Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  We had a very busy one here with a wedding celebration on Saturday!  On Sunday, we saw the play...Wicked...so fun!

My mother-in-law's birthday is on Saturday, so I made her this card...

Many gorgeous flowers in the inspiration photo!  I was very inspired to get out some flower stamps and start stamping away!   Just a simple card, but the flowers do take center stage.  I'm entering this card over at City Crafter!

I'd like to share with you some photos of my nephew's wedding!  It was such a glorious day to have a wedding!  And, so pretty in Schedel Gardens.  Here are some photos....

Kristen and Matthew

Some of the wedding party with three darling
flower girls!

Mother of the groom, my sister, Lucretia. and
her husband, John.

We took a few photos of the garden before
the wedding.

My husband, Randy

Beautiful swan in the pond.

Gorgeous outdoor reception at Kristen's
parent's house with French country theme.

Father of the groom, Steve, and his wife, Karen.

My sister with her two sons...Jason and Matthew.  They
are both tall handsome guys!:-)

All my beautiful sisters...Christina, Cecilia, me, Lucretia and Donna.

Did we have fun??  Oh, yesss...lol!

Thanks so much for viewing my card and photos of Matthew's and Kristen's wedding celebration!

Take care!
