two hearts...

Who doesn't love, love? It seems like this is the year for love in my circle of friends..engagements, weddings, babies.. We are all growing up too fast.. seems like only yesterday we were all graduating high school. While we all live in different countries, we all keep in touch. I just love social networking.. it makes life alot easier...

All that aside, one of my closest friends recently got engaged. I am so happy for him; we go way back-our parents knew each other before we came along; we even dated once. D is one of my best friends, an extended family member of our clan...I don't know what I would have done without our long chats, his advice through the years...he's one of those friends you keep in your corner for life...

I decided to take a different take on a congrats card; figured that everyone would give 'traditional' cards, and that I had to be different... of course this gave me an excuse to whip up a new template and have fun with different patterns, stamps and embellies... I enjoy watching cake shows on t.v. The work that goes into them is amazing.. This card is an ode to those fab cakes and bakers...

I know his fiance will get a kick out of it.. I do realize it is a bit on the feminine side.. but hope it's one of the cards they keep to mark such a joyous time in their lives.. The sentiment says it all... take time to enjoy the moment.. relish in the attention and excitement of planning, and starting a life together.
How exciting..
Congrats D, and welcome to the (extended) family R..
Best of luck
