Seashore Stampers Blog Hop

Guess who just discovered she didn't have a "FOLLOW" button on her blog. Doh! I now have one and it is now near the top right. Follow me wherever I go by the simple click of a button.

Welcome to our monthly blog hop, wonderful followers and random lurkers,

Summer is a beautiful season. Along with blue skies, sunshine, and flowers, come the weddings. It is the season of love! In another life, I may have been a wedding planner. I love everything about weddings! I'm excited to say, this blog is dedicated to the wedding card.

Let's get into the mood with some music!

The first card I created is a sweet and traditional one, Of Love. (Yes, I have decided to give my cards names. Why? Because it's fun.) I used the ridiculously delightful Hostess Set, In the City. (I must confess, with 60 stamps in this set, it is one of my all time favourites.) I was inspired by the "going to the chapel" stamp. The amazing heart in the background is one of the Bloomin' Hearts thinlits. The background colour can be changed to suit your needs. I often like to incorporate a wedding's colours into their card.

The second card was created when I was giving a watercolour tutorial to a friend. I hadn't used This Little Piggy yet and was dying to give it a try. When I remembered our theme for the blog hop, I thought, "Why not pigs?" Before I knew it, Pig's Special Day was born.

As always, with my blog hop entries, card recipes are available on request and the supplies I used are listed at the end of the blog.

In addition to the previous and next, check out the other Seashore Stampers Blogs as well: Erica's and Jean's.

Thank you so very much for making the time to stop by. 

Until next time, my dear followers.
