and SIL's 25th wedding anniversary. It is a surprise and the entire family will be there to celebrate. As I have said in the past....when we all get together it is always a good time. I'm sure it will be a late one!
Well, off to get ready - have a wonderful weekend! Cathy xxx :)

Every day is a gift

Every day is a gift.........when you have your health, your family and your friends. Life is a gift to be treasured. I recently found out that I am going to be a "Grandma". Although, my young son and his girlfriend could have made another choice - they chose to have their baby. I know that things are not going to be easy for them, but with some of the things that my son has had to go thru in the past - this will be much easier. I am happy for them! His girlfriend is not only beautiful but soft-spoken and loving. She will make a wonderful mother as my son will be a wonderful father - he is loving and hardworking and knows what he has to do and is already planning for his new family. I can't wait for January - to hold my little Grandchild for the first time!
This card was made with Basic Grey paper and embellishment and the rubberstamped sentiment is Papertrey Ink. A perfect card for a hot summery day like it is here today. Have a wonderful Sunday - Cathy xx :)

You're so Sweet

The wedding plans are full speed ahead! Today, my DF and I went to a cake tasting and chose our wedding cake. White chocolate and raspberry - ooooh yummy! Yesterday, my wonderful friend Katelyn met me at the bridal shop and saw me in my dress - she gave me the thumbs up and the dress was purchased. Very little alterations are going to be needed which is great. So to date we have, the chapel, restaurant, invitations, cake, dress, harpist and other small misc. We have a meeting in a couple of weeks with the florist and now I'm in search for a photographer that isn't going to cost us an arm and a leg!

This card was made with Katelyn in mind - she was so sweet to meet me yesterday and give me her opinion on my dress. She is such a great friend! Papers are by Basic Grey, ribbon - Offray, scalloped chipboard by Pebbles & Co., rubberstamped sentiment and image by Papertrey Ink.

Have a wonderful week - Cathy xx :)
