InStyle Stamps Wedding Week

This week at InStyle Stamps it's Wedding Week!

I love weddings! I love how pretty everything is, from the bride to her bridesmaids, from the flowers to the decorations, to the invitations and wedding favours.
My sister is getting married this July and it totally brought back memories of my own wedding!
I can't believe we'll be celebrating 6yrs in May!

For some Wedding talk and some wonderful cards check out InStyle Stamps.
They are also retiring some stamp collections which are on sale for at least 50% off!!!!

Here is my pic for the InStyle Stamps giveaway!

ETA: 4/26 :: Yay i won the giveaway! However, i'm still waiting for my prize. Hope it gets here soon, as there are some wedding goodies i would like to use to make a Wedding card!

ETA: 4/27 : Yay, my prize came in the mail today! It took so long because apparently it was held up at Customs and they opened the package!!! But all is good again!

Our wedding photo taken @ Queen Elizabeth Park, in Vancouver,BC.
We will be celebrating our 6th Wedding Anniversary at the end of May!

thanks for looking!

Spring is in the Air + Giveaway Alert

Today is Day 3 of my " No Sugar Diet" .... Usually one would take it slow and gradually decrease the sugar in take... but i went cold turkey and just stopped eatting sugar... yikes! haha... so far no serious side effects. Though i admit i'm falling asleep a lot quicker at night. No more twisting and turning the last few days. I suppose thats thanks to no sugar in my system. LOL

I'm starting on 2 cards for Mothers Day, hopefully i can complete it tonight when the kids are sleeping. I'm trying out the Microbeads!!! Let me know if you have any experience and if you have any projects to share =)
