Then you shoulda put a ring on it...

{Giggle}

For some reason this card makes me think of that song a little bit.  I will be attending a shower at work for one of the most adorable people I know.  She will be tying the knot the first part of August so I wanted to make her a card.  I was trying a different color approach, stretch my creativity, and it turned out pretty cute.


Front of the card.  Lots of layers = Lots of Fun!





This was such a cute quote I couldn't help but put it in! Kids do say the darndest things!  Sometimes I wish I could be like that; say what is on your mind and people think it is cute and funny.  Good thing we have kids to say what we think!

Not that I would share my cricut toys... I get protective over my toys!  My hubby has used my cricut a couple of times and I find myself "supervising" the whole thing just to make sure my cricky is going to be alright.

Silly I know.
