To Have and To Hold

Hello to everyone! I am truly blessed to see all of you back here to visit me! I was so afraid that I would loose many of you after my 2 week absence! Thanks so much for sticking with me! Whew we had a rather stormy night here last night. We had tornado sirens go off last night and we rushed to the basement with our 2 little grandchildren and our 83 year old neighbor lady! Luckily for us, the tornado did not touch down here...however, I wanted to share with you some of the things that our little 2 year old said and the neighbor lady...while we were in the basement, our little guy kept telling me; "Gramma I want to go back to your house!" We have a finished basement and Jacob has never been down there in his 2 little years of life...we pretty much quarantine the children from the basement right now as they are all little and the stairs are treacherous for them. I kept trying to reassure him that we were at grammas house but he wasn't so sure. Our little neighbor lady...when the sirens went off I hurriedly went next door to check on her to make sure she was in the basement...as I hollered in the door, a little voice from down in the basement said, I am here...I was sure glad she was safe and told her so...as I was about to hurry back home, she said to me, "But I would rather be in your basement!" Aw shucks...got her (cigarette and ashtray and all...and we don't really allow smoking in our house!) down to our basement where we all stayed till the all clear was sounded. My hometown of Magnolia about 30 miles from here got hit as well as another neighboring town. We were lucky.

Well, guess I better tell you a little about the card I created for today! I had quite a lot of fun creating this card but just not sure if it all "goes" together for a wedding card! The silver background is actually some QuickKutz metal sheeting that I purchased at Hobby Lobby and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. Then the medallion in the center you should recognize from the card before this...it is the Spellbinders Lotus pendant cut in both gray and black cardstock and staggered over each other. The center sentiment is from the Wedding set from JustRite stamps...cut out and embossed with the circle Nestie. What do you think? Seriously...does this work for a wedding card? Would love our opinion. I hope to work more with that metal...it was easy to emboss and I do like the effect.
Well hope your Sunday is marvelous. I believe hubby and I are going to the local state park for a walk this afternoon. It is an absolutley gorgeous day here. Thanks tons for stopping by today. I plan to visit each of you a little later on in the day today. Can't wait to see what you have to show!
HUGS!
