What a PERFECT time for an "and the story goes..." card:) It's that time of year when WEDDING BELLS are ringing and buying NEW HOMES are on many FAMILIES minds...
So, I've been in a "NESTING" mood lately...ya know the kind that put you in the mood for buying a place of your own to call home? BTW, heavens NO, I'm not thinking of nesting in the traditional way, lol...no more babies for this FRUGAL Scrapper...unless they are more grand babies of course:) (hint, hint, Dan and Stephanie)...I'm just saying that my love of having NO maintenance issues by renting a condo are being upstaged by my need to FINALLY hang something on the walls AND to let go of the feeling that things aren't PERMANENT.
Anyway...I have a VERY SPECIAL niece who is getting married in two weeks, so I thought I'd work on a card for her...due to my "nesting" mood, I decided to use some of my favorite Studio 490 stamps...now I know I've had these for a while, but they ARE exactly what I just had to use for this card.
So onto the card (oh, and THANK YOU, Karen for your inspiration).
and so the story goes...
Of course, I'm continuing with my decision to ALWAYS finish the insides of my cards...sooooo...
and they lived happily ever after...THE END
I made sure to leave some space on my card for a personal message to my niece and my new nephew-in-law.
