Summer Engagements - FMS149









This bright summery card is headed to a newly engaged couple. The heart clip and "diamond" studded heart keep with the engagement theme. The soft blue/green background is a watercolor wash over embossed hearts framed by a Strawberry Slush border. 

We also had another summer engagement recently.  To celebrate my mother's recent 89th birthday and Emma's upcoming second birthday we decided to have a four generation tea party.  It is a very exclusive group!  

Emma and I are clinking cookies and saying cheers in this first photo. I love that we are using my grandmother's china cups on a tablecloth crocheted by my mother and sitting on chairs that were hand caned by my dad.



And these two may be 87 years apart but they are definitely partners in crime!





Rita has designed a terrific sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  My card also qualifies for one of the recent Dirty Dozen challenges on Splitcoast.

I love this, Linda! Your watercolor background is so soft and pretty, and that's a fun sentiment for an engagement card. The tea party photos are absolutely precious!

*sigh* this is sweet on so many levels. First you start off with a pretty card destined for two just starting their lives together and then you finish a pic of four generations celebrating life! How wonderful this is!
