Wedding Thank You Cards + It's a Girl!


I have some good news to share as I am finally feeling better. :) We're expecting a baby girl this December--due date is 12/13/14, isn't that neat?!

I am 23 weeks along at this point. It hasn't been easy, but I know it doesn't get any easier, am I right? hehe It'll be our first child and we have a lot to learn! The baby market alone is overwhelming in itself! I'm just going to take it day by day even though my mind is racing! Suddenly everything feels like it has a timeline that is creeping up quickly!

One of the hardest things for me is gaining weight. I only eat gluten and dairy free foods for health reasons, so it isn't that I don't crave ice cream and pizza but I honestly can't touch it without risking unwanted complications. Sometimes I crave things so badly that it makes me want to cry. It isn't until the logical side of me kicks in that I can calm down. Boy, am I glad I have a few years of experience on this strict diet rather than having to deal with the mental side of things straight out of going cold turkey.

Anyway, this is the long overdue and drawn out wedding thank you card project I've been working on on and off. My good moments these days tend to involve eating and cleaning. I wish there was more time in the day!

They are cut from the Silhouette Cameo--with both sketch pen (for the wording) and blade. You would think it goes quickly, but the clearing off of the adhesive mat is quite a tedious task. I inserted a picture from the wedding in each card and layered vellum underneath, so that when you remove the picture it still looks somewhat clean. I wrote my message beneath the vellum for the same reason.

Wishing you a lovely week,
