You're Invited!

Here's a sweet wedding invitation, not too casual, not too formal...

I used SU!'s Berry Bliss DSP, Close to Cocoa, and Pretty in Pink. To add texture, I embossed the stamps, layered cardstock, sponged, distressed the edges, and used ribbon. As you can see from the pictures, the Save the Date card slides out.

I used a corner rounder (with the guard/guide removed) to create the scalloped edge...can't wait to get SU!'s new scallop edge punch!

Corn and Apples...Yummy!

Whew! I just finished hauling all my stuff up the flight of stairs to my apartment...the Morden Corn and Apple Festival is OVAH!! And I think I even made a profit! I definitely made the cost of the table back, and then some.

I'll post pics of some of the things I brought along soon. This festival has a reputation for large crowds, so even though there are a lot of 'I'm just looking' types, there are also plenty of people who want cards! I also made a lot of contacts for potential custom orders.

The most enjoyable part of the festival was running into a lot people that I haven't seen yet this summer. The other vendors were really nice, and the weather cooperated beautifully. I do believe I'll be back next year!
