Amanda's Bachelorette Party!

We had Amanda's bachelorette party this weekend. It was a huge success! We planned a day-long scavenger hunt filled with her favorite things. Amanda was given a clue card at each location for the next stop.

Stop #1:
I hosted breakfast at my house, complete with an egg casserole and tuxedo strawberries. I made the "love muffin" boxes, which were filled with chocolate chocolate chip muffins.

Stop #2:
For the next stop, we went to Naked Plates. We all painted a dessert plate for Amanda which she gets to keep as a keepsake. This is the plate that I painted. I hope it turns out! :)

Stop #3:
Off to lunch for the next stop! We had a picnic lunch at a nearby park.

Stop #4:
We stopped @ Robinette's Apple Orchard to sample their wines.

Stop #5:
Another stop that involved food. Ha ha. Off to the Blue Water Grill for dinner. The food was delicious, and you just can't beat the view.

Stop #6:
A few of the girls saved room for dessert at Cold Stone Creamery.

Stop #7:
We relaxed at a showing of Toy Story 3. It was very funny and nice to sit down for a while. There were lots of laughs, and there may or may not have been a few tears at the end of the movie. Don't judge people. :)

Stop #8:
Last stop of the night. Back to the Matron of Honor's house for presents! We chatted and recapped the day.

I think that the bride had a great time. I know I did! We managed to pull it all off.

Weddings and birthdays...oh my!

The following cards were also designed for the card sets that will be given away this weekend. The wedding cards match the colors of the wedding, in hopes that the winners will give them to the bride and groom.

I used doodlecharms cart, as well as the sweetheart cart. Rhinestones, ribbon and stamps were added for embellishments. I've really enjoyed playing around with shadow cuts. I think they really highlight the final product.

Card Series: Welcome Baby

The cards shown below will also be added to the thank you cards, as part of the gift sets given at the shower this weekend. Each set will have a thank you, birthday, baby, and wedding card.

These are the baby cards that I came up. I used my doodlecharm cartridge. (I don't know what I would do without it!) I also added raffia and rhinestones for some fun embellishments. The stamp, from Stampin' Up, reads "welcome baby".

Card Series: You're Too Sweet

Yay! I'm back. I had the whole afternoon to craft away. And it was fabulous. I'm putting together sets of cards, which will be given away as a prize at a shower. A lucky winner will get to take them home.

This is a series of thank you cards. They went together really easy. I used my favorite cartridge Doodlecharms to create each of the "sweet" items. I also used a variety of stamps, and a ribbon accent.
