Wedding Card and Gift

I was so excited about this present... first it is for a dear sweet friend of mine Nathan ... who won the girl of his dreams .... and is a real sweetheart!... he is like a second son to me ... he is special to my heart.... and his bride to be is a sweetheart herself... second this is my first time etching glass and its so so so so easy and I was so excited it turned out so pretty... and so perfect for a new bride ... I had a hard time deciding whether or not to put just an S for the last name or an AS for Amber Sewell ... I finally decided he would be happy if she was happy ... and getting your new last name is so fun... and she would likely be the person carrying the dish places that I went with the AS ... thank you so much for looking!!! Hugs Jeannie

Thank You Note... House Mouse

I am still working on Thank You cards for the sweet people giving Madison's shower.... I decided to do them all different!!... that is much more fun for me .... and maybe they will enjoy seeing each others cards... I love this House Mouse stamp so I decided to go with it and see if I could make it incorporate it into a card and it not be the whole card.... sometimes that is hard for me!!...
Wild Card
Rose cut @ 2 inches using the real dial size feature.
Corners cut @ 1 inch on the real dial size feature.
Opposites Attract
"thanks" cut @ 1 inch (I think 80% sure).
To color the stamp I used colored pencils and I blended them with a blending stump but did not use gamasol...I liked the bolder color I got without the gamasol.

Thanks in Brown Flowers

Ok Ok...I think that I may be addicted to these sketch challenges.... maybe that is good maybe not... I need a nice balance... this one is so totally the sketch..... that is what I don't like about the challenges you get lost in them... and I feel like this one happened to me this time... I like the card but I don't think it says "Jeannie made me".... Thank you so much for looking.... ~~hugs, Jeannie
