Drunken Stampers #131 - My Best Friend's Wedding

It's getting to be that time of year - time when all those crazy kids tie the knot! So what better way to celebrate than by playing along with the Drunken Stampers and a totally classic wedding movie?


Of course, I didn't do that ;) Not exactly...I went with the optional theme, and the great part about this week's optional theme? Blue has two meanings, of course.


Supplies: the saddest, saddest sun ever - Market Street Stamps; raindrop paper from MME; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Mustard Seed distress ink; yellow embroidery floss; Corner Chomper; clouds from Barb; buttons from Dollarama


I first stamped the sun in Mustard Seed right on to the patterned paper, and then pierced & stitched along the stamped rays. Nothing like a little stitching to make a simple card pop! To hide the messy back part, I did the stitching first & then adhered to the card base. The buttons were the perfect 'something' I spent quite some time searching for!



Our linky will be open until next Friday night, June 14th. Check out what the rest of the Midnight Margaritas made:



And now to batten down the hatches - it's the last couple days of my mom's visit, and we're about to get a boatload of rain! Rob's mom is driving up today (with lemon pies, drooooool) and we're all cramming in to the little cottage at the beach for my mom's 'roast beast' dinner, droooooool....the kids had a sleepover with them last night, and are having a 'guys only' pancake breakfast today while Mom comes with me to the market. They are STOKED.

Lemon pie. *ahem*

I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend too!
xoxo,
Jessi

So instead of the classic movie, you went with a classic song. Makes perfect sense to me, of course! ;) Great layout, colours and theme.
