A Beautiful Bella day

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend! I was so looking forward to having 3 days to myself (hubby planned a weekend of camping with the guys). So Friday night I had the girls over for a Stamp night aka stamp, gossip and eat chocolate night. ;) I don't think the party ended til after midnight, I so needed that girl time! Well the next morning around 8am there was this horrible noise outside my front door. I staggered to the living room just in time for the front door to open and Scott to say "I'm home!" Apparently there was a snow storm at his camp site so they packed up and came home...there went my 3 days off. *lol* But on the upside I did enjoy some relaxing time with my fella, went shopping at Contractor's Warehouse (omg love that place) and yesterday we signed escrow papers!!! It'll be a matter of weeks until we get the keys to our new home and the renovations can begin!

So the only stamping I got done was this one card on Friday night. I fell in love with this floral paper a while ago and never got around to using it. It feels wedding-ish to me since it's soft and elegant so I brought out my Bridalbellas. I have a cousin who is getting married in August and she truly IS a bella....this gal is just gorgeous! No clue what her colors are yet but I think this will be perfect for her bridal shower.

Stamps - Bridalpartybellas by Stampingbella, Inkadinkado sentiments

De-lurking here-I love this card. The DP is beautiful and who wouldn't love a Bella card?

Congrats on the house-it looks perfect. Roses are easy to keep even with no trimming. An easy tip: Banana peels-they grow strong and have HUGE blooms!!
