Another Graduation!

The graduates keep on a comin! This card was made for a dear friend of mine, whose daughter graduated from college. Then this past weekend this same friend had a daughter who got married. WOW was all I could think...I shoulda brought my camera and didn't even think of it (sometimes I hate myself). This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to. The reception was held at a beautiful house. The flower arrangements were to die for. There was a waiter at almost every door holding a tray of hor d'oeuvres. There was a "grits" room with all the trimmings and another room with shrimp, crab dip, fruit, veggies, casseroles, cheese balls and crackers, marinated asparagus, etc. There were two open bars with every kind of drink you could imagine. Then there was the outside where the chefs were cooking chicken wings, italian sausage, mini hamburgers, etc. The tables with glorious linens and centerpieces were all throughout the house and on the outside, which is where we sat. The band was a mix of jazz, blues and rock...just amazing. The bride was stunning in one of the most beautiful gowns I have ever seen. Her mom did not look bad either...in fact she was just as beautiful!! Anyhoo, this was quite the wedding and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Oooppsie...I have got to get back to work...Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
